    Dutchware swipped !

    Well, it seems like i had some titanium goodness swipped from me a few weeks back at french creek,, and it's my own fault for being a nice guy!.
    I had sold all of our regular Dutch clips because i was allways dropping them or having to dig in the bottom of the bag for them but when Dutch came out with the new g-clips i bought a set to try out, and got some dutch biners as well to put on my wifes rr to make it easier to take on and off her spindrift when the weather calls for it.
    So i put this dutchware in a small stuff sack and intended to install them at the campsite while we were there but we ended up leaving early and i never got around to it.
    While we were packing up the sack was in the driveway on my camping chair next to the car.
    There was one of those new flashlights and a lumunaid solar pillow light in the sack as well.
    Me,, being a nice guy went over to the campsite across from us and offered them all of our leftover firewood,, all they had to do was come and carry it away., i noticed the sack was missing soon after they were done and asked my wife if she picked it up and packed it away and she said that she was not sure.
    At this point the whole car was packed and we just wanted to leave.
    Today i went thru EVERY piece of gear, dumped out every bag,sack, container and my suspitions were right, it's all gone.

    From now on i think we will stick to camping with other hangers,, we all seem to look out for each other and i never have felt that i had to worry about my gear at a group hang..
    So my wife asked me tonight why i was looking around in my dresser drawers if i was so sure i took the stuff with us?
    I quickly told her that i was not looking for that bag anymore but that i was looking for change to start collecting the funds to get new Dutchware,,,

    Lesson learned..

    Brother that sucks. I barely had the scratch for my new/first hammock. I'd be pretty torqued if it happened to me.

    As a new what's a g clip?

    Shameful. Most campers are good-natured, too bad you ended up with a few of the dud's next to you.

    I have faith you still have them. Did you look in your ridgeline organizer and your hammock. I have found long lost headlamps in there. I hate to lose things. Drives me nuts.

    Pretty sure buy you know how it is, you just never really stop looking for a long time,, i have triple checked but i will be sitting here watching tv and find myself second guessing if i looked hard enough .. drives me nuts because i really liked the g-clips and was saving to grab a few more pair,, i want to switch all my biners at the tree to these .
    Give me some time and i'll have the funds to order some soon!

    You have my sympathy.
    Yet another reason I camp only in the back country.

    This sucks to the highest level. I have a huge fear of losing gear to scumbag thieves, (I have expensive tastes) so I'm always hesitant to leave our campsite to explore. I know the odds of this happening are very slim but it has and does happen. Sorry about your loss Zilla.
