I think this small practical tip fits here well..

What I've learned the hard way is that if you unpack your stuff and spread it out in your tent it's more likely not being stolen.

I was having bad luck at SUN Festival 2014 when my backpack was stolen from my tent during the first night.

I hadn't open it more than just taken the sleeping bag out and therefore it was probably just too easy to steal.


From there I always spread my stuff around the tent (small thing naturally hidden around) so if somebody want's to steal something it's more likely that not everything is gone at once  ;)

actually a good tip ! putting a valuable items under sleeping materas or inside sleeping bag can also help.

also finding people with car can help.


but the solution is to have a clock room / storage room at festivals. unfortunately is not always like this.

you are what you eat, stay healthy
