Esky & food thief in Grampians 29-Mar-2015 At 1:32:05 PM climbingjac
With the Easter weekend approaching, just offering a heads up that we had an esky and food within it stolen in the Grampians a week ago. Pretty annoying as there was a yummy lamb roast inside.

Perhaps the era during which you can leave everything out is sadly coming to an end. It was probably inevitable it would happen as the climbing population grows and we don't all know every climber in the country. That said, our thief was probably just a normal tourist person as opposed to a climber.

Consider locking things in your car if they'll either be expensive to replace, or stuff up your weekend if stolen and force you to drive out of your way to town to replace stolen items such as food (& always have a few backup items even if just tins of tuna, stashed in the car, so if you get stuck you can avoid a trip to town to replace stolen food. And yes, we did have backup food.)

Our thief is believed to have a nut allergy, since he/she took everything except items that were either obviously nuts or might contain them. How rude to take a lunchbox of mixed nuts out of the esky and leave them behind as a "no thanks, some of your food items are not good enough for me even when they are free" gesture.

Anyway have a great Easter weekend climbing folks, and don't pinch things from other people. It's bad manners and karma will get you one day.
