thieving bastards.

Nothing to do with climbing. well maybe something
Went to my local beach (middle of nowhere) late yeste arvo. Tied my tevas together with a bit of string i had in my pocket and left them on the beach. Mucked around in the water for about 40 minutes, no more than 50 meters from my sandals and seen 3 people walk past, went back to my sandals, -GONE- some low life scumbag, S%$T eating schmuck (look up the meaning of that word) had stolen my stuff no more than 50 meters from me, and left the string behind. Fair enough you may say, maybe someone needed a pair of sandals, but who are they gunna fit?, there size 13!!

Moral of the story. Dont leave nothing unlocked etc, unless youre right there, like 2 foot away because thieves are a very brazen bunch willing to take some big risks for some small rewards.

Even being within 2 feet won't help. I got pick-pocketted once in paris (not unusual) just near the Eiffel tower. There's this photo I have taken of us with the tower in the background .. and off to the side this guy standing in the shadows just watching us. I bet it was him. The Bastard. Not only did he rob me, but every time I look at the pic, he still gets to torment me ...

Dissapointing but not unusual.

I had my wallet stolen from my car years back at Smiths beach (wasn't difficult as any key would unlock the door!) while I was out surfing. Didn't even realise till that evening. Affer getting in back into the car in my wetsuit (just thought I forgot to lock that door), driving to Flynns and surfing some more till dusk.

Bastards drove straight to Franskton and went to town with my Visa card!! Fortunately I didn't have to pay for the stereo and other items they bought. Eventually a kind local found the rest of my wallet (minus the CC 1 km up the road from the Smiths Beach carpark) and handed it into Police.

You're right - nothing to do with climbing. Given they were size 13, perhaps someone mistook them for bodyboards?

Or wakeboards.

...snowshoes for wannabe mountaineers?

>willing to take some big risks for some small rewards.
This sounds like climbers to me!

Perhaps you should have put your wallet and keys in them. No one would ever steal them then.
