Same here. I would fully expect for that stuff to be stolen. I am very suprised it didn't happen earlier.

When my car is parked for shuttle NOTHING is visible in the car. Junk is in the trunk and valuables are in a dry box/bag in the stern of my kayak with me on the river.

I have lowjack in my car.

I never leave my gear at the takeout when I run shuttle unless someone sits with the gear. I always use a cable lock on my boat when it is parked at work.

I lock my car when I get out to road scout something that is 100 feet away from my parked car.

I never leave my garage door open, I never leave my gear in my front yard or in my driveway, my garage door is always locked.

Almost every single stolen item post I see is from someone who doesn't do these things.

You cannot enable thieves. It just encourages them. I hate thieves. The only thing I can do about it is to not give them candy like that.

"this is why you don't have nice things" it sure would be convenient to leave your skis at the bottom of the hill so you didn't have to carry them from the car... but... would you?

Maybe I misread your post. Did you want info on your missing stuff, or did you want people to preach to you about leaving your stuff around. Please clarify.

Yup, I am a naive jackass. I paddle an All Star with over 20 pounds of gear for taking photos, I recently got a Speeder so now I can take everything including the Deep Cycle battery and solar panel.
I tell my kids to not leave their shit around, blah blah blah. The point was intended to be - I tucked my gear away tightly between rocks in a spot that is rarely accessed, and it got ripped off. I'm not a thief and don't expect the boating community that boats Browns at 240 CFS to be thieves either, maybe the summer Joey but late season low water boaters I don't expect this.

You are all right - shame on me and I should quit crying. But really? come on, why you gotta go stealing someone's stash?

Weak, loser, and just plain rude will be my opinion until someone can offer a good reason why it is MIA.

if you come upon a stash of gear and think it is fair know its not yours so leave it be and quit being a thief and trying to justify it. we all love the river and should have respect for it and each other.

ps all you guys contradicting and justifying must have a thief mentality to begin with

Bummer you lost your stuff. Kind of puts the pale on the river community. An added bummer because now you have to carry all that gear with you on a daily basis. Or maybe buy cheaper stuff and don't sweat it.

Fu...'n thieves........they all need to be sodomized till snot runs out their noses.

On another could be fisherman or someone other than a boater in the canyon during these low water months.......till you find out's hard to put the blame on one group.
