Ok we have a tent, a huuuuge windbreak and a camping chef stove to go on top of a folding kitchen stand thingy, which has shelves to keep pots and pans etc on.

My question is- can I leave stand, stove, etc outside all the time hidden behind the windbreak?

Or wiil somebody nick it?

Wadda ya think? grin

I'd leave it out. DH usually brings it in and tells me I'm too trusting.

Leave it. We do.

Leave it outside. Whole tents with their posessions are left there all day and you can't lock up a tent.

Thats my thinking, I was just worried that about leaving it on 'display' as it were.....

We leave ours out (though it did all blow away one night when it was very windy grin)

Always leave mine out, never had a problem

I need to show this to DH obviously.

Hmmm no 'nays' yet looks like its staying out in the rain glorious sunshine next week.

We leave ours out in the extension at the front. I thought it was common practice tbh?

'Tis my first time camping with all the equiptment

In previous years we've just gone with friends who had their own wink

I'd leave it out too. The only time i'd move it would be because it was either very wet or very hot (thinking gas bottle...). We're off again camping this weekend too (our 3rd trip so far this year!). I love camping!

leave it out all the time grin. camping involves a large element of trust me thinks.

Anyone else care to comment?

(Just a polite bump really) grin

WhereTheWildThingsWere Fri 01-Aug-08 19:07:52

lol at dodgy neighbours, as we are camping with friends....

Off in the morning, wish me luck grin

We tend to put most things in the boot of the car and lock it tbh.

But then we are (probably) over cautious Londoners.

Leave it out.

iamdingdong Fri 01-Aug-08 19:20:16

Troutpout Fri 01-Aug-08 20:11:48

Never thought to bring it in tbh
