    Is it wise to lock our tent up? Or will people think that if we've locked it we've got something worth nickin? Which we wont have....

    Cheers :beer:

    Completely pointless. If someone wants to get in they can just cut a hole! Putting a lock on it makes it look like you've got something in there worth nicking.

    If you take anything of any value, leave it in the (free) lockups when you don't need it. I did this with my camera the last few times and it was great. They're open 24 hours a day for access too.

    Not really worth it IMO mate, if they want in a pen knife or lighter will gain them the access.

    I'd rather sleep in 'robbed' tent than a 'ripped' tent.

    Yeah - not worth it mate. Will just invite trouble. Good idea to have a chat to all the people around you get to know faces , then you all look after each others tents whenever anyone is around.

    Good thinking!

    The only thing that will be valuable in our tent will be the booze! :bdance::beer:

    Totally agree. I also go with the philosophy that I don't take anything I'm not prepared to lose, have stolen or be irreparably damaged by mud, water etc. The only valuables I take are phone/camera (same thing now) and cash, both of which are with me at all times. Thanks to my OCD compulsion to check my bag every 15 micro seconds, I'm usually ok, even when totally mullered!

    Yeah, what everybody else is saying,If you padlock your tent you might aswell have a flag saying,"where not in at the moment,so please cut your way in and feel free to take what you want".

    I'd guessed rhyming slang: "Muller Light" - "Tight"....
