Back Pack Pro Tip - buy a battery powered timer and scavenge a few lengths of wire - leave that timer ticking away loudly in the top part of your pack with a few bits of cable visibly routed hear and there - no one will go near your shit now, might even be a big area devoid of human life around it ....

It takes a while to get used to, but just walk in/around with your pack on. I've only been in like 3 situations where they told me to leave my pack outside...its so freakin' big they know I ain't setting it down to jack a bottle or something.

When I was in Spain I would lock my bag in a locker at the Supermarket, it 50 cents to open the locker, you get it back when you've finished, I used to leave it there until closing time. Other times I've taken individual unimportant items out of my pack and hidden it in bushes. My motto is never hide anything you can't afford to lose. Now I would just hire a locker in a 24hr storage unit and leave my stuff there.

We don’t really have those here.

We don't have these lockers in supermarkets here in England also, I only know of Spain having this facility. It might be useful for anyone here planning to go to Spain right? And storage units they are everywhere.

I do as I please... and keep my pack on my shoulders where the weight of the Universe keeps my back straight and my buttocks' clenched tight.

I cross those spy detectors in to the megamarts like I own the place.

Which I covertly do through the 7th order of pastacrypto fanservice observers union...

Other than that stashing your bag under a nice pine tree that reaches the ground cover is also nice.

I slide mine onto the bottom rack of my cart and shop like regular. People are usually too busy with their own shopping to look down. Having AC and weight off my back is nice sometimes.

If someone really tried to go for it, they'd have a bad time since it's pretty awkward to fully yank out.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
