[quote:cb47124269="redford"]carry a big black trash bag and place your gear inside. Now place your garbage where someone would have to go out of their way to open and invesigate it. Scan the area for home bums.
Find a porta-john and put your own lock on it.[/quote:cb47124269]
Or if it's a really big city go from shop to shop, cafe to cafe, until you find someone nice to look after it.
But generally, keep your sh*t light! I personally love having my house with me wherever I go, unless I'm going partying or something.
