Once I get inside and get my spot (always near an aisle), I make friends with my "neighbors" and offer to watch their stuff if they want to walk around. Then when they come back, they watch my stuff. I have never had a problem.
Yes locked up 2 bikes together in ED2 at 3am Thursday night last year and they were gone at 7:30 that morning. With anyone being able to cruise the campground and such huge crowds its just not the same as previous years. 08,09,10 left everything out and had no issues. now that I've lost my virginity so to speak I'm going to be alot more careful.. I couldn't handle the crowds inside, so I just forked over the big bucks for reserved seats...expensive but so worth it.
We've always been a big group, gone in and set up our blankets and chairs and then head back to camp. Never had anything taken from inside the venue, but our areas did shrink when we returned. Not a problem as we took more than enough space when we set up. This year it's just me and the hubby so we're in reserved seats. But we sure will miss that lawn chair atmosphere!
