Unhappy

reading multiple entries i did pick up combination rope bike lock from friend. shoud this be enough at hostel if bag is near me sleeping, or do you think one might have audasity to go through primary stuff sack, it's a kelty coyote if familiar,as outer compartment will have basics;flashlight, canteen, maps,etc. in other words, should i get multiple minature pad locks.
if i'm way off and there's a much more sensible way of doing things please let me know. paranoia is not an issue as i have no one to write home in search of replacements, and would probably want to leave bag at hostel when job hunting.
p.s. i also considered large canvas, launrdy type, bag that i could cinch and lock once, but i don't know if i would tire of pulling pack out every time i need something.

You should be alright with the combo lock.. I never used a lock and had no problems. Just be smart.. The bigger the room you are in (10-20 bed room) the more you should be on the "look out" for your bag.

Watch out on trains in Eastern Europe especially if you are a girl or you just have no common sense (like my former housemate! lol) This stupid idiot left her handbag on the end of the seat on a night-time journey while she was sleeping! What she was doing with a handbag i will never know but if our other mate (also a girl) wouldnt have had him in a headlock then she would have lost her passport, credit cards, ipod, money, mobile phone etc



damn how i wish i would have had my camera ready ha ha

Hey man, It also depends on where you are going, ususaly more "western" first world countries you dont have too worry about it so much, but the more hardcore locations I find you defenetly wanna keep watch. Also just talk too the folks in your room, if there is a guy saying shit man Im on my last dollar then your gonna wanna maybe put him on the top of your watch it list cuase he might look for some loot. Just be smart about it and dont leave you valubles in there so if someone does go in then all they get away with is some cloathes.
