The first thing I do when I reach my campsite is to stash all my real-world-ware (wallet, cellphone, house keys, ...) in a spot in the car. Then I lock the car and forget about that shit until Monday morning.
Like technopatra , I once had a moment of anxiety out by the Rubber Duck near the trash fence at 3:00 AM about my house keys (did I remember to stash 'em?). But I quickly decided that if I had indeed lost them, it was too late to worry about it now. So there wasn't much point to think about it until Monday.
It turns out that I had stashed the keys on arrival.
