    Back in Sarfend for a while, then back to RSA.
    Sorry people but I've got withdrawal symptoms - haven't seen a gassing thread for ages so I thought I'd just wake up some other gassing thread fans and sit back and enjoy :)

    It's a fact GW.....The latest incident July 7, 2016 campers on the road suffered a robbery aboard the motorhome after they were first put to sleep with sleeping gas. Offenders use a canister-based ether, a product that is no longer sold here for starting diesel engines, it is still found on sale in former Eastern block countries. Lets be careful out there.....(y)

    Oh yes. I though it rubbish but recently met three people who knew four people who know a case of a whole rally field of motorhomes knocked out by gas and all the occupants raped then robbed, men and woman. There's equality for you. Some will never recover, some say the MH full of Nuns recovered well and go camping there every week now.

    A few drops on some cotton wool is enough to cause unconsciousness so a can full could knock a elephant out.

    If a full can could knock out an elephnat why no dead humans? or dogs, enough to knock out a human would kill a small dog
    can't believe the t.leaves would be bothered about after effects.

    Its also very inflammable any spark or naked flame would set it off, surprised that there have been no motorhome roasts.

    Yes I'm afraid tiz true, the lead up is generally a meal of Indian Nosh followed by a couple of Cobra Lagers:drink:, then all washed down by a couple of litres of "Purple Death" Red Wine.:wine:

    Then leaving a door unlocked, and your handbag containing £2000 and Camera which was specially made by NASA on the front seat, along with, in my case, a brand new purchased that day for cash, 36 inch bar Stil Chainsaw with Diamond tipped cutters, which I'd lost the receipt for. My wife's (The Duchess) Tiara once worn by Boudica, the orange stains roman blood. And last but not least Long John Silver's wooden leg :whistle2:

    AND! If you don't believe me, that makes two, 'cause the Insurance Company didn't either:hi5::lips:

    It is true, but in my case the only thing that I discovered missing in the morning was half a bottle of Rum and all the ice in the fridge! :D

    Really?

    Does this mean it's time for the cycle to start again?

    Can we expect new grey water, poo and A-frame threads soon?

    No scotsue, this gas has been tried and tested by the thieves for a number of years in the eastern block. They calculate how long it will take before it will be safe to enter. then open the door and the gas is soon dissipated giving the thieves just a short time to get what they want. There has been a number of reports where one of the occupants woke up to find someone inside their motorhome yet didn't hear them break in. That's the gas not taken full effect or the thief not getting out in time.
