Yes Ernie,
I have had precisely the same experience on the trail when hiking with 
too much money in my secret wallet.
It seems that hiking with to much money in a secret wallet puts hiker 
dudes at risk.
He, he, he, he,....could not resist crawling out one more time for this 
one...seems the other did not get posted.
I wonder why?
