Agreed! I always stash twenties here and there. I once had an experience where I left my wallet, including my cash, lying on a gas pump in Rosansky, Texas. I rode on. I farted around in Smithville for awhile, visited the state park there. When I geared up to jump to College Station I decided to buy gas. No way bucko!just for good measure always carry emergency cash with in a safe place.
I had to talk a desk clerk at a gas station into trusting me enough to let me gas, go back to Rosansky to retrieve my billfold, (fortunately turned in by an unknown ten-year-old kid, cash intact.) then gas again, return to Smithville, gas again, paying for both fill ups before heading to College Station.
I said, "NEVER AGAIN!" Since then I distribute cash in pockets, pouches and day packs because I always want to be able to rummage and at least gas up and buy a Gatorade... or two...
