Response to What do you do to keep things from walking away while double-portaging?

Our first trip. Someone picked up a bag that was ours. Luckily he was still in hollering distance and we got it back quickly. After that experience I used strips of bright neon pink cloth on all our bags. Not nearly as much confusion! We also are very careful to stack all our equipment to the side of the trail and all tightly put together. It isn't fool proof though. I had to chase down a guy who picked up one of our fishing rods one time. Thought it belonged to someone in his crew (even though it was in our gear pile). Then again, it was a nice St Croix rod ...
