Yeah, I actually let the visitor center know and they did say someone filed along time ago, I think they're still looking for the missing item report.

I think this shirt belongs to the two bikers I said hi to on the back trails in Bonelli last night. If you lost your Novara windshirt last night let me know. although, it is very nice and light...never mind, disregard this post.

So for me, when a new thread is started, I get An email automatically. I think this is referred to as "following" the forum. however if somebody responds to an existing thread then I'm not notified. So if I post in this thread about the very nice wind shell I found at Bonelli, nobody will ever see it unless they think to read through this thread right? Should I start a new thread or is that frowned upon here for the purposes of Lost and found? This seems like a very nice brand new shell and I would just like to return it. I know when I lost my Patagonia Houdini it hurt pretty bad and I haven't been able to afford one since.

Your call. I made this thread to contain all lost and found things, but the point is to get the gear back to the rightful owner, so do whatever you like. If for example you made a new thread about it and they saw it, contacted you, and got their gear back, I'd close it once everything was taken care of.

Staggered off Ontario Peak in heat.  Walked back to ice house, down to Baldy Road next to the sign around the corner in the pullout where I carefully collapsed my poles, laid them in the dirt and drove the heck away.

The problem is always at the car, isn't it?  I won't tell you how many times I left the gps on the roof and had to come back down the trail to get it.  

If you find them, I'd be happy.  They've been all over the world.  

If not, I'll go shopping.  And I'll still be happy.
Very Happy

There is a use trail that drops steeply into Sharps Canyon from Glendora Ridge Motorway just west of Glendora Mountain Rd. After the trail fades, somewhere beyond the second set of ropes, I lost my blue Samsung PL210 digital camera.

Howdy All  Smile

I had a wonderful hike up Register Ridge to Baldy and down the Bowl. It was fairly clear and I could see the Sierras and ocean. Had the summit to myself from 8:30 AM to 9 AM. Only problem -- left the little orange SPOT guy on the summit and didn't realize this until I was back in Riverside.

If anyone happens to be up there and can retrieve it, I'll pay for return shipping and provide a small reward.

Miles of smiles,
Ellen

Sorry to hear about your left spot, but how's your right spot?  Wink

Seriously though, did you leave the tracking on?  Is it still up top?

My discovery on Thursday might be related. I was at inspiration Pt. Thursday at about sunset. The combination of items lefty behind was peculiar. A light sleeping bag, a blanket. Small luggage with wheels, the kind you might take for an airplane. One small carry bag. So obviously the person(s) is not a regular camper.
In the travel bag were a business card for a therapist, another card that had notes scribbled that are worrisome. The combination of the very unusual carrying bags and the notes sparked me to look around. I didn't see anything else in the area. I did turn the business cards and notes to the Altadena sheriffs Thursday evening while returning. I have a couple pictures of the items left at Inspiration Pt on my iphone just in case.
OH YEAH... their was also a couple phone adaptors, to the best I can recall, I remember seeing the Samsung name on it.

PostPosted: Wed Jun 11, 2014 12:03 pm    Post subject: Lost Wedding Ring -- FOUND! Reply with quote

Pretty much a long shot, but if anyone is heading to Charlotte Lake (just off the JMT near Kearsarge Pass), I lost a man's wedding ring there this past Sunday.  It's titanium (silvery in color), so no great dollar value, but of course there's sentimental value.

I camped at the west end of the lake just east of two large Knaack brand brown/tan metal tool boxes that are presumably used by horse packers as food storage boxes.  Note that these boxes are not the NPS supplied bear locker which is further east.  From where I was, I could see the two tool boxes out of the corner of my eye, so I was close, just east of them.

I've marked the approximate position on a topo map.  Note that the position of the trail is wrong on the map.  The trail ran below my position, not above it.  If you zoom in on the map, you should be able to see where I've sketched in the corrected position of the trail.

Yep, major long shot I realize, but if anyone is out that way, look for it on top of a rock just east of those two tool boxes.  

Much obliged,

HJ

In case people don't know what I mean by a Knaack tool box, this is a big, honking tool chest, the kind that gets left at a job site.  I think they're about 4 1/2 feet wide and maybe 3 1/2 feet tall.  Big.  I have no idea how they got these things up there (there are two of them), even with mules.



There were two of these, about where I've shown them on the linked topo map in my first post.  I was in a flat area just east of the two tool boxes.  I could see the closer tool box quite clearly.  Maybe I was 30 yards away.  I was above the trail even though the topo map shows the trail higher than where I was.  The topo map is wrong in that aspect.

So, the references are:
1.  Just east (30 yds?) of the two big Knaack boxes.
2.  Above the trail.
3.  In a flat area (basically a camp site)
4.  West of the outlet of Charlotte Lake.

The ring is most likely still on top of the rock that I seem to recall that I set it on.

Hi, Jim...

Try posting at SummitPost, in the CA forum.  Lots of locals on there, and maybe someone would be willing to run a mission for you.  If you don't have an account, I can post a link to this thread if you'd like.


Good luck!

 Ah!  Now, I hadn't thought of that.  I've posted stuff on the local LA forums, High Sierra Topix, Facebook, etc., but SummitPost hadn't occurred to me.  Thanks for the suggestion.

A PCT Through Hiker that I know just looked for my ring earlier today, but he didn't find the two large jobsite type tool chests.  It occurs to me that maybe I just got lucky with spotting them in the trees, so I wrote up a hopefully better, more detailed description below.  I hope this is clearer.  Feedback welcomed.

MORE DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
If one were walking west on the trail along Charlotte Lake, one would first come to the ranger station, then to the NPS bear locker, and then to the west end of the lake.   As the trail draws even with the west end of Charlotte Lake, it is some distance away from the outlet stream.  As the trail proceeds further west, it turns a bit to the left (~SW) and comes closer to the outlet stream.  If one looks to the right (~NW), there is a bit of a rise with a pretty faint use trail going toward it.  If one were to follow this faint use trail, there is a flat area, suitable for a large group to camp in on a sort of bench type area that is just above and slightly to the north of the Charlotte Lake trail.  West of this flat area there is a bit of a rise, the crest of an indistinct ridge.  In an cluster of trees more or less on the crest of the indistinct ridge are two large jobsite type tool chests.  The brand name "Knaack" can be seen on at least one of the tool chests.  These tool chests are similar in size to a NPS bear locker but are a bit lighter in color.  The eastern most of these two tool chests can be seen from the above described flat area but most definitely cannot be seen from the Charlotte Lake Trail.  I lost my ring in the flat area just east of the two tool boxes, perhaps 30 yards east, perhaps a bit less.  As I recall, I set my ring on a rock that might have been about 18 to 24 inches in height while I washed up.  I have revised slightly my topo map of the vicinity; I have now sketched in the faint use trail using yellow dots.  Note also that the tool chests are on the crest of the indistinct ridge (placement approximate) and that the lost ring location is just east of the tool chests.

Congrats, Jim!

I'd say you beat the odds.  Glad it was a happy ending.
Yeah, talk about your long shots.  

Tim, the guy who found it, isn't done with his JMT hike yet (probably Wednesday), so I don't have it in hand yet.  Hopefully it continues to work out.

I wish.  But God smiles upon whom he smiles.  

We had a collision with a deer while we were on vacation last week at 70 mph at 2:00 A.M.  People die in such things and/or vehicles get totaled.    I lost a right side mirror.  All things considered, that's a pretty good outcome.


Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket...  Wink

Of course the real "luck" is the gal I get to be with every day:


And the fact the we are blessed to have a daughter:

I found the lower section of a BD Trekking Pole (including the tip) at the Mt. Waterman Trailhead on Saturday.  Well, the use trail trailhead I should say, not the crappy official trail head that is so oddly placed further up the road.

Let me know if you lost it.
