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.

Found a camera while hiking up San Bernardino Peak yesterday. If you think it's yours, message me with a description of the camera (brand, model, etc.) and I'll try to make arrangements to get it back to you.

Aye, Mike they do.  I look at the pictures I took a year ago, and she looks so different.

I come home now, and she crawls in my lap and says "I love you daddy."  About 10 years from now, she'll have purple hair and will hold up a crucifix (as though I were Dracula) when I come in the room.  Sigh.

Found a camera today (8/31) on the PCT between Vincent Gap and the summit of Baden-Powell. If you lost it, PM me with a description and I'll make sure you get it back. If you know someone who lost a camera, let 'em know I may have it. Thank y'all.

Some time ago we found a rather nice wind shell type jacket in one of the rock rings on the summit of Mt. Baldy. If you are the owner or know the owner, please get back to me with a description so I can get it back to you.

Did any female trail runners lose an article of clothing on the PCT going south from the Snow Creek Trailhead? Snow Creek is in the San Jacinto Mountains, a bit far afield from the San Gabriels, but I know of at least one trail runner who posts here who also does trail running out that way.

Trailhead pic:


Describe the article, and it's yours.

If anyone left a pair of boots at the Manker Flats Trail Head contact me I have them. They could have been left Wednesday, Thursday or Friday morning. Pass the word on other boards so we can get them back to the owner.

I found something on the dirt road from the ski lift parking lot up to the Manker Flats dirt road today at about 3pm.  The only hint you get is they come in pairs....and the one you have is now useless to you w/o the one I found. Identify it and you will get it back.

Hiking pack has gone missing.  Might have been left near the top of the pavement on Mt. Baldy Road, near the sign for the ski area.  Red and gray Black Diamond.  Don't believe that's where it went but can't figure out what happened to it so figured I would try here.  Thanks!

Hi all,
This past Sunday on 6/14/15, I believe my Big Agnes Air Core sleeping pad fell out of my backpack.  Probably came out on the Icehouse Canyon trail near the trailhead.  Its maroon and was in its stuff sack, with my name but no phone number on it.  Send me a PM if you hear anything. My hope is hikers are good people and will try to find a way to get gear back to its owner, hence this wonderful lost & found forum.
Thanks,
Steve
