HELP!! LOST ITEM @ Alifia-Reward
« on: April 20, 2008, 11:04:51 PM »
Dear SWAMPers,

Please Please Please HELP!

I'm hoping that the Forum can help me locate a lost item!

Today, while riding at Alifia, I took a spill on the "High Road" drop on Moonscape (at about 12:00 noon) and lost my Garmin Forerunner 305 wrist GPS as I was tumbling down the hill! I didn't notice that I had lost it until I was back at the campsite. I went back to look for it but someone had already picked it up. I heard that someone was asking about it in the Trailhead parking lot, but I was on North Creek heading back to the campsite at the time. All of the data that was on it is extremely important to me! Help!

It is red-faced, black wrist-strap Garmin Forerunner 305. Although I'm a broke science teacher, I'm willing to provide a "token" reward to the person who finds/returns it. (I don't know of any honest person that wouldn't enjoy a case of their favorite beer or a nice bottle of wine!!) I'm actually more upset about the lost data, (and I also think that I broke my right foot in the process of tumbling down the hill; I go in for X-Rays tomorrow! More importantly, I know this is what every MTB rider is concerned with....... my Bike is OK!!), than I am about the unit itself, although I don't even think I can afford to replace it anytime soon!

Anyway, if anyone found it, hears about it, etc. PLEASE call me 561-573-7195 or email me jtfit@aol.com with any information that you may have! Thanks so much in advance!

Sincerely,

JT
(Jonathan Todd)

Call the ranger station at the park too.  Maybe someone turned it in after you left.

that sucks man, despite our rough "gangster" resputation, us mountain bikers do have hearts..I hope the bike didn't get too scratched..oh and you're foot is ok..that too...J/k
seriously tho, I just broke my hand, and have to go to an orthopedist tomorrow myself, so I can empathize.
good luck finding your GPS..more than likely if a SWAMPer finds it, you'll be reunited with it.. :D
When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

Garry & LTS Guy,

Thanks for even reading the post!  I'm going to try and post it in a few other areas and hopefully I'll get a better response! I already left my info at the ranger station and will call later on today. If you hear anything, please let me know!

Thanks again,

JT
