Found a tent

Anyone on this site loose a tent? I found a very large tent, completely stowed in its duffel bag. This would be about 2 miles up from Jennings Ck trail, or 1/4 mile down from N Fork Campground, off road 240, up the N Fork S
Arkansas R. If so respond with appropriate description and I'd get it to you. Otherwise ARC will be a beneficiary.

Hello,
I have been searching high and low for our lost tent, we haven't needed it for several months and now that we are looking for it it's nowhere to be found and the last time we can remember using it was in the location you posted about - off the highway up Monarch Pass on 240, turn right at the fork and up on the hilltop was the last place we camped. We lost an orange accented Half Dome REI tent, was that the one you found? Crossing my fingers if it's the one you found you didn't get the chance to donate it yet...
Thanks

Actually looking at the roads, I believe we turned off on 224 and turned right onto 219 to the top of the hill there, just west of 240, but could be the same area you are describing we just approached it from the west rather than the east.

Any correlation to the smoking thread? JK!

Looks like the old “sit this on the roof while packing the trunk” routine. I’ve lost at least two wallets, a bike cable, a bike computer, and many other pieces of gear that way. You’d think one would learn but a few years go by since the last time and you forget the consequences. Once somebody found my keys I’d set on the roof about a mile from my house. They had no idea who they belonged to but my Kings Soopers card was attached so they turned them in to Kings who scanned the card and called me to pick them up. Anyway, hope you get your tent back.
