Found: Pricey electronics accessory on Torrey’s

Post by bluegrassclimber » Wed Sep 02, 2020 11:18 am

Came across it just below the saddle on Torrey’s trail this morning. There were maybe half a dozen others who were up there at the same time as me this AM, so it could have been lost yesterday or Sunday too.

If you are looking for it, message me with details and I’ll be glad to help get it back to you.

You found my 60" plasma TV! Awesome! I can't believe it fell off my pack...

Given that plasma TVs are obsolete technology nowadays, that was probably a good thing :lol:

It’s busted all to hell, but I think it’ll still have a decent picture. Sending you a PM with shipping costs and the urgent care costs for my back after lugging that thing back to the TH. 😂

What's with the mystery; this post and that other one where dude found a "personal item" (shrooms) at Brainard Lake?

Just say what is, no need to be coy, if the owner is on here they can PM you and the FBI/CIA/NSA will be none the wiser...

Disagree. It’s not being coy. Some items are easy to “say what it is” and still have enough details withheld for the owner to confirm it is in fact their item. For example, “found hiking boots” is specific, yet still leaves out make, size, color, etc. I didn’t see an easy way to do that with what I found.

Just trying to do the right thing and help someone out. Thanks for the perspective on proper lost and found etiquette, I don’t share it.

Spot or inreach?

I kinda like these guessing games. I never would have guessed shrooms for the other one.

It is not a matter of being coy. It is to make sure the lost item gets returned to the proper owner instead of to some opportunistic jerk trying to score some free gear.

Uh huh, I get that. It's just that pricey electronic equipment can usually be described a little more explicitly without giving away specific details.

Satellite messenger
PLB
GPS watch
Cell phone
Laptop
Tablet
Plasma TV
etc...

Sometimes, a doofus may not even know they lost something and seeing a slightly more specific post may inspire them to look. YMMV.

A sex toy could be both a personal item and an expensive electronic accessory.
