Default BIG THANKS to p-eyetexas!!!! (reunited with my gopro)

lost my gopro on the mountain today and posted a thread here on a whim just hoping it might help...and it absolutely did!

this guy was just up visiting from Austin, TX with his family and found my camera - not sure how he found this forum but im extremely greatful that he did!
my faith in humanity has been restored

also big thanks to this forum - it would have been lost forever if i didnt post here.

wow that is awesome!!!!

2 weeks back at our local hill I found a Blackberry and put it in my pocket to take to the office during grooming. About an hour later I feel vibrations in my pocket and I don't have my phone, it was his. I answer it and it's the owner. I find him at the bottom of the lift a few minutes later, I ask him some silly questions. Why you looking at me? What are you missing? Is it red?? wasn't haahha

He got his phone back, hoping Karma will be on my side if I need help some day...

I know that feel bro...mine came off my helmet at Waterville last year and a kid chased me down the trail with it. I am eternally grateful.

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar....well maybe not a scholar because you didn't take the time to tether it, but it happens to the best of us.

i seriously thought about tethering it this morning but opted against it so i could get first chair! (big mistake right)
anyway, i found a nice way to tether it this afternoon....ill probably even go as far as tethering while its on my helmet...not losing it again
