    A couple of months ago a fellow RM complained about finding a bike pump on the trail, I think it was on Kachess. Since then I have inadvertently decided to add to the "litter". Heres the short list:
    SST-Bike tube and glove-someone found the glove for me
    Taneum-Alien Multi-Tool
    White River-Park Chain Tool and Crank Brothers Multi-I heard something drop and stopped to look but found nothing. I apparently stuck too much stuff in the seat pack and the zipper came undone.
    Kachess-Bike Pump-not sure how I lost this one except I crashed and strained my knee coming down and after that I was only thinking of making it to the bottom. The frame holder broke but it still had a velcro strap-I think a gremlin tore this one off.

    I also have to add I have been know to lose a few water bottles.

    Anyone else with a confession? :o:

    Hmmm, over the years...

    - 1 bike pump
    - 1 CO2 inflator
    - 1 headlamp
    - 1 map
    - 1 deraileur
    - 3 chains
    - 1 tube
    - 1 cleat
    - 1 multi tool
    - 1 chain tool
    - 2 tire levers
    - 1 helmet visor
    - 1 pair of gloves
    - a couple of water bottles, tubes of goo, cliff bars, and a few other things I'm sure

    I confess I walk race courses and see what I can find. Now, if it has a name or phone # on it I will always try and return it to the owner.

    Let me know next time you plan on littering so I can follow you and pick it up. Not because I hate seeing litter on the trail (although I do) but because I'm too poor to buy my own stuff. One person's trash...

    Back in the day, when I ran a 1.85" back tire and rode a Ritchey Ultra with a snycros front fork, I used to hang my tubes from the branches of trees I flatted beneath...no excuses here...

    I'm sorry...

    How on earth do you lose a glove? Thats like losing a shoe!

    Come to think of it, you ever see one shoe on the side of the road? How the hell does that happen? :confused:

    What the hell!?!?!?!

    I just posted and all the colors changed!

    This new RideMonkey is too fancy. I'm gonna have to get a b&w monitor.

    Thanks for the heads up, I wll keep my eyes open if I am out bushwhacking at Kettle Crest. Seriously last summer some loggers set up on Cle Elum Ridge last summer and were there about two weeks. During mid-day I couldnt go under their lines so .... well you figure it out. The Sierra Club would have been shocked.

    I cried once.

    But mostly because I sat on my balls.
