cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
Riding Sunday I found a Droid phone along the side of the road. Being a sunny day and with out my glasses I could not tell if it was broken or even turned on. Once home I found it still worked and the screen showed missed calls from "Mom". I texted "Mom" using the phone the phone that I found it and provided my personal cell # for her response. I got a call within 30 minutes and the phone was once again reunited with the owner. It seems the owner was at a party and when helping her mother get into the car must have put the cell phone onto the car's roof.

That must be the way it got there.
I rode in a little snowstorm a couple days ago and found someone's wallet in the middle of the road; I dropped it off at the Public Safety building front desk.
Some random guy found a fat overstuffed wallet on the road. I only know about it because he used the address on the DL inside it to drive to my house and return it to my wife.
Ride more. Fret less.
a 42" bolt cutter, and it was HEAVY.

There will always be schmutz.
The one item I have seen gives me pause when I occasionally pass it: 2x4 sheet of corrugated tin. Along a stretch of I-5 and on the other side of the guardrail is decent sized piece. I don't know how it came to be there and I don't want to be around if another sheet comes flying by again...
I think in another 'road debris' thread I posted seeing a shoe, then a bra, then some panties and then a condom wrapper. I never saw the liquor bottle though...
And tell my mama I'm a hundred years late
I'm over the rails and out of the race...
50 bucks and all sorts of smaller bills/change, a diamond engagement ring (I actually found the husband of the owner..he was relieved!), screwdrivers, a leather jacket (fiancée wears it still)... hmm...
Not sure it counts, but my cats were roadside finds too.
Just one of those dirty pinko commies some people worry about.
I don't stop for anything less than a quarter. Here in Canada, coins are worth stopping for. We no longer have $1 and $2 bills, we have $1 and $2 coins, which are more likely to be dropped than bills, and that don't get blown away by the wind. Tools are great too; the best tool finds were a needle-nose vice grip and a 10mm spanner with a ratcheting end, which I use to this day for brake and fender adjustments.
I found a drivers license and mailed it to the address on it with a note saying I found it out riding hwy 35 outside of Prescott, WI. The owner sent back a thank you note along with some gift certificates for one of the bars in Prescott. I haven't used them yet...
Found a lost baby goose. It was over 4th of July weekend and there was a ton of people tubing down the river and hanging out on a sand bar where the geese normally were. All the geese were gone and this little guy was wandering across the path. Dropped it off up river. I hope they made it!
