    What's the best thing you've found/dragged home from a ride?

    Stuff you might use, like money, clothing, etc? Or do you never stop at all?

    Like the full pair of Fox Gloves that I use as cold weather gloves; my husband found them cycling back from work.

    He just recently found half a box of staples for his Senco staple ***--he'll use them around here for sure. He's brought home pairs of leather gloves and tools also.

    I have found and dragged home jackets, many towels(great for the rag box) and once, when I was very thirsty, a sealed bottle of water--perfect timing!

    found nothing yet but had to give one homeless some food.
    oh yeah, and had to scare a bunch of kids away, around 20 of them at the age of around 1o-11, from the other side of the wire fence, were throwing stones at an old homeles man...

    I found the air conditioner I am currently cooling my cats apartment with (unfortunately the cats staged a bloodless coup in which they took the apartment from me; they are currently keeping me around to pay rent so they can stay cool during the warm summer months and are threatening me with homelessness once cool weather hits. Ungrateful bastards.).

    I've also found: a VCR, couch, bookshelf, futon (my bed), computer table, box fan, and a lot of other neat stuff. That's what happens when you ride down the alleyways!

    Wow... you hauled all that back on your bike? I'm impressed. Are you one of the guys on this page?

    Naw, I'm not that hardcore. When I found the couch it was only five or six blocks away so it only took a little effort to move it. That's an awesome site though! Maybe I should work on moving like that next time I move!

    A 6-inch Craftsman adjustable wrench. Apparently it had been on the road for a while, with nicks and rust everywhere. Took it to Sears and they replaced it for free! It now lives comfortably in a warm tool box.

    all kinds of stuff...I found a bag of kittens, some low life pond scum sucking dill weed dumped at a trail head, if the world ever needs an enama I hope they stick it to them. There were five kittens about 4 weeks old, I tried but only three of them made it, they were very weak and sick. Why would anyone do this? At least they could have let them out of the bag.

    Two guns, one was a shot *** that someone had leaned agenst a tree in a state forest, from the looks of it it had been there for years as it was covered with rust. I found it when I stepped off a trail to ansuer the call of nature. The secound *** was a glock 9mm that I found on the side of the road, most likley tossed out a car window from the looks of it. One round in the chamber and five more in the clip. I turned both guns into the state police.

    Other stuff I've found, some I took home, some I left there. Tools of all sorts, money, purse (returned to owner, reward! Ka-ching!), wallet (returned to owner, acused of stealing it, see if I do that again!) A huge box of x rated tapes and some really freaky Poliroids with names and phone numbers on the back, 8 cell Maglight, Swiss army knife, hand cuffs. Lots of stuff but the funniest would have to be a plastic Jesus, a gross of them in a box.

    found an old gas powerd rotory mower.. having carb problems but when it does run it runs really nice. was a little more then my bike trailer wanted to haul but it got the job done. a huge bag of cloths some folks where throwing away sorted them out and what we couldnt use( which wasnt much as they were for some little lady) sent to the free store. little trike for my boy and a few bikes most ended up cut up for parts for my next beast. going to have to start riding around the allys miss working for the trash company found all sorts of neat stuff.... some folks are just plain wastefull but..... if they were not i wouldnt have gotten much of the stuff i did get.

    I once found a 3/8" X 7/16" Snap-On wrench, and two different girlfriends. I still have the wrench.

    Yesterday I found a small bag full of tools, most were cheep but there was a small Snap-on ratchet, I kept the ratchet and left the rest. It's the second Snap-on ratchet I have found and the third in my tool box.

    Good man, me and my mum have taken in loads of pets, we'd rather go to the pound for a pet than buy a pedegree, as they live longer, and have less health problems. why you'd want a pedegree i have no idea, some of the breeders nowadays are terrible. A Boxer ***** was brought in, you could literally see EVERY rib, and EVERY vertibrae, i was furious and wanted to report the woman, but the RSPCA is useless, plus if the people found out where i saw it, im sure id lose my job. (i work at vets, saying i love animals, and money )

    Jeese, out of the three cats, and four dogs, most all of them are rescues. Best animals ever, and the look on their face when you bring them in, bath them and give them a good feed, is priceless.

    ya know ive always wonderd why if you are going to spend so much on a pet one would buy one that looked like that. one of the pet shops weve gone to has pups that sometimes look like walking skeletons. with prices from upper 200s to upper 500s for those prices id would want something that at least looked healthy, seeing as im a cheep skate, the pound has plenty of fine dogs for when we finally get out of this darn trailer court
