She never even acknowledged that she got it. I talked to someone else from their trip and he said they did. I didn't expect much but at least to be covered for the postage and a thank you note or something. Found out she was a super feminist from one of those dirty hippie Oregon colleges. So I turned misogynist for a year to get even.
Hahaha, fucking feminists... she probably swam after her karma caught up to her, and I bet it was a man that pulled her out of the drink... irony at it's best.
On another note, we found a canoe this weekend on the Yampa between Hayden and Craig, tied up to a tree and stuck in the bushes. Our buddy pulled over and freed the canoe, and we investigated the contents. In a trash bag inside the duffel bag tied inside the canoe, was a nice thick Ralph Lauren sweater with a pair of slacks, two Nalgenes, two packs of American Spirits, a pocket knife, and a couple of other odds and ends.
There was a name and number on one of the Nalgenes so, while we were enjoying the lazy float down the river, we gave it a call, and a woman answered. "He don't live here no more."
We assumed this could only mean that after some epic domestic violence likely involving a few too many PBRs (reference South Park: I'm white trash and I'm in trouble), the guy stole the canoe from his lady friend to go on some wild west type adventure and got a little in over his head, and thus abandoned the canoe.
Later we found out from the group in front of us that the guy had called the state park and was gonna go back for the canoe... we were almost shamed for rescuing it. Either way, my buddy paddled it to the take out and we left it there, then I called the state parks and told em the dude can go grab it. From what we understand the canoe had been stuck there for at least two weeks...
Aaaand, on another note... this all reminds me that I owe some of the guides in town some beer, from like, three years ago.
