Lost throwbag in Vallecito - Warning re: waist throwbags
I lost my thowbag near Double Undercut or Paddle Bitch in Vallecito on Sunday. I don't think it should be a problem since the rope was still entirely inside the throwbag with the cord cinched. This is to let everyone be aware of the unlikely but possible hazzard and to take my punishment by suffering public rebuke for being a tool and losing a rope in the river, but also to make wearers of waist-worn throwbags aware of a problem:
I wear my throwbag on my stomach with the buckle toward the back. As I was entering the drop I leaned forward and felt a tug from the throwbag strap around my waist. I believe what happened was the end of the waist strap was stuck under my spray skirt (it's happened before). When I leaned forward, it undid the buckle and the river snatched the unbuckled throwbag off my waist. On future waist throwbags, I am going to cut off the excess strap so that there is only a few inches extending past the end of the buckle and not enough to get caught under my sprayskirt.
