Proper Rewards For Lost and Found Gear?
Let's just play pretend for a moment and imagine that while styling a most unbelivable kick-flip-wave-wheel-180-rail-grab over some sick waterfall, tragedy strikes, the rocks move, the water rises 600 CFS (while you're in mid-air) and your paddle is ripped from your hands by some evil river creature.
A few days later, after god has stopped tap-dancing on the river bed, some other boater locates your lost gear. The intrepid and friendly boater kindly locates your chundred ass and returns your gear. What sort of reward is appropriate?
