Theft at Boat Ramp in Salida
Salida has joined the rest of the world as an unsafe place to leave things laying around. For years many boats, all sorts of gear and bicycles of all kinds have been left unattended and were safe as if under lock and key surrounded by the swiss guard.
On August 2nd 2007 I left a life vest, and a one piece Mountain Surf drytop/sprayskirt on my truck to dry while friends and I went to dinner an to throw back a few cold ones. After returning to the truck two hours later the life vest and drytop/sprayskirt were gone. I left notices with CKS and checked out the gear swap to see if anyone was trying to sell this stuff. I refuse to believe a fellow kayaker would steal gear but at this point I am not sure. After checking with CKS they said others have had gear stolen from the boat ramp. I write all this because for years I have dried gear on the outside of my truck as have many of you. There is at least one thief out there, so beware of your stuff.
