Found a GoPro on Bailey below Tampax

Nice GoPro that was mounted on a stand on the stern of the kayak. Has video (32gb kingston card) so let me know the color of your boat, helmet and the initials on the GoPro; and you got your GoPro back.

Couldn't save the stand, sorry couldn't shove it in boat, but its on the rock next to (I think) Trashcan.

This seems like a good place to put this suggestion for anyone who uses their camera/minicam for active sports:

Put a file called 'reward.txt' in the root directory of all your SD cards.
If anyone finds a camera (especially a GoPro without an LCD), they're going to put it in their computer to try to ID the owner.

List your name, phone number, email address, etc. so your camera can find its way home.

Then follow up with giving the finder a :beer: reward!

I found a go pro hd in Zion on the approach to deep creek. I've tried posting all over and still never found the owner. The trick above would have gotten the one I found back to its owner.

good advice!

I have done several l things to increase my chances of not loosing and recovering my GoPro when I eventualy loose it.

-First thing I did was paint the inside of my housing with bright safety orange colored paint. I took care taping off the screen and the gasket area.

-When I removed the lens for painting, I replaced the plastic lens ring with a metal ring that has a backup lanyard mount in it. (GoPro Aluminum Lanyard Ring Mount Lens Flat Curved Wing Suit Skydive Scuba Video | eBay)

-I installed a floaty backdoor.

-Then I wrote my name, phone number, and my city on the backdoor, inside the housing, on the camera, and a text file on the SD Card.

-I also use a floaty handle sometimes. (GoPro Poles, Mounts, Grips & Accessories - GoPole)

We're not talking about recovering stolen GoPro's.
We're talking about returning a lost GoPro to its rightful owner.

A thief will one day have to face his own karma, and even your engraved name isn't going to keep a thief from stealing a pocketable item.

Putting your contact info on your card will help keep karma in balance if a normal honest river user finds your toy.

As many times as other folks have returned my, or my buddy's, stick and/or hand paddle(s) I'm very happy to return the favor on someone else's gear.

River booty should end at drinking a yard sale beer.
