An instrument designed to make a sound anyone can hear from miles away was lost in a remote area shakily being shared by a large number of people ?

Natures Flyswatter.

Better than a rock falling from the canyon and onto your boat! Andy H once told me a story of that happening in westwater. Consider your loss a gain.

And the rock fell shortly after my friend in the boat ahead of me started playing his didgeridoo! One of the rocks about the size of a washing machine landed in the river about 50 feet ahead of his bow. Wow, that was a close one!

Westwter must not like didgeridoos. A friend of a friend I ran it with a couple times could mimic a,didgeridoo vocally to near perfection..,He was doing it at Little Hole camp (hike up from river) and the next day swam from Funnel or Big Hummer all the way to the eddy above Skull where he got a foot entrapment.He took off way in front of myself and another friend ,in a rental ducky and got spanked then had a shit show /yard sale ,trying admirably to hang with the boat for quite a ways then finally swimming hard for the aforementioned eddy.We tried to chase him down and help but he was so far ahead and we were trying not to swim ourselves.Could get to him easily to help with foot entrapment but he wouldn't wrench his foot out.We were the last group of the day 11 or13 k,but some group out of Crested Butte had stopped to camp and one of their Cats was not tied off well enough and took off on them,so they had to chase it down and came upon our sorry situation.They help him get out,by the exact method we told him long before,and gave him a ride out since his boat was long gone.They recovered most of his gear and boat in various eddies before the takeout.
He was lucky it was apx95 % out ,he was in the water quite awhile.

So...... I will give it to you straight. A friend of mine was on that trip. Half way thru day one the group made the decision that they had enough of your noise maker. He said they tried to talk to you about it but you insisted people liked it.
They threw it in the river ...... The world is a better place. Get a haircut, take a bath, and buy a guitar.
