Lost - Red Paco Pad Ruby Horsethief

I know it's a long shot. My buddy lost his red paco pad on Ruby Horsethief this weekend on Saturday. We went on a hike up to the ampitheater on Mee Corner and a strong wind squall rolled in. When we returned, his paco was gone, so it must've blown into the river. It's definitely the last time he'll leave a paco unsecured and without his name and phone # on it. Thanks!

Bummer! I rarely use a tent and I was taught to never lay out my sleep kit to make sure I am the first 'critter' to get in. FWIW, I also always clip my paco pad to my dry bag to alleviate this situation.

I hope he gets it back!

I got off Ruby on Sunday... the ranger asked if we were missing a paco pad. Guessing this is the one. Maybe call and see it if they have it at Westwater?

Wow thank you! We took off Monday but the ranger wasn't there. I just told my buddy to call the ranger. Thank you thank you!

The rangers he spoke with said that he had lost a paco on a Grand Canyon trip that someone found and returned to him, so he is paying it forward and driving the paco to GJ.

Thanks Aaron! My buddy just confirmed that the paco has been dropped off at my in-laws' house in GJ. Gotta love the rafting community. It was nice meeting you at Mee Corner last weekend!
