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.
