    Thought I'd give this a bump. Contents of bag is extensive collection of must have items that someone is really bound to miss. Would like to find the rightful owner

    Because none of us would ever have this happen. I think the lesson here is, never be the last guy on a group ride, unless you carry everything in a backpack, since you'll definitely know when that falls off :rofl

    He noticed and posted in the Palouse thread in case someone in the area came across it:

    He's a nice guy with a lot of MT/ID knowledge if you ever need it. I'm glad he is getting it back.

    Tip: Put your name and address on the outside (tire) side of the pannier, makes it a lot easier for the finder to contact the loser. That's how I got my lost pannier backĀ….thank, Del.

    Looks like different gear and loss location for Wansfel:
    I once had a borrowed very expensive sleeping bag work its way out of my gear , sucks to get to buy a very good sleeping bag that way and had to buy another one in Pincher Creek, Alberta too.
