    We had a @Chuck the ripper sighting today. He was camped about 1/2 way along the Magruder. He looked to be in good shape still.

    Mosko BC bag found near Warren.

    We are in Bliss, ID and a couple saw our bikes and came up to us and said they found it on the trail.

    Glad the bag owner was found Great to hear people making an effort to find someone

    I lost my tool bag kit with my personal contact and identification in it when riding in Idaho years ago
    Never heard a word. All of my bike trail tools gone. My fault for having a loose strap. I missed finding it when going back to look for it by about 15 minutes as I was told someone on a side by side picked it up when going back and running in to another rider. I hope they are enjoying my great tool kit.

    Good story

    It is a good story. Lot of stuff left on the trail it seems.
    Last August I lost the Stinger tail bag out of my Mosko R-80 between Avery and Wallace. Rode all the way back to Avery and never found it. I did meet up with 3-4 riders that were behind me about an hour, they didn't see it.
    It only had my new Lone Rider tent, my small air mattress pump and a few other things.

    That ain't right. They could have at least contacted you and asked if you'd pay shipping (which of course you would have). Nonetheless, I should probably put some contact info on my stuff.

    We had a cinch strap and wrapped it around the circumference of the tire but couldn't get enough leverage to tighten the strap by hand so we used a large tree branch to create a lever. This put enough pressure around the middle of the tire to force the bead to contact the rim and allow us to air the tire. Unfortunately, there was so much pressure on the cinch that it couldn't be released and we destroyed it trying to do so with pliers. Ended up cutting it off. Not bad for a one time fix but a better method would have been with a ratchet strap.

    I leave contact info, and a $20 bill, with a note to contact me and keep the money. It has worked (twice).I've since upgraded my tie down.

    Looking to ride the IBDR in Sept, starting around 9/15 or so. North to South, South to North...I don't have a preference. Anyone need a +1 in their group?

    Yes, we stopped in both of those places and back tracked about 40 miles and looked for the bag. I am glad that my friend will get reunited with his bag. Thanks for posting and helping to find the owner.
