    Did anyone find a wedding band at or Near Camp Tamarancho?!

    It's a long shot, but I just now realize that I lost my wedding band (platinum, 4mm, with engravement of 5/29/2004 inside).

    I am not sure where I lost it, but likely culprit was from wet ride at Tamarancho yesterday. It could be while taking gloves off at main trailhead for pix, or in Fairfax Cyclery parking lot afterwards.

    If by the tiniest of chance any of you happened to find it, please let me know. Much appreciation, reward, and beer.

    Thanks!

    I wish you the best of luck getting it back. I lost mine once (in my wife's car it turned out). After that experience I would suggest you just don't go home.

    Did you look in the glove?
    Just asking.
    Good Luck.
    I lost my first one in Hawaii on my honeymoon, fell off surfing Hanalei Bay.
    Wifey not happy.
    Second ones been on my key chain ever since. 31 years.
    And since you all asked, I don't wear it because of the work I do, it would tear the ring, and my finger off.
    I can't tell you what I do though.
    I'd have to kill you.
    Yes, Monday and Tuesday are now no longer weekdays. Trust me. LP.

    Thats what you get for riding in the rain. OOOOOOOHHHHHH I kid, I kid! I'll be digging up there today. If I see a wedding band I will let you know.

    I sincerely hope you find it and I also hope you didn't mind my distasteful joke about riding in the rain

    Thanks, all. No offense taken at the jest.

    A friend and I actually decided to ride Sunday rather than Sat because the forecast called for rain on Sat but not Sun. By the time I arrived at Fairfax Cyclery, I realized we were wrong. It wasn't bad at all at the beginning, but got a bit muddy at the end of one lap, so we stopped. That was my second, and also unplanned, rain ride in 15+ yrs of riding.

    The wife is cool about it for now.

    My personal belief is that wedding bands are material expressions of what's really at the core, not the core in itself. I wonder why not more people agree. That said, I haven't lost my band (yet). Hope yours happens to turn up one of these days!

    I hear you regarding last Sat vs. Sun. Fearing what resulted, I rode both days. :-P

    I'm on my second band (in 28 years). The first one was gold and I had it repaired three different times after breaking it opening beer bottles. It got so bad that it couldn't be repaired anymore, so I now have a Tungston ring and there's no way a bottle top is going to break it. It's nice to have an understanding wife. Although, she wasn't all that understanding until she needed a bottle opened.

    Knock wood that I haven't lost it/them.

    I do agree with you that the band/ring/diamond is a symbol of the marriage. It can be a piece of string wrapped in a figure 8 around fingers. It would mean the same thing. Too many are wrapped up in the size of the diamond and such.

    Great Suggestion! Lost mine in the glove once, scary! Take it off before every ride now. Keep it on the 12v power/lighter plug on the dash.
