    Lost Oakley Sunglasses in La Costa Preserve

    Probably not much of a chance but thought I'd ask anyway... My special edition Oakley sunglasses must have flew off my pack today around 5:30 on NASCAR trail. I'm happy to give a reward as they have some special meaning to me (which makes me feel like an even bigger idiot). They are desert tan with a subdued green American flag "O".

    Not to add injury to insult...bc we don't do that at all around here...

    I thought expensive things were supposed to go safely and securely on the (inside) of something...like a camel-back, or zippered-shirt pocket, or fanny pack, or on-board overhead luggage compartment, or glove-box!

    Btw, I don't wear glasses, even when I ride. I know, I know, I don't look kool like everybody else...but, mtbing is not a style contest...that stuffs for roadies!!!

    Btw2, I hope you find them or some honest person rogers up.

    Were they Gascans? If so, the desert tan with subdued American flag edition you speak of is available for purchase through usstandardissue.com

    It is pain to have to re-buy but at least you could get them back in a way.

    Yeah they were, and that's how I got them. It's just that this particular pair saw two rotations through Iraq and one through Afghanistan.

    I had them clipped over my camel back chest strap for the climb and forgot about them before the descent. I guess I forgot cause it was actually raining (lightly) and I didn't need them. Oh well, such is life....

    I understand. Hopefully they turn up. I have had mine for 4 years and have managed not to lose them after a few government funded sea going adventures myself.

    Thanks! It's much appreciated. I didn't get to go back up because I didn't notice until I pulled the bike into the garage... Unfortunately I can't go today either.

    Found your glasses!

    I left them at the crossing of Mule Deer and Nascar, they should be hanging on the sign there.

    Wow, awesome! This is why I love mountain bikers! Now if anybody reads this again. Could anybody grab them and PM me. I'm afraid I'm gone on a military exercise until Aug 1st. I would be in your debt!

    Great that you found them but you should have P.M.'d him where they were. Just In case some scum bag sees this and try's to beat him to the location.
