    Camera lost on dry Fork trail - Durango

    One of my mates lost his camera on the Dry Fork trail near Durango on tuesday 21st of august. Another mate (not knowing about the loss) talked to two local bikers on the same trail who had just found a camera.
    One of these (very nice & friendly) local bikers rode a carbon S-works fully and the other guy was on a Surly Karate Monkey, with a 1x10 setup. This guy owns another Surly and was thinking of getting a Pugsley or a Moonlander.

    If someone recognizes himself or these guys, please pm me. It's not about the camera, which they can keep because we're on our way to Moab now. But if they'd be so friendly as to upload the pictures on it to some site for downloading... ?

    It's all pictures of the Colorado trail, which we have just finished - a memory hard to replace...

    If in doubt, I can provide the brand and model of the camera and/or put you in contact with the owner. But as mentioned, my mate doesn't need it back but he's heartbroken with loosing his pictures of the last 10 days on the CT.
    As a final test about which camera it is, there should be quite a lot of pictures of a (in America) very rare Sandman fatbike.

    Thanks in advance and happy trails !

    I'd suggest contacting Durango Cyclery and Mountain Bike Specialist, they carry those bikes, the Surly 1X10 rider should be easy to identify ... I would think.

    It may be your lucky day. I found one this AM on Dry Fork. Haven't looked at the pics yet, it's in a bag of rice drying out from yesterday's rain. PM me with the model.

    The camera is caked in mud
    But the trail was in pretty good shape, a little slick in spots and a couple of puddles. Nothing to pack up the tires though. A couple of bikes had ridden it yesterday and left deeper tracks, must have been wetter then.

    Caminoloco, you are indeed in luck. The camera is still wet and packed with mud, but I pulled the SD card out and see some pics of a Sandman. I'll upload those later today and send you the link. Tom

    Many, many thanks Tom ! I couldn't reply sooner because we were travelling back to Europe the last few days.

    My friend JP is very, very happy to get his pictures back, thanks again in his name for uploading them !

    This forum and its members are just great
