    Hard Rock Cafe soft back pack thingy a few days ago, very clean. I've actually used it a few times now. It folds up and fits in the seat pack but holds quite a bit.

    On my bike camping trip I found a Kindle, the case scuffed but the glass intact, news still on the screen, and the power light comes on. However, I have since charged it and it seems frozen. I need to research if there is some reset function, or maybe try surgery.

    Nice Fiskers. I've found all kinds of stuff
    - Many black bungies
    - Several tiedown straps. One complete ratcheting but a little bent but I can fix it with...
    - A set of vice grips.
    - A few months ago I found 2 LARGE tarps. Had to ride 2 miles 1 handed to get them home.
    - I saw what appeared to be a bag of Pepridge Farm Mint Milano cookies- in good condition - but I didn't' stop.
    - 7 pin to 4 pin trailer light adaptor
    - Riding glasses - in good shape
    and more

    Thanks but I bet you were talking about the kindle. And I'll agree.

    Yes I did a quick edit... you snuck in there. Could have been talking about the cookies though!

    I found a nice looking camera bag so I picked it up. The bag had about over a pound of pot in it. I don't know anything about drugs but a friend told me he thought it was a dealer's bag and likely got tossed out the window because the dealer thought he might get pulled over by the cops. Supposedly this happens every so often and the dealers drive around the block after a few minutes to pick up their stuff.

    I must have just happened to ride past at the right time.

    I don't smoke and don't like dealing with the police so I just put the contents of the bag in the compost heap.

    I wouldn't use the bag to take your camera through airport security.

    Dang, no good treasure lately? My only find recently was one almost new Craftsman glove with an empty pack of menthol Camels.

    I haven't found anything lately but I have put a lot of it into use. I used the sport wallet and Columbia hat for skiing last weekend. I had picked up a decent looking but smashed watch last summer that I just harvested the band from to use on my sport watch. All of this stuff is in almost new condition.

    Yesterday, I was shocked by what first looked like a fetus on the shoulder just inside the rumble strip. (No pics, which is just as well). I took a second look. The small muzzle and tail said non-human. The lack of an umbilicus was the clue. The dead possum on the other shoulder was its mother. Never seen a possum before it emerged from the pouch other than in pictures. I've got to stop reading Stephen King. He makes for an unsettling imagination is such situations.

    Saw a pool ball (12, if that matters) today. Didn't stop to pick it up, but may get it if it's there next time I go that way, just to see what happens when you break a pool ball.

    I found a fleece lined pigtail hat this morning, good condition. I don't think I'll be needing it this season.

    I found my Dad's cell phone this am. Was at the end of his driveway, must have dropped it when he got the paper.

    yesterday I rode past a pretty long 3/4" drive socket extension that looked pretty beat up. Not exactly a treasure like a lot of the tools described in the thread.

    I know this is an old post but I've been riding past the same black bungie cord for two weeks now. It's right at a light so I keep thinking I'll catch it on a red, but it's always green! lol

    I've also found the usual small ammounts of cash. Passed a $1 bill in a driving rain storm last fall. No way was I stoping in that deluge for a buck. Besides, there was a guy pushing his motorcycle a block back from that dollar so I bet he needed the good fortune more than I did.

    Got a darn near new pair of leather gloves not two blocks from that dollar on a different day. A helmet light while walking the dog.

    Love finding things. I know one day I will own a metal detector for beach combing in my old age.
