    My visit to asheville, or, Sliding Rock stole my wedding ring!

    Hello everyone, my name is kevin, and I'm from the DC metro area. This past weekend my wife and i made a trip down to visit one of our favorite places, asheville. The trip was great, and i was able to bring my bike and ride at bent creek. We also made a visit to sliding rock, where i LOST MY WEDDING RING! I fear it is gone for good, but i thought maybe someone here might be interested in diving.... or know someone? A reward for finding it is certainly something i would offer, and please PM me if you are a wonderful person who wants to help a stranger (fellow mountain biker!), and have an idea, know someone or any other helpful info. the chances i get this ring back are slim to none at best, but i thought if there was one community i could reach out to for help, my fellow riders of the dirt would be it! thanks in advance!

    -kevin

    Does Gollum live in the area? He is pretty good at finding things like that. Too bad about your ring. That is definitely a needle in a pretty big haystack.
    Friends don let friends ride road bikes.

    Well, if you go to sliding rock, at the base of the rock, there is a pool, the pool you fall into when you slide down the rock... its in there! oh for a wet-suit, an air hose, some lights and a pair of goggles!
    any takers???

    With current low water levels - you never know if someone might hone in on it. Contact the Pisgah Ranger Station and some local outfitters. I've heard many "fishing stories" over the years. I found a small gold colored earring between some pebbles while sitting on a rock and watching the water. Was it gold or silver? Something that would shine?

    Good Luck!
    I am a fool for those special connections

    I lost mine there also a couple of years ago. Went to walmart and bought some goggles. I spent about 30 minutes early in the morning before the croud arrived diving around in the pool until I almost got hypothermia. Never found the ring. But I found car keys, glasses, shoes, earrings, etc. Theres also some decent trout in that pool believe it or not. The ranger said there is a guy that scubas in there a couple times of year looking for treasures. He took my name and number but I have never heard anything back.
