Lost my Nalgene!!!

Postby RussellT » Sun Apr 22, 2007 4:27 pm

That I slipped and lost it out of my backpack on the way back down to the Crags trailhead on Pikes Peak. It FLEW like a blue rocket down the mountain. If you find it, it's yours. For as spectacular as it's take-off was, I don't even want it anymore. It's launched itself into someone else's hands. :shock:

you should have chased it! the hour detour would have been worth the 8 bucks.

Chasing that thing would be like riding a tricycle in pursuit of a Ferrari. No way. It was worth $8 to me just to watch that thing fly down the mountain pushing the sound barrier!

Yeah, that thing looked like a bullet goin down the mountain. I'm sure it will be found somewhere in South America.
