    Down about $600 dollars - Lost my backpack in the river along with my new GoPro!

    Whelp yesterday was a horrible day.

    I went sniping on lower Clear Creek with the family and friends.
    While no one was looking my 3 year old tossed my backpack into the creek and the water took it.

    This was just above the Gorge where the Salmon Viewing area is, down from the yellow BLM gate.

    I always bring everything down with me and keep it away from the water.
    I had my only set of truck and house keys in it, my GoPro, My wallet and ALL cash that I had and misc tools.
    I had to break out the ignition to be able to drive home.


    Here are my losses for the day, and everything that was in my wallet was all the money that I have - I am in between work and this is hitting me hard.


    $300: Brand new GoPro Hero 3+ Silver (I just replaced this one too!)
    $80: Jansport hiking camelback backpack
    $15: Wallet (ALL of my cards, every last important card that I have)
    $30: New ID
    $45+: cash in my wallet
    $50: Re-Key my trucks doors
    $30: New Ignition cylinder
    $50: Misc tools, weights, sunblock, DEET spray, allergy medicine and gloves.



    I am thinking about running a raffle to try to make up for my losses today.

    (content removed)

    It really sucks to be as broke as I am right now but I am between work and cant bounce back from this easily.

    Sorry Neo but it violates rules to use TreasureNet to run auction, you can sell if your a charter member. If you want to join as Charter Member and sell your bottles I'm sure they will sell, I will pay your CM fee in exchange for 1 bottle...

    Per TN rules..

    You may not... sell, raffle, or auction items on behalf of any person or organization."

    Send me an address and I will get one out to you.
    I greatly appreciate it, it would be a huge help to me.

    As for the raffle I was going to do it through my facebook so that it would be easier to keep track of names.
    Am I allowed to link that here?

    I did go down to try to find it but it was already getting dark by the time I noticed it was gone and my middle daughter said that my youngest chucked it in.

    My babysitter is on her way and I am going to go back out and drift down the creek looking for it.

    I really do hope that someone finds it and returns it. Even if they keep the cash I would rather have my backpack, wallet and gopro.
    I have the serial to the GoPro so when I get back I am going to report it missing.

    Thanks again for your support everyone, its good to have friends that care.

    Thanks TH, I greatly appreciate it!

    Reed, I know. I cant even really get mad at them though, I have more of the sick pit in my stomach feeling that being angry right now.

    Ok, I am heading out now. If you guys don't hear from me in the next day send out the search parties to lower clear creek! lol
    lol, luckily the water is a little low so not quite as crazy as usual.

    I wish you luck and am sorry to hear about your misfortune.. I was thinking, it says you had weights in the pack and id be willing to bet that you pack is sitting on the bottom of the river somewhere not far from where it went in. Might have to do some swimming in a bunch of places but you just might find it, dont give up yet!

    I know, I mean your 3 year old
    All you can do is laugh and not leave anything close to him for another year I've been there. All kids love throwing your gear in the river at that age just to see your response

    Whelp I did not find the backpack today.
    I started above the gorge and ended close to the Honey Bee trail head, a few miles of creek.
    I am quite tired and it took me a while to warm up again. x_x

    While I was hanging my Lost signs up at the bathrooms I asked a few people if they had heard anything about it.
    Apparently I had just missed (By about 20 or 30 minutes) a couple people that were fighting over a Burnt Orange backpack and who got to keep it.
    The police showed up to settle matters and of course they aren't going to say they found it so they went off on their marry way with possibly my backpack.

    This was at the Gold Dredge trail head (further down than I swam.)


    I also forgot to include in my list a very nice 10.5" fixed blade Buck knife, it was a gift from a friend.


    Whelp, I am going to eat dinner and go to bed.

    Thanks again for your support everyone, G'Night.
