One more time, folks: put your name and phone number on yer $#!+, or at least have your mommy or a sober friend do it for you. My signature and contact info are engraved and/or inked in several concealed places in my CARS and VANS, fercrapssake, let alone every smaller piece of crap I take to the beach. I can understand leaving a fin, or a even a harness, but a boom? A sail bag (How does one forget a sail bag?) A BOARD?

I was once asked why my gear is so anally organized in my WS vehicle. Simple: before I set up a place for everything and put everything in its place, I got tired of leaving a trail of smaller crap from one lake to another. At least now when I forget something, the finder can call me. There's crap with my name on it scattered over several countries in at least two continents. I've gotten back crap I had sold years ago, and got to sell it again.

The only down side? People occasionally pick up my rigging hand cleat from the lawn and give it to me. I just thank them, toss it back on the ground where they found it, and say, "Oh, it lives there." I haven't forgotten it yet in the past 20 years at that spot.

How COULD I, when people keep chasing me with it? Wink
