Fellow hikers,
I lost my camera on the AT on September 9, 2008 in the Bigelows. I lost it between Avery Peak and Little Bigelow Mountain. I am not concerned so much about the camera as I am about the SD card in it. There are several hundred pictures from my 2008 AT Thru-hike that cannot be replaced. If you found it, please contact me at 573-528-7162 or e-mail me at addicted2scuba@gmail.com I will pay for any costs incurred for mailing the card back to me and you can keep the camera and case. Thank You, Bilge Rat

I hope it returns to you.

I have posted this before. Write your name and contact information on a piece of paper. Take a picture of this paper and save it on your memory cards. If the camera is found they will prob look thru the pics.

Better than nothing.

I didn't find it but here's a suggestion. Make an "If you find me" card with some basic info: Name, E-mail, Phone, Address. Whatever you are comfortable with. Photograph it, store in your memory card and protect it from erasure. Should a good soul find it they can contact you. The double edge to the sword is should a true villain find it---- like I say only as much info as you are comfortable with.

Darn, I'm sorry I didn't read your post before I duplicated the suggestion.:o

I have noticed that there seems to be a LOT of lost cameras on the AT. I recall this coming up like a dozen times (well maybe not that many) in the last couple years. Someone in Karl's group just lost one too.

What gives?

I can't answer that... but as of last year, I've started carrying my camera in a small pouch attached to one of my pack's shoulder straps. The camera only comes out to take a photo, and goes right back into its pouch when that's done. My camera's a pretty high-priority item. I'm not saying I couldn't misplace it, but it hasn't happened yet. Knock wood!

There is a website where people post pictures from cameras that have been found. Here is the URL

If they find it some of your pics could be found here and you may get it back.
