Over the years I’ve read and come up with some ideas to label things that can get lost and I wanted to share them with you.
Camera – On your computer screen open Word and type out your name, address, phone number and team name. Make it real big and take a picture of it with your camera. Now if you lose your camera your info is on there for the finder to see. I usually have a clean SD card before I start RAGBRAI so it’s the first picture on there.
Wallet – On the back of a business card write your name, team name and your phone number to contact if lost. Put it up front so the finder can easily spot it.
Phone – If you keep your phone in a bag put a note in there with your name, team name and someone else’s phone number who’s on your team for a contact. Another thing you can do is put all that info on a simple white background picture and make it your wallpaper if your phone locks.
Camelbak, purse, etc – For anything else you could leave somewhere put your name, team name and phone number on a note and put that note in a clear plastic bag in case it all gets wet.
I see a lot of lost cameras on this forum so maybe these tips will help lost cameras find their owners!
