I keep a copy of my passport in my shorts back pocket. Have had the same one for a few years now. I covered it in clear packing tape, slipped it in and forgot about it––got the shorts wet a few times, in lakes, in the Dow pool and the hot tub, not to mention the washing machine and the darn thing is fine.Anyway, my pack is still full, sitting here, staring at me like an eager dog, ready to go out again, I should unpack . . .

Subject: [John Muir Trail] Lost camera on JMT north of Selden Pass August 22, 2012
Lost on Aug 22nd, a small Kodak Playfull camera (says waterproof to 3 meters)with my pictures from Yosemite High Sierra camp and northern part of John Muir Trail trips. Lost on or near JMT trail between Mono Creek (Lake Thomas Edison) and Marie Lake (lunch stop off-trail by Bear Creek) north of Selden Pass. Would love my pictures, probably fewer than 100; wouldn't mind the camera either. Thanks, Steve
