Contact the site campground manager (I'm assuming campground). See if they have it in lost and found. Maybe, maaayyybeee, some kind soul did the honest thing or the manager found it and put it in L&F?
The wife and I were out of town recently. The grandparents were watching the kids for us. My eldest lost his 6 month old iPhone 12 soon after we left.
I told him to retrace his steps and at least determine where he lost it. Or where he was when he first noticed it missing.
We got back a week later. I interrogated (his feelings) him for a week to establish his timeline and when he noticed it missing. He felt it was gone because wherever he lost it somebody would have picked it up and kept it or sold it.
Turns out he dropped it getting out of the car at a restaurant. Somebody picked it up and turned it in and the restaurant put it in their safe. Two weeks after having lost it, we got it back in perfect working order.
This was a direct result of the fact that things don’t just disappear, and my broken brain knowing that and not being able to let things go.
And luck.

I agree. I have lost too many things at work that I still look for in the slim chance I can find them.

When I was 16, I bought my own cellphone. One day, I drove my dirt bike 20km to a restaurant. On the way home, it fell. I traveled the 20km 4 times looking for it. For whatever reason, I decided to walk the ditch. Lo and behold, I found it. To this day I think it remarkable that I just so happened to stop at the correct spot in a 20km journey to find it, having no idea where or when it fell on my ride.

Unfortunately, this has left me with the belief that I can, and will, find everything that I lose and a stubborn determination to prove this mentality correct, but rarely does it happen.

Dammit, Nathan, stop making knives which are better than each other at something or other!!!

Sheesh.

🤣

Can not, will not and shall not! Why, here's why:

Nathan owns the best head of hair than the majority of you bald (fully, semi or just trendy) fudgers! Heck, not even human hair we're talking demigod centaur type hair. The essence of what's in his shampoo comes from a compound with its essential ingredient comes from an element so secret yet not on the Periodic Table (I think that NinJo being a biochemist by training makes it for Nathan). For this reason, CPKs must be made, tweaked and bettered than better before 'cause that costs $.

I wonder in which big gap in the periodic table this secret element is located?!
