I was out over the weekend and pulled up to cross a road and I thought I heard my cell phone beeping, so I opened up my zippered jacket pocket and pulled my wallet and cell phone out, put the wallet back in (I thought) and checked the message and returned it to the pocket.

About 30 minutes later I was home and discovered that my wallet was not in my zippered pocket, I must have dropped it inside my coat and it fell out on the trail, somewhere...


So I jump in the truck and screw back to the road crossing and start walking, although the trail was packed and groomed, it was really beginning to snow hard.
After walking 2-3 miles on the trail and not finding it, I hear my cell phone ring.
I thought I recognized the number, but when I answered it, the voice on the other end was unfamiliar.

The voice said, is this John? I said yeah, he said I was just talking with your wife and she gave me your cell number and I have your wallet!!

You can't believe how relieved I was, we met up shortly after and sure enough there it was!!

Needless to say this “good Samaritan” will be receiving a little something from me in the mail expressing my gratitude...

Thanks John T. from Henrietta NY!!!

Most of the snowmobilers I have met probably would have done the same, he didn't want to give me his address in fear that I would send along a reward..I had to coax it from him...what a guy!!! thumbguy

A side note to folks that carry cameras and such, you may want to tape on a nametag, phone number and address so that the guy who finds it can call you as soon as its found...

Never my wallet, but strange reading your post. I live in Henrietta,NY & was out on probably the same trails as you, in Ontario NY, over the weekend & lost my cell phone out there the same way. Never found it.The first time it's ever happened to me & hopefully will be the last. :eek:

gstrong1,

Do you have any idea where you may have lost it?

I ride those trails everyday, and I will be out again this afternoon.
If you have an idea where it may have been lost it might help, but I will keep my eyes open and if I find it you will be hearing from me.

Wow, some really good story's here in this thread, glad to see most ended with a happy ending..

Gary, no luck yesterday with your cell, too much new snow and the trail was groomed and packed since the weekend.
I will keep an eye open for you at the poker run.
The trails look like they should be in great condition for the poker run.
See you there..
John
