You ever forget your gear? - Page 3

post #61 of 63

First day I skied last season I got all suited up in the lodge and reached into my bag for my gloves.  Nada, not even a some liners.  Then I remembered they were all in a big bag of extra ski gear.  I did not need another pair of gloves so I headed for the lost and found box where odd gloves and mittens end up.  I found two gloves, not a pair, that fit, mostly, and headed out.  Thought my hands would freeze before I got to the top of the lift, but I did get in several runs that day.  When I got home the first thing I did was put the gloves in my ski bag.


Many years ago I drove all the way from Denver to Cheesman Canyon for fly fishing only to discover that I somehow forgot the reel.  A couple of years ago I forgot my cycling shoes at home when I drove to meet some people for an evening ride.

Reheated threads are better the next day!  (decade)


My friends picked up my son and me, and we were halfway to Stratton when I realized we'd left our boots.  If it had been just me, I'd have been mad, and I was.  But it was pretty embarrassing inconveniencing the friends.  We turned around, and I called my wife, and that totally sweet, charming, kind and generous thing said, "You wait in Westminster.  I'll bring them to you."


I've never done that again.

I just returned from a camping trip.  As we were crossing the bridge over the lake down the road from the campsite it hit me.  I forgot the damn bait.  The worms were sitting at home in the fridge.  Luckiest damn worms EVER!.  Anyway, some of the other scout dads brought plenty so I didn't have to drive back down the road to the bait store/gas station and buy more. 


All in all a good time.  And, not the first time I've forgotten the bait either..redface.gif
