I will often find things while riding the XJ. Let's have a thread talking about the things we find on the road and we do with them. What have you found while riding your XJ?

Here are two things I've found, both while riding PBT:

1. An iPhone: I found this one laying smack-dab in the middle of the road and managed to pick it up before it was run over. I actually figured out who this one belonged to and returned it to her. She was a chef at a place near Cherry Creek Mall.

2. A memory card: This one was at a pull-off out in the middle-of-nowhere near Allenspark, CO. No luck in determining the owner, though, so I was unable to return it.

I've found lots of good stuff driving and riding! Glad I'm not the only road scavenger on here.

Some things I've found while riding:
- Nice pair of Aviator Sunglasses
- multiple tools (pliers, screwdrivers, wrenches and etc)
- 1 gal gas can
- pocket knifes
- a lady's drivers license (returned it to her)

While driving my Element, I spotted a vintage ice cream scoop in a round-about . After years of scavenging, you get an eye for it. :thumbsup:

Not an item find, but a "only in a small town" kind of thing...

There's a small town near me named Wellsville (yes, for real) that winds through some pretty country. There's a firehouse in the town square, and out on the front sign was:

"Friday - meat bingo"


Only in Pennsylvania..... :clap:

I found a smashed iPad today (actually my second time finding an iPad) while riding over lunch break.
