    Quite interesting although no return instructions on it so I don’t know where it’s from unfortunately.

    It’s a radiosonde. They’ll already have the data off it so it’ll be junk.

    If you contact vaisala I think they might have to arrange for disposal under WEEE regs.

    Well it was more interesting then the plastic snake I found literally in the middle of knowhere when looking for new lines through the trees at the woods. Strange.

    I found a nice set of carbon kayak paddles. Bit awkward riding home with them.

    I found a massive mug with I heart Coffee on it.

    I kept it, but dont like it. Its so big the coffee goes cold too quickly.

    Might have a half decent GPS chipset in it, if you ave any electronic skills/knowledge might be able to get some use out of it?

    It’s probably off a weather balloon.

    its probably from a weather machine, my brother used to work for them and Ive sent him the link.

    Yep brother confirms its a base of weather balloon.

    It has no value.

    I found a packed up tent, but it turned out to be a childs non-waterproof single skin thing – guy at work appreciated it. Also found a tatty skateboard, again went to friends kid. Luckily both were near to the end of the rides I was on.

    rocketdog – that looks like a roaming tether for a goat.

    Did you see a goat?

    nice wheel, but what is that hideous mass of tubes next to it? some sort of fly tipped tower scaffold? 😉

    I once found an unopened big bag of tangfastics. It doesn’t get any better than that.

    A couple of weeks a go I found two packs of Birds Dream Topping (unopened) by the side of a country lane.

    They’re now mine, mwhahaahaha.

    jam bo- where did you find the blades? a mate lost his a month ago on the Tawe. Maybe he could make you an offer?

    Found a largeish bag of grass while skiing a few weeks back. Not my thing, but stuck it in my pocket as, living in a ski resort, there’s no shortage of people who would appreciate it!

    Walking back down through the resort and I’m thinking “OK, so the chances of a random stop-and-search are pretty small, but what would I say? ‘I found it’?” 😆

    Carbon,

    I will have that off you if you don’t want it. May have GPS chipset depending on model.

    I had a habit last year of finding shoes, one of which was the kind of horrible “bling’d-up” gem-studded sabago that only Michael Winner would be seen wearing whilst presenting an award at the Oscars.

    I remember coming across two carcasses of (to me) totally unknown beasts while on an evening run about 5 years ago. Right next to each other, but no idea what they were.

    I expect it was tied to a fighting dog who was forced to drag it a few miles.

    Bet there’s some great stuff in that for hacking! Good find!

    Two minutes ride into the woods (we’re talking State Forest in Australia here) and a bed head and old fecked TV. WTF? There was a perfectly good fly tip point at the trail head too as it turned out.

    More fun was in the middle of nowhere (TM) finding an old holden car. There must’ve been a more substantial trail at some point in the past, resulting in the car wreck making sense – since then a complete set of bushland has grown up around it. Was very strange to see it there.

    Also odd, again middle of nowhere, but at least on a power line access road, an old engine block, minus any parts, just the block. I’m assuming it was dumped in the back of a truck to give traction.

    Many a single shoe of course. Never understood that.

    Nevr mind goats’ tethering points – me and my mate found a goat’s head by the cenotaph near Banchory-Devenick just outside Aberdeen.

    My mate’s aunty lived nearby in the woods and whilst we sat and eat drop-scones, cooked on her hot griddle (no jokes please) she told us about the local witches’ coven 😯

    Loads of it still going on – chanting and nakedness and all sorts. Might have to go back with the camera…

    Many a single shoe of course. Never understood that.

    I can answer that one.

    Mrs Q would get into her car and for some unknown reason slip one shoe off before getting in sometimes. Because she always drove bare foot (I know, but that is another thread) she slipped the other shoe off inside the car.

    She would then drive off forgetting her right shoe was there. NOt alway, just sometimes. I didnt know about this until I was cleaning the car out and found half a dozen left shoes, she explaiend to me what had happened.

    I then one day witnessed it when we had moved back here in Tesco car park.

    Part way home she realised her shoe was missing. SO I drove back and there it was in the parking space waiting for her.
