    i found a 1k nikon one year at yellowstone and when i went to turn it in, the ranger said, "just keep it or someone here will just take it" way to go to the dude or dudette that turned it in ... now next year, PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR STUFF x****

    The lost & found people have always seemed cool to me. Two years ago, our friend lost her wallet, and the l&f people went through dozens of wallets before pulling hers out (still full of money and credit cards). And my boyfriend and I turned in a girl's credit card and license.

    losing your purse in 07 + losing your wallet in 08 = fannypack in 09

    Coachella is full of good Karma. We try to spread it to everyone and turn in everything we find! It makes for a great experience for all!

    Somebody found a phone on the ground before Pendulum played, and waved it in the air saying, "Anybody lose a phone?" I found it on the ground again 2 hours later and managed to get it back to its rightful owner after Fatboy Slim.

    Also, this group of 3 (2 girls 1 guy) were walking from the parking lot to the fest behind us, and one of the girls dropped her fucking ticket. She would have been so fucked had it not been for the saint behind her that picked it up and said, "hey you dropped this".

    GOOD KARMA ALL 'ROUND

    that should be a mandatory rule. lose wallet/purse two years in a row and you are forced to wear a fanny pack. lose the fanny pack and you have to carry everything in a bucket balanced on your head. no pockets allowed!

    anyway thats awesome you got your stuffs back

    Someone stole my locker key, took my stuff out, put theirs in, and put my stuff in a random locker. I thought it was stolen until one of the locker ladies (several hours later) suggested I look in one of the open lockers (mind you, they had a huge "SOLD OUT" sign out - why would I even think there were any open lockers). Anyway, I lucked out and my stuff was two lockers below in a locker that had no lock.

    But, yeah, fanny pack. Or, I take an ammo pack every year. Not as geeky.

    Someone found my truck key in the camp ground(it came off my key ring somehow). I would have been screwed. Coachella has the best karma. If anyone turned in a chevy key attached to one smaller key, you fucking rock!

    my friend found an ATM card and driver's license on the ground as we were leaving saturday. We found the guy like 30 feet in front of us just frozen, looking through all his pockets. My friend just walked up and said,"Is this you?" Turned out to be the right guy. we kept walking... yeah, coachella!

    A girl exiting one of the food courts dropped her cell phone without noticing and I stopped and pointed it out to her. She kinda just gave me a weird look without saying thank you....but whatever....just returning the favor like bmack, as i lost my phone last year and had it returned.

    Heh someone stole my wallet at the gym at 8 PM the night before Coachella, and my flight was 10 hours later at 6 AM. I lost all the money I had changed over to USD (I did it that same day at work).

    Thankfully it all worked out but I don't think I'll ever get my wallet back. I wish they just took the money, you know?

    Anyway, I found a wallet too at Coachella and returned it to the authorities.

    I lost my memory cards for my Camera. A 4 gig and a 1 gig. They were full of the best pictures I ever took in my life. I lost them between stage left of Roger Waters and the Middle of the back side the Sahara Tent during Justice.

    If anyone found them I will pay a big reward. I need my memories!! It hurts to loose all of it at once.

    Wow, lucky save. But you really had over $1,000 in cash in your wallet? At a music festival? Damn, you really like to roll the dice, don't you?

    Coachellans are the best people on the planet. Stealing someone's wallet or cash would not only be morally reprehensible, and would result in karmic forces banishing you from next year's Coachella.

    Rock on, returners of lost items, we salute you

    I lost my telephone, and it wasn't returned to lost and found. Mind you, it might have disappeared down a port-a-potty.

    The word on the streets was that Dani was working the lost and found. That's where most of the good karma probably comes from.

    I lost my ID, checked lost and found a few times but no luck. Hopefully someone will mail it to me. The good thing though, I had an extra so I was still able to get into the beer garden. YAY!!!

    You're not Melody Gonzales, are you? That's whose ID and credit card we returned. If you are and they didn't have it, then someone needs to talk to this Dani.

    i dropped my camera at the end of the prince set on saturday and someone turned it in IMMEDIATELY and i was able to pick it up at lost and found when the gates first opened on sunday.

    that's fucking AWESOME.... i was worried whoever found it would turn it in at their leisure and i could have been without a camera for the majority of the day on sunday. i wish i knew who it was so i could give them a great big hug.

    it's so great that coachellans are so glad to help out their fellow festival-goers. if i had lost my camera anywhere else i can assure you it would be pocketed by some punk-ass kid and sold on e-bay.

    on saturday i found a hotel keycard for someone staying at the westin, i never got around to returning it. i didn't know where lost and found was, none of the security i asked knew (sup with that?) and figured they'd have a duplicate card as most hotels give you two when you check in and worst case scenario they'd just have to ask the front desk for a new one

    sunday when i was getting ready to leave the hotel i was staying at, both my keycards stopped working. coincidence?
