While biking the Lewis River Trail, my first bike trail of the trip, I looked down and to my surprise my wireless bike computer popped out of its holder and is now somewhere behind me, probably at the trailhead. So should I go back and try to find the needle in the haystack? Earlier on I was hitting the tree roots and rocks pretty hard and fast, the odds are good it popped off-trail and is now hiding from view somewhere in the greenery. Well of course I do! I misplaced my wallet earlier in the day only to find it, maybe lady luck is still smiling down upon me.

Not far from where I noticed the computer was missing I managed to find it. It was sitting right smack in the middle of the trail. Indeed, lady luck has taken a fancy to me today.
