Wow. Just wow.

Last night I noticed that one of my FEMA deployment bags was missing from my home office; I had last seen it Saturday when I used the GPSr from the bag. This morning I got to my office in Hanover and there was a message from a hunter who found my bag in Claremont while hunting yesterday.

There was no sign of break-in at the office and more valuable/easier to fence items, such as a MacBook Pro, were not taken.

This afternoon, I went and got my bag back. The man who found it was very nice and his concern and effort to retrieve the bag and contact me makes me feel a little better about the entire situation.

Of the items I am sure were in the bag, I'm looking at a replacement cost of $1030. I'm sure MA-TF1 (my FEMA team) will cover the cost of their items; $275. Helmet (red Bullard USAR (construction style)), rain pants, gloves, eye protection, some light sticks.

$755 of that amount represents my own personal items. A lot of the items I'd had and used for years and had lots of memories attached. My GPSr had lead me many places and tracked a million trips. One of the lights I had found years ago in the road outside Zeitgeist when I lived there. Sonny Grover gave me my good work gloves when I was brand new on his department. I'd had the compass for 20 years, maybe; the multitool for 12. I'd bought the whistle during my very first WFR at SOLO. 

This just sucks.

Why would someone break into my office and just steal my 24-hour bag? It makes no sense.
