I still have a good eye, look what I found today.

Spotted this in the middle of the road, in a puddle, driving 40 mph.
Happy day. :smile:

    A couple weeks ago my wife and I went to a State Park to do some kayaking. After getting the kayaks ready to launch, we took turns walking to the head in final preparations. I cut through a hurricane Michael ravaged picnic area on my way back to the launch ramp, there sitting in the middle of the picnic area laying on the dirt, was a fresh $20.00 bill. No one anywhere in site. Strange, but made for a happy kayaking trip!

    Oh how I LOVE this hobby!

    I made a u-turn to see if it was what I thought it was, passed it and made another u-turn, slowed, put hazard lights on, opened door, scooped it up, closed door and continued on my way. :smile:

    I was gassing the car last week and daydreaming while doing so, and when finished pumping/daydreaming I thought I saw a bill laying on the ground a few pumps ahead of me.
    I dismissed it as a greenish-white colored crushed paper cup, but then I just had to see what it was.
    It was a crumpled up dirty $20.
    It had been quite some time since my last paper money find.
    While I felt sorry for the person who lost it, that feeling didn't last very long!

    Nice find! I spotted a quarter once, on the ground outside a convenience store. A ten year old kid beat me to it.

  • rickoricko Posts: 67,203 ✭✭✭✭✭

    In all my years of 'ground watching', I have found two $20 bills - individually - and four $20 bills folded together once in a busy bar parking lot.... I still keep my eyes on the ground hoping for a repeat... ;) Cheers, RickO

    My best ground spot was a $100 and $50 folded together on the ground.

    @bigtime36.... Double Wow..... Nice find indeed.... Cheers, RickO

    I would have liked to see the tire marks or the quick u-turn!

    Cool. So get this.....I stop on the highway between Vegas and LA to change drivers. I'm the passenger and get out and walk behind our car to go get into the driver's seat. I'm standing there watching traffic zoom by at 80 and no break in the traffic. So, just looking down I see a quarter, face up in the middle of the right lane. Of course I cannot read the date and I just stood there thinking: can an old man of 73 dart out into that lane of traffic, between vehicles, and grab it and dart back before being squashed? Nah, it's still right there....still think about it a month later.

    Wow... It might have been a silver quarter....I would have made the dash....Or, it could have been the quarter to win the prize in the quarter slots... :D Well.. you probably made the right decision... glad you are still here. Cheers, RickO
