What are some treasures you all have been lucky to stumble upon while riding?

I found a crescent wrench, a box wrench (snap-on brand), and weed trimmers.

The other day while riding under a bridge getting repaired, i was lucky to find a brand new shiny nail! Incidently, I haven't bought screws or the like in a long time-I just find them & keep them!

On a non-riding side note, while working at Home Depot, I was fortunate enough to find a billfold, with nothing but hundreds & fifties in it, and a gambling-poker sheet.
Without hesitation (& wondering if they were conterfeit) I handed it over to the manager on duty.
He told me that night, after putting it in the store safe, that there was $2300 cash!
The store contacted the police, and in 2 days the original owner claimed it as his.
To my surprise, He rewarded me a crisp $100 bill.

I never pick up these items or return for them, but I've seen:
A small radiator I believed to be from a Porsche in the grass behind tire ruts
The key to a car
A motorola bluetooth headset
a lot of gloves
a luckily crashlanded R/C airplane accross a canal from a nearby park
2 or 3 wire frame signs like realtors use and a lot of other banal crap.

#1- Someone's catch which probably fell off their roof, trunk, etc. I can just imagine the story- "No, really, this time it didn't get away- someone must've taken it from us at the gas station!"

#2- Same fish, same place, 3 days later.

Hmm.. on one ride I found a possum, 2 snakes, 2 cats, and an armadillo. Not really treasures, but I saw more road kill than I was expecting to see.
LOL

The trails I ride are well traveled now so finding goodies is unlikely. My usual finds which I leave sitting there: possums, squirrel carcass (owl or hawks get to them), dog doo in abundance. Valve caps from cyclists who lose them when flatting and swapping.

Two crescent wrenches, one pair of channel locks (gave to my LBS wrench) and one four foot shale bar about forty five miles from the house. I had to leave the latter there but that was the one that I liked the most. Also, a perfectly good inner tube!:D
