We couldn’t believe it, JHAB-7 had been lost since April. She said she found it just up the hill from the trail and she hiked it back for us. We said we would be out there Sunday to pick it up.

 

 

We arrived at Joshua Tree around 2, and met Jodi, she recounted her story of how and where she found it and then let us know that the Federal Rangers would like to speak with us.

We had some explaining to do

We thanks her again (gave her a nice thank you gift) and went to meet with the Rangers. We get to the Ranger station and there it was, JHAB-7, still intact, weather beaten but still in pretty good shape.

After we explained to the Rangers what it was all about, they took a report and even posed for a picture

After the interrogation, the Rangers were friendly

The outside GoPro’s are damaged from the exposure, but the video’s from all three cameras were recovered and look great! The internal GoPro 3, the Radio’s are all working fine!

We’ll edit some of it and post soon.
