Well no one has claimed the MEC Winter Mitt. I called MEC and they said to drop it off to any of their stores as they always have folks coming in hoping to match up some piece of gear that they have lost. So I will wait a few more weeks as I have also posted the item on the West Coast Paddler Forum and on Quadra Island where I found it. After that the mitt's new home will be the Calgary MEC.
I found one orange tubbs snow shoe on the way down from munro lake to quarry road.I didn't bring it home jut incase someone went looking for it, I left it at the junction where the trail leaves the road. I hope the owner reads this.
