Ok - Major fail.

Went on a 'Tag Tour' today - 237 miles. 7 'tags' - Got home and my camera was not in my pocket!

I think I must have left it on top of my rear pannier after the last tag. Went back to that one but could not find it.

Oh well - Just have to do it again....

Tried but no-one had spotted anything. It could have stayed on the bike for quite a few hundred yards and 'bounced' literally anywhere.

Not worth scrabbling around in undergrowth and ditches to try and locate it.

Not good @Grumpy Old Git you should maybe think about maybe using your mobile phone for pics and then not have to buy a new camera!

That would be OK but I use a 'monkey' tripod thingy to mount the camera when I am at a tag and away from the bike (so I get a pic of me with the tag-sign). To use my mobile, I'd need a 'selfie stick'.

The camera was fairly cheap anyway!

Good point @Grumpy Old Git!

I just usually take a pic of the bike without me in it! we already have enough ugly mugs posted without me adding to it :D
