I was on Phase II Sunday Aug 19 and my Garmin computer broke/fell off within the first 2-3 miles. This was the day Giant/Roll, etc. had demos in the parking lot. My Garmin is orange and grey--must be somewhere on/near the trail. If anyone has it or picks it up I would appreciate arranging to get it back. Thanks! Cody Aug 21, 2018
