Dropped My Meridian Platinum In The Porta-john.


Recommended Posts

I was off work today and decided to go geo caching and was on my 2nd

cache when nature called me. I troted to the near by porta john and

undid my belt with GPS holster on side. I turned to get toliet paper

to wipe the seat and I heard a splash. I looked and the holster and

GPS were in that beutiful blue water they place in the holding tanks

of those big green plastic crappers. When I picked up the holster

splash again and it fell out the unzipped end. I rinsed the holster

and GPS off with a nearby hose for 10 minutes. One good note was the

porta john had just been cleaned that morning and it looked like I

was the first to use it since being cleaned(OR at lease I hope so).

I laughed after it happened, but was mad as a coot when I heard that

splash. I can say this, a meridian does float and is waterproof.

It seems to be perfectly fine. ;)

Should I post a warning to the garage sale forum page? :lol:

It was gross and I hope to never repeat it again. When it first happened I thought it was my Nextel. Between the two I'm glad it was the Platinum, because the nextel is not waterproof. I did have a crappy day by the way. And No Magellans don't belong there. And No the life guard for Magellans was not on duty. And No I didnt use it to wipe with. And No I didnt do it on purpose because it was a Magellan.

Any more I didnt think of?

I dropped 35 cents in an outhouse once. I took out my wallet and thru in a 20 after it. My ole lady says "What did you do that for?" I said " You don't think I'm goin down THERE for 35 cents do you?"

I heard it was his watch but same concept. My dad told me that one a long time ago. He is cheap enough to go after .35 in an outhouse.

Was this a even trade or trade up? Sorry, couldn't resist. I love my Mag Plat.
