64gb SD card found. Undamaged. Full of pics and drone video.
Identify it and make a $50 donation to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and I will post it to anywhere in Australia.
Cheers,
Peter

Great that you found it and irrespective of your honorable intentions. Please be careful how you deal with this situation as the law frowns on demanding or seeking any sort of advantage, whatever it form it takes, to return property to its owner.

Oh FFS Peter is trying to do the right thing by everyone. And not even covering costs.

Good on him.

Those with knowledge of anything "out of the city" would normally want to reward the finder. Peter doesn't want a reward and will forego that reward but would like to see somone else receive a benefit, ie, rfds. Normal in the bush! Understand?

Did you demand a charitable donation prior to returning it?

Hope Pete never finds a lost generator, would probably hold that for a huge ransom :)

Generators don't usually slip out of a pocket or camera slot as far as I know. Maybe with green illusion technology, maybe, nah.

I think it is a good idea and a very common request in the outback as a sign of appreciation for a good deed

There is no personal gain for Peter so don’t see what the problem is. I am sure that if the personal circumstances of the card owner were such that they were not in a position to make a donation he is not going to hold it ransom

Wasn't a "demand". Simply an offer.
And that was a legal opinion.

Lucky Peter didn't accidentally write "OR I'll post it anywhere in Australia" then Allan?

Amazing how small changes in language can convey completely different meanings.

So to make a donation to the RFDS, it would necessitate losing your data card. Come on, make a donation anyway, like many of us do.

Now that a few of you are wound up, here is another RFDS donation story....... :)
Just one day before we found the SD card, we found a bloke named Kevin in a sticky situation in a remote corner of a tributary of the South Alligator River.
He made a mistake and found himself down to the floor pan with no exit option in sight and little likelihood of passing traffic.
After the Max Tracks, the shovel and the tyre pressure reductions combined had all failed, the OKA was manoeuvred into a spot with some difficulty and a winch extraction was effected.
Kevin was very grateful. He estimated it would have taken a week to extract himself.
He put $100 cash into our RFDS collection tin and made another donation of a similar amount on line later and sent us the receipt.
The RFDS thanks you Kevin.

Cheers,
Peter

Hey, Peter,

Every year after our AGM and national gathering, our Kimberley Karavan Owners Group donates at least $3000 to RFDS. Considering that we do that without anyone being stuck beforehand (well, none that they admit to!), would you be available from time to time to effect the occasional rescue should it become necessary?

:-)

Gimbat crossing, lucky we didn't find him. It would have cost him a bit more than a $100.

I can see a good "trend" developing here. I will now ask all those I assist with power from my generator to make a donation to the RFDS. No need to thank me with a beer either :)

Aussie1 this wouldn't have been for my services, I am a Ranger in that district and this fella is doing the wrong thing. He would be coping a fine for driving off track and around a closed gate.

So that's where that is? Thanks Steve.

We walked around the gate, & went up to Gimbat. An acquaintance worked there back in the pre National Park days, so it was on the bucket list. Doubt if I'll ever get there again.

Extortion or extraction racket Alby?

Steve, you're jumping to conclusions. It's pretty obvious that fella was blown off course during a freak wind storm then got carried downstream by the proverbial 12 o'clock Sth Alligator wave.

The TREND which I can see, is you appear to be confusing the finding of an object and trying to return it compared to offering your generator to someone and expecting reward of action. A completely different set of circumstances.

RMD,

Not confused at all Cobber. Just thinking "outside the square", Purely in the interest of the RFDS. Just like our Cobber Pete.

Did you perhaps notice Pete's latest "adventure" helping to winch someone out of a situation. resulting in more income for the RFDS? And that did not involve "finding an object". But did appear to qualify.

All the same RMD, thank you for your input on this very important blog subject.
