    Default Sena module dropped off and disappeared into ivy hedge

    Shit. I must not have clipped the module onto my helmet properly
    I was dangling over a roof, heard a bang...then next time I tried to talk to my groundie, nothing.
    So I realized the bang was the module falling onto the roof...it must have bounced and gone plop right into the deepest darkest portion of a thick ivy hedge on the wall next to the house.
    We looked in the gutters, in the alley, we raked we shook...that module is stuck inside somewhere way deep.

    So, do I have to buy a whole new unit?

    Fiona, you have a chance at recovery. My Sena went into the Lake of Ozarks. Unfortunately, I didn't have Gary's underwater model of Sena...

    The water was about 4'... after the job I took my pants off and waded in, hoping to find them. It was cold as shit and I failed in my mission.

    The glasses were about a month old. Basically, I worked for free that day.

    Check on Amazon. Not too bad. About 150.00 and change US$. The SMH10. Guessing that is what you had. Buying pairs saves a little and you have a back up.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    That blows, Fi. Have you thought about offering a couple of street urchins $50 to the first one to find it, consolation award of $25 to the one who didn't? It would be found, I expect .

    Every time I lost something on the job and couldn't find it I have gone back a day or two later alone with no time or job pressure and search again. High success rate with this tack , and I often think , shit I went right by it yesterday.

    Angle of light in the situation can make a difference...go at a different time of day...use a flashlight, probably in shadows.
