Lost and Found
« on: March 02, 2015, 06:44:58 PM »
On Shoen after you get to the top of the climb beginning at the connector, there's a wild grape vine hanging across the trail. The breakaway Go Pro mount on my helmet caught on it, and imagine this, broke off. It promptly disappeared into the snow. The mount probably isn't salvageable (I have a replacement on the way from Bell anyway), but I have some camera hardware (thumb screw and acorn nut) attached to it that I'd like to recover.


Unless you've got a great big magnet to root around in the snow, nobody will be finding it until the snow melts off. I wanted to put this out there, though, in case it turns up. I'll be headed out there at some point to look for it with a big magnet on a string to hopefully catch the metal bits.

If you need to borrow a big magnet on a string let me know.

A metal detector would be a lot quicker and easier. Assuming there is enough metal to find it with a magnet.

Maybe so...but I HAVE a couple strong magnets on a string already.

That's a good idea, but I'm hoping most of the snow is gone by the time I make it out there to look.
