Most times thou it is very rewarding whether your successful or not at least you tried, and that is important not just for you but also the others involved. Pengy got me back into Land SARS. I am at the moment setting up a swift maritime response unit for the Lake and the Police are 110% behind it. You will also met great people and get the chance to go in to some pretty amazing country. The other plus is that your hunting access and skills will be improved especially around GPS and map reading. Don't procrastinate do it now they need you.
    All Canterbury SAR ops are meant to be run by Christchurch but it takes them at least 2 hrs to get organised and up here, in which time we have usually already solved the problem. Therefore we tend to have a bit of unofficial autonomy.

    I don't think any injury, just wandering away in opposite direction...he was on Waipapa track when found so I guess he was wandering towards Karangahake Gorge
