Recently I posted the story of a man who got lost for two days and then was lucky to get out of the Mt Anne region without a Personal Locator Beacon. Today the news is that a couple of walkers needed to use their Personal Locator Beacon in the same area. This good news can be read here. I am pleased to read that the walkers plan to make a donation because the cost of their rescue would have been thousands of dollars.
Both stories are timely reminders of how difficult the terrain can be in Tasmania. When coupled with the uncertainties of extreme weather, the walking experience can become very dangerous.
