I bet these young guys think twice before heading out again so ill equiped, with the really cold wet weather we have lately they could have easily gotten into some serious trouble. another lesson learnt perhaps ? hope they sort themselves out with some basic survival gear for the next time they head into the bush.

 

 

below is the link and story.

five teenagers spent the night in the bush near Tauranga after they became lost while pig hunting, police say.

 

The teens, all believed to be male, were wearing light clothes, had no water and food and were ultimately ill-equipped for the storm which lashed the country this morning, Tauranga police acting senior sergeant Dan Roser said.

 

The group, which are all in their late teens, lost their way while pig hunting in the bush near Kaiate Falls yesterday morning.

 

One of them contacted the police yesterday, but was unable to give any indication of the group's whereabouts.

 

The group, and their three dogs, were found by a search and rescue team just before 8am.

 

Roser said anyone who is thinking of going out into the bush should have the right clothing, drink, food and should familiarise themselves with the area.

 

They should let people know where they're heading and check the weather forecast.

There's a large state land area here that has a deep gorge that people like to hike, three or four times a year people get lost and spend the night offen injured from falling of the cliffs. Two young girls thought it was fun to hike in bikinis, yep.... They spent the night to and it dropped to about 38 that night. It's amazing how stupid people can be.
