Remarkable NZ story. A woman with a lot of bush experience set out on a four day hike, got disoriented, injured her leg, and kept herself alive for six weeks while finding her way out. http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/...n-for-six-weekshttp://www.stuff.co.nz/national/89117310/Shelley-Crooks-remarkable-story-of-survivalhttp://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealan...sing-woman.htmlhttp://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealan...-six-weeks.html
Lots of classic woulda-shoulda takeaways here, the first of which is to leave specific information so that people know when you are overdue and where to look. Better all around.
But I have to voice some admiration as well. She obviously has strong survival skills, the wit to use them, and the will to keep going. A win is a win.
