“Early in May this year I was rescued on Mt Isobel in hanmer by a group of awesome people just like you and I who set out on a crappy winter night determined to find me and a friend before leaving the mountain. Drenched and freezing cold, out of daylight I had to hunker down for around 6 long hours before being found. I don’t think I would have been alive to walk out in the morning had I not been found. These volunteers were calming and professional and got me to safety (which ironically was only a couple of hundred metres away) Thanks so much team, you are amazing. Glad to be alive.”

in the Tararua Ranges but their kindness, humour, support and professionalism were amazing.
