What happened?

My PLB was set off in an emergency last Sunday. Very briefly I was solo walking in the upper Grose River when I got lost and as I had missed some medication earlier in the day I became disoriented, I also go myself stuck up a steep gully with no obvious way up or down. Following this I set off my PLB. Police rescue and a paramedic found me in about 2hrs 15min and helped me out. I spent the night in Katoomba hospital. 

Words of wisdom

Have your PLB with you at all times – even for short journeys. 

Thank you note

I’m not sure that mine was a life or death situation, but I would have spent a very uncomfortable night out had it not been for the PLB and subsequent police rescue
