What happened?

I had left on the Saturday morning on a solo backpacking hunting trip in the Victorian high country, when I was out hunting the following morning I broke my ankle and fibula .

I had no phone reception or couldn’t get anyone on the vhf radio so I used my PLB.

Within 45 minutes I had a helicopter above me , which picked me up and took me to my home town to reunite with my wife and children, so the PLB saved a lot of stress!

Words of wisdom

Solo backpacking/hunting is only a good idea if you have an ACR beacon!

Thank you note

Thank you ACR!
