Please stay lost

On second thoughts, eat the grass. Keep moving, walk down the scrubby gully into the overgrown creek, and if you should hear an aircraft approaching, hide under some bark and avoid being spotted. Please. At least stay out of sight long enough for the searchers to get out of their vehicles and do some searching.

This is a photo of the helicopter I didn't get a ride in yesterday. We were to search an inaccessible section of King River between Pineapple Flat and Lake William Hovell, and there was some talk of winching in search teams. Now that would have been cool. But instead the lost guy got the free winch and heli ride, and we turned around and drove home. Again.

Story in the Oz.
