ABC Letter T for tramping

Two foreign trampers were found dead last night. They didn't have proper equipment and didn't know our changeable weather.

Many years ago, a friend from England studying here in New Zealand went tramping alone. He was ill equipped in our ever changing weather. He took a wrong turn, and slipped into a deep creek. He hurt his ankle and was in pain.

He told us, he was praying hard because he felt he really was going to die.

I was given this emergency survival sleeping bag. I have seen them used on TV.  I thought of my friend, freezing cold in the creek. If only my friend had a sleeping bag like this, his night in the bush alone won't have been so harrowing.

The bag is very compact and folds up slightly bigger than your palm, and won't take up too much space in your back pack.

I borrowed this photo from I didn't want to open up my bag.
