Wow! Amazing story.  Hope he fully recovers and is able to get back out there again!

You should always tell somebody where you are going and when you'll be back. He's lucky he didn't run into a brown snake on his crawl. They are very common in that area and are just starting to become active after winter. He's very lucky!

Very lucky to have been found.

""Straight away, I thought, 'I'm now in a lot of trouble because no-one knows where I am,"

Should be a mantra.

As an experienced hiker and a guide, I guess he thought the rules didn't apply to him. Going into the bush alone w/o telling anyone is a rookie mistake. He's lucky he lived.

A movie in the making. This reminds me of 48 hours.

I learned it from reading Jack London: Never travel in the wilderness alone.

this just proves my opposition to exercising in the Aussie bush is totally valid! Anyrime I want to see nature, I just turn on a tv nature show. If, one day, I stupidly decide to exercise again, I'll set up a tv in front of my high tech exercise bike, and 'go for a ride in the bush', can't get bitten, fall off a waterfall or get lost!
