What not to do

We often read of people going tramping while being unprepared for what is before them. Have a look at this rather worrying video which fortunately turns out ok for the trampers.

A veteran Taranaki mountaineer fears there will be another tragedy on Mt Taranaki because visitors don't realise how dangerous it is to climb in winter. https://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/300042066/warnings-for-visitors-taking-risks-on-mountain
I've only watched day two. Was that satire?
Trapped on a ridge, a young Wairarapa hunter feared he would die The pair made plans to walk out to the carpark at the Pinnacles, but van Praag became separated again. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/122000286/trapped-on-a-ridge-a-young-wairarapa-hunter-feared-he-would-die
Getting separated once is bad work, doing it twice is very hard to understand. Whoever was with him needs a royal kick up the arse.
It’s one of those things that baffles me. Having a gun doesn’t automatically make you a hunter or a bushman yet the cart often goes before the horse. Agree with PhilipW Could’ve been worse though, they could’ve shot each other 🙄
