Hi from New Zealand
« on: December 03, 2013, 09:02:42 PM »
Hi All

Hello from Auckland, New Zealand.
Being so close to many great walks and tracks throughout both the North and South Island, Good navigation is a must as we have all types of terrain and conditions you can think of. We still have a very wild untamed landscape that requires respect every time you step into it.
 
As a current member of LandSAR we spend a lot of time on navigation exercises with both the local Police and Air Force personnel to maintain and improve our ability in an incident response, after reading through the manual and forum post's, it's great add a heap of extra info into my tool kit for future use. 

Thanks Aaron

Hi Aaron :)

What a fabulous country you live in. A good friend of mine is a member of one of your Southern alpine MRTs, responsible for Aorak and the surrounding area and your country organises some of the best SAR conferences, so well done for joining  LandSAR; it would be great to hear more about your team.
