    I was lost in the desert in 1986. I send a couple of days in hospital wich can be verified. I walked 55km over sand dunes with out food or water to save my fathers and my own life. Its a more interesting story than any other story ive read. Would anyone like to document it? I was 16.. Can be verified by hospital records on 2.1.86 at Liegh Creek hospital. Email craig.

      Sounds harrowing, Craig! Great to hear you made it through the experience. Will definitely keep you in mind if we do another story like this.

    If you need to be rescued ie found by the authorities because someone has reported you as missing in the outback or at sea – or you have activated your EPIRB, do you have to pay for it? My understanding is that being rescued in Canada for instance does not cost to be rescued?
