It is quite possible that on more than one occasion between now and the THE HILLARY you will find yourself mis-placed in the bush, for a brief moment in time. It is surprisingly easy to get lost or worse in the bush. Here's how to make sure that becoming mis-placed becomes a great story to tell your mates, rather than your slow agonising demise.
