    Lucky Gamekeeper

    Think this guy should put a bet on the lottery as someone's looking after him!

    Now don't get me wrong here. I am glad that the guy is ok. But it's not that big a deal. Ever heard of a guy named Shackleton and what him and his team survived? Gives a sense of perspective. And there's lots of other stories. Doug Scott crawling down from The Ogre with two broken legs for example.

    Great outcome. That is one bleak place to break down. Not seen "Big White Hunter" on here for a while, but as head keeper would surely of been very concerned when one of his team didn't return. Hats off to all concerned especially the mountain rescue/helicopter personnel.

    Glad it turned out well but would credit him with a large gob of commonsense and luck - as the saying goes, you make your own luck in life

    Guess he didn't probably get any help with it from BASC either?

    Told he only had a 50-50 chance so wasn't much they could do....

    Well done to all involved. Clearly the H&S and all those risk assessments paid off in this instance as he done the correct thing and had is PPE with him.
