    Australia - Martin Buckland, 33 & Daniel Kerr 32, Mt Bogong, Vic, 10 July 2014

    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/vic...-1226987302354

    A SEARCH is continuing for two snowboarding mates who have been missing for four nights in remote terrain on Victoria’s highest mountain, Mt Bogong.

    Martin (Martie) Buckland, 33, from Yarra Junction and Daniel Kerr, 32, from Hawthorn, have not been heard from since Thursday.

    A group of walkers came across the men’s campsite about 6am yesterday and found an unoccupied tent containing sleeping bags and other equipment.

    Avalanches have been reported at Mt Bogong during the past week.


    Hope they are found safe, I'm pretty sure I did a caving expedition with Martie back in March, really cool guy and very passionate about the outdoors.


    This is his blog.
