If you wish to see the true self of a mountain rescue team member, have them called out at 7:30 on a Saturday morning. The slightly bewildered look, trying to comprehend the situation, location etc., the different array of bed-head hair, the slightly disappointed look on the faces who know that the bacon butties, toast etc. that were being considered a little earlier are now confined to history and the odd item of sleep-wear poking out... A family of four were reported benighted, but with an uncertain location.
