Good lesson in that story, they (he) picked that route because I-80 was closed due to heavy snow, and he thought they could save time by going around instead of waiting a couple hours for it to reopen. The first road they will ever get open in any area is the interstate! Don't leave the direct efficient way (interstate) with the big snow blowers and big budget and think that the back roads are going to be better. Then when you start across on the dirt road in your pickup truck and the snow starts getting deeper and deeper, just keep going till you get fully stuck. They are lucky they lived and they still ended up sueing the Cedarville hospital for the frostbite damage their own stupidity cost them. That was some bad decision making every step of the way there.
