You Are Willfully Ignorant

Story about a couple who were stranded in their Jeep. What the story doesn't tell is this: They couldn't get it into four wheel drive!


Just how stupid do you need to be? Turn off a paved road onto a dirt road. Encounter snow, then more snow. Continue on in two wheel drive.

Reminds me of a story many years ago in LOOK magazine. Man, wife and daughter, flying in mountains in winter, crashed their single engine airplane. Father decided to walk out for help. He was never found. Mother and daughter kept a diary. When the wreckage was located, the diary was recovered. They wrote the diary on the pages of an Airman's Information Manual directly over the section giving information on what to do if you crash.

I am glad the couple is safe.
