Stay in the car, stranded motorists!

Reo: I'm from the Oregon mountains, Peo is from Idaho and we know something that evidently many other people do not...
Peo: All caps buddy.
Reo: STAY IN YOUR CAR if you are stranded on a snowy road. NO MATTER WHAT. Even if you are out of gas and food. The only time you should get out is to use the toilet or to get some snow or water to drink.
Peo: You can be found on the road, not so easily in the woods.
Reo: Storms don't last forever, you will be found. Someone will come along or rescuers will fly along the roads and look for you. If you leave your car, you will die of exposure.
Peo: Tell people where you are going, your route and expected arrival time so they know where to look if you don't show up.
Reo: And pack blankets, water and food. People used to do this in the old days and have gotten away from it the last few years. Believe me, most all of central Oregon and central Idaho has NO mobile phone service.
Peo: Stay in you car.

I think that some people just like to wander aimlessly into the wild risking their life. It's like jumping into one of those shark cages into a school of Great White Sharks or seeing what would happen if you stuck a high-powered drill into your head. What a rush!!!
