GPS = Gets People Stranded

LA GRANDE, Ore. — A trucker who was missing for four days in a snow-covered part of Oregon after his GPS mapping device sent him up the wrong road walked 36 miles (58 kilometers) and emerged safely Saturday from a remote and rugged region of the state.

Im an advocate of Stay With The Vehicle… especially when the vehicle has 48′ of pallets of junk food to keep you fed. But…this guy marched out on his own, without taking any of the potato chips he was hauling, makes it back to his freaking house, and is sitting on the couch relaxing when his wife comes home from the sheriffs office where theyre coordinating a search-and-rescue.

Glad it worked out for him, but I’ll stay with the vehicle.
