Ok, I've seen a lot and heard a lot of stupid things, but this must be near the bottom.

How could you miss the big, multiple "Pass Closed" signs for Chinook (or Cayuse for that matter) Pass??

I like seeing some true grit like that out on the road! Here's a guy who gives it his all, bravely ignores warning signs because he trusts his gut like he trusts a good dog. Guy heroically puts it upon himself to get home to get a meal upon the table, even if it means leanin' on the whiskey little bit more than usual to stay awake on the drive, he's taking matters into his OWN hands. And we're gonna say he's stupid!!? Whatever happened to values like grit, rigor, bravery!!!!

More like “Bush Whiskey” probably couldn’t see the signs through the clouds of smoke.

He must have had some good speed going, given the apparent distance he jumped that car across the snow...

He's a talented goofball. Perhaps he's had many years of practice.

It’s going to cost him. Air bags alone are a piece of change.

The vehicle will almost certainly be considered a "total loss" by the insurance company.   An event that results in Airbag deployment almost certainly does additional structural damage to the frame and suspension.

Snowberms are always soft and GPS directions are always correct.

I can think of two similar attempts where the GPS said it was the way to go, even though the snow got deeper and deeper and the signs said road not open in the winter...but GPS said it was.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

GPS and Google still indicate you can get to Index via Jack's Pass.

I passed an old beater of a vehicle on my way home from hiking to Wlliams Lake, back when the MFK road was open to the end.  The driver flagged us down and asked if this was the right road to get to Cle Elum. We were probably a mile or two from the end.  Nothing like driving a few hours on the worst road in WA only to find out you have to turn around and head back the way you just came...unless the plan was to walk, which it didn't appear to be.  This was before GPS led them astray.  Alcohol and meth instead, from the looks of them.
