Into the great unknowns, at the mercy of our brand new GPS and a cup of coffee.

    How to get there?

  1. Follow GPS directions only!

  2. Open and activate your brand new GPS.

  3. Put your family and friends in the auto. Note: Do not worry about weather conditions, availibility of fuel or other potential hazards.

  4. Head east into the mountains.

  5. Turn off state highway onto local road.

  6. Take a short cut.

    no cell phone service? no extra food, water or emergency supplies? with an 11-month-old baby? Now you are stuck in the snow.

    Now what?

  7. Take exploratory hikes.

  8. Try digging out of the snow.

  9. Spend the night in your car.

  10. Distraught, film a goodbye video.
