Maybe these folks were a little overconfident, but they did most things right. After a week in the cold, they came out intact. And have plans to retrieve their stranded vehicle and go out again.

What are "two junior chickens"? Is it a Canadian thing? Luckily they were able to "smoke a couple bowls" while awaiting rescue! grin Sounds like they made it out with a good story to tell.
