Members of missing Oregon family rescued from snowbound RV
The Stivers set off from their Ashland home March fourth. He says they told deputies they had plenty of food and propane in their 35-foot RV and even saw TV reports about the search for them.
When the search was canceled, the younger couple hiked out, which took about 24 hours.
Well, the media glorifies stupidity again!

Now, they spent 17 days in a well-stocked RV, meaning they likely had propane, certainly had food and water (or could melt snow), and how much you want to bet there was a fair amount of alcohol in that vehicle?
And this is what they call "survival"? No. Sorry. Survival is when your plane crashes in the Andes and after three weeks of starving, you are forced to resort to cannabalism.
Survival is when you're rock climbing and you get wedged in between to boulders and you have to saw off your arm with a pocket knife in order to get free to get help.
Survival is NOT sitting on a couch, no matter how many people you have to squeeze onto it, to watch TV for days on end about how people are looking for you.
Note to the Stivers: LIGHT A FUCKING FIRE AND BURN A FEW TREES IF YOU WANT PEOPLE TO NOTICE YOU!!!!! HULLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO??????
