Woman follows G.P.S., gets stuck in snowmobile trail

A motorist Langlade, Wisconsin was relying on a G.P.S. navigation unit found out the hard way that technology is not always the answer. Sheriff's officials said a woman was driving when the best routing from the G.P.S. sent her onto a road that forked into a snowmobile trail. Several miles down the frozen path she stopped and couldn't turn around in about a foot and a half of snow surrounding the car.
She called 911 at 10:44 a.m.
Deputy Keith Svoboda said it took a while to find her and much longer to get heavy equipment in to free the vehicle. Deputies dropped her at a motel for the night.
Svoboda said the lesson is, "People shouldn't believe everything those things tell you."
