Snowbound: The Jim and Jennifer Stolpa Story (TV Movie 1994)

In 2005, Loggins and Messina reconnected and decided to hit the road as a duo again. Messina made some albums that did not make much of a splash, but … Loggins' solo career took off. North of Redding, more deep snow closed that road, so the Stolpas turned east onto Highway 299, hoping to connect to Interstate 80 again via Nevada Route 140. There was a point almost 20 miles in where the road forks. My first complaint is it takes to long to get to the part where they are trapped in the snow. They thank birds for helping them survive. The episode originally aired November 3, 2005, and featured analyzing the Stolpas' actions and showing the viewers how to be better prepared for such a situation.

Just my thoughts and remembrances. Instead, they took off down an unknown road in the middle of nowhere. Second, they had a sleeping bag. I suppose I have a morbid curiosity. James had over 50 miles to hike with little food and no water before he found help.

What happened to Jim and Jennifer Stolpa

Here's a military soldier suddenly plowing into a thick snow covered road, as if he had no warning, while playing some kind of word game with his wife next to him in the car. I have just seen this movie on Danish national television prime time for the second time. And man-o-man is that spot out in the bush! One thing I didn't like about this film is how they portrayed them getting stuck in the first place. He had survived an incredible ordeal. This quick thinking helped them survive the freezing temperatures.

They are 50 miles from the nearest town on a back road, in a blizzard, and no one knows they are actually in Northern Nevada. When Peterson pulled up, James Stolpa yanked open the truck door and gave him a big handshake. Truly a great ending to this story when Clayton is found to be okay, and the family is relieved to know they will be together to take that walk on the beach just like they promised. In Extreme Endurance Efforts Use Small Rests To Keep Going When James left the snow cave for help, the family had already been through a 7-day ordeal. Not sure if this is where Stolpa walked to the east rather than following 8A to the north.

They were lost in a blizzard, and no one knew their location. Tom: his leg was shot, so that eve … ntually recovers; he then settlesdown eventually. Eventually, Jim must leave Jennifer out in the cold, and brave the elements himself as he walks nearly 100 miles in the freezing weather to find help. But, if we are no where to be found, we have started walking to 140 as it appears the closest place to find help. Ultimately, their pickup bogged down in snow about 150 miles north of Reno near the state border. Many miles later, their pickup got stuck in a snow bank. Luckily, they found a small cave in the side of a cliff, and got out of the wind.

Both went on to solo careers. Or how far the truck was from the intersection of 34 and 8A. It was late in December 1992 when the Stolpas set out in a winter storm for Idaho to attend a family funeral. While the local police do nothing to help the family, the Stolpa's parents take it upon themselves to organize a rescue operation, if they ever want to see the kids again. I felt the final recovery efforts, and the people involved, were glanced over at the end.

Realizing they will not be found and out of supplies, Jim ultimately strikes out on a courageous 50-mile walk through the snow alone, determined to reach help and return to save his loved ones before they die. They passed through the little community of Vya, Nev. And even the music sounded surprisingly good played through my old Dolby receiver. James provided detailed information and rescuers soon found the mother and child alive in the cave with little food and no water. After five days hunkered down in the truck, they trudged 12 miles through waist-deep drifts until the road disappeared into rugged wilderness. They had to turn around. Clayton Stolpa suffered no ill effects from the incident and is enrolled in college, Jennifer Stolpa said.

Jason is also a highly sought-after Keynote Speaker for conventions and corporate events. Rangers at Echo Summit recorded nearly 17 feet of snow that month. I wasn't disagreeing with your calling it a shortcut, just Stolpa. They got stuck the old fashioned way. The Stolpas should have stayed with their original travel plans and waited for Interstate 80 to re-open, but other choices meant the difference between life and death.

If anyone can shed some light on where Stolpa's truck broke down I'd be curious. The runtime of Snowbound: The Jim and Jennifer Stolpa Story is 120 minutes 02 hours 00 minutes. But if you do, the lessons learned from James and Jennifer Stolpa could save your life. He took them to the hospital in Cedarville available on call. There must have been more to the real story. Stolpa had hiked between 50 and 60 miles through the snowbound desert. A region-wide search had turned up nothing.

First, the family stayed with their vehicle and waited for help. It took a lot of talent to play that baby in a garment bag. They had to walk about 35-40 miles back not counting the distance they hiked up hills to try and get a cell signal. More like just a scenic alternate route. His parents were not so lucky. They find out too late that the snow is worse up there and they end up getting trapped in the snow miles from any civilization. Their struggles to stay alive kept me awake when a lot of movies would have left me sleeping at the hour when this film was broadcast.
