Man, I know the experience. White-outs are no joke. Was hunting in Eastern Washington with a few people in the snow (looking for chucker/partridge), and we got into whiteout conditions. Eventually, three of us got out of the truck and walked with one hand on the hood, and one hand in front of us, as we inched forward at about 2 MPH.

The vertigo/disorientation is the strangest sensation... like you are standing on a platform with a gimbal, and it tilts any direction away from you at random...

Definitely makes you realize the limits of our human senses.
