James Kim found dead

Searchers have found the body of James Kim, the CNET technical editor who had gone missing in the southwest Oregon wilderness with his wife and two daughters a week and a half ago. His family, who had stayed with their stranded car off the NF-23 route, on Bear Camp Road, was rescued two days ago, but two days before that he had set off for help, and did not find it.

I've driven through those Oregon mountains (in summer) and our own B.C. mountains (year round) often enough, with my wife and two children in our own silver station wagon, so even though I never knew any of the Kim family, I feel ill from the tale.

UPDATE: Here is Gizmodo's list of car emergency supplies and a more extensive PDF booklet on winter survival from the state of Montana—which ought to know.
