James Kim from Oregon

For any of you that have been following this story, Kim and his wife and two children were stranded in the woods during a family trip to Oregon. Kim left to get help, his wife stayed in the car with their 4 year old and 7 month old children. The wife breast fed both children for a week in the car, while waiting for help or her husband to return.

What a horribly sad story. I'm glad the mom and kids survived.

Everyone, it's getting cold out there, so if your venturing out in the wilderness, or just taking a ride in the cold temps...be prepared! Get some life saving things in your trunk and glove box, especially if you have children with you.

Energy bars, flares, or a flash light that keeps blinking, thermal blanket that is orange on the outside so people can see you and silver on the inside to radiate heat towards your body if your stranded, matches. In the case of these people, they were able to scratch out in the dirt " SOS", "out of gas" which definately helped, and she had a cell phone which was able to be detected from a tower.

I was afraid that would be the outcome when I first heard the story the other day. That is incredibly sad.

I've been following this story since the first time I heard it. What a guy!!! They had also said that where the car was parked, it was awful hard to see, that an umbrella clued them in to where the car was.
