    The Oregon State Patrol has a press release posted on a Portland local information service, as well as an update with a photo of a silver Saab 900 for illustrative purposes. Also linked from KiloSeven.

    This guy is definitely not of my world; that’s right, SF! Hey, I lived there for 5 years, so I know how that experience can impact negatively rational thought. I’m sorry, but for poor Kim, it’s been one BAD decision after another: first, to travel with spouse and two infant children, overnight, on an old logging road, in the face of snow, ice, etc.; then, AFTER waiting a whole week, he decides reasonable to set out on foot for help, but then he promptly leaves the road, where he almost certainly would have been found, and instead heads into pure wilderness, worse than what he had just left, descending cliffs down into the Rogue River basin, where no one is likely to be for months to come. Can’t we just get sushi in the Castro? High probability this won’t end well for him…
