So sad, but I think we all knew it would come to this.

Oh man. I've been hoping that they would find that guy alive. I feel so bad for his wife and children... ugh.

Growing up here in Oregon they always told us... If you ever get lost, hug a tree. It's a very unfortunate story but I can't help but think his death was completely avoidable.

see - that sorta makes sense to me - I was wondering why he thought odds would be better if he left his family. Now they were rescued and he's died.

I think his actions were heroic - he was doing what he could to save his family - but by separating himself from a shelter I feel like he lowered his chances of survival significantly.

Poor guy. His poor family...

This is unfortunate news, but I didn't have high hopes for his survival.

What I do hope comes of this is that people travelling far away and in areas they know are remote (esp. with young kids), be fucking prepared and have a charged up cell phone, flares, blankets, water/food, just just in case of emergencies.

It makes no sense that they had none of this and he died while trying to find help.

Aw, crap! I was so hoping for a better outcome to this story. I've always enjoyed Mr. Kim's reviews on the C|Net program that downloads to my TiVo on a regular basis.

My heart goes out for his wife and kids....

This story really moved me, and I have been watching updates as this case progressed. I was so sad to hear this, but when they did not find him within 24 hours of finding his wife and daughters, I did start to expect the worst.

So sad...

Just this morning I was hoping he'd be found okay but figured he was most likely dead.

That was a sad ending to this story. We had been taught to not leave the car that your chances of survival were higher if you stayed put.

Larry has to travel quite a distance to work so he has a survival kit in the car. He's on well traveled highways but last weeks snowstorm he had to take an alternate route due to a semi crash and the snow was blowing so bad it was white out conditons. That's when those emergency things come in handy.

We always have him call when he gets to work and when he leaves and we know which route he takes so if he gets stranded we can get him help.

I do feel so sorry for his family. What a tragedy.
