 “Josephine County Undersheriff Brian Anderson said James Kim had walked up to eight miles in “tremendously rugged terrain,” dressed only in tennis sneakers, pants, shirt and a medium-weight parka.He walked a circuitous route up the road he had driven in on in the middle of the night but apparently abandoned that strategy and began climbing downhill. His body was found a little more than a mile from the parked car.”

James was a product reviewer at CNET and had built a fan following over the years based on the information he dished out about mp3 players and other products.

    James Kim the Cnet magazine editor who perished recently near Grant’s Pass Oregon was known
    as the gadget guru. Too bad for him he was not versed with gadgets such as aportable ham radio or a gps
    handheld unit. As you see below there is an open access repeaterin the Grant’s Pass area
    he could have used to call for help

    Similar and unfortunate situations may occur in our nearby East Tn. wilderness because of lack of interest
    in radio and communications training

  3. There’s this article that says that James made a fatal decision by trusting Google maps at Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Kim. Read the section titiled “Map and route controversy.”

    Mathew Wingram has a post that asks people not to blame Google for Kim’s death. http://www.mathewingram.com/work/2006/12/06/dont-blame-google-maps-for-kims-death/
