Winter Wilderness Survival When Stranded With Your Vehicle

By now many people have heard the sad story of James Kim, who became snowbound in his vehicle with his family in southwest Oregon after taking a wrong turn. After being stranded for days, Mr. Kim set out on foot to find the nearest town. While his family was eventually rescued, he was not. His body was recovered after an intense search.

David Cronenwett of Montana’s Wilderness Arts Institute has written an article titled Winter Survival For Motorists aimed at teaching people what they need to know and consider before taking a remote drive in winter.  He covers proper planning, what gear to carry in your vehicle, and points out that simply having a 4×4 vehicle is no guarantee that you won’t get stuck.  It’s a good read whether you’re preparing for a remote drive or not.
