    Guys: do you know of any hunters cabins or huts that James Kim could have sought shelter in up there? You know the area, or know someone who might know. Ask around. It’s a long shot but Might be worth a try.

    Keep them fingers crossed!

    Joe, My sons and I are avid hunters and we know the Big Wendy Creek area very well. It is a shame he did not go up river or back on the County Line Road (That is the name of the road he was on) because he is only within 1-2 miles from Black Bar Lodge. I also think he is down on the river going I hope up river but more than likely down river. Your assesments that I have read so far are very accurate. Bob Hollenbeck
    PS How do you know the area so well?

    Thanks Bob –

    If you or sons have more thoughts I’d urge you to post them over at I think it would help searchers to have a feel from people who know that area well, and as I said my gut tells me he’s made it out of the drainage by now.

    I’m not an expert on that area though I have rafted the wild section a couple of times and have driven that full route once and various parts of it many times. I was one of the early online tourism guys for Southern Oregon.

    Awesome coverage of the Kim family! Great website and thanks for the ease of use navigating from the news reports and maps etc. Keep up the good work in helping find the missing dad! From Stanton Michigan

    Joe, I know at the end of County Line road it swings back up and goes back towards the main road system. At the end of County Line Road the road still goes down and follows the river. The road is closed due to a big slide that washed out the road. But way down the road I would guess 1-2 miles there is an old cabin site that has a few apple trees still on it. The cabin is gone. The story I was told years ago that a convict lived there back in the 30s or 40s. There still might be some apples on the trees for food. I know way down there that is a long shot, but you never know. Bob Hollenbeck

    You drive down I-5 towards Ashland and you see flashing lights Chains Required when lights flashing. Why can’t the state of Oregon put the same thing at the base of Galice Road and one at Gold Beach saying Closed over the pass due to high snow when lights flashing???????? Bob Hollenbeck

    Joe, Your new photo is exactly where the car was. I know this because of the photo taken from the helecoptor showing the car sitting. It shows the horseshoe bend. If anybody wants to know, the name of that road is Countly Line Road.

  16. Danielle says:

    So I was wondering if authorities ever recovered the missing climbers of Brian Hall and Jerry “Nikko” Cooke on Mount Hood, ORegon? My father was killed 5 years ago on the same mountain. My heart goes out to the three families of these courageous men.
    Please let me know.
