Actually, some reports have indicated that he does have *some* outdoor experience.

EDIT: Kati Kim kept the kids, 4 years old and 7 months old, nourished by nursing them over the 8 days. That's pretty badass.

Wow I'm surprised that she was able to breastfeed enough for a 7 month old and a 4 year old for 8 days, not having any nourishment herself. I thought not having food for herself would affect her ability to lactate, but I guess not.

Not really, you can last a LONG time without food, and they could have easily melted snow for water. I have no idea how cold it is over there, (Guessing not -40C like it is here), but it was definitely not a wise choice to go out alone with the limited clothing and equipment he had.

humans can survive around two or three weeks without food...

UPDATE: They just found James' jeans... Lets hope they find him!

Why would he take off his pants in the snow?

Hmmm, I guess he was trying to leave a trail for others to find him? I'm not sure. It seems like leaving behind a whole pair of jeans isn't the brightest idea. Isn't it cold? He needs to be able to stay warm so I would think that something smaller and less significant to him should be left behind instead of a whole pair of jeans.

Jeans are more important than food.

Stage 4 Hypothermia
Paradoxically, the victim may experience a false sensation of warmth and begin to exhibit bizarre and inappropriate behavior such as removing hats, mitts or clothes.
not looking good.

Just watched the live podcast... he didnt leave his own jeans. He left the 2nd pair of gray pants that he took w/ him.

I think that's about right for a healthy adult, but I would not expect a 7 month old or possibly a 4 year old to survive that long without food. Though the story said she fed them by breastfeeding, I find it amazing that the adult female body can continue to lactate without her own food for that long a time.

My wife, who is currently breastfeeding our 6-month old, and I were marveling at this.

Unfortunately, it's a symptom of Hypothermia. The people feel really warm just before they secumb, and take of all their clothes.

um, no... This was a second layer of pants he was wearing, they think he might have left it as a marker

Hasn't anyone ever heard that if you're lost, have no idea where you are, and are in the middle of nowhere, it's best to simply wait for help than to strike out on your own? Particularly when you have such a resource as a car. He should have stayed put with his family.

That being said, I obviously do hope he's ok and that rescuers find him alive.
