Update: The Kims Used a Paper Map
As I noted in an update to my earlier post, the body of James Kim was found yesterday. But online maps or GPS navigation systems cannot be blamed for the Kim tragedy, as some have surmised (based on little more than James Kim’s techy occupation): the San Francisco Chronicle reports that they used a paper map. Indeed Bear Camp Road’s winter status is not always mentioned on paper maps: Mathew Ingram; Medford Mail Tribune. No mapping method has a monopoly on accuracy or error. Via Google Maps Mania.
