Nice teaser that the media put out. Zero info about what he had for survival equipment and there had to be heavy clothing at least if not a sleeping bag or blankets. No way he would survive -30 in a car otherwise. "at least two months without food" that is a stretch in those temperatures.
Hmmm, just searched and there is more to the story.......

Well, the woman from Penticton did survive for 49 days last winter in Nevada without food............who thought that was possible?

In both cases the actual length of time without food was fuzzy because there was some food, i am not demeaning the ordeal, just saying that the media loves to leave out info to catch your attention.
The Penticton woman's ordeal did not include temperatures of -30 and she had water. Eating snow significantly decreases your body core temperature. When i searched i found that the Swede did indeed have warm clothing and a sleeping bag, along with there being evidence of much more food that originally stated.

They should search around the area where the car was. He probably buried the wrappers of the
six cases of Swedish Mars Bars in the snow somewhere. He'll get a book out of this...maybe a
movie as well.....

I'm thinking of two months worth of human waste to deal with. Even
with little food and snow/ice for liquid, with metabolic systems still
in effect.....I don't know how closely I'd want to paw around where
that car was myself.

I'm thinking of using snow as TP-ouch!

Considering how he was very near death, I sincerely doubt he planned this ahead of time.
