Into the Wild

One of the most famous stories about Alaska is the story of Chris McCandless and both a book and a movie were written about his story. The bus in which Chris died has been moved from its remote location in the woods to the 49th State Brewing Company in Denali Park. A young woman died while trying to hike to the bus and the owners of the 49th State Brewing Company decided that something had to be done. Admission is free.

I will be spending the next couple of day preparing for my ride to Prudhoe Bay.

    You do know this isn’t the actual bus Chris died in. This is the movie bus from the movie “Into the wild.” The real bus is still in the same location on the stampede trail to this day. It hasn’t been moved.
