The "Into the Wild" Bus Will Be Moved to A Museum


The bus made famous by the book "Into the Wild" and the film of the same name will be moved to a museum. The bus is the death site of Christopher McCandless, a nomadic 24-year-old who starved there in 1992.

Since then, many travelers have made a pilgrimage to the bus, even though it is incredibly dangerous to get to and Alaskan authorities discourage it. Three people have died trying to get there. The state frequently has to send rescue missions to save dumbasses hikers who get trapped near it.

Officials will transfer the bus to a museum in Fairbanks, AK.

Assuming this fucking pandemic ever ends, where do you want to see before you die, ONTD?

there's a Fairbanks in Alabama? unless you meant Alaska (Alaska's abbreviation is AK, not AL)
Lol whoops!
lol no worries, only my nerdy ass noticed it hahaha
haha i was wondering why they were going to AL which is so far away!
i have a q! why do people die trying to get there? is it a dangerous path? is there no path at all?
It's really really rough terrain/woods and I think a river is known to flood (winter melt) and cause either drowning or stranding people in the woods if they can't get across it.
To get there, you have to ford a river. It can be unexpectedly dangerous, especially when the water is high.

There was a longer, safer trail to the bus, but people want to take the actual path that Christopher took.
It’s crossing the Teklanika river that makes it so dangerous. The water levels vary throughout the year, but even when the water level is low it’s still fast and strong.

McCandless had tried to leave the bus and return to the nearby town at one point, but had to abandon that idea once he got to the river and saw how strong the river had become since he crossed it in the early spring.
I gotta see the Great Barrier Reef before it's totally destroyed.
At this point, I’d like to see the inside of a movie theater one more time before I die
what movie would you see?
could be new or an old fave
I’ll take anything lol

To be fair, you’ll probably be able to soon, but “before you die” could take on a whole new meaning!
New Zealand. It just looks like the most beautiful country to me.
I went for my honeymoon and it was honestly amazing and such a variety of things to see. If you ever make it, definitely do a glacier hike. It was the coolest part of our trip and we hiked Milford trek and rode horses in glenorchy where they filmed parts of lotr.
That sounds beautiful!
I live here in Christchurch, in a little cottage two blocks from the beach. I moved from the US and don't regret it for a second. This country is amazing.







i miss museums and exhibitions a lot, face masks are gonna be mandatory in them soon for the uk so i think i’ll go back to my local one then

i’m very into cinema so i always want to go to places where certain movies were filmed or based on
I want to see the other Pacific islands. I already live in this Pacific Ocean, might as well see the others before they get buried in water. I also want to experience Asian winters so either Hokkaido, Siberia, Mongolia, Harbin.

I would love to see Central Asia, the Caucasus, Cuba, and Latin America in general. I also want to see the Iguazu because I saw it on the movie Happy Together so I made it my goal to go to Buenos Aires.
i really want to visit mongolia, too, but those winters look vicious
I’m really lucky and have traveled a ton and seen so much. Still on my bucket list is Argentina and the Maldives. Also now that I have a kid there are a lot of places I’m excited to show her for the first time.
I really want to go to Paris, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen

I used to really want to go to Australia but it’s just such a long plane ride and also so hot and also the scary animals

I’d love to go back to Seoul some day
I went to Australia in their fall (May) and the weather was great. Sydney was cool and rainy but Port Douglas (where we stayed to see the reef) was nice and warm.
Oh God I can’t believe I’m admitting this.

We play up the scary animals. It’s not that bad. Please come, long ass trip and all! It’s definitly worth it.
if you ever make the long trip out, maybe aim for Tasmania? Super beautiful and it has less of the scary animals and more of the cute ones and has milder weather.
I would have never thought of that! I’ll have to google some travel ideas for Tasmania

Lmao same, I don’t want to fly like 20 hours just to get jump-scared by those bigass spiders when I land.
I would love to make it back to Kyoto. I miss Japan so much.

But also fuck Emile Hirsch (who played Christopher McCandless) It's so disappointing how he still has a career after drunkenly attacking a woman at Sundance. Also I had to block him on instagram (we both followed many of the same accounts) because that fucker is the worst reply guy and would comment inanely on everything all day long.
kyoto is soooo amazing. i always tells people to just go to kyoto lol. i think its really what people imagine when they think JAPAN. i've been to osaka (and the outskirts of tokyo to go to disneyland) and its nice but it mostly just felt like a normal city.
Japan was incredible. I miss Tokyo and Kyoto was soooo beautiful. I want to go back and spend time in Hokkaido.
I never made it up there! The farthest I got was Niigata which was majestic.

same here; i want to go back to japan so bad. i did not spend nearly enough time in kyoto and the amount of time i spent in osaka (read: 8 hrs) was disrespectful.

i want to head up to nagano and check out the mountains and onsen. couldn't fit in a visit when i was in the country. i also want to visit okinawa and the smaller islands south of it.

the last post got me interested in the story of the bus. that's fucked up how he died and he was soooo young and just graduated.
i want to do a everest base trip. don't need to climb it, just want to see it.
Me too. That’s all I need to see.
I have zero interest in trekking, but I was lucky enough to see the Himalayas (from a distance) in Nepal and even then, they are absolutely incredible.
Base camp is really cool. It's not that difficult as long as you.can live without showering. But it's surreal looking and the khumbu glacier.
Before I broke up with my bf I wanted to do a road trip in Florida. Visit the Kennedy Space Center and drive till New Orleans. For one it’s a good thing that we broke up because Corona would have destroyed that trip.
Off the top of my head... Niagara Falls, Hawaii, the Great Pyramids, Greece, Netherlands, and Tasmania for the Southern Lights.
I really want to see the wonders of the world. I've seen the colosseum, Chichén Itzá, and the Grand Canyon.
If you ever go to Niagara Falls, def stay on the Canadian side. The US side is a ghost town these days. You can walk over the bridge to do the US side stuff.
re: hawaii -- if you end up in kona-kailua, rent a car. you need to rent a car. you'll thank me later.

I wanna go to Iceland soooo bad. And Greece too.

Oh, and Egypt. I want to see the Pyramids. People underestimate how amazing their existence is. They’re the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World to still exist, and they’re the oldest one at that. Purely amazing.
yeah i would LOVE to see the pyramids. my grandparents did a whole world trip after they retired but they were never able to go to egypt because there were travel advisories but they really regret not going. they went to every continent but seeing the pyramids is something they always wanted to do but never got to and i don't want to have the same regret!
I went with my family right after I finished school and it was honestly the best trip, they are immense
I have so many friends who've been to Iceland, it's really close ride from where I am but I've never been.
