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

Into-The-Wild.jpg

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?

i'd like to see everywhere if i could. shit, something as simple as Niagara falls would be fun or going to a grocery store i've never been to is fun for me because i'm such a creature of habit. i'd like to travel all of America (skipping sundown towns and blatantly racist places). I'd love to go Denmark or something too.
I'm glad they are moving it. Hopefully people won't try to trek out to the former location.

I'd like to visit so many places.

Us: I want to visit the small town in Alabama my dad's father is from again. I'd like to do a tour of black history sites through the deep south. Hawaii and VT (in the fall) DC and do a museum tour when it's safe again

International: Rwanda, Peru, Lesotho, South Korea, Iceland. I also would love to go from Russia to China on the Trans-Siberian railway
I would looove to ride the Trans-Siberian railway
I was supposed to go to South Africa and Tanzania this year. I really want to go on a safari and see elephants!!

GREEEEEEECE. I want to see all the old ruins!
i would LOVE to go to greece. i blame sisterhood of the travelling pants tbh
I've just rewatched the first one today. It's so beautiful in Santorini. I've been there two years ago, sadly overtourism is forcing Greek people out and that took something away for me. But nevertheless the most beautiful place I've ever been to.
I am also thinking of doing a train trip like the Trans-Siberian Railway then connect to China and do a trip on the high-speed and maglev trains, then connect to Vietnam or Cambodia. I love the possibilities.
I'd love to visit Sri Lanka and India (on my own terms). I haven't been to India in almost 15 years and I want to see my grandparents' house with their amazing fruit trees and garden.

I really want to visit New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, Mongolia, Georgia, Mexico and Chile. I'd also like to travel in central Europe more. And then just visit London as much as I can and Iceland, too. But I've come to appreciate traveling in my own country a lot more the older I've gotten, I'm in Finland so there's so much beautiful nature and different kind of areas to explore.
Mexico City is so beautiful. You definitely have to go!!
I want to go to Norway too. And Switzerland. The hiking looks amazing.
Places I've been before that I want to revisit:

NYC (been there as a pre-teen with my family, but like we didn't even go to the Met or MOMA???? smh)

Washington DC (we also didn't visit the National Gallery. how could my parents do this to me???)

London (lol used to live there and I just miss it)

Paris (been there a few times, but there are STILL things I want to see!)

Amsterdam (I want to spend more time at the Rijksmuseum)

Madrid (again just want to send more time at the Prado)

Switzerland (want to revist the Lucern valley and just like see the Matterhorn)

Granada in Spain (the Alhambra was one of my favorite places I've ever visited)

Grand Canyon (was there for like 3 hours a couple of years ago before my sister FELL AND BROKE HER ANKLE SO WE DIDN'T GET TO SEE MUCH)

the American southwest in general like Carlsbad caverns and shit. I'm just in a very "wanting to see desert things" kind of mood.

Places I haven't been yet that I want to visit:

Greece - as mentioned in the previous comment just want to see cool historical ruins!

Scandinavia - Norway, Sweden, Denmark etc. Just looks v pretty and I haven't been there!

rural China - Ok I haven't done enough research to specify where, but ever since I saw The Painted Veil a million years ago, I've been obsessed with that scenery

Morocco - V interested in the architecture

Egypt - WANNA SEE ALL THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ARTIFACTS

just more of Spain in general like Toledo and Seville


... that's a lot. CAN YOU TELL I'M DESPERATE TO TRAVEL AGAIN?
I loved Switzerland. We went to Lucerne which was lovely.
It was so pretty! We spent like 2 days total in Switzerland and it was not enough for me! Which is why I want to go back!
China has so many underrated cities: Xi'an, Chongqing, Harbin, Chengdu, Xiamen, Hohhot. I'd love to see the Terracotta Army, so much Ming dynasty porcelain, calligraphy, Peking opera.
Ugh The Painted Veil had the same impact on me, I was just like THIS!!! LANDSCAPE!!!

Abu Simbel in Egypt is one of the most insanely impressive things I've ever seen.
I'd like to go back to Scotland or for the first time visit Germany, Iceland, or Japan
I've been to Scotland and Germany. I want to go to Japan and Iceland.
Cooperstown, plus I want to hit up Wrigley one more time before I go, and there's a few ballparks I'd like to see (Camden Yards, PNC Park, Coors Field), and some artists I'd like to see (Vienna Teng, The Amazing Devil, Taylor.

I have to be realistic, though, travel is rough on me and I have to restrict myself to places with good disabled accommodations. I'd like to visit Montreal, too, because it's where my father is from.
Don't go to Montreal in the winter! I went with my friend who was on crutches/her wheelchair (couldn't get her prosthetic on after surgery for a bit) and she found the city infuriating. I imagine it's much better in any other season for that reason alone, and it really is a great city. Just not as disability friendly as Boston/the US.
thanks for the good info! I usually use a walker to get around. I have some family I've never met still in Montreal so I'd like to meet them. My father's family left because of anti-Francophone discrimination and thought America would provide a better life. One generation later, America is an absolute hellscape, ugh.

There are so many places I want to see. When I win the lottery I'm going on a trip around the world.
we were supposed to go to spain for our honeymoon but we obviously pushed that off for a while lol, maybe an anniversary trip once shit is somewhat safe (and people want US visitors again)
The Centralia graffity highway also had to be covered because of idiots.
