In that case, do you know the Bus 142, in which Christopher McCandless after 114 days, died at the age of just 24 years. It was recently moved, as many risked their lives to reach the famous bus. Now, it seems that the bus, which in 60 years has stood in Denali National Park in Alaska, will soon have a new home.
The iconic bus of the day had been a popular, but dangerous attraction. Naturdepartementet and the Alaska national guard selected for the 18. June to remove it. Fans and tourists put life and limb at stake in the attempt to find it, and it has through the years resulted in two deaths and several rescue operations.
the Move was therefore a relief for the Denalis mayor, Clay Walker, but also a bittersweet farewell, writes Ritzau. Now is the end with the big bail-outs and injuries, but also with the authentic history. The mayor may, however, rejoice that the story lives on, just under more civilized circumstances.
