Wreck from a cult US film
From the film “Into the Wild”: Alaska’s most famous bus is said to come to the museum
The vehicle is actually a wreck: a rusty, discarded bus. But the vehicle became known through the fate of “Into the Wild” dropout Christopher McCandless and the filming of the material. Now the “Magic Bus” should have a weatherproof future.
Will he park protected in the dry soon? The discarded bus of the “Into the Wild” dropout Christopher McCandless. The agency for natural resources and the environment said that negotiations are underway with the Museum of the North of the University of Alaska in the city of Fairbanks.
The Alaska authorities removed the bus from the wilderness on Stampede Trail near Denali National Park in mid-June. The vehicle, nicknamed “Magic Bus”, had repeatedly attracted hikers and adventurers, sometimes with fatal consequences. Two people have died in raging rivers since 2010 alone.
The bus from the 1940s, which temporarily served as a temporary shelter for construction workers, became known in 1996 through the Jon Krakauer novel “Into the Wild”. Oscar winner Sean Penn filmed the book in 2007 with Emile Hirsch in the leading role of the young US dropout, who lived in the bus in the middle of the wilderness for 114 days according to diary records.
Lean and debilitated, 24-year-old McCandless may have been weakened by the consumption of poisonous seeds. His body was found on the bus in September 1992.
