    Wow!


    They've talked about removing it for years.

    Too many hikers getting stranded/rescued.

      Have it muted, so I cannot speak on the commentary if there is any:



      I'm surprised the thing held up. I thought for sure it'd collapse and fall apart.

      I'm kind of curious how that thing even got out there.

      I recall a pirate member going there and putting a bunch of rounds through it. Kind of shitty.

        Somehow I doubt that will stop the pilgrimage. But the "officials" can feel good about doing something.

          Watch the airlift footage without sound, and imagine the lyrics of "The Wheels on the Bus" to the tune of "Ride of the Valkyrie"

              I’m torn here. I’m sad that the authorities would make a step to save lives of people dumb enough to go die out there. But I’m happy for the locals who don’t want those morons dying in their neck of the woods.

              FWIWDusty from pirate had made a thread about the bus. Going to it, putting canned food in it, signing the guest book. It was a cool thread but he deleted it because glorifying the destination was bringing unwanted attention from idiots. Who ironically knew exactly how Chris got into the situation that ultimately cost him his life, and with all the warning in the world would still go up there getting in the same jam Chris did.

                Chris was a city boy from El Segundo. He was an idiot that bit off more then he could chew. He was in way over his head.

                  I'm 50/50 on it too. Neat story. Just to say fuggit and walk off. But yea, he was an idiot out of his element.

                  I was always under the impression that Chris went there knowing he was going to die. Almost as a suicide. Buddy is telling me that is not the case and he tried returning home but couldn't cross the river.

                    What are they going to do with it?

                    It was definitely on my list of places to go see. I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

                    What a bummer.

                      We will never know, all he left was those few rolls of film that were developed after he was gone.
                      Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

                        Glad it's out. Less trash in the woods the better.

                              I'd say he did pretty good, surviving over 100 days with not many supplies. I don't think most people now days could survive 10 days. I guess we'll really never know, but I think I agree with the "poison seeds" or disease, something that he wasn't aware of that got him.
