    About the Magic ‘Supertramp’ Bus from Into the Wild

So in this blog, I will answer them for you, making the information available for everyone who wants to know more about it. Where to find it, where to find the replica, how the bus got there and why I choose not to go there (what??? yes, you read that right!…)   About the Magic Bus from Into the Wild My first time in Alaska was back in 2007.

So when I seriously injured my ankle only four days before my departure in a cycling accident, I thought that someone up there was trying to tell me something… When doctors at the hospital told me hiking would be a definite “no” for the upcoming weeks, I was incredibly sad. However, I generally don’t take no for an answer and by the time I was about to go hiking, my ankle…
