Re: when 142 was left behind

My bad...I misread it and thought it was suggesting that this was 142. I would love to see the actual home movie. It now makes me wonder if Steve Tolley (trapper who used the bus back in the 70s & 80s) was misremembering when he told me about bringing out the bed and the stove. Anyway, quite ama...

Re: when 142 was left behind

I'm not saying Mickey Hines's story is not true, but I have my doubts about this being Fairbanks 142. For one thing, the rear windows are all wrong...there should be two windows, not three...I can post an image of the back of the bus if someone could tell me how to attach it (I don't see a way to po...

Re: Dear Wayne, Gail & Son...

I thought, on the one hand, by stating briefly that I had no intention to discuss it I could possibly preempt the inevitable questions I always get about it…while at the same time still hinting that there is more to the Carthage part of this story than meets the eye, and in a way that lets the peopl...

Re: I was on the Stampede Trail twice while Chris was out th

Thanks for the notes on Parker, guys. She's been a real trooper. Regarding your most recent post, Nick, if you need a place to recoop after the Stampede hike, I would recommend the town of Talkeetna, just south of the Denali National Park. Not sure if you remember the show "Northern Exposure&qu...

Thanks for sharing the picture of the Tercel, Erik. In terms of the possibility it was a 4WD Tercel, and other details of that trip, I just recontacted the individual who sent me the original e-mail. I will let the forum know if I hear back from him. I appreciate the note, Nick. Safe travels if you ...

Re: Ron Lamothe documentary available on DVD?

Please see my separate posts in the Discussions on Chris section (topics “I AM INJURED” and “I FEEL LIKE I’M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!”) regarding the more significant inaccuracy claims mentioned above, but I also feel compelled to respond here about the other two—in one case doing a mea culpa, in the oth...

I was on the Stampede Trail twice while Chris was out there

While I am here, and on the subject of Chris McCandless (and on the anniversary date of his death no less), I thought I might as well share with the forum a few new and interesting bits and pieces of the story that I have come across in the years since my documentary was released, or that I haven’t ...

I FEEL LIKE I’M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!

In my recent post about the “I AM INJURED” line in Chris’s S.O.S. note as it pertains to Back to the Wild, I mentioned that I feel a bit like Al Pacino’s character in the Godfather series when he says, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” Well, when it comes to the subject of Hedys...

I AM INJURED, NEAR DEATH, AND TOO WEAK TO HIKE OUT OF HERE.

Though I do feel a bit like Michael Corleone in Godfather III when he says, “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in,” I am compelled to respond to some recent posts about my documentary as it relates to the recent release of Back to the Wild. This may take a little while, and so I apolo...
