Dermot Cole of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner passes along news from a South Dakota television station that the parents of Chris McCandless have completed a visit to the wrecked bus near Healy where their son died in an effort to live in complete solitude. McCandless's parents were part of a group of about 20 people who visited the site to honor him this March, and are helping promote a new book and DVD presenting a new account of the story.
