The “Into the Wild” bus has claimed another life. People have been hurt and now died trying to get to it up by Healy.

How about if the state of Alaska just pays to move it to a junkyard in Fairbanks or Nenana or perhaps destroys it on the spot? That would stop having to rescue people who misjudged the difficulty of getting to the infamous bus and will very likely save another life.
