    Were I to be appointed King in Charge of Everything in the Area, I would haul that bus out of the woods and chop it up for scrap. It's starting to remind me of Stephen King's "Christine."

    If my memory is correct, I had to hike 3-4 miles to get there. Perhaps there is something like a forest service-type road that they use for resupply, but if so, I didn't see one.
