The abandoned bus where Christopher McCandless starved to death in 1992 stands on the Stampede Road near Healy, Alaska, in this March 21, 2006, file photo. McCandless, who hiked into the Alaska wilderness in April 1992 and died there in late August 1992, was apparently poisoned by wild seeds that left him unable to fully metabolize what little food he had. Jon Krakauer's book "Into the Wild" and Sean Penn's movie of the same name are causing people from all over the world to retrace McCandless' steps to the 1940s-era International Harvester bus.
