Ever since I watched Into the Wild I've been wondering the same thing. I hope someone has an answer!

haha. i actually didn't realise it was the same place from the movie until i started looking for more info about it. i've read some good stories but most are a few years old so i wonder if it's still the same nowadays. definitely sounds like an interesting place though...

There was a write up on it in this month's National Geographic Traveler. Can't seem to find a link to an online article though...

I do have the print version, but no scanner. If you really want it, private message me your address and I'll rip out the pages and mail them to you.

ah man that's a really nice offer but i don't know if i want it badly enough to make you go through that trouble!
do you have a semi-decent digital camera? i've used one as an alternative to a scanner before and it worked quite well...
