This is a great little video:


Of all the things you could wonder about in it, like why? for one, I wonder most about the dude who drove that van up into the forest that far, 40 years ago.

On the run? Camping with his chick? Off on a bender? And how long was he with the van after the motor died before he yanked it and ran it into town for repairs?

And how come he never came back? Did he die? Get arrested? Gave up and got a job?


So many questions...
