Thanks to the following organizations and businesses for their contributions and ongoing support of our project.
Friends of Bus 142 formed as a direct response to the outpouring of concern about
the future of the bus after its removal from the Stampede Trail. They are dedicated
to that global Into the Wild community, with the blessing & support of many well known
figures from the book, film & music projects.
