Bus In the Middle of the Woods

Just a few miles from the Jamison’s Corners church is this old bus sitting in the middle of the woods. It sits just along the property line of Oil Creek State Park, in northwestern Pennsylvania. Oil Creek State Park is more famous for its dozens of vanished oil boom towns, but in more recent years, the area has become popular among outdoor enthusiasts, particularly hunters. Apparently, some resourceful individuals figured out a way to get an old retired bus into the woods and use it as their little hunting camp. Local lore indicates that the bus has been there since at least 1948, and that the fellows who put it there had some quite enjoyable times together that included poker and moonshine, and that during those evenings of camaraderie, their boisterous voices could be heard up and down the valley into the wee hours of the morning.
