Thanks, I need to go find a copy this weekend since I don't have a subscription anymore. I've been waiting to read Brandon's article for a long time now.

The details about the new issue are up on the Star Wars website now. You can even preview the digital copy of this months issue at Zinio. They only let you zoom in 3 times for the preview but Brandon's article is on 3 pages so it works out perfectly.

I wasn't aware he'd written it until I happened upon it in the magazine. It was an interesting article, but I enjoyed your travelog and photos more. The photos in the magazine aren't readily recognizable as filming locations. In fact, they look like they could have been taken in just about any similar forest.

Yea, the logging that was done in that area certainly ruined it for keeping it recognizable. It would still be nice to go back someday but we need to get more details about how to get there since the article doesn't go into that.

I e-mailed Brandon Alinger to ask him for the GPS coordinates, though I got no reply. Using the map shown in the article and doing some Google Earth investigating it looks like the Bunker is at approximately 4154'22.95"N, 124 7'29.08"W. The locations appear to be off of Morrison Creek Road, which is about 1.5 miles south of the town of Smith River. If you look on the far left of the map on the bottom of the third page of the article, you can see where the road to the site crosses Morrison Creek. Some of the roads near the Bunker site are either too covered by the canopy or are no longer there, but the main road into the site matches up well. I've got comparison shots of the area from a Google Earth map and the article map showing the place markers.

I got my copy just before Christmas, it was very well written without it handing out the location on a plate. I think a little legwork would be involved but the reward should be worth it - the place should be quickly found.
I did the same Google Earth vs. article comparison.
