Authorities are still trying to figure out why an Oregon man stayed in his stranded truck for 68 days, and eventually dying, rather than walking the three miles to a road and possible help. A published reports states that Thursday, U.S. Forest Crews found the body of Jerry William McDonald, 68, in a sleeping bag in the back of his GMC pick up, about 60 miles east of Salem.   They found a calendar with enteries for each day from February seventh until April 15th, when the entries stopped. Although McDonald is listed as a "transient", his truck is registered in Unity, Oregon.  He was estranged from his family and no one has reported him missing.
