Not only did the boys get the Van running by jump starting it by pushing it down a hill, they found Dharma Beer and listened to Shambala. Along with the dead body of Roger (Ben’s Father), 8 track tapes, and a road map were found. Hope sprang eternal for the Lost Men with some 20 old Dharma suds and a joyride.

Sawyer: Skeletor seems to like it. Bottoms up! [clinks can on corpses head]
