... the 5 dollar one of course and hopped in. Turns out it just took us to the base of the usual exit of the mountain..but that was ok! It was a cool twist of events.

Eventually I found a highway and followed it back to Iksan on the service roads beside it. In retrospect, it was kind of a bad idea, but at least I got to sleep in my own bed.
