Re: Was Chris a hero or a fool?

Firstwave50, I'd like to suggest you read the book. The movie was great, but, it's the somewhat Hollywood version of Chris' story. You'll get a better idea of just how well Chris was prepared. This was not his first trip to Alaska. He had a gun. And NO ONE hikes with cables to cross rivers in their ...

Happy 49th Birthday "Super Tramp"

Well, today (February 12th) marks what would have been Chris' 49th birthday. So, Happy Birthday Christopher McCandless wherever you may roam. ~Today, during a visit to a bookstore somewhere near the ocean, I happened to look across an isle among the many. For no good reason, there among all the busy...

Chapter 8 "A Return To The Beginning" 

This part of the river was a monster. I wanted to retrace my steps but, at the same time I could not think of a spot along the trail that would have steered me the wrong direction. Thoughts were flooding my head as I kept a blank stare upon the thras...

Chapter 7 "The Sky Was Blue With A Violet Hue"

 I stood there and I couldn't move until it all sank in completely. The beams of sunlight that had broke through the clouds just a few minutes earlier, were smothered once again by the ever growing clouds above. The rain began to come down ha...

Chapter 6 "Arrival" 
The rain continued in light and heavy patterns and before long I was no longer paying it any mind. My attention switched once more to the trail and it's next stretch. The trail started to climb and climb significantly. The front of my feet were starting to drag along a...

Re: Does anyone else know what's inside the old coffee can?

Ok, I made everyone wait 5 years so that it didn't draw unnecessary and unwanted visitors. Inside a big red Folgers? coffee can was a huge bag of weed. It was hilarious and I left it alone and put it carefully back where I found it. The coffee can was long gone when I went back to the bus years late...

My 2010 Stampede Story...

Once upon a time, somewhere around 5 years ago, I wrote a short story of my Stampede hike to the bus that was the first to be featured here on this website. I later asked the person who created this website to delete it for personal reasons that I didn't care to share. I've decided to re-post the st...

Re: Eddie Vedder soundtrack

Oh and hey, it's especially delicious on vinyl as well. You should get yourself a copy. It's on Amazon from time to time.
