Re: If Chris knew he could die why did he continue?

I don't think he went into the wild knowing he was going to die or wanting to do. He did try to come back but the river was too high and fast. I think throughout his whole journey he was doing what he thought he needed to do. He did leave his family behind and clueless for years. I think we can all ...

Re: I'm getting an into the wild tattoo, quote suggestions?

"Make each day a new horizon" I like this quote because he says to make each day a new one. Start over everyday. Whatever worried you the day before, forget about it. Each day is a new one. A clean slate.

Re: Chris' Name Change

He changed his name to get away from civilization to show what he loved, and to make sure no one that wanted to find him could. He wanted to be by himself and independent from everybody. He wanted to be able to go out and do what he enjoyed and do his own thing.

Re: Would you do what Chris did?

I would not go as extreme as he did. I might travel around the country, but i wouldn't try to go to Alaska and live off the land. I am not that brave.

Re: What if Chris lived through the wild?

I think he would have came home a changed man. I have no doubt all of his experiences would have changed many things in his life. He would have came home and I dont think he would like it back in civilization and not constantly moving around. He definitely think he would have left again and went out...

Re: Why give away his money?

Why would he burn money and then work for money and not burn it ? To me it seems like a waste of time and money that he reely needed.Also I understand why he burned it but then he still works for money ? I just don't understand. Maybe he did it to replenish his supplies? I personally do not know th...

Re: What do you think about Chris going into the wild?

I feel like he was trying to prove to himself he didn't need all those things to live out and off of the land. I also think he was trying to live the transcendentalist lifestyle that Henry David Thoreau lived and wrote about.

Re: Do you think Chris McCandless had a destination after bu

If he had another destination he wouldn't have stayed at the bus for more than a month. I feel like he wanted to know what it was like to live off the land in a "secluded" area for a while. I personally don't think a month is long enough it's self to get the full effect. Plus, he was enjo...
