Happy 49th Birthday "Super Tramp"

Postby SteveSalmon » Mon Feb 13, 2017 4:23 am

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 busyness of titles and covers of books shone the front cover of Carine's book, 'The Wild Truth'. Appearing to be somehow lit a bit brighter than the rest, it sat with it's cover a third of the way open as if it was asking politely to be read.
It was as if I was being led to it for some silly reason. It was so odd, I had to send a picture text to a friend and share the moment. Then it dawned on me hours later. It's Chris' birthday.

Thanks for the chapter of my life I shall never forget my friend I've never met. Thank you also for your help in leading me to the people and places you helped me find. Especially that Magic Bus numbered 142. Perhaps visit #3 will happen in the near future.
