I want to remember it as Chris saw it. Your post reminded me of why the Unabomber set his bombs, he hated our plastic society and like Chris hiked into the woods to escape, but the further he got into the woods he saw ever more trash and remnants of modern society, and eventually he couldn't take anymore. That doesn't justify killing, but it at least helps one understand why some people are so angry at modern civilization, because humans leave indestructible plastic trash everywhere they go and there's no way to break any of this stuff down naturally. Some scientists have theorized that a few million years from now, long after we humans are gone, that nature will finally figure out a way to "digest" plastic trash. Can you imagine our plastic food containers being here in a million years? It's disgusting! Humans have killed Our Mother, and one has to wonder when she'll kill us back.

This one is situated at about the point where the road building stopped, apparently. I never said that "the bus is Chris's". I'm sorry that Ascetic insulted you but you don't have to go all medieval on all of us because of it. Alaska is full of people wanting to live off the land. That's not the point, however. As I've posted, the point isn't that Chris went off into the wilderness and died a lonely death, it's what he did in the Lower 48 that really resonates. If you have an issue with Ascetic take it up with him please.
