Lost in the Wild

"No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild"  from into the wild, the story of how Christopher Mccandless lost his way in the wilds. 

Oversleeping on a Sunday morning, I stumbled upon a story that both fascinates and intrigues my imagination. Was Chris foolhardy or wise, full of hubris or enviable guts? We will never really know. So you be the judge. I find some of his epiphanies parallel mine though I'm not about to launch into a solo trip to the bush anytime soon. Now, if only I can find a DVD of the movie by Sean Penn or better yet, a copy of the book by Jon Krakauer. Read the article in Outside Magazine

I didn't saw the movie but the storyline is very interesting... I almost understand the motivation of Christopher!

i can relate to that sidney. while what he did seemed foolhardy to most people, i can almost understand and relate to the reason why he did what he did. i guess it's getting out of touch with civilization and in touch with our primal self that we lost a long time ago.
