Christopher McCandless — American Explorer born on December 30, 1968, died on December 30, 1992

Christopher Johnson "Chris" McCandless was an American hiker. He ventured into the Alaskan wilderness in April 1992 with little food and equipment, hoping to live simply for a time in solitude. Almost four months later, McCandless' starved remains were found, weighing only 30 kilograms. His death occurred in a converted bus used as a backcountry shelter, along the Stampede Trail on the eastern bank of the Sushana River... (wikipedia)

The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.
Tramping is too easy with all this money. My days were more exciting when I was penniless and had to forage around for my next meal... I've decided that I'm going to live this life for some time to come. The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up.
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
I don't want to know what time it is. I don't want to know what day it is or where I am. None of that matters.
It is the experiences, the great triumphant joy of living to the fullest extent in which real meaning is found. God it's great to be alive!
