What ever happened to living life on the edge and seeking more? Why aren't we taking part in that adventure we dreamed of as a kid? Today's society has lost the love and passion for the great outdoors and small adventures we went on as kids. Real adeventure into the wild is sometimes much more than the instagram photos or the views. It's where we can find our true selves. The problem with our world of technology is the fact that true adventure has been simply forgotten and seen as ancient.
A story that inspired from the start. A young man by the name Chris Mccandless travelled throughout North America living off the barest essentials and for most of his journey, off the land. Unfortunately, his journey came to an end two and half years later when he ate potatoe seeds that grew a deadly mold. His body was found two weeks later in an abandoned Fairbanks City bus on the Stampede Trail in Alaska.
After reading Chris's story and watching the movie Into the Wild that followed the story line of Jon Krakaeur's book of Chris's journey, something about the story connected real close with me. A lot of what the kid experienced growing up was the same in my life. Yes, I have not just disapeared on everyone I know nor do I plan to. After college I do want to take a few months off and go experience as much as I can and create my own Great Adventure. This is my life, my journey, and I will find my adventure. Like Chris said, Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant too attempt.
