"I think good gets better." - Leonard Knight

Into the Wild was one of those books for me. The one you read at the right moment in time at the right situation in life. It was one of the first times I really paused to ask myself what I was doing with my life. The film version captures a scene with Salvation Mountain and it's creator, Leonard, where he states this quote in the context of living in the desert. It's taken me ten years to get here, but it was worth the wait.
I too believe that good gets better.

Missing that rocky mountain high "you ladies smoke?" "no" "then what the f**k you doing in Colorado?" #wecametoclimb #sportclimbing #rockclimbing #crossedariverforthis #chrismccandless

A year ago today I made it to the beaten up magic bus 142 in Healy Alaska. It was never about the bus for me but more about taking that journey. Chris Mccandless was not someone I ever considered my hero, I just simply admired his mindset. When I made it to the bus I could tell that I was not the only one that admired him. The hundreds of writings on the walls, and journal entries proved that Chris inspired a lot of people to explore and to create their own happiness. It was amazing to see. So live your life and do what makes you happy. Even if that is living in a bus in the Alaskan wilderness. #almostdrownedintheTeklanika #alaska #stampedetrail #magicbus #chrismccandless

Some of the best Vedder & an incredible story. #chrismccandless #nowplaying🎧

Bir gün Alaska'ya gideceğim. Ve senin ayak izlerine karışacak ayak izlerim Alex. Deneyimlerinin ikinci bir ruh olmasını istiyorum bende. Bir gün Alaska'yı senin gözlerinden görecek ve Buck gibi uluyacağım. Duyduğum vahşiliğimin çağrısını bu sefer yanıtsız bırakmayacağım. Bir gün sen olacağım, sen olduğum zaman ilk defa kendim olacağım. Alex, ayak izlerimiz nasılda aynı bak, diyeceğim. Alex. Konuşmamız gerekenler var.
Sevgili Berduşun.

'There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
there is a rapture on the lonely shore;
there is society, where none intrudes,
by the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...' - Lord Byron

" I'm gonna be all the way out there, all the way fucking out there. Just on my own. You know, no fucking watch, no map, no axe, no nothing. No nothing. Just be out there. Just be out there in it. You know, big mountains, rivers, sky, game. Just be out there in it, you know? In the wild." -Christopher McCandless

« C'è tanta gente infelice che tuttavia non prende l'iniziativa di cambiare la propria situazione perché è condizionata dalla sicurezza, dal conformismo, dal tradizionalismo, tutte cose che sembrano assicurare la pace dello spirito, ma in realtà per l'animo avventuroso di un uomo non esiste nulla di più devastante di un futuro certo »
SUPERTRAMP! Into the Wild!

"Seni kendi doğruları ile sündüren ve tek tip olman gerektiğine inandıran Toplum baskisindan kacmak ve kactigin yerde yeni bir toplum yaratmak isterken anlarsın ki; GERÇEK MUTLULUK SADECE PAYLAŞILARAK YAŞANIR, PAYLAŞILDIKÇA ANLAMLANIR..!"

"You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience" #chrismccandless #intothewild #grampians #alonenotlonely #victoria #jonkrakauer

//I'd like to repeat the advice that I gave you before, in that I think you really should 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 to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. 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..." Alexander Supertramp

It's always a profound moment for me when I realize someone has been gone longer than they were on Earth. Today it's been 25 years since Chris McCandless succumbed to the wild, or rather today is one of our best guesses, and his story has been around longer than he was. And despite the negative opinions many have about Chris and his choices, his story to me is one of immense bravery and determination and I admire that so much. He saw the detrimental flaws of society and chose to live life completely on his own terms, made his own rules and appreciated his relationships with those he let into his life. I respect what he tried to do and am so grateful he left a trail for us to follow.

"The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure" -Chris McCandless

25 years ago, the world lost a truly adventurous spirt. His final adventure was in the most beautiful wilderness I've ever experienced. While alaska will always hold a piece of my heart, I aspire to live every day like Chris, no matter where my life may take me.
