I've decided I'm just going to live this life for sometime to come. The freedom and simple beauty is just too good to pass up. ~

"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.

Happy birthday, Chris. I love you.

I don't know how to thank you for everything you've been to me. Everytime I read or watch something about your life, people think of me as a person who would someday leave everything and run into the wild. Well, I don't expect them to understand your life or mine because I know no one does. I know it must have been so hard for you to stay in a society which never really understands anyone or tries to do the same. I know it was not your choice in first place to leave. A lot of things pushed you into taking that one step which changed your life in many ways. And, no matter how many times I would cry over your tragic death, I would still proudly say that "He truely lived only after he left". I know you're still here, beating inside so many hearts which learn from you how important it is to live once before you die

Sometimes I also feel that the people who follow your steps, only follow your steps and not your mind. What you did was something brave because it gave you the air of happiness that would've probably healed your suffering mind. After all, In the end it's about dying at peace, right? I somewhere know that even when your body was suffering, your mind died in peace.

Also, before leaving you left us with a question when you wrote "happiness is real when shared" but somewhere i know for you the idea of sharing was also different. You shared it it nature and the humans that came along with it. I also noticed that you didn't mention sadness, because maybe it was not something you could share with someone or even find someone to share it with and that's all what made the difference and yet people failed to notice. Anyway, thank you again.

Chris, you may have died young but yet you lived the most than any of us.

"So many people... 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 dangerous 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."

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

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

This bus is so mythical 😍😍🙈 know that the dream of escape of a man led to his death. So, I would like to do as well as him, make great trip and never look behind me. Just beautiful film, watch it... #dream #chrismccandless #alaska

One may go to nice places with spectacular views but the joy in being there is multiplied when with someone you care about. So, in the words of a wise man, "happiness only real when shared." Thank you for being my best friend.

There is something so eerily beautiful about this book, it's hard to put down. One of my favorite books I've read this year 💙
"It is the experiences, the memories, the great triumphant joy of living to the fullest extent in which real meaning is found."

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. ✨

Happiness is only real when shared. #chrismccandless

No longer to be poisoned by civilization she flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. #chrismccandless #intothewild #alexandersupertramp #142 #fairbankscity

Aug'16: A Surprise Meetup with Him! Yes, with the Alexander Supertramp!!
Here is the story - during my last year bike trip, Hard Sun was one of my fav song (it still is). I used to sing it while driving and living on the road.
The song ends with following lyrics,
"So I tried to warn her, I turned to see her weep
Forty days and Forty nights and it's still coming down on me"
In Hyderabad, I was hosted by a couple via #Couchsurfing who gifted me this memento after listening to few of my stories and the reason why I was on that stupid expedition.
I got so emotionally attached with it that I couldn't accept the gift.
In other words (reality), I was scared by the coincidence of Me getting anything related to Chris McCandless during my Following-the-Sun-Expedition and that too on Fortieth Night. :')
Remember this? @snehamagapu .
