    Some say McCandless was stupid for going out into the wilderness without knowing what he was doing. But he wasn't, yes he had errors that cost him his life but he enjoyed the journey. There are many critics and non believers who doubt that he did not find what he was looking for but we can not be sure if he did or not. He wasn’t mentally ill but he did have things in his mind he needed to sort out. Like Krakauer says, McCandless was something else, though no one exactly knows what he was. We all…

    I agree with Callarman’s argument. Chris McCandless was a top student and athlete at Emory University. He graduated and already had a great career set for him. He had no business going into the Alaskan Wilderness. Why he went into the Alaskan Wilderness? I don’t know. He just made his decisions based on his arrogance. I don’t think he made the best decisions when he was on his own, but they were the decisions he wanted to make. He…
