The book Into the Wild by Jon Krakaur is a true story about a man who intentionally disappeared. It is very compelling reading.
too bad he wasnt up to snuff on what plants could poison you.
i didnt read the book but watched the movie.
i felt bad for the dude. the way he died.
not sure if this is true but the movie said there was a spot where he could have crossed the water not too far from where he was camped out.
let that be a lesson. if youre gonna fade out into the wild, you better know how to survive.
dude got hungry and ate a plant that was poison and he suffered his way into death.
truebrit, i get what youre saying. i could leave everyone and everything except for my wife and daughter.
i have brothers. a mother....
walking away from all of them would be the easy part. i dont feel too much of an attachment to my family. i wouldnt even say i love my brothers. i
hardly ever see them.
i love my mom but it is not some deep love. i know she loves me but i dont think she likes me all that much.
my brothers btw are half or step. i have always felt that when my mother looks at me she sees my father.
we resemble each other. she said we have the same mannerisms...use the same lingo. etc
i think she just cant get past it
anyway, i think the walking away part would be easy. if i had to go to someplace like the due from into the wild, like alaska, i couldnt survive.
in a city i would be fine but if i had to fend for myself...like hunting and prepping my own food...things like that..i would be done for
