Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care. McCandless was also seen as ignorant. He was not only careless with the feelings of others, but also with his well being. He didn’t seem to know what would be awaiting him in the wild because he
Gary continued to work all his life, he worked for Sky as an installer for a while, actually he worked for them twice, and he also drove the wagons for Davy Price too. I asked if Gary had any particularly endearing qualities that sprang straight to mind and I was told his smile, his infectious smile, and his loyalty, he was like a gentle giant who would never do you a bad
Despite the fact that he was my father, it felt as though he might have well as been a stranger, as I knew almost nothing about him. Because of my experiences with Tom, I knew how much drawing someone could reveal about them and how much closer it could bring you to them so because of this I decided to draw my dad. Throughout the process of drawing my dad, we talked for hours on end and over time the father-son bond that had been missing for almost my entire childhood, slowly formed between us. As this bond continued to strengthen, so to did my skills as artist continue to
He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing since leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that

I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
McCandless met a lot of people throughout his journey, and impacted almost every single one of them. A prime example is when he met Ron (an old sheltered man), he had spoken to Ron about his life, and what he was going to do. Now Ron wasn’t so happy because he doesn’t enjoy life the way he should, and that is exactly what McCandless talked to him about. McCandless told him that he doesn 't have to keep living inside, and that he should get out more and see the world. This interaction left an impact on Ron, and now McCandless leaves Ron with a new way to enjoy life.

My mom said i'm just like him and so is Joey. My dad had arthritis in his legs so my aunt debbie had to carry his to school every day. He loved being outside but he couldn't so my brother Joey is in football for my dad and himself even if it's dangerous.

They had claimed that the parents neglected to prevent the tragedy, however neither boys
Franz first met Chris when he gave Chris a ride to ‘Oh-My-God Hot Springs’. Ronald was very vulnerable when he first met McCandless since he had lost his wife and son while he was in the war.

So, after school, we hopped on the bus and started our 30 minute journey to the country. We arrived at the house and noticed how dreary and cold it was getting. A long wait ensued for our friend’s dad to get home from work so we could hook up the trailer and get the equipment rounded up.
