Instead, he twists his own experience and only accepts slivers of data in order to protect the image of his father. The “ limit to what a child can accept” impacts the evidence Bayard acquired by observations and stories of his father.
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.

He was tempted to tell his dad about it very many times but never did.

The secret was a big part of the whole situation that he was in. In his worst moments all he could think about was the secret because not only did his mother cheat on his dad, but his dad didn't know about it so when they got divorced his dad had no idea why. He couldn't change the fact of what his mother did but he didn't need to blame it all on her either.
