They knew it was self defense but they didn't want to take that risk. So, they went to Dally and they got some money or food, a gun, and a jacket for Ponyboy. They went to Dally because they knew if they wanted to get out of town and away from prying cops, they knew Dally would be the person to make it happen. While they were in the church Dally had sent them to a week prior, Jonny fell asleep with a cigarette still lit without Jonny realizing it. Later that day, Dally showed up and took them to lunch for some real food.

Into The Wild “Although he was rash, untutored in the ways of the backcountry, he wasn 't incompetent—he wouldn 't have lasted 113 days if he were”. This comment from Jon Krakauer’s book Into the Wild conveys his belief that young Christopher McCandless who is the focus of his novel may have been young and inexperienced in regards to the Alaskan wilderness but he was capable of basic survival as he had demonstrated during his many day’s surviving the brutal environment of the Alaskan frontier. After Christopher McCandless met his untimely death alone in a school bus down the Stampede Trail in Alaska, Jon Krakauer received considerable criticism for his viewpoint that Christopher wasn’t “stupid, tragic and inconsiderate”. He firmly believed
The air was pretty freezing. If you moved you forehead an inch out of your sleeping bag you felt that tingling feeling that sort of felt like your brain was going to freeze off or something. But across the river that morning we saw that baby cub, pretty cute and all, following it’s mama around, but you know, it could kill us if it wanted. There were a lot of scary things in the woods. But the twelve of us girls were stuck in the woods -- no weapons, only thing close to one was a knife for cutting those avocados to put in our pitas for lunch.
He was done. “Satisfied, apparently with what he had learned during his two months of solitary life in the wild, Mccandless decided to return to civilization.” (168). Mccandless had finished his quest, but sadly for him he died for a simple, unforgiving mistake. The one mistake that truly killed Chris was so: “When Mccandless tried to walk out of the bush…the basket was in the same as it is now on his side of the canyon…crossing the Teklanika to safety would have been a trivial matter. Because he had no topographic map, however, he had no way of conceiving that salvation was so close.” (174).
In the end, they end up giving up and going home, but first the main character confesses that he wasn't tough enough the whole time. This story shows that the whole time the main character was acting tough. The toughest thing he ever did was admitting he wasn't tough in the first place. One reason that the main character tries to act tough, is when he announces that he is going on a camping trip. For example, in paragraph 18 the author says, “I'm going camping in the palisades next weekend.
One terrifying experience I’ve survived is, a bear attack. This summer I went to Wallowa Lake and had a bad experience with bears. We had left our coolers out that night, and the bears found them. We didn’t realize there were bears until we heard our coolers moving. The bears were eating our friends raisinets.
I rolled over and hit snooze for the third time and dozed back into a soft peaceful sleep. I heard Thomas Rhett softly singing Leave Right Now but only realized it’s my alarm going off again and was now 5:46 a.m. Boone was going to be here in less then ten minutes. I launched off my half deflated air mattress and quickly got dressed into my warm oversized hunting gear. I grabbed some rice crispy bars and threw them in my pocket for a late breakfast. I packed a mug of freshly brewed Maxwell coffee and sat by the door.
If it’s 2 days by a carriage, I should barely be able to arrive by the end of tomorrow. However, the sun has completely set already. Let’s sleep in the open here today. Since it will only burden the guards with useless anxiety to be here, I decided to take a rest somewhere approximately 1km away from the merchant party. At night, eating canned meal, wiping my body with water produce from magic and after drying the washed undergarment, I now check the area nearby with search magic as I intend to sleep.
On the way there a lot of people fell asleep, but I couldn't. I was way too excited, I've never been camping before. Timmy, Jake and I all kept quiet, we didn't want to disturb the rest of the group while they were sleeping. I watched the sunset, which was bursting with colors of pink, red and orange. The sunset turned into day, and all of the sudden we were off the highway and into the woods.
