Today is a day that most don’t recognize as an anniversary of sorts. It is a story that has inspired many & has modified peoples outlook on how travel can affect the soul. Today is the 22nd anniversary of Christopher McCandless’ death. Self-appointed as Alexander Supertramp, he has inspired me to work towards living as my true self. His legacy lives on & I thank him for having been a brave & true-to-self human being. Your legacy is timeless.
“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
– Christopher McCandles.
