Into The Wild

Remember John Kraukaur’s spellbinding book, Into The Wild? I still recall Chris McCandless’ (aka Alex Supertramp’s) credo: “Don’t own more than you can carry on your back at a dead run.” That quote lodged itself like a burr in my brain, and still pricks when I get wrapped up in wanting too much “stuff.” Alex was my first exposure to the idea of voluntary simplicity (although, his version was way extreme!) Watch the trailer for the movie adaptation. Sean Penn wrote the screenplay and directed. Eddie Vedder made the soundtrack.
