Why isn't IST Mccandlessmaxxing?
I have, results weren't worth it
Just kinda sucks all around. Hitch hike halfway across the country (usa), met a lot of great, or at least interesting people. After a month or 2 in the woods, I got bored and just went back. Kinda missed people.
>Kinda missed people.
Only everytime I jack off
there is nothing more to life than sustaining living, not destroying everything for adventure, because your yale parents gave you no purpose.
Honestly thinking about trying it.
But I know the risks and my mom would be beyond sad.
My friend is currently doing something like this, I don’t think it’s as great as people make it out to be. I’d rather save up money and fly somewhere exotic then have the money to eat at good restaurants and do other fun shit
On of the hallmarks of whether someone is an NPC or not is if they understand the attraction of doing a McCandless. NPCs don't understand and just want their cities, restaurants and cafes.
>y-youre a-an NPC
absolute cope, also never said anything about cities, I regularly travel to Alaska to catch copious amounts of salmon to smoke and can for the year, this requires money. A mccandles trip is literal poverty living, enjoy being like pic related fag
>sees author example used to further an argument/elaborate on idea
>75% of his response to it is about that being false because he never said it himself
>makes a bs cope-filled greentext response with no actual rebuttal
"McCandless Living" is not being reliant on society. He goes to a homeless shelter in LA and nopes out almost immediately because he sees he would have to rely on other people.
“McCandles living” is all about going out to live in the harshest environment possible despite being completely ignorant about any kind of survival or camping knowledge then slowly dying due to your intense retardation then eating poisonous berries when in reality you were a short walk away from a major highway where you could’ve gotten help
And if you don't understand the appeal of that you're an NPC, un-ironically
>appeal of dying via shitting yourself to death for no reason
also find a new insult other than “NPC” lol
These are gypsies. They do this shit all over the world.
Yea, kid graduates from an Ivy League school with rich parents and then throws it away like a dumbass by dying in the woods despite being half and hour from a town that he couldn’t get too because he was too stupid to bring a map with him.
>y-y-you don’t get how romantic it was. Y-y-you a NPC!
Cope more retard. The people who actually live and hunt in the area that kid died in openly state how sick of the morons trying to imitate his dum assert they are because they end up having to rescue them every year.
He was a dumb city kid that didn’t prepare or even really understand what it is like in the wild. I grew up in rural West Virginia, you city fucks need assistance in state parks with clear trails. This guy fucked off to Alaska, doing exactly zero preparation.
Hell he couldn’t even make it out of the continental 48 without having to steal food. But sure, going to bumfuck Alaska sounds smart.
>since becoming famous 2 other city people have died trying to reach the bus
We gotta pump those numbers up
I read somewhere that they had to pick up the bus and move it so retards would stop killing themselves.
>fly somewhere exotic then have the money to eat at good restaurants and do other fun shit
You're just poor.
Wanderlust is genetic.
Only them parks and tourist traps are goy.
Ive only ever heard white women in their early twenties say this word
HECKIN G O O D
>Why aren't you going to the woods with minilap preparation, which did not include a map?
Well gee why shouldn't I. Dying because I ate poisonous fruits and couldn't find a bridge to walk to the nearest city since the route I originally used got flooded and I almost drowned trying to go back sounds like a fun time.
God this guy was a retard.
i thought he died from rabbit starvation
Didn't this retard die because he was too stupid to tell the difference between edible and non-edible mushrooms? and didn't know how to smoke meat?
No, but pretty close.
I'm not a homeless garden gnome.
I remember getting actually mad while learning about this guy in colege. Retard went innawoods with zero preparation and no game plan. He was one of those sheltered pricks who has never left the city before and thought the wilderness was some magical place but actually got ganked like a noob instead.
Didnt this guy shit himself to death lol stinky ass bro
literally died from eating poisonous berries out of desperation because he was starving due to lack of knowledge on how to survive in the middle of the Alaska wilderness
all the meanwhile he was less than a short hike away from a major highway where he could have gotten help
it was an okay book(the one by Jon Krakauer), I read it in high school. i'll admit it inspired me, after being a incel-tier depressed at 18 and barely graduating high school I got with some friends and hopped trains and hitch-hiked from NY to philadelphia PA down to richmond VA, and back up to baltimore MD.
we mostly spanged(begged) or busked for money. being young looking, we always got food or kicked down tips$. we rode up to Chicago and it's one of the more rougher cities to be in when you are literally a fresh faced teen and 'poor' with nothing but the threads on your ass.
the cities huge and hostile with gun violence and poverty and shit. My travel buddies switched hands and I saw most states up until Minneapolis Minnesota. It was literally like Oregon trail where you end up on the other side of the country and your party is a completely different crew of people.
anyway we caught the high line out of Minneapolis which I remember as a peaceful midwestern city on the comeup. And got into the grody pacific northwest by way of Pasco WA and down to portland OR.
I spent a month or so tripping balls off shrooms in the redwood rainforest and going up and down the bay. would call my parents to wire me a few hundred dollars every so often. I had a few EBT cards from different states like a journeying crackhead.
bottomline: I rate it an 8/10 for the experience of like raw-dog living life in the moment. but I would trade it for a job and security I was also very NOT fit back then and was the definition of a DYEL smoker and alcohol drinker.
living that sort of life things can go from extremely fun to stabby shit-stained nightmare real fast on a turn of a dime. It's just youth and experiencing life.
Because McCandless was a retard who deserved to die.
because I'm busy Johnjonesmaxxing
I just learned about these yesterday and you post about it - is this site AI generated based on cookies?
Let's pretend his passion was Nascar driving...
Christopher McCandless sets off, from California in an old car he rebuilt himself (he replaced the fenders and painted it), on a trip to the Daytona 500. He only gets across the state line when he runs out of fuel because he forgot to fill it up. Instead of simply walking to the nearest gas station or flagging down help he decides to push his car over an embankment and set it on fire. He then proceeds to walk on foot to the nearest car lot (which happens to be in Mexico for some reason, mostly because he burned up his map in the car and he's been taking backroads.) He finds an old bicycle in a garbage dump and uses that.
He finally gets to the car lot and buys a fixer-upper for $50. Before leaving the car lot he has to change a tire, which he replaces with the solid rubber donut. He buys fuel and heads off to the Daytona 500 again. Only he's heading deeper into Mexico and eventually ends up broken down in front of, "Autodromo Internacional de la Jolla" due to no water in the radiator. The engine block has seized up. Luckily, there's a race about to start. Christopher...er "Alexander Superspeeder", who changed his name, pays the $125 entry fee for the race.
Unfortunately, Alexander Superspeeder doesn't have a race car. He does however have an old bicycle still. He uses the bicycle to race. He makes it only 3 laps before he is too tired to steer straight and veers off into a race car and is killed.
Some garden gnome picks up his story and writes a book about his life and how he followed his dreams. Another garden gnome makes a movie about it. Armchair racers around the world adore him.
The movie acts like you're supposed to feel sorry for this self righteous gay.He must have been insufferable as all get out.
Still pissed he didn't bang the jailbait
That's the real reason these gays shouldn't be idolizing him
>Dry fast until failure
100% guaranteed permanent weight loss.
I wish nature would do to every larping queerbait what it did to this hipster phony.
I'd have to bang my head against a wall at least a couple of times to match his IQ, and that sounds painful.
He was literally just living in a van down by the river
No, it was a magic bus
I love the part of the story where they had to remove the bus with a helicopter because retards kept going there and had to get rescued so often that it was cheaper to get the damn bus out of there.
No, he sat in it starving and shitting himself to death.
>Worries friends and family to death
>dies like an idiot
This guy is lame and was nowhere near smart enough to achieve his goals, however uinderstandable they were. Also don't scare your momma like that it ain't right.
>don't scare your momma like that it ain't right
There might be times it is justified but this retard's reasons were most certainly not justified.
this. the guys is a total retard. he was given 100 chances not to die and he decided to just eat poisonous seeds instead.
Summertime in Alaska is the easiest fucking time to survive.
Pic related was just a failed actor from Long Island and even he managed to last a hell of a lot more summers than Mccandless.
Because he actually prepared. He had food, equipment, and a small network of people who helped him.
McCandless basically just wandered out with a bag of rice and a shitty rifle.
Even these famous mountain men in the 1800s usually had considerable contact with people they could trade with and these people were the real deal.
This is true.
Jeremiah Johnson is probably the most rugged of them all but he knew better than to do it without his injun waifu.
Id rather prepare for civilization to fall instead of flee from it.
Also this dudes and the people who worship him are fags
Why would I when I can tedmaxx?
think the point is McCandless story is not particularly unique but outlines a growing subculture of modern discontent with society
Minimalist vacations are cringe. Anyone who acts like they'd rather be walking down the highway smelling like shit with a backpack rather than a lunging in nice hotel room in Pattaya fucking teen hookers is lying to themselves on a spiritual level.
