Christopher McCandless (Into the Wild)

Christopher McCandless ended up living mobile without a vehicle.
His story was told in the book and movie: Click Here  Into The Wild

"A production crew from Animal Planet is in South Dakota this week. They are retracing the steps of Christopher McCandless.

He's the young man who hiked into the Alaskan wilderness in1992 with little food or equipment, hoping to live in isolation.

McCandless' journey has been well documented. A movie was made about his travels called 'Into the Wild.' But now Animal Planet is producing a one-hour long documentary about the man who died a lonely death. "


  1. Saw the movie a couple of months ago. What a spirit he had, but such a sad ending to his life.
