Into the wild

The movie Into the Wild documents the real life adventures of Christopher McCandless. When McCandless graduated college he went on a couple year odyssey exploring American with nothing more than his backpack. His journey ended in the wilds of Alaska.

I have mixed feelings concerning this movie. While I think McCandless was naïve and reckless, I do admire the spirit of taking changes in life. In life we always seem to walk a line between safety and adventure. It is nice to have security. But is the price worth it?
