"Inspired by a #truestory — If you’re a reader, I highly recommend the book as well! SYNOPSIS: Desperately wanting to get away from his overbearing father & desiring to be totally self-reliant, an idealistic young man who grew up in Southern California, makes the decision to completely abandon & cut off all communication with his family — leaving behind both his parents & his compatibly close & slightly younger sister — in the summer of 1990, soon after receiving his bachelor’s degree. He heads out on a grand adventure — his final destination is the Alaskan wilderness. He travels alone to many places, mostly by foot or by hitchhiking, or by hopping a few trains, living a tramp lifestyle. Along the way, he makes friends & meets many new people, & works a few odd jobs before finally reaching Alaska. But once he’s finally alone, out in the vast, remote wilderness, tragedy ironically ensues soon thereafter….."
