Dear Chris, I am currently reading about your story. I’m glad Krakauer had decided to write about you on your long journey. I am intrigued on why you were not fully prepared for the endeavor you took. The adventure you took was great but you were alone and it’s not right how you couldn’t even let your parents know where you were. Even if you were not fond of them they are still your parents and they love you no matter what. I don’t think you took the correct approach when going on the adventure how you did. I can not relate to you or your intentions because I wouldn’t do something like you did, but I still feel as if you shouldn’t have gone on that journey.
