A Mountaineer's Movie - Into the Wild

This was one of the best movies I ever watched. May be because it deals with a true to life and I can say it's a Mountaineer's Movie. What I'm telling is the movie "Into the Wild". It is a true to life story of Christopher McCandless.

Chris McCandless grew up in suburban Annandale, Virginia. After graduating in 1990 with high grades from Emory University, McCandless ceased communicating with his family, gave away his savings of approximately $25,000 to Oxfam and began traveling, later abandoning his car.

In April 1992, McCandless hitchhiked to the Stampede Trail in Alaska. There, McCandless headed down the snow-covered trail to begin an odyssey with only 10 pounds of rice, a .22 caliber rifle, several boxes of rifle rounds, a camera, and a small selection of reading material — including a field guide to the region's edible plants, Tana'ina Plantlore. He declined an acquaintance's offer to buy him sturdier clothing and better supplies. After surviving more than 100 days, he died sometime in August and his body was found, in early September, by a couple and a group of moose hunters.
