Eddie Vedder

You hadn’t read [Into the Wild] previously?
No. Everyone else I knew had.

It’s one of those books you read in college and decide you’re going to throw away your whole stupid life and run off to the woods and die.
Yeah — or live. Learn from his few mistakes. We were talking about it a bit last night. I think it will not only affect people who did that stuff, who relate to that because they did something similar, but it’ll affect people who didn’t do it, and are wondering why they didn’t, having lost that chance.

One does get older and realize you’re way too immersed in your life to chuck it all and go hike the Appalachian Trail or whatever.
It’s amazing how quickly you can break out, though. You can. It’s right there at all times. The edge is closer than we think. You can put yourself out there in a few hours. And you can always come back, most of the time.
