Man and His Dog Leave Home and Find Themselves Walking Into the Wild
My dog, Bobby, and I moved into my truck and left North Carolina 90+ days ago bound for Deadhorse, Alaska. That’s as far north as a civilian can drive in the United States. We made it, but that’s just the beginning. We’ve driven thousands of miles, picked up hitchhikers, hiked into the wild, and discovered that we were doing more than wandering. We’ve found a life style that suites us and makes us feel alive.
For the moment we are staying Alaska. Winter is coming so we rented a room to base out of. My job is completely mobile and I work every day. Bobby loves the car, and I can’t think of anyone better to share it with.
We’ve given up a lot to wander. We’ve found more.

I didn’t leave North Carolina with plans to hike to the bus. The more we traveled the more connections I made to the Chris McCandless story.
