The theme that sticks out most to me is the grip of wilderness. People go into the wilderness to get a sense of the way life was supposed to be without the technology that we have today and without all the new improved housing that we have today. People go on these type of adventures because they want a chance to get away from all the modernized ways of living and get a feel of what it is like to fight for survival. McCandless dropped everything and left without a word to anyone to go experience the natural life.

The allure of high risk activity has the most relevance to me. This theme has the most relevance to me because I relate this to my allure to racing. Racing is a dangerous sport and I have a natural allure to it because of the adrenaline rush it gives me. I am not scared to participate in high risk activities as long as its exciting and fun for me. I tend to disassociate from people who are scared to do dangerous activities because i believe that you should live life to the fullest.
3- doesnt restate question, but good personal reasons
Out of Krakauer's 3 identified themes, the one concept that holds the most relevance to me is: allure of high risk activity. The adrenaline rush excites me when doing something that's considered high risk. Living a boring life, in my opinion, is keeping yourself in a bubble with no room for trying new things. I'd rather be terrified of my own actions than be scared of what bad could happen to me. Sometimes high risk things gives me less of numb feeling. Jumping into a fast pace river isn't something most people wouldn't do, but when you're not afraid to die it gives you euphoria.
4- resates the question, good structure, no errors
The theme that holds the most relevance to me is the grip of wilderness because ever since I was young, I loved to go camping, boating, or hiking. I first started camping with my dad when we went to a campsite in Kentucky and ever since then I've loved go outdoors. My favorite part of the outdoors is the views you get to witness when hiking. They are the most beautiful and gorgeous site you could ever lay your eyes on.
The most alluring theme is the grip of the wilderness. Nature is all inspiring. There is death, life, and beauty. It all comes together to form a place of adventure. The wilderness grips our imagination and changes our perspective on life. There is nothing like hiking in the Grand Canon, scuba diving in Mexico, or climbing Mount Washburn. The world is our playground and we have every right to explore it.
3- doesnt restate question, but reasons are good , yet little to no personal reasons
Of Krakauer's 3 identified themes I feel that "grip of the wilderness" is most relevant to me. Personally, I love the thought of going out in the middle of nowhere and just enjoying my time, not worrying about contacting anyone else. Another way I can relate to this is when I experienced moving states. I lived in Arizona, my parents had already moved to Indiana months before. I was living on my own, working, and going to school. I had an urge to just move and go restart my life. I packed up everything and went off by myself. It took 3 days to drive to Indiana and I enjoyed every second of it. I stopped at different places to just walk around and look at the different scenes. Every state I passed through was a different experience. Once getting here, I was reunited with my family, so I wasn't on my own anymore. But, restarting my life was a new adventure. I got to find a new job, go to a new school, and make new friends. I adjusted very quickly and am loving this new adventure I'm on!
4- restates question, good info, little to no errors
The grip of the wilderness is what I feel like as a person can relate to the most. The wilderness has so much to do with our day to day life. There's so many places and caves and natural land forms to go and explore in the wilderness. It impacts so many animals and people's lives everyday. I think it's really a cool place to go and find new things or go start an adventure of your own. I've grown up to love the wild and everything it has to offer to us. It's such an interesting place to just look at and think about.
3- backs up argument, but no personal reasons or explanation
Of the 3 themes that Krakauer speaks of or focuses on, I would say that the theme of the allure of high risk activity really is the one that relates to me. While I m not going sky diving or anything, I do like things like rock climbing. However, I would say that the bond between father and son a;so has some relevance ,especially as I get ready to move out,and start talking more with him.
3- npt a lot of personal reasons, very short
Of the three concepts listed, the allure of high-risk activities stand out to me the most. High risk activites involve a lot of risky consequences, but in return offer great reward and accomplishment. When I take part in a high risk activity, the rewarding feeling usually overcomes the risky consequences and is why there is a great allure of high-risk activities that not just me, but multiple others take part in. Theres also a sense of showing off what high-risk activity one has accomplished while others want to go try it also. Lastly, I do think people's mindsets are more in the present than in the future, which explains why people want that rewarding outcome in high-risk activities rather than thinking ahead with the bad possibilities.
3- actually restates question, plenty of personal reasons
"Allure of high risk activity" holds the most relevance to me because I believe that you only live once, so why not live your life to the fullest, take risks, and have fun. Allowing teens to take risk and do the dangerous things allows them to be more responsible and lets them settle down more as adults because they have done the risk taking, and the not so smart activities already. People do high risk activities to feel the "high", the rush of adrenaline, you get when your doing something dangerous, but also having fun. I don't want to die with regrets, the thought of missing out on fun chances I didn't take, I want to be able to say I lived my life the best way I could, and had the most fun I could.
3-doesnt restate question,interesting stance and also
Out of Krakauer's 3 identified themes, the charged bond between a father and son - or in my case, a mother and daughter. Firstly, I have always been interested in the way interpersonal relationships between all humans work, so this exploration of a parental bond falls right into that. Secondly, I have always wondered and even theorized myself about the complications within a parental/child relationship - what leads to clashes between a parent and a child? I think mainly a parent's tendency to be overprotective and want the absolute best for their child as well as the child's inability to truly understand that is one of the main causes of fights amongst family, especially later in life when the child is just beginning to figure out what they want to grow up and become. It will be interesting to see the relationship between McCandless and his father, as well as the author and his, and their differences in opinions and views about what a child should become.
Allure of high risk activity. I love when my adrenaline starts pumping, and butterflies swarm your stomach. Cliffs and high spots excite me from head to toe. The thought of walking up to a 80 foot drop off just gives me chills, but good chills. I’ve always wanted to go zip lining. I’m a thrill loving , risk taking, adrenaline junky. I’m more of a send it person so many risks are involved. Give me a good dare id probably do it on my account just to prove I can do it.
3-doesn't restate question, but good personal reasons
The concept that holds most relevance to me has to be the bond of father and son. As a family person, family is what raises you. Parents, mentors are trusted people that you can fall when you get in a bad place. Without them you wouldn't have any guidance in the time of need. Any mistakes made will be on you and you alone. Examples would be if you run out of money, or need food. Strangers aren't just going to just give that to you. Parents are the ones that are supposed to provide you that food and knowledge of how to get it for yourself. Getting sick or badly injuried you can't just take care of yourself. Parents are needed to help their kids have the life they deserve. Without them it just makes unpredictable and difficult.
The grip of the wilderness is what hold´s the most relevance with me. Throughout my life I have almost always been surrounded by machines, buildings and just a constant noise all around me. always their and just gets to be to much for me. When out in the wilderness I get to see sites I never would have in the city, also out their you really can´t hear the noise of the city ether so I could be left with this scents of peace and see the life that the wilderness holds, that know one else can see from the TVs or cell phones. I get to experience it all first hand and enjoy it.
3- many good personal reasons, but also "hold's" instead of holds
The one theme that holds the most relevance to me is the grip of the wilderness. This topic holds the most relevance to me because My happy place is already the woods it is where I am most relaxed and worry free.So I would be just fine with going out in to the woods. With how the world and how society is today I would be more happy by myself in the woods. For one I wouldn't have to pay taxes and live by the corrupted laws, another thing that would be better is I wouldn't have to see the world fall apart with all the hate and negativity. The only thing that I would have to worry about is myself and surviving. I wouldn't have to deal with the ignorance of everyone. The life out in the woods by myself would just be simple and i would be happy. That is why the theme the grip of the wilderness is most relevant to me.
3-concludes it started, also lots of ideas, but didn't restate the question
Personally the one that most relates to me is the allure of high risk activity. People want to take that risk because it will make them feel a dopamine rush which make anyone feel significantly better. The downside to taking risk is that there might go bad so lets say you're parachuting, but you get to where you pull you chute and it doesn't fly out. I have felt this by doing things I shouldn't be doing at school, but I end up getting in trouble for said activities because people don't always see or think exactly what you saw or thought.
The concept that holds the most relevance to me is allure of high risk activity. The reason behind that is because nowadays young people feel the allure of high risk activities just to see if it will get them somewhere on the internet. Young people want to show off for others around the world through the screens, even when they know the risks. The praise from the internet does not help either. All of the cheers from young people on the internet just encourages others to try said high risk activity. For example, there is a trend on the internet where people record themselves dancing on the roof of their house or other high place. This trend has encouraged others do start doing the same and from what I think the allure for high risk activity won't stop anytime soon.
3- not many personal reasons, but backs up the reasons that are there
The grips of the wilderness holds the most relevance. When people are trying to focus or clear their mind, most of the time they want a quite atmosphere. In the wilderness there is a certain calm not found anywhere else. People are drawn to it, including myself. Hearing nothing but the wind blow through the leaves on the trees, or the sound or a squirrel running through the leaves. Many people have a connection with the wilderness and love the natural feeling. I connected with this from a young age and going back into the wilderness gives that nostalgia and reminds me where I came from and who I am.
3- good reasons, also, I'm sorry, but you said "quite" instead of quiet
The theme that holds the most relevant would have to be allure of high risk activity. People see these as thrills and enticement to be apart of. Remembering the time in Cancun when a group of people jumped off a drop into a pond it was exciting . It was trilling and scary. We did it to fill open and to face our fear. It showed us power after doing the trill, it gave us a relief that we could deft the course and concur the water. I personally feel people do these activities to see how far they can push themselves and see how far they can go into an activity. It's about they trill in life and the feeling after, the adrenaline rush you receive and the concurring the one thing you were terrified to do. Everyone wants to feel that rush in their lives, wants to deft an object they never thought they can do, that's why they do the obstetrical that scare them the most.
3- not any personal reasons, also "trill" instead of thrill,and "deft the course"? and "concur" i,along with "obstetrical" instead of obstacle
The concept that holds the most relevance to me is the bond between mother/daughter. This concept holds the most relevance to me because I, as an individual am a very family orientated or in another words a "home body". The bond that me and my mother have is very strong. She is not only my mom, but she is my best friend. When I'm down she is always there to pick me up, or when I have made a mistake she is there to tell me that I am okay and everything will be great in the end. She understands who I am as a person and knows that I set myself to a high standard, and she hopes that one day I will achieve the goals that I have set for myself. This is why this concept holds the most relevance to me because without my mom who knows where I would be.
3- good reasons, backs them up, along with an actual conclusion
The charged bond of father and son holds the most relevance to me because my father has been my best friend my entire life and has helped me and supported me throughout all of my bad times. My father has been a major influence in my life and his influence has helped me set my career path in sports. Him, along with my mother, has helped mold my character to be respectful towards others and to stay away from the wrong crowd. His kindness and his mercy has helped me become a selfless man. I am eternally grateful for what he has done to help me out all of my life, and for my future.
The allure of high risk activity and the bond between father and daughter are both something that I can relate to and they seem to be connected when I am doing high risk activities. Growing up my father and I would go off by ourselves and go on wild adventures. I believe that if my father and I would have not been as close, I wouldn't have my adventurous spirit and the need to do thrilling and adrenalin filled activities. For example, when I was 10 years old, my father and I took our boat to Kentucky Lake and jumped off a 50 foot cliff into the water. When I was 14, my family went to Brazil and had the experience of cliff jumping and snorkeling with locals. All of these activities were something that I liked to do with my father, but also are thrilling adventures of life.
3- good reasons
One of the themes that is most relevant to me is the grip of the wilderness. Being an avid fisher and hunter and camper the love I have for the wilderness is beyond most. The looks, smells, and sounds of the woods are so appealing to me. Seeing the trees sway in the wind and hearing the rustle of the leaves gives me a feeling that I never feel in the city. It never gets old. It makes me feel bad for the people who wake up day to day in the same boring city. The ones who live life in big cities and never get to see the untouched side of this world are the ones who miss out the most.
3- good personal reasons, little to no errors
The most relevant theme to me is the charged bond of father/son. I believe that a fathers job as a parent is to make his son a better man than he is. What I mean by this, is that he should want his son to be a respectful and well mannered young man. The bond should always stay strong between a son and his father as as then son gets older, because the son can seek wisdom from their experienced dads. If the father/son bond is not strong, I believe that is noticeable by the way the kid presents himself to the world.
3- reasons are good, but not exactly personal or related to you
The wilderness can hold a grip on anyone that wants an escape. When someone has grown up with a formal, or well off home life, its not uncommon for the thought of living somewhere without all of that to intrigue them. Whether its a hope for clear head space, or just needing a break from luxury. The peacefulness of the wild can seem like the perfect solution. Even if its not trying to live off the land in the middle of bear country, because maybe for some, a simple cabin or RV away from the chaos life can become may be all they need. The grip wildness has, in my opinion is valuable for its opportunity to get away from a personal reality for awhile.
3- doesnt restate question, supporting arguments are good, though
The wilderness has always had a hold on me. As a child, my father would take me into the woods for hours at a time. The sounds of cars and the hum of the city faded into the distance leaving only the dirt crunching under my feet and the wind whistling through the trees to break through the silence. As I got older, these memories were some of my most fond, compelling me to find that tranquility I found in the woods everywhere I go. The stench of the city leaves a foul taste in my mouth but the woodland air cleanses my palette. Still, when I'm lost I can always find myself in the woods.
3-deesn't restate question, good structure and word choice
Of the three themes, allure high risk activity is the one that stands out most to me. During the first couple chapters of the book, Alex lives his life with little plan. He lives out in the desert for the first couple months out of someone camper, where he shouldn't of been. He takes risk by living under no identity, little money and making friends. If none of this had gone out to plan, he still may be stuck and not have ever been able to make it to Texas.
