Krakauer wanted a change, and he wanted it immediately. He didn't take any extra time to make plans.... it was a quick decision and a fresh start.....

One afternoon, after nine hours of humping two-bytens and driving sixteen-penny nails, I told my boss I was quitting: “No, not in a couple of weeks, Steve; right now was more like what I had in mind.” It took me a few hours to clear my tools and other belongings out of the crummy job-site trailer where I’d been squatting. And then I climbed into my car and departed for Alaska. I was surprised, as always, by how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt.
