Into the Wild 16-18

In Chapter 17, Krakauer does not arrive at the bus until after about four pages.In those first pages, he gives us the details of the equipment he carries, the flow of the river, and the others with him. Is this necessary? What does it add? What does it detract

The description of Krakauer's equipment and supplies serves to exemplify what Chris was missing. Krakauer isn't planning on spending months alone in the Chris was, thus, this section serves to illustrate Chris' lack of preparation.
