Like McCandless, Reuss was impetuous, unconcerned with his safety, and rarely bothered by the discomfort of being without things that we would consider necessary. Like Chris, he was a romantic..... he was mysterious, changing his name regularly.... signing his name Nemo. Both men died young, Reuss was never found, and it isn't even certain, merely assumed.
