The post card is from Fairbanks Alaska. The tone and content is actually pretty hurtful to Chris's family and friends. He seems like he is doing what he wants to: having a great adventure in Alaska. He is however dismissive of the people who care about him. He alludes to not coming home for a long time or even dying. One wonders if he realises the gravity of his words.
