Both boys have escapes the constraints of "civilized" society. Huck no longer has to go to school or church or live a life full of rules and restrictions. Jim has escaped the prison of slavery. Both boys float down the river with nothing but time and the freedom to commune with nature and do what they wish to do. Huck also does not have to live by the moral constraints of a bigoted southern society.
