On September 10, 1990, Westerberg picked up McCandless hitchhiking in Cut Bank. There was an instant connection. After discovering documents from Alex's past life, “something wasn’t right between him and his family, but I don’t like to pry into other people’s business, so I never asked about it.” (Krakauer 18). When it was time for McCandless to leave, he made sure that he stayed in touch with Westerberg as he by writing and sending letters to Carthage every month or two.
Chris' relationship with his sister is significant in that the reason that they got along so well was because “We learned to count on each other when Mom and Dad weren’t getting along”’(Krakauer 107). Though Chris' relationship with his parents was difficult, his sister was always there for him. Chris states in a letter that“... like to talk to you about this because you are the only person in the world who could possibly understand what I’m saying.”’(Krakauer 129).
Though Jim was in Chris’s life for a very short period of time,it is worth mentioning. In his innocent intentions toto help Chris with a trip he wanted to take.Gallien, trying to help the young hiker, offered Chris two tuna and grilled cheese sandwiches, a pair of boots and advice on the Alaskan wilderness. In case he needed aide later on or needed somewhere to stay when he got back.
