Fall is approaching and then weather is still warmer than usual. As Chris remembers his good times with Wayne and his family, he realizes he cannot live without relationships. Chris decides to hike back to the Teklanika River to go back to society.
I cannot handle this alone anymore. I need to live and to do that I have to go back to live with people.
Unfortunately, the warm weather melted the ice and filled the river. Rocks clashing at the bottom makes it impossible for Chris to pass through.
Oh no! The river is raging now! I cannot cross the river until winter approaches again when the water is calmer.
Chris is forced to return Bus 142 and hope to stay alive and safe until it is safe to go back.
