The interesting thing is that previous experiences don't seem to determine one's attitude, though. I mean, they probably do for any given individual, but they determine it differently depending on the individual. People with scary traumatic backgrounds where they could die doing everyday activities also sometimes turn up in the McCandless/etc group.

I'm jealous of the climbers too. But so long as they're not doing anything really egregious (I think everyone should stay off Everest) I don't see anything inherently wrong with climbing slot canyons in Colorado and so forth. They may as well get their happiness in while they can; who knows when a boulder will fall on your life. I'm glad I'm at least not sitting here thinking, "It's too bad I didn't enjoy myself while I still could," so I can't really begrudge that to others.
