Twenty-eight-year-old Marc Paterson (right, with ABC News cameraman Rob Weller) is one person following in McCandless' footsteps. Paterson said he took up the challenge to test his limits, and "Nightline" caught up with him during his journey. "If the hairs on the back of my neck might stand up now and then, well, that's how you know that you're having a real adventure," he said. (Neal Karlinsky/ABC News)
