That was a strange story, about Mostly Harmless. Thru-hiking can be an intense mental experience, being for so long alone with your own thoughts. I wonder if he got depressed and decided to starve himself.

Don

All who met him said he was happy on the trail so I'm leaning towards some physical illness and the inability to recover out on the road. Other than that mystery, you have to wonder with the time elapsing, if he made it to Key West and was on the return trip. I'm leaning towards he didn't. I just don't see turning right around and ending up in the exact same place. The other question is, at some point did he decide to never return to his apartment to recover his things? Writing code on the trail for something that he needed his stuff back at home makes this really strange. If you decide to leave all your worldly goods behind, then the same mindset should have made him stop coding, in my mind.

I'm really wondering what you think about this epic search:

Alcohol and traveling outdoors in severe weather don't mix:

Canadian Woman, 68, Dies from Extreme Cold During Walk Home from Next Door Neighbor's House
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/canadian-woman-68-dies-from-extreme-cold-during-walk-home-from-next-door-neighbor-s-house/ar-BB1dAhaB

I always say, never hop in the car being dressed in clothing that wouldn't be acceptable for walking home. You never know when your car could break down, and if it's cold outside and you don't have a good jacket or appropriate footwear, you're going to be miserable if not dead.
