I think his bike ran out of gas and he had no food or water left so he tried to go get gas and didn't make it. Phone Post 3.0

Went out into desert with geological maps that suggested a water hole/pond in a certain area. This waterhole was dried up and since it was going to be a resupply point he didnt have enough to get back to the bike. Died of exposure on route.
 
Exactly this.  It was nothing like Into the Wild.  Evan was on a well-supplied camping trip.  The trouble came when his supplies were all back at camp as he went on a side excursion to the water hole 5 miles away, which turned out to be dry at that time of year.
 
Evan tried walking back to his camp.  He made it 4 of the 5 miles before succumbing to exposure.
 
There's a really excellent write-up of the whole affair - and Evan in general - here:
 
 
RIP.  I always enjoyed watching him fight and watching him try to articulate the ways in which he struggled to make sense of his inner demons and how they related to the outer world.  Evan was really one of a kind.

"It's interesting to see members on here that shit talked him when he was around. Fuckin Corky of all people."

What's even more interesting is when so many people suddenly love someone precisely because he died.

I take a gamble every time I bang a hooker with no rubber, but don't tweet about it...
