total conjecture, but some people view suffering as a type of penance or self punishment.

his goal might not have been to go painlessly but rather the opposite, although the location would to me suggest he was seeking out a place in nature and likely wanted to pass peacefully, again total conjecture.

Part of it may be age. Strychnine used to be a much more commonly known and used toxin. He’s described as an “old” man. Perhaps an older gent without a lot of scientific background. Perhaps without access to other less ghastly toxins. As far as we know, he may be from an older generation where the first deadly toxins that come to mind are arsenic and strychnine…

My first thought was that he didn’t realize there were strychnine pills in the container, which was for legitimate medication.
