  •  A Long Time I Got Kicked (6+ / 0-)

    out of a book club. It was like 1995. We read Jon Krakauer's book. I am an avid hiker. There is no chance I'd leave you on a mountain top. Worse case, I'd die with you. No chance, none I'd let you die there. You come out with me or we all die.

    •  I'm a hiker, too. Have you seen "Into the Void"? (3+ / 0-)

      I saw it on a night time trans-pacific flight to Asia, and thought that it was an interesting choice of film in that context.  I was completely gripped....

      Re the Krakauer story.  I'd seen the IMAX film about climbing Everest that season (the filmmakers were in the group just in front of the Krakauer group, IIRC) and had also seen the write-up about that series of events in National Geographic before his book came out.  Unbelievable what some people will do in highly stressful situations.
