The end approacheth. Some of us have been talking about getting together over the summer to make more beer, possibly go on some hikes, and read some books.
If we do start a book club, I suggest we begin with Endurance by Alfred Lansing. It’s the story of Ernest Shackleton and his crew on their effort to make the first on-foot crossing of the Antarctic. They got stuck in the ice, survived on drifting ice packs, escaped in a lifeboat, set out for southern Chile but had to reroute to South Georgia over 800 miles away… and everyone survived. It’s been called one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. And Paul D recommended it.
But first, I’ll have to learn how to read.
