Sheryl, maybe its the loner in me combined with a desire to remind myself I am in NO WAY capable of survivalism LOL

Krakauers book there should be interesting. Thanks for that. Krakauer also wrote Into the Wild - liked that too- Chris McCandless who walked into Alaska and died alone there.
This book, K2, discusses contradictions,inconsistencies, and writers bias in several of the previous books about attempts on that mountain. Its so hard to know what to believe sometimes. Last nights section was more interesting as he finally got to a more detailed tale of a specific event.

DonkeyJay, I have not read those but thanks for the tips! Of course I was also gripped by that story of the guy in Utah that cut his hand off... Blinking Blinking
