Trail of the Lost. The Relentless Search to Bring Home the Missing Hikers of the Pacific Crest Trail. Authored by Andrea Lankford, a former NPS investigative ranger. She spent four years involved with various personnel searching for the three individuals that were lost and never found while hiking the PCT. One of them, Kris Fowler (Sherpa) was lost in WA. The other two in Southern California.

Ultra-Processed People The science behind food That Isn't Food Chris Van Tulleken Interesting book on ultra processed foods (UPF). How the procedure of refining ingredients is the cause of health issues. A bit stomach churning, but pretty much confirmed my thoughts toward ' convenience foods'. Not just snacks, but the whole industrial food chain. Whenever I talked about the 'food' I was eating,she corrected me: 'Most UPF is not food ,Chris. It's an industrially produced edible substance '. PS Just finished. More disgusting than I realized. If you read 1 book on nutrition this year. Choose this one.

^ I generally try to avoid ALL of the aisles in the middle of the supermarkets. If other people want to eat that garbage, I figure that's possibly fewer people I'll be standing behind in line. up.gif meant to mention this earlier... "A Sound Defense - Military Sites, Lighthouses, and Memorials of Puget Sounds" by Nancy McDaniel of Chimacum, Washington My mother and I went to a "craft fair" of sorts up at Discovery Bay, where we found the author peddling her works. This one is fascinating local history.

The MANIAC, by Benjamin Labatut An examination of von Neumanns influence on mid 20 century Mathematics, Physics, Computers, AI, Philosophy, and History. von Neumann laid the mathematical basis for Quantum Mechanics, designed Atomic and Hydrogen bombs, and the first general purpose digital computers. His work is described by imagined statements by his contemporaries Turning, Feynman, Einstein, and others. The author also wrote, When We Cease to Understand the World.

"The Salt Path" by Raynor Winn.....a lovely book about folks who lose their home and then hike the 620 mile long trail around Cornwall England. She is a very descriptive writer and I'm well into her second book "The Wild Silence." up.gif cool.gif

Network of lies Epic saga of Fox news.... Brian Stelter media insider wades through the Dominion vs Fox transcripts. Very illuminating. Murdoch says to Scott "Fox News and shows like Hannity should not champion public figures who appear mad". 2/5/21

A must read if you are into Aviation, and Wildland FireFighting.
