Well, not literally blasted into space, but the attempt was made. I think Johnny Depp may have been in charge of the event. But Thompson was somewhat in outer space all the time. I don't recall seeing any stories about where the capsule ended up.

Amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Now, something about Williams Lake. This books sums it up perfectly:
The night Mark Leiren-Young drove into Williams Lake, British Columbia, in 1985 to work as a reporter for the venerable Williams Lake Tribune, he arrived on the scene of an armed robbery. And that was before things got weird. For a 22-year-old from Vancouver, a stint in the legendary Cariboo town was a trip to another world and another era. From the explosive opening, where Mark finds himself in a courtroom just a few feet away from a defendant with a bomb strapped to his chest, to the case of a plane that crashed without its pilot on board, Never Shoot a Stampede Queen is an unforgettable comic memoir of a city boy learning about—and learning to love—life in a cowboy town.

My reference to Williams Lake is documentary called "Honor For All" from the 1970's.

As to interesting reading....actually while on the road towing I listen to audio books and Lee Child is my favorite with the Jack Reacher stories. I must have ten or more and they are as good the second or third time as the first.....for the geriatric set who have CRS.....😉

As a (long ago) city boy who just left a cowboy town, I can understand the culture bending experiences of Mark Leiren-Young. I have a friend from another big city who landed a reporter's job in yet another rural town in Colorado and he was probably little older than 22; I'm not sure he has ever recovered even 30 years later.

Msmoto, do you mean "The Honour of All," which is about the scourge of alcoholism amongst the Cariboo First Nations?

While we're on the topic of vintage small-town documentaries, this one profiles Port Alberni, a Vancouver Island mill town. The drive to Port Alberni is spectacular and highly recommended as it takes you through Cathedral Grove, one of the oldest stands of virgin timber.

Anyway, one of my relatives lived in Port Alberni and always drove the fanciest car. After stumbling across this documentary, I now know why!

Yup, it is a documentary done using the real individuals to play their own parts. Phenomenal and profoundly moving.

Drum brakes, ghetto television, and real cake for me. That's what I learned on the forums today. And I have to change the way I fly. Jim

Thank you for that FaN. I think I will continue to bumble along. Pick up a few new things, continue with some of the old stuff. Use my hands a little more. Try a little harder at sharing. That's what I learned on the forums today. Sort of like Dr. Buscaglia's table. Jim

Jim, I was not criticizing you. Your chair is worthy of Papa Buscaglia's table. Many people think they know everything; a thirst for knowledge is unconscionable to them.

I was also thinking how obsolete "looking something up in the encyclopedia" has become since the internet.

Somewhere here I saw something about love. If anyone wants to listen to four delightful stuffed animals, to be precise, Carbear, Ferdie, Dawg, and Muffie, here is a place with lots of stuff on love.

Never entered my head for a second. Your confirmation of my route was heart warming and I rather like the company. Thank you.
And I agree on looking something up. One takes the path of least resistance. I could not convince the local Sally Ann to take my complete set of Funk and Wagnells. And they had never heard of the Canadian Encyclopedia. No chance there. So I snoop periodically. But they did sell me a missing "Blood, sweat, and tears" for two bucks so now I have two complete sets of Churchill's WW2 history. One for each son. Must be even-steven. I think I will change my name. How does "Rambler" fit? Also reminds me of my dad's Nash. And I will replace my Morris avatar with something related to my Airstream. Like a heart. Got to go. Hockey Night in Canada. Jim
