    Pattern Language is a very interesting book! If you are building a house, remodeling, or laying out a new space, you need to read Pattern Language.

    I don't fully agree with everything ISG posts (though I agree with a lot of it), but this article is definitely worth the time imo, esp. if you're prone to thinking critically about training and preparedness:

    https://www.integratedskillsgroup.c...-2-how-to-rise-above-unconscious-incompetence

    "...Once we've started to understand that often our efforts are dangerously narrow in focus, we can start looking at a few elements we can use to guide how we train and live.
    1. What skills provide the best base over the widest spectrum of situations?
    2. What skills require the greatest investment in time and maintenance?
    3. What skills could you develop for specific, low-probability situations? Generic, high-probability situations?

    I already read The Final Frontiersman, about Heimo Korth of The Last Alaskans show.
    Just got the 2nd book, Braving It. Hopefully it's good also.

    Right now Terminal List. Last month I read Incident Safety Officer and Health and Safety Officer NFA manuals for my Safety Officer Cert. I don’t recommend the last two.
