Re: the 12th Man

There actually is a book entitled "The Twelfth Man" by Scott and Haug that provides a detailed account of this story with emphasis on the people who both betrayed the mission and helped him escape. The film is "based" on this book and sticks fairly close to the story, with the ad...

Film: "The Skimaker"

I did a search to see whether this link has been posted previously. It didn't appear to be but apologies if it is "old news": An interesting film for your viewing pleasure. Eight millimetres of sidecut, not double, not "one and a half" but zero camber and willow bindings: https:/...
