It would depend on the book!

You know, I've written a lot of "trip reports" about my outdoor
adventures; over 130 since 1984...

I usually try to open these reports with interesting sentences.  Here
are some of my favorites, in random order (alphabetical by filenames).
Fun fun, I've never looked at them this way before...
