On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in our hair
The three of us cramned in the front seat
On a Toyota dare.

A voice in the distance said
Canjon de Tajo was sweet
But boy you better take care
This narrow two lane will bring you dispair

Welcome to the on comming bus passing bus
On the crest of a hill
Rushing to a head on collision
Or a shoulder of nill

I'm thinking of a solo scuba dive off some rocks on the Big Sur coast. Scary and strangely beautiful, but I'm here to talk about it. Quite a different sense of fear than any climbing I have done.

The rest is easy.

Death will be a piece of cake that will allow time for a little relaxation with absolutely no interruptions.

I spent an entire winter snowboarding serious backcountry avalanche terrain in Chile (The Santa Theresita Ridge)- with no probe, no shovel, no beacon, (no training in any of those things anyways), no health insurance, no helmet, and often times alone

it was rad

and i was lucky

Tending bar for a living.

In over 19 years tending bar in less than genteel joints, I've been in more violent fights than I can count ( I consider a fight to be violent when at least one participant goes to the hospital ).

I retired undefeated!

Dangerous, scared shitless, or just plain stupid?

got caught in a riptide when I was a wee lad(that was scary, and probably dangerous)
some of the mountain bike trails I've ridden are dangerous, especially if you lean the wrong way.
I lead a route a few years ago that was dangerous, but was too scared to think about it.

Actually, the most dangerous situation I've ever been in was at Rustys bar, in Bishop.

In retrospect, the most dangerous things I've ever done involved accepting rides from sketchballs while hitchhiking in the states, or suspect 'taxi' rides in Central America. Close calls.

I've willingly put myself in danger skiing steep lines and climbing, been hurt badly doing both. But, the human element is by far the most dangerous.

I'm one lucky son of a gun, knock on wood.

I thought about leaving a post on Mountain Project asking for my nut, hank of webbing and a sentimental non-locking biner to be returned in exchange for woo woo vibes and beer.


Had to back off as I don't want Locker to kick my ass.


Close one.

That's okay it's the southern hemisphere so avalanches run uphill.

For me it was working as a bike messenger for 4 years in NYC, close calls with death on a daily basis, been hit by cars at speed 5 times but only bleeding enough to go to the ER 3 times. Fun times.

While in college, ran the Philadelphia subway tracks between stations. Could have died very easily and stupidly.

I was going to say it was soloing Snake Dike, never having done the route, without a route description or topo, but then I remembered all the stupid things I did in college, the biggest of which was getting a ride home from a really drunk friend on his motorcycle. I look back on that and cringe.

Tending bar and dealing the poker game in an illicit after hours joint in Brooklyn in the mid 80's, right when the price of the Peruvian Marching Powder bottomed out. Sometimes it seemed like every sewer in Flatbush emptied at the front door.
Commuting into the city during rush hours can be a death wish, but it's all good once I'm on the job.
