That you ever did???<br>I got this idea from Marg vacation, Her daughter going up in a Ultralite.<br><br>I have done many stunts in my life and I sometimes wonder why I am not dead/injured along time ago.<br><br>
I went skydiving... and I'm deathly afraid of heights. The scariest part was actually jumping out of the plane. Standing in an open door on a plane waiting to jump out was enough to make the guy in front of me cry like a baby (he had to be 40+ years old). <br><br>I couldn't believe I did it... What's more unbelievable is I liked it so much that I jumped 10 more times that year and got certified. All in all, I believe I got around 20-25 jumps under my belt before I got it through my thick skull that "I could actually die!" <br><br>It finally hit me when just after my last jump (I got Janet to go with me one time before we got married), one of the instructors I jumped with my first time died when his chute didn't open... shortly after I had got married and felt like I actually had something to lose now, so I stopped.<br><br><br>[color:red]What? I don't understand. What?</font color=red>

The craziest thing I ever did was "jump" a big hole in the ice on my snowmobile. The key is not to panic and keep full throttle and you'll make it across the water. My legs got a little wet but at least I didn't sink. I would have been a goner if I went in the freezing water with a snowmobile suit on.<br><br><br><br>
This will show how pathetic I am. The craziest thing I did happened when I was about 5 or 6 years old. My cousins and I were playing cowboys and Indians on a jungle gym. I was right at the top of the contraption when suddenly my one cousin shot me dead. So of course, I had to do what any self-respecting corpse would do--I dropped down like a stone. And fell on top of a cement slab with my left forearm taking almost all the weight. That was one shattered bone, boys and girls! <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Well Carp - I have several categories of "crazy" in my personal records:<br><br>Crazy adventurous<br>Crazy stupid<br>Crazy wild<br>Crazy risking life and limb<br><br>Most of these entries are probably not suited for a younger audience. I think then that craziest stunt type thing I ever did would have occured circa 1976 while I was enroute from NYC to Quebec on bicycle. After struggling to make it to the top of some steep mountain or other in upstate New York (without getting off and walking) - I went down the other side in the "look Ma, no hands" style for as long as I could stand it. It got hard to keep balanced as my speed increased so I chickened out pretty quickly.<br><br>
Okay - does going down a 45 degree incline at 40+ miles an hour with 50 pounds of gear on a bike without holding on the handlebars make it sound a little more like a crazy stunt?<br><br>I didn't say I thought it was the craziest THING I ever did...<br><br>
