The rest of it had little to do with you specifically and the overall attitude of timidity and nervousness that is so prevalent in this thread as well as other threads that address safety. Odd that on this board it mos frequently comes back to safety- while so rarely coming back to adventure. Sad really.
And tell us about your adventures.
