Re: Circumnavigators vs Mt Everest climbers

I can't speak for others. I found riding a motorcycle across the country is more dangerous than sailing around the world. Apparently, my wife feels the same. She would rather see me sailing solo around the world than having me ride the bike from Ocean City MD to Fisherman Wharf in SFO via Highway 50, even though it is far cheaper and taking less time.

Sailing is far safer than years before if you pay attention.
