Go for it n9!! There's a T-shirt I've seen that says something like "you go sailing, you could get hit by a storm and die; you could capsize and die; you could fall off the boat and get eaten by a shark. ... You stay home and you could fall off the sofa and die" or something like that. Your point is exactly like that - things can happen anywhere. I'd argue that with proper planning and attention, this life isn't vastly riskier than many other choices, and the rewards are incomparable.
Would you rather live your life or live your fears?
