I have three, never done since. Once was enough.

I went down part of the Colorado River in a Kayak for over 2.5 hours with a party of others. The water was very shallow and full of water moccasin's. I got caught on a sandbank and at one point the boat tipped over, never been in a Kayak before, never again.

I Zip Lined over a tree canopy on one of the Caribbean Islands. When we got back to where we started their was a sheer drop back to our starting point. Each of us slid down a rope we were attached too which braked just before you hit the ground. Never again.

I snorkeled off a Caribbean island. We were close to the Clipper Sailboat we were travelling on. I looked down at one point to see a relatively large shark swimming way below. Not something I repeated.

Interesting but potentially dangerous experiences. I was surprised that I agreed to do them.

    Turns out using the cross walks when the walk symbol was flashing when I lived in Tucson Arizona was far more dangerous than it should have been

    My most dangerous work injury which I was lucky to not have any permanent damage. I was cutting stretch film off a pallet and it covered the end of the the platform I was on so I stepped on air and fell 8 feet hitting a concrete floor almost head first.

    Then it just the fun stuff that happens when you drive cars on ice and snow. Or ice you didn't know was there.

    Raising a child is akin to knowing you're getting fired in 18 years and having to train your replacement without actively sabotaging them.

      Climbing down the entrance to a massive cave in woods near my house. The entrance was 90 ft, pit straight down and using a broken fence I scaled down to the first ledge.

      Nearly crapped my pants I was so scared!!

        It is not dangerous naturally, We make it own dangerous. It is up to us and our partner, to either make it happier or sad.

    Me has to have been when l was about 10 years old and back then l loved matches or give me a packet of new matches and l was in heaven.

    So l thought why not go up to the haystack, (full of hay on a warm day) and light some hay and see what happens.

    So l lit a small amount near the haystack, and it took off with far more varosity than l thought.

    I quickly realized that being metres away from an almost full haystack, (this one had a tin roof and was about 10 to 15 bales high at the time) could have easily caught alight and put it out.

    After that scare l was more respectful of fire.

    Absolute worst fear I've had was parachuting out of a plane....once a long time ago. I was tipsy when I agreed to do it (a friend was a skydiver and talked me into it)...I was too stubborn to admit how frightened I was when the time came. Do not jump out of a perfectly good plane...just don't.

    Most recent fright was a 'hike' in the mountains in Colorado 2 years ago with my 6'4" grandson who is half mountain goat. To me, a 'hike' is a walk....to him, a 'hike' is a climb. I don't like heights...but he was so proud of me for going with him I didn't want to disappoint him. We ended up sitting on a huge rock that hung out over a really tall cliff with him chattering about the mountains and me convinced I was going to die.
