Writer's Block: Cliff hanger

What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done? Are you glad you did it? Would you do it again?


I once did 123 MPH (198 KPH) on I-15 in my Caprice (speed verified by GPS).  And I didn't even reach the top end, I could have gone faster.  (I was in a fairly remote area, 8 lanes wide with a large median and good shoulders, very little traffic and a good line of sight, so it wasn't totally reckless.)

I'd like to find out just how fast my car could go, but I don't think I'll be trying it on the freeway again.  I'd like to go to Muroc or Bonneville or someplace long and flat and just put the pedal to the metal.

Hehe. I did 145mph in my old 1973 Jaguar. I don't remember whether that was before or after the front subframe broke from fatigue. Lucky it didn't happen at the same time! I also hit that same speed in one of my Audis. Both cars were more than happy to cruise along at that speed. Rock steady :-)
