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.

Eee, I'm a light-weight. I once got up to 102 MPH in a very remote area, and the car felt like it would have topped out around 115. But the thought occurred that if my car broke down it was 20 miles between houses to get help.
