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.

I got my '97 Buick up to 109mph on US-50 in middle-of-nowhere Nevada once back in 2008. It wouldn't go past that though, as I think it has some sort of speed limiter. It didn't feel like it would have been able to get going much faster though anyway.
