This is a short post soon to be followed by a longer post with an answer. Once again I did not skydive this weekend. That's like four opportunities I have tried but it was too windy (more than 14 mph). I survived Broad Peak with a death to summit ratio of 9%, although I did not summit. I ride a motorcycle, at least a little bit. Plus I have spent enough time alone in the wilderness to encounter bears in the dark. However, I have never drank so much alcohol that I blacked out or made bad decisions I will forever regret.
The question stands, what is my risk tolerance? How does one measure a risk tolerance anyway? Is there a clear risk and reward relationship? We will think about this before I write a follow up article. Feel free to express your thoughts below.
