Poll: Which is scarier and more dangerous?

I'm serious. Climbing Mount Wilson didn't scare me one bit, but you Denverites freak me out on the roads. :twisted:

So which one is scarier?

Scott:
You've been out in the sticks too long. I can see how coming to the "big city" must freak you out. But imagine how the Denverites feel when you Craig Heads come to town, moseyin' along in your pick-up trucks, doin' the speed limit for gods sake! and generally being a hazard to all who feel it's their god given right to drive 15 over the limit. :D

I've grown up in Denver, while it is probably more dangerous than climbing 4th class fourteeners, Renobob is right, these country boys dont fit in when we want to do 75 down I-25. :D

Yeah, but if I was to go 80 down the freeway, they would pull me over. Redneck profiling.

I'm with Scott. Driving in the big cities scares the crap out of me. I don't look forward to my trip to Dallas next month.

Running down Humbolt in a lightning storm had my undivided
attention, but still not as scary as Denver traffic.

If you think Denver is scary, try Woodman and Acadamy in CO Springs - Class 5.12 driving.

As an American, your chances of dieing in an automobile accident are 1 in 84 and your chances of dieing from falling (by any reason or cause) are 1 in 218. Keep in mind though; most Americans are in cars everyday.

Chances of dieing at all are 1 in 1.

Nope, this time I was actually on my Harley. As I said, Redneck profiling.
