I didn't have the latest version of the book, so it did not say to turn back if wet
It always said that AFAIK.

Scariest moments to me are where you are in a situation that other people there passed from the same thing.

With that said my top two are probably:

1. A wave on a beach in Cali that pushed me under and spun me around - a man died from that wave.

2. Being swarmed by killer bees in Palm Springs - a man and his wife died from the same swarm that day.

I do a lot of driving and know not to mess with the truckers, after a long trip with about a hour left to go a trucker decided to drive me off the road I didn't do anything to start up with him I was pulling up along him on the left lane and he started moving into me so I flash and honk the guy kept going I was on the shoulder slamming in the brakes and he kept going into the shoulder b"h I was able to fall behind him but I watched him go into the shoulder if I would have still been alongside him I would have been crushed into the barrier.

It may be illegal to have flares (not sure) but it sure is worth keeping two next to the jack.
I'm not who you think I am.

So you should have shot him with the flares.
