My regulator failed while I was scuba diving and I learned the true meaning of the term “panic.”
WHOA! Did you have a backup reg that worked? Man, I can't imagine. Luckily I never dove deep enough or long enough that a rapid surface would give me trouble if I needed to do so... but it can get pretty hairy pretty quick. I know I've run my tanks down low enough a couple times it felt like I was pulling to get a breath. I don't want to do that again.

One of the dumbest things I ever did. A group of friends in college used to race mountain bikes. We would take a 16 foot ladder to the north end of Red Rock Canyon and carry our bikes up and ride the trails up there. One misty day we got the hairbrained idea to ride the south rim. It’s misty and the trail is barely wide enough to walk much less ride a bike. Straight drop to the bottom if you make a mistake. My buddy Damon was in front of me and his front wheel slipped on a wet rock. Luckily he had the where with all to just plant his butt on the ground as his bike went over the side. Probably a 50-60 foot drop. It wasn’t me but very well could have been. I get a nervous feeling just telling the story.
