one of my fears is that I'll be in an exposed spot, my hat blows off, and I'll lunge for it without thinking!!!

Rick did loose his hat and lunged for it- but luckily it was before the Hangover trail! After that he clipped it to his pack. Last week I pulled the binoculars out of my pack and a small lens cover fell out and rolled straight to a cliff edge! He went right after it, as I said “let it go, let it go….” Whew… it happens so fast!

@swmalone - yah, some have no fear! there’s a small number of people capable of riding that trail. We were pretty surprised to see so many yesterday.

this kind of thing for real almost gives me a panic attack. years ago I was on the knife-edge between the N and S summits of Nebo and my hat blew off and what did I do? you know what I almost did.

I didn't have no fear but I tended to push the boundaries of my limitations, but after breaking my back high speeds and/or exposure tend to give me a touch of vertigo and give me a mini panic attack. It has gotten better but apparently I learned I can get the feeling vicariously through videos like the ones you posted.

Hope that biker holding their chin is OK. Endo's can mess you up bad. Don't ask how I know.
