Don't fear death.

Don't worry about it. Just get the proper training (MSF). Wear the proper gear. Ride to enjoy the ride. You never know when your time is up. Let go and just in enjoy life.

$5.00 to park a car?? Did I read that right? That is per hour or is it per day? This is another reason why I am glad I don't live or work in the city.
