I just found out these existed about 3 years ago, but it's saved me from being carried off.

The engine on the right side of the plane.





ETA, possibly the e-brake on my car two weeks ago. The brake pedal felt like popping a large piece of bubble-wrap just before it went to the floor, heading downhill towards a busy intersection.

Driving a car with excellent side-impact protection saved my life when I was 20.

When you step out of a car that has been bent into a horseshoe, it changes how you think about cars.

Never buy a car that you're not willing to be in a major wreck in.

A wading belt.  

Balls and persistence when I was kayaking on the lower Columbia River in mid winter once.  Going out where I did that day was dumb.  Shot a crapload of ducks though.

My firefighting gear when I was caught in a flashover.

My fire helmet, when I landed on my head, after jumping out a window 20' up getting away from the aforementioned flashover!

Radios, armor, and teammates that love to completely fucking wreck people.  

And I guess my boys, since I stopped dipping for them, and that shit would probably have killed me one day.  Thanks kids!

Kawasaki motorcycle, an Arai full.face.helmet, and my Guardian Angel.

Last Tuesday was the 31st anniversary of my driving a motorcycle into a stopped car at 60 miles an hour.

My Guardian Angel saved me eight other times when I really should have not survived the event.

It was actually two, one I was carrying and the other my buddy had.  Well worth the investment for any back country traveler.
