Probably walking to the house from the barn through the trees (about 200 yards) when it was pitch black outside back when I was 6 or 7. I just knew something was going to eat me.

The very first time I flew anywhere, I flew alone and clung to the armrests for the entire flight.

Asking a girl out on a date. I had an almost debilitating shyness as a kid.

That's because there were. They are still there but we just can't see them when we get older.

When I was around 15 years old and I practiced all summer back flips and layouts in a pool and on a trampoline. Then the winter came and it was time to do it on skis. I remember how terrified I was to land on my back, or even my head. It was only about 15 feet in the air, but I did get around and landed on my skis.

Jeesh I don't remember being afraid of anything when I was younger. Now that I am older driving in a busy place frightens me. Maybe I will try and overcome that fear, that is alwats best, getting something done that seemed impossible.

Jumping off of a cliff that was easily 100' high into the water. After that, I couldn't stop it was so fun.

There were quite a few things which frightened me, when I was a little kid.
But I dared after some hesitations.

Most of the things I do now. I have a certain level of anxiety every time I have to do something for the first time. After that, I'm fine.
