As I have frequently commented on here, I fail to see what is so enticing about lying in a hospice while a pretty nurse changes my pee bag.
But think of all the flying you’ll miss if you die on the way to that bed.
I’ve done a few dangerous things in my life, and my approach has always been to mitigate the risks, so I can do some more in the future.
For me that’s slightly different to my Uncle’s attitude, he’d been told “no flying, it might kill you”, a good friend of mine took him flying a couple of times, involving discussions about what would happen if he died!
He survived the flying and died a couple of weeks later of the terminal cancer.
He had nothing to lose, you have something to lose.
I have no urge to be old and decrepit and alive, but I don’t want my journey to end while I’m still fit enough to fly.
Plus, I’ve not done a parachute jump yet. I need to do that at some point, imagine missing the chance to do that.
