This is a question Near Death Experiences

Last time I crashed my bike, as I flew through the air towards the car in front of me not much went through my head apart from "You idiot". No tunnels, no lights to stay away from, no smiling family members beckoning to me.

Surely you've had a better near-death experience?

This was my worst camping trip ever.
Went camping in lakes with two mates.
Got lost on a mountain and it was going misty so we decided to set up camp.
Everything was fine until i realised i'd forgotten me sleeping bag. I didn't want to let my mates know cos i was a tad embaressed, so i thought sod it. I remember it being the coldest night of my life (even with two pairs of clothes on, jumpers etc.)

Anyway I survived the night and woke up in a miserble mood with back ache and a stiff neck.
As we were descending the mountain, I didn't realise I had left my trainers on (my boots were in my rucksack) and proceeded to slip and slide on the grass - downwards. Fast. I couldn't stop running and hit a rock with my ankle and literally flipped off a short ledge down to the rocks. Mid air I remember thinking 'My mates didn't even try to grab me. Bastards!'. Luckily, the drop wasn't too far (about ten feet!) and I landed on my rucksack on the hard ground. I battered my legs on a rock but miraculously i was unharmed. I then proceeded to sulk all the way tom the bottom of the mountain.
That's not all. Later in the day, we all had a girlie tiff and I decided i'm gonna take MY map and go home. It was about a twelve mile walk back to Windermere and it was absolutely pissing down with rain. About an hour later I decided to climb over a metal fence as it was the most direct route to Windermere. I didn't realise it was an electric fence (i was oblivious to the warning signs due to sulking). After receiving a mild electric shock I just lay on my back in a shitty field in the lakes and rememembered thinking 'what's the point'!

Anyway, I found my way home and i'm alive as far as I know. Sorry for Lengthness.
