There are lots of things to worry about. There are also a lot of people who don't pay attention to the potential dangers. I'm a guy who spend most of my work life (and home life too) thinking of the ways that Murphy could show up and bite me in the behind. Not trying to sound like a boy scout but, be prepared. Be responsible, and think, just think. Use that noodle between your ears. Everybody is six inches from being a genius.
Truth is, if it happens it happens and you can't stop it. If all the potentially bad possibilities keep you from going....don't go. If you don't go...you might want to consider changing that screen name.
Buck up little camper...GO FOR IT!
