My hubby's hobby is offroading vehicles. He went a few weeks ago and had something break that cost about $200 to repair (money that we don't have). This weekend he rode with a friend. He just called to tell me, "Honey, I'm ok, but Juan rolled the Jeep with us in it and we were trapped until someone came to get us out."
I freaked! He could have been killed! He says I am overreacting, but I say NO MORE OFFROADING!!!!!
I have seen pictures of hubby in his own vehicle with three tires off the ground! With all the stress we have right now, this is not something that I want to worry over. Now, everytime he goes on a trip, I am going to be consumed with worry.
What would your reaction be?

You need to sit down with him and ask him if the risk reward is worth it to him. Is off roading worth being paralyzed and not being able to work. Is it worth a broken back or leg that will keep him out of work for a period of time. DH was wanting to be involved with some risky things about a year ago and we sat down and talked about all of that. He decided that the reward he got from playing with his friends was not worth the risk of potentially putting his family in a trailer park. If he lost his job due to accident that is exactly where we would end up.
