Here's my take on ridiculously dangerous mountain passes: If you're not Frodo trying to take a ring into Mordor and you are simply a tourist that greatly underestimates the likelihood of a landslide, then you probably should stay home.

Tavarish is the founder of APiDA Online and writes about buying and selling cool cars on the internet. He owns the world's cheapest Mercedes S-Class, a graffiti-bombed Lexus, and he's the only Jalopnik author that has never driven a Miata. He also has a real name that he didn't feel was journalist-y enough so he used a pen name and this was the best he could do.
