in all seriousness i went to school with a guy that got hit by lighting on the south side of hood he had trouble with his right foot after thats where i think it exited crampons most likely did not help.

anyway in his mid twenties six or so years after his wife found him dead in the driveway while shooting hoops with his son heart attack. always wondered about the strike as the cause.

Dang, now you got me worried about shooting hoops with my kids after loony hiking. Since I can
