Sounds like a thru hiker to me!!! Not only did we hike in
thunderstorms,,,but we also hiked in a couple of snow storms,,,an ice storm
(a large piece of ice fell on my arm and about broke it), a few rain storms
(no lightening), extremely hot (over 110 degrees) weather (ran out of
water!!), and oh yeah,,,we had a couple of "perfect" days for hiking. KC
