I saw a couple crews last year that looked like they were having a great
time.  A couple had signed up for the summer.  Once when we were taking a
break with lightening looming they came by but wouldn't stop long enough for
me to take a picture.

After a few minutes we also quickly gathered our gear and started down off
the mountain behind them dropping about 500 feet before the sun came out
again.  Since I had been reluctant to go anywhere, figuring I had a better
chance of hitting the lottery than getting zapped, I wasn't all that pleased
to bushwack straight back uphill.

Oh well, better save than dead!
