Damn, Sherm, what great stuff. Now I will throw my video camera into the nearest ocean.

Love this video! I've enjoyed all the videos that you've posted. We've travelled to some of the places you've shared videos of--fun to see it from your perspective!

Thank you and look forward to the next one!

Thanks so much for watching! Remember to share and subscribe!!!
I'm working on a couple more videos; 10 lessons from our first month of full-timing and Yellowstone/Grand Tetons visit (10 days of free camping!)....the videos run about 10 or 12 days behind our actual travel. We are currently in southern Utah!

Take care!

Don't do that! I just try to learn from other YouTubers and I use a great program to edit, Wondershare Filmora ($49) that makes editing a breeze. I tried several and Wondershare was the first one I found that was intuitive!

Agreed! But it would be much more convenient to run downhill to the car! It seemed like the longer we ran the further away the car was and the steeper the hill got!

As you already know, hiking (or just being outside) during a thunder storm is ill-advised. To date this year in the US, there have been 20 reported fatalities attributed to lighting strikes (source: National Weather Service). Interesting to me is that they are mostly in the southern states. I would have thought there would be some in the mountainous Western states:

A few reasonably good references on back-country lightning risk management can be found here:
