My 27 year old son loves a storm. Although he is usually a pretty safe guy, electricity in the air is magnetic to him. It would be great to have statistics and/or real life experiences to show him how much a lightning rod a canoe or kayak really is. Or is it?
How about tents with aluminum versus plastic poles? With lightning flashing around you - where are you really the safest when outside?
It would be great to have some real authoritative advice on the subject. I am not bashing safety warnings, just looking for specifics. My son is a computer programmer, he pretty much doubts everything he can't experience firsthand. I'd like to see him avoid that.
