Roy C. Sullivan (1912-1983) was a U.S. park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. During his life Roy was struck seven times by lightning. The first time was in 1942 when he was hiding from a thunderstorm in a fire lookout tower. It burned a half-inch strip all along his right leg, hit his toe, and left a hole in his shoe but he was alive. The other 6 times he was hit by lightning he almost had noinjuries. On September 28 1983 he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound over an unrequited love.
After every strike Roy C. Sullivan talked about making a list of all the amazing events and places in the world he wanted to experience. He never actually made this list. Sullivan’s List is for those people that don't want to wait for lightning to strike but want to explore the world right now.
