About Roy Sullivan

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 no injuries. On September 28 1983 he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound over an unrequited love. 

Sullivan's List is for those who don't want to wait for lightning to strike but want to explore the world right now.
