Warning Warning Warning

It's time to warn you that you are doing very nice things until now but very dangerous.
Some would say it's the life. I would answer shorter path to death is not life. What you should do is to do a hard break and ask yourself why you continuously put your life in danger.
Have done dangerous things is great, to not carry on is better.
I'm sorry, i don't know you, but i know the issue when doing too much during a too long time.
As said one of the best mountaineer our time, life is not on mountain tops but down where humains are living.
Hope i shocked you, kindly.

I bet when she's driving down the highway of
Life and her "check engine" light comes on,
she completely ignores it and overtakes the
pitiful humans living in their smoggy cities.

you had luck!
I experienced that many many years ago on the summit of Gamsjoch, Karwendel range, Austria. I was asleep on the summit and woke up because the whole hair felt like being full of ants and then I felt my hair stand upright (yes I still had full hair in those days :-)).
There was a thunderstorm approaching and I did my fastest descent ever without taking a selfie first. Hail and lightning chased me down that mountain in less than 1 hour (1200 m of altitude difference).
Cheers, Michael

Me too

On top of Shasta in 2010 it went from clear to hard sleet in a couple of minutes. I heard a buzzing and realized my what was about to happen and got off the Summit Pinnacle in an extremely expeditious manner. Great illustration of this. Thanks,
