I get out of the hammock, and go down the mountainside as far as I can. I try to pick an area where any nearby trees are much shorter than the average height of trees in the area, and then squat down as low as possible, wrapping my arms around my knees to improve the odds that any current going through my body doesn't go through my chest. If I'm expecting a storm, I try to set my hammock up in as protected a location as possible, and when the storm wakes me up, I'm out of the hammock.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!!!
