Being completely honest with this statement…Craig is lucky to be alive today. Immediately upon his return from Bears Ears, a massive lightning strike decimated the off-grid ranch in Gunnison. Craig was in the house when it happened and witnessed lightning bolts of energy pulsing through the air in the living room area.
