What i haven't been able to find is clothing allowed and additional items provided by the show. I do believe they are giving a tarp. On previous seasons additional tarps were part of the contestants 10 items and I'm not seeing that this year.

You're sort of right that the lightening rods were not put on barns to keep strikes away from adjacent buildings but that turned out to be the result.  If the adjacent building is close enough to the other structure there is a much smaller chance of it being struck than the barn.  There is some formula to calculate the distance that involves the height of the lightening rods and the distance away the adjacent structure can be.

Your comment about ungrounded metal roofs is worth pondering.  Most of the metal roofs are not grounded unless having a downspout off of the gutter counts (which it doesn't as it isn't buried in the ground in most instances).  Does adding a lightening rod system to a house with a metal roof make the whole roof a lightening rod? It might.

In Max's case he might be at higher risk of a strike just because he is on a ridge.

That sounds like fun!  I'll have to see what resources exist in my new home area around CDA once I get settled in.  Maybe I can try something like that.
