14 Days of chasing storms on Tornado Alley, summer of 2018 led by myself and our storm chasing guides.
This tour will begin in Denver Colorado and will return to Denver International Airport. We will begin our journey on the morning of the 20st May so we will all need to spend a night at an airport hotel in Denver on the 20th May.
This tour will cover every available storm setup on the Great Plains of the States and even into Southern Canada if necessary. We expect to have storms most days to chase but if we encounter periods of fine weather we will look to move towards National or State parks or spend time photographing the beautiful old buildings dotted around the wonderful Mid West.
We have two guides leading us with years of experience forecasting and chasing storms on the plains. Saftey will be our biggest priority and we will never put ourselves in dangerous positions whilst navigating these storms. That being said thunderstorms and in particular severe thunderstorms are volatile and also not completely predictable. We will all need to listen to our guides at all times whilst observing severe weather and be in a position to get out of harms way as and when necessary. We will not chase storms into or even around urban areas as the risks are far higher in these regions in particular the Oklahoma City Metro Area.
Road trips can and will be long at times, expect to drive anything upto 1000 miles in a day. We will do absolutely everything we can do safely to get ourselves to the right place at the right time. Please make sure you are open minded and prepared to do whatever it takes to do this. We will break up road trips at every available opportunity although some days time will be extremely limited in order to catch the developing storm systems.
Accommodation is based in single occupancy rooms but no accommodation will be booked in advance as we will have no idea where we will spend each night until we know the weather situation for each particular day.
This is an adventure of a lifetime and one which will bring the group of us closer together as we experience this wonderful phenomena in a wonderful part of the USA.
