  1. Jason and I are travelling to lhr from the sw tomorrow morning. Looking forward to it, hope the weather behaves.
  2. Any ideas on next weeks forecast for us tour 2ers?
  3. Oh. Is there a policy out there that covers this?! Sounds like a deal breaker..
  4. Hi there, I was advised by our storm chasing 'lords and masters' to purchase the sport+ package, so it looks as though you're onto a winner already. Ben
  5. I see this camera is in Currys and in stock. I may purchase it. I know nothing about cameras but need one for Tour 2. Would I need to buy the SIGMA 70-300 mm f/4-5.6 DG Telephoto Zoom Lens that is recommended with the camera? it costs an extra £95 but i'm not sure what the benefits are. Cheers.
  6. Oooo, do tell. I'm looking for one myself before I embark on tour 2.
  7. Hi, I'm Ashleigh. I am also going on Tour 2 from Heathrow. Just wondered if you booked flights yet?

      Yeah I noticed the change in flight tikes. May work to our advantage. My dogtag ins was about £80. Make sure you get the right package, I think its sport plus as it covers storm chasing. Have a look on their website. I need to start looking for a half decent camera soon, maybe best to wait until the Jan sales!

      Sorted with insurance. Thanks for mentioning them. Jan sales may not be a bad idea. I have a bridge camera - haven't really used it for weather as much, mainly wildlife. So, I'm going to give it a whirl. I'm not an expert when it comes to cameras, but this one takes some great photos.

      Hi, a fellow tour 2er has created a WhatsApp group for people going on tour 2 and on our ba flight. If you're interested in speaking to others before we meet a lhr, send me your mob number and I'll ask them to add you. Ben

  8. Hi Jason I assume you enjoyed the storms last night?! I live in Melksham and as you'll see from the link below, we got hammered. They started to develop at 7pm and were at their full strength at 10:pm before dying off at midnight. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-29273833 Regarding your question on the booking process for the tours, it's very simple. Select the tour you'd like, set up your payment plan and wait for the feedback from the Netweather team. They can help with any questions you may have. I was advised to purchase storm chasing insurance through Dogtag. If you do decide to book a tour then make sure you get the correct insurance, which Paul can advise you on. Ben
  9. Hi All. I'll get us started - Tour 2! The wife is letting me loose on my own. Big mistake. I'm a Storm Chasing Newbie from Melksham, Wiltshire. A bit of a country boy, so hopefully i'll fit in the Mid West for the 10 days I'm there. BA flight prices seem to be hovering around £600 (LHR - DFW). Worth hanging on for a potential sale or grab them now? I was thinking about flying in the day before and staying locally in a hotel. Speak up if you have any ideas / advice (especially if you're on tour 2 and are thinking about flights, etc.) Ben
  10. All booked for Tour 2. Very excited. I'm not going to sleep tonight! If anyone is going on Tour 2 feel free PM me (or anyone else for that matter)!. I'll be flying from LHR so if anyone wants to meet at the airport (assuming we're on the same flight) that would be great. Ben
