  1. They actually pick you up from the terminal rather than car rentals. You need to phone them though and ask to be picked up, they'll ask what terminal and then give you rough idea of where to wait (between gate 22-26 for example). Usually just head outside when you pick your bags up and you'll see the signs and buses picking everyone up. You can get a cab but it is expensive for such a short journey, about $25!


  2. Hi Jodie,

    I actually used my phone a lot the past 2 seasons I've been out as the quality really is good these days. In the heat of the moment though using a digital slr sometimes isn't the best option if you're pretty new to the game. Lots of fumbling around with settings on it and head down looking at the camera rather than what's happening in front of you and you could miss it all! Don't let that put you off though as some time spent learning how to use it could give you some great results. Mind you, Paul has been trying with his for over 10 years and is still failing... :rofl:


  3. The annual get together of like minded weather geeks! Plenty of food, loads of drink and also plenty of storm porn!

     

    This year it's in that GREAT country called WALES :pThere's plenty of room for camping in the garden and we also have loads of space in the house. So bring a sleeping bag and we'll find room for you :DOur post code is SY24 5HJ. Local train stations are Aberystwyth and Machynlleth and there are buses that drop off in Talybont. I'll be doing a few pick ups I would imagine though so can give anyone a lift as long as there's room :) Euston to Machynlleth is around the 4 hours mark.You don't have to have been on a storm chase to come either. These BBQ's are a great way of just meeting up with other weather enthusiasts, and who knows at the end of the night you may well want to come on a chase next year!Any questions just ask, and hopefully we'll see y'all in a few weeks! :clap:


  4. What a day! Started out from Wall, SD and had a target area somewhere around central Nebraska. After checking data on the move we could see the moisture surging up near to Thedford with backing surface winds. A lot of waiting was needed today and finally at around 7:30 pm the first tops broke the cap near to Broken Bow. Headed straight south east and punched the core across the top. Some big hailstones were taken, really hard ones too and we were greeted with a simply stunning LP supercell moving at a snails pace. Got a great view on top of a hill for about 20 minutes then jogged east where we got some amazing lightning shots with the skinny updraught :D The cell to our north west then became tornado warned so off we went. Ended up sat between the two cells with a great light show to finish the night. Made our way down to Kearney ready for what looks to be a great set up tomorrow for some tubes!
