2016 Storm Chase Tour - Which Tour are you on?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Am on Tour 2. I went last year and had literally the best 10 days of my life, new camera this year and I cant wait to go back. I'm flying the day before on Monday 16th at 1150 from Heathrow, 1550 into Dallas, and back on 28th May at 1800 from Dallas to Heathrow.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again, and bagging some more tornadoes!

Mike.

18:00 or 18:10? If it's the latter I'm on the same return flight.

The next 15 weeks will fly by! As usual will be around on all 4 tours and hoping this year to reach more dizzy heights after nabbing 27 Tornadoes last year and coming out on top out of all tour groups worldwide for the 2nd year running.

Expecting a similar season to 2015 with a declining El Nino phase in the middle to late spring

Looks very healthy in the Plains for a change. I'm feeling pretty optimistic.

As long as it's not half underwater this time...

Hi Paul!  Haha not really, unfortunately. I think, "happy Fourth of July" and then, "thank you", is the longest conversation we've had in a while...

The team will meet you at the airport (more info on where etc in the info pack you'll get a couple of weeks before departure). Then once all the guests are in, it's a case of either staying locally in a hotel, heading up the road elsewhere to a hotel nearer the chase target for the following day(s), or if the storm gods play ball, maybe a quick local chase before heading to the hotel - but that's quite rare!

US authorities have confirmed that from April 1 2016 all passengers travelling on the Visa Waiver / ESTA programme must have an e-Passport (one containing an electronic chip) to travel to the US.

Double check your passport  - you should see a symbol on the front. 

If you don’t have one you'll be denied travel.

Think e-passports were first issued in 2006, so can't imagine there are many people left with old style ones!
