    So here we are again in readiness for Storm Chase 2008, Only hours until we meet at a Hotel at Heathrow before our flight in the Morning to DFW.

    Tomorrow we will land at 9pm Uk Time and then be heading out to Dinner at the Cool River Cafe, this meal is being hosted by the Tourist Board for us, we are staying at the Best Western in DFW On Sunday Evening.

    Monday sees us setting up the Systems in the Cars and kitting everything out, we then have to drive to Irving to pick up our Sprint Data Card and then after Lunch pick up Bristolwx (Martyn) from DFW Airport, after this we will probably head North in readiness for the next few days ahead (This based on current Model Output)

    We will post pictures of the Team etc when we are all a unit of 10 over the next 2 days and of other things of Interest along the way.

    "If" We get any down days :blush: We have also managed to wangle a Full trip around the Storm Prediction Centre, this will be an amazing experience to see how the SPC Put their forecasts together!

    Regards

    Paul S

    Great stuff Paul.

    Hope everything goes as smoothly as possible for you...it all sounds very hectic.

    I'm sure it will be worth the effort.

    Anyway, I hope you guys have a smashing time, and I wish you all a safe trip

    and I look forward to your reports

    regards

    Brian :blush:

    Have a great trip, eagerly watching the models for that 'potential severe outbreak' later this week..!

    I'm sure Mr Fish would love a visit to the SPC in Norman, Oklahoma see how they do it over there..

    Well I'm here but very tired after a mammoth day travelling. I have decided not to charge down south today after that risk as I'm not 100% prepared until I have got a few things sorted. I'm sat in Decatur at the moment, and with a couple of days spare, I'm thinking of heading up to Palo Duro State Park for some photography tomorrow etc. Being 20 miles south of the Big Texan has not influenced me at all. Honest... :rolleyes:

    Are you going to check in when you get to the terminal or use the BA website check in thingy?

    I have to check in there because I have a staff ticket (wife works for Japan Airlines)
