    These guys know what they are doing.........we saw more storms than some of the well know companies.....Infact 14 Supercells

    A massive big thankyou to the guys on the staff for a excellent job...first class!!!(Paul,Tom,Ian,John)

    Fantastic guys truly...

    I realy had a good time and now I am a bit sad that it is at a end....

    I loved the experience and would love to do it again.

    The guys made me feel welcome and mad me laugh so much.....

    Hats off to Paul who got us on EVERY occasion on a Storm.....Infact one occasion we were THE ONLY ONES in the USA to watch a cumulus form into a Supercell..

    Paul will go out of his way to get you as close to a Supercell as possible within safe distance..

    But sometimes mother nature as other ideas(Plainview) :winky:

    Truly excellent Paul how you pin pointed the areas with 10-20 miles of action before Supercell time...

    And on the down time days we had excellent fun with bowling ect.....

    It was more than I expected as words or pictures cannot explain the AWSOME excitment of these killer storms.

    Cant wait to meet up with you all again..

    A Big Thanks to Paul .M for making this possible with the price so I could fullfill one of my dreams to see soooooooooooooo

    much violent storms

    On a bad note....There is a down side..........Im not not excited about Uk Storms anymore :):aggressive:

    Paul.S can I have a bit of pizza :)

    shortly i will put up videos and pics of my Fantastic experince

    hi seasons...im not sure..its the music Paul put on when we went Supercell hunting....

    Thanks weather 09...........putting another up of this storm soon...without music on this one...

    A day to remember............Honestly the video and pics dont do it justice how bad and AWESOME this storm was

    Its a shame that the sky went so black you couldnt see much....and the Sirens and cars racing around to take cover..video had a hard job picking this up..

    The next video Paul and John get the hell out of there and set up a few miles outside to let the storm chase us

    there no doubt in my mind that this was a killer storm.I hope to witness something as deadly as this again

    the CGs went ballistic as we aproached evening........it was like something in a SCIFI movie.......truly ask the other guys.Incredible!!!

    There was a Tornado somewhere if I remember correct....and the hail was very large.cant remeber how large...In the town with Structure damage.

    PART 1

    April 30th?

    places travelled Childress,Shamrock,Clinton and Weatherford

    A day that looked like nothing was going to happen......

    We waited all day!!!!! :rolleyes:

    Patience paid off with us only in the USA to be on a Supercell 15 miles away..........

    we watched it grow from nothing into one of the best lightning displays I have ever seen.

    The car got Base ball dents on the roof as we parked up next to a lake and waited for a Twister....
