General review

I'm from New Zealand and I've toured with these guys twice. Once in 2000 and once in 2004 and I can't wait to go again. In 2000 I traveled with a group of roughly 25 people, 2 vans of of 10 participants and 2 lead vehicles with a few extra experts. I really loved this trip. I had never been to USA before and loved traveling around the mid-west. It was great to hang out with lots of new people from America, England and other places. Everyone was really interesting and super nice and the mid-west is beautiful. There aren't any open expanses of flat land in New Zealand, so it was new and interesting. On that trip I learnt a ton about the meteorological effects that create tornados, saw tons of lightning and whilst I only saw 3 small tornados, I was totally hooked and went back in 2004. On the 2004 trip I tagged along on the last day of the previous tour and saw 10 tornados in one day in Kansas, including a massive one. The rest of the trip was just myself an American lady and the tour guide. We saw another 4-5 tornados and got up close and personal with a big one. Charles is super professional and I trust his knowledge of tornados implicitly. He's also really nice and heaps of fun. I can't wait to see him and the other chasers again soon. Chase with Charles and Cloud 9. You owe it to yourself to do something like this at least once in your life. Cheers Campbell Rousselle
