Review of "Tour 2 - May Madness" by Tornadic Expeditions
Professional, passionate and personable are three words that sum up Erik Burn ‘s Tornadic Expeditions tours. I signed up for Tour 2, 2017 which unfortunately was a week without tornadoes. Erik did his best in the first few days of the tour to find a weather system that could produce the storm but sadly, Mother Nature was not in the mood to show her might then or for the rest of the week. Erik successfully plied his meteorological skills in determining a strategic route in which to intercept a tornado but the best we were able to do is chase a storm through eastern Texas which eventually came up short. Although the week was a “bust” when it came to tornadic weather, Erik did his best to entertain us, spending two days in beautiful Galveston Beach where we saw some terrific sites, (i.e. alligators and a very unique waterbird rookery), the National Weather Center in Norman OK and the Twister Museum. Erik has a very pleasant personality and sense of humor and bends over backwards to make sure his guests are having the best time possible. Guests should be aware that there’s a lot of time riding in the van which can be quite boring if you’re not chasing a storm. Nonetheless, the van was comfortable and Erik played videos during the long drives. Many times we checked into our hotels very late. This may have been different if the week had been stormier. I highly recommend Tornadic Expeditions and will try again, with them, to see a tornado!
