General review

Tour 3 June 2012. I planed this tour for a year following a less than average tour with Silverlining last year so Ill go from the start, no problems or difficulties with booking, paying for or organising this tour. All of my queries answered promptly, You wont meet a nicer guy than Charles Edwards, and he has a great way of conducting his business. The Guest Inn was fine, as were all but one of the motels we stayed in on the tour. Unfortunately we had a fairly quiet two weeks, only 5 chase days, and that would have been the same whoever I toured with. On those 5 days though....wow, supercells, lightning, flash floods, massive hail (and steaks),in fact if it was there to be experienced, boy did we experience it. I will say that I felt safe at all times but Charles is definitely not afraid to get in amongst it, even driving into a hail core that he knew was going to cost him a small fortune in windshields. It seemed also that his choice of overnight motel stops were based on where the weather might put on a show, with awesome overnight lightning most nights. There was only one thing that happened on tour that did not please me and I have to mention it in the interests of a fair review and that is on day 10 our driver drove us over a railway crossing when the barriers were down. I was most angry about this and did make mention to Charles. I dont think hed be silly enough to allow this to happen again SO I SAY.... Take it from a VERY hard to please Englishman, Book a tour with Cloud 9. You`ll love it. (no after event fuel surcharges either, shame on you Silverlining....)
