Day 6 – Zzzzz…

This was officially the last day of the tour but with no storms at all in the vicinity (and hardly at all in the US) we spent most of the day relaxing (it was well needed after all those shots yesterday). We had a tear-filled goodbye of our Aussie friends Tim & Jess and then...

Day 5 – Tour is over but the fun is not
