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 continued on to check in at our airport hotel.
As mentioned I was quite devastated with how the weather turned out, having looked forward to this trip for such a long time. It is amazing though how Lanny and all other on this tour managed to turn this around to actually being quite a nice trip!
It felt like I came on this tour looking for storms but instead found new friends! It was just so much fun! Everyone seemed to be on the same page in terms of humor, discussions etc. I really hope to be able to chase with the same gang next year again.
My thoughts of giving up on storm chasing were brief and have been transferred into an even greater craving of really going all-in for next season! I will try to stay as long as I can afford in order to maximize my chances.
Lastly, thanks to Lanny for being so incredibly dedicated to give us the best tour possible despite the weather!
