General review

Tour 3 June 2012. I planed this tour for a year following a less than average tour with Silverlining last year so I`ll go from the start, no problems or difficulties with booking, paying for or organising this tour. All of my queries answered promptly, You won`t 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, 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 don`t think he`d 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....)
