Tour never happened Brian Barnes was running Violent Skies Tours. He ran out of money. I paid for a 14 day (two week lecture) tour, but was never paid back. He still owes me 4260 dollars. If I was paid for the trip I would give him a 10 as one of the best storm chasers, but sadly I cannot. I hope he does better in his new venture, but I doubt he will own up to his debt.
