Jan Bechtum

Jan returns after a year off for a North American holiday with his wife, Linda.  He'll be my co-driver on Tour 3.  Jan is an IT consultant from the Netherlands, as well as a an accomplished musician and composer, as the first lead guitarist in a group called Picture, a Dutch heavy metal band. After forming and playing in several groups over the years, Jan has recently rejoined Picture, currently on international tour. All of his life he has been fascinated with severe weather, especially thunderstorms. The opportunity came to tour Tornado Alley some 12 years ago ... after that first year he was hooked for life. "This will be my 10th year on the Plains, and 6th year with Peter ... chasing storms is an amazing adventure for me, and it is fantastic to be able to do this with a group of people from all over the world sharing the same interest".
