Sometimes things don't always go our way and we must be flexible and persistent to overcome those challenges we sometimes face. Failure is not an option!
Tour 3, 2019 went from zero to hero real fast! Though we were living life while waiting for our special moment!
The start of a long lived EF3 tornado near Fowler, Kansas.
As guests arrived for Tour 3 the outlook for the week was looking pretty bleak. Tour 2 had started things off with a bang and the entire week was filled with chasing but Tour 3 did a 180 on us.
An unfavorable upper-level pattern was setting up and putting a hurt on supercell and tornado probabilities. We managed to chase some marginally severe storms in New Mexico and had a really nice chase in West Texas, near Odessa for the first half of the tour. The second half of the tour was going to be a dud but I had come up with a fun idea to make up for the lack of weather!
Severe Thunderstorm near Odessa, Texas.
Since there would be no weather to chase during the second half of the tour, I had discussed my idea with the guests to see if they would be up for it. It was a short discussion and everyone was super excited! We then traveled into the Texas Hill Country and rented some beautiful cabins! All of us guys get our own big cabin and the girls with their own! After looking around and admiring the area and facilities we went into town for groceries and drinks! For the next few days we hiked, rested, ate amazing food, and sat around a fire enjoying one anothers company and eating smores!

It was some of the guests first time to eat a s'more! Even though the purpose of our tours is to see storms and tornadoes some guests get to scratch off other things on their bucket list. Like staying in a cabin in the United States! Tour Guide - Adam Lucio's marshmallow fell into the fire! LOL!
The amazing Tour 3!
