Tour #3 – 1 spot left! (only 2 guests total)

Every year in late May/early June, the storms out on the plains become a little slower moving and the structure can be better than other times. That’s not always the case, but generally later in spring can yield some pretty spectacular storms. Below this section is a little gallery sampling of what we’ve seen the past few year.

These tours are very ones, just 2 guests plus me and my buddy Brett Wright. We leave from Denver and return to Denver, although sometimes we can be fluid and drop people off wherever, or even add an extra day if needed.

Please note…this is essentially a tour, not a workshop. While I definitely will and can help with photography questions, I’ll also be focused on chasing, doing my own time-lapse/photography work, shooting video and also lots of other decision making. Guests are along for the ride, to experience what it’s like and to get any photos they can! We will chat, learn together, I love sharing what I do, and what I love, especially with all the driving, so it will be fun!

And a note about driving. There is A LOT of driving. Some days we will drive just to get in position for the following day. We may go from Kansas to North Dakota in two days. We go where the best storms will be, so be prepared for that! We recommend guests be confident they can sit for long periods of time, and also get into and out of a 4×4 truck with relative ease.

The details:

  • Guests arrive in Denver the day before the tour start date, earlier in the day to give us flexibility.
  • We leave from Denver the morning of the tour start date (or the day before if need be), which could be very early, like 2am. Just depends on where we need to get to that day
  • Our chase will take us all over the plains from southern Texas to Montana if need be.
  • The last day we chase will be the final tour date, and we’ll drive back to Denver overnight if possible.
  • Your return flight should be late on day AFTER the final tour date

The price: $3500-3800

What’s not included in the fee:

  • Lodging
  • Meals

Hotels will be the biggest expense for you on the trip. Personally I look for cheap, clean places, even Motel 6’s if the ratings are good. We allow guests to stay where they feel the most comfortable, so we can drop you off there, while I get my own room elsewhere. But adventure is half the fun of these trips and finding those little dingy, awesome motels if part of the fun! I generally have been booking all the rooms myself and getting reimbursed by guests at the end of the tour.

What is included:

  • We pay for all vehicle expenses, gas, etc.
  • Seeing storms, having a blast and hopefully learning a little along the way
