We are a storm chasing tour company managed by David Gold, a meteorologist with an M.S. in meteorology and nearing completion of a PhD. We have over a decade of storm chasing experience. We had a great time operating tours in 1998, 1999 and 2000, and we look forward to yet another exciting year in 2001. We hope that you will be part of that experience. For a complete schedule listing the available 2001 storm chasing tours
, as well as a complete description of what we do, please visit the Silver Lining Tour homepage at:
A typical day:
8:30am: Group breakfast
10:00am: Weather Briefing - where will the storms be?
The tour leader, David Gold, gives a weather briefing
outlining the region that we feel offers the best opportunity for seeing supercell storms. Then our group
will depart for this so-called "target region".
10:30am - 4:00pm: drive to the "target region", stopping for
lunch along the way if there's time.
4:00pm-9:00pm: Chase the storms! If the storms are producing spectacular lightning, then we'll show the group
how to photograph lightning, especially at night!
10-midnite: Turn in and look forward to the next day's
exciting storm chasing!
