Flight to Calgary – The Climb #129

Tuesday 30th May 2017 Today went past in a blur. In many ways I was glad it did.  Endings are always hard and today I left Winnipeg to start my journey home. I’d got most of my packing done last night so it really was just a case of packing the electronics.  But given that [...]

Chillin’ In Winnipeg – The Climb #128

Monday 29th May 2017 I am beyond shattered.  In fact, I can’t remember ever feeling this tired - not after the sleepless nights at Toy Fair when I had to upload via dial up, nor after Leo conferences where we’d stay up all night to make Breakfast Club. I woke about 9am, and pottered about [...]

The Long Journey Back To Canada – The Climb #127

Sunday 28th May 2017 There was no time to reflection, there was no time for melancholy.  No sooner did our chase end, we were on the road heading back to Winnipeg. From NE Oklahoma it was a 16 hour drive and the plan was to drive nonstop, swapping out drivers along the way.  As the [...]

The Final Chase – The Climb #126

Saturday 27th May 2017 There’s been some debate about whether we would chase today or not. It’s a long drive back to Winnipeg and some people need to be back to work on Monday morning.  I don’t fly home until Tuesday evening but I’m not interested in making that journey back to Canada later by [...]

Changing My Perspective – The Climb #125

Friday 26th May 2017 One of the things that has been bothering me the last couple of days are my technical woes.  Anyone who has been following The Climb knows just how much work I’ve put in to try and make my plans flawless.  And so when things go wrong, a part of me feels [...]

The Price Of Storm Chasing – The Climb #124

Thursday 25th May 2017 Chasing storms is unbelievably taxing. You wake early to check the latest models only to find that all the plans you made late into the night have suddenly been superseded by a new target necessitating a whole new slew of plans.  These can get made over a hasty breakfast but usually [...]

Driven To Drink – The Climb #123

Wednesday 24th May 2017 Creating the vlogs every day is a challenge. Firstly there’s videoing the content.  It’s about little things like bothering to take that camera into the diner with you as much as the large things such as remembering to video some event going on.  The trick is to capture the moment and [...]

Hunting Aliens In Roswell – The Climb #122

Tuesday 23rd May 2017 Today was a down day. Down days are days when you aren’t chasing any storms.  Sometimes this is simply because there aren’t any storms within driving range, but sometimes it’s because chasing a storm would put you out of reach for a better storm the next day. They’re also a good [...]

Sleep Deprivation in New Mexico – The Climb #121

Monday 22nd May 2017 Today we chased in New Mexico.  The storms never produced any tornadoes but I managed to take a load of timelapses and got treated to some amazing sights. I’ve been in a bit of a bad mood today comprised of a mix of things.  I lost a memory card last night.  [...]

Close To Colorado – The Climb #120

Sunday 21st May 2017 Today was another busy day of chasing.  We know that the latter half of the week is going to be quiet so we want to grab every opportunity we can.  We stayed overnight in San Angelo with the view that we’d go to Amarillo today. Texas is a big ol’ place, [...]
