Fighting Fit – The Climb #134

Sunday 4th June 2016 Today was my first time swordfighting since before Chasepalooza.  I managed to wake up in time but still felt a bit out of it.  So I really wasn’t expecting much.  In fact, I reckoned I was so out of shape that it might be best to give today a miss. But… [...]

Absolute Lethargy – The Climb #133

Saturday 3rd June 2017 I was woken by my neighbour playing music in their garden.  Bloody inconsiderate, I thought.  Didn’t they think that people might need a lay in?  Although I still felt tired, I was awake now so I got up… and then found it was Midday. Yep, I think I’m definitely suffering from [...]

Jetlagged – The Climb #132

Friday 2nd June 2017 I’ve heard it said that jetlag doesn’t hit you for a couple of days after returning, and that would seem to be the case because today I’ve been absolutely floored. I’ve always been pretty lucky.  I usually opt to take a red-eye and try to sleep when flying back from North [...]

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 [...]

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.  [...]

Countdown To Canada – The Climb #113

Sunday 14th May 2017 I never sleep the night before a flight. There’s a worry that somehow I’ll oversleep and miss it, that I need to sacrifice that time to make sure I’ve packed everything. At the time of writing, I still have items strewn across my living room.  I still worry I’m going to [...]

The Time Draws Near – The Climb #112

Saturday 13th May 2017 I’m at that stage where I’m panicking that I’ve forgotten something.  Case in point today.  I worried that I needed some more trousers.  Whilst storm chasing , the weather can be very hot, it can be wet, it can be messy.  And so the trousers I normally wear are not really [...]
