Storm Chasing
« on: April 06, 2010, 11:14:13 AM »
I love the weather and everythng associated with it.  I am an amateur storm chaser (been doing it for 17 years). 

I just completed putting a weatherstation on my RV.  It is mounted to a pole which I created a mount that goes on the tongue of the RV.

I am sure it will get some looks at the campgrounds this year, but hey, atleast I can warn of approaching storms!

Hi Jeff, an interesting hobby. If you stay on line with neat info for RV'rs, I am sure that will be appreciated.

  I wonder if you can tell us whether ( no pun intended) you can tell us if global warming is coming or going.

  This will probably get a bit of conversation going. ;)

I love the weather and everything associated with it. 

I feel the same way, weather intrigues me but I just watch people like you on TV chase it, I prefer a distance. I sure hope you don't try to out run any tornado weather in your MH, pretty sure the tornado will win  :o.

I enjoy watching storms from inside the stick house. Also enjoy storms in the RV EXCEPT wind....hate wind. You should have been in Quartzsite this January for the tornado warnings and 60+ mpg wind gusts !!
