A quick note on updates….

Just a quick note on updates. While the Live Tracker/Video feed are on this site, most of the up to the minute chase updates are posted to the Facebook Page and Twitter Feed. See links in the upper right.

The season 2013

Well, as you may have noticed, it was a mostly non-existent chase season up here in Minnesota. We are now a week into October, and the season is likely over. The tornado count was down significantly this year, and not just in Minnesota.

Due to the low number of chase opportunities this summer, I am so chase deprived that I am considering chasing winter storms this winter!

New equipment will be added for next season, including a Mini-Mesodome camera system to improve the live stream.

I will be at ChaserCon 2014 Denver in February, as well as the Minnesota Storm Chasing Convention in Jan/Feb.

Long Winter

The long winter is over, and spring is FINALLY showing itself. There has been nothing to chase up here yet this year. We’re ready to go though. Bring it!

Equipment install has begun…

Though late winter is still upon us, I am starting to get ready. Today, I installed a RAM-Mount in my truck.

Coming Spring 2013

TwisterGeeks.net is my new storm chasing blog beginning spring 2013. After 20+ years of storm chasing in Minnesota and the upper midwest, it’s time to up the game a bit. This year, I will be including live video streaming on my chases. This stream will be available via ChaserTV while I am out chasing.  I will have at least 2 webcams on board, 1 mounted above the dash pointing straight out, and another in the vehicle for pointing at other things as needed (such as when the vehicle is not pointed at the storm or tornado).

After each storm chase, I will post photos and videos on this blog, as well as a recap of each chase.

In 2014, I will add even more equipment, including a roof mount, Mini-MesoDome camera system.

Now, bring on spring! I’m ready to get back out there.
