We started in Hot Springs, SD today, and our goal was to catch a storm or tow near the Cheyenne Ridge. We ended up intercepting a picturesque LP supercell near Arthur, NE, and we chased it down to Ovid, CO via Julesburg, CO. We drove 589 miles and found ourselves in Denver for the night. This was also the final day of chasing, so we said goodbye to our awesome group. Even though the weather pattern was poor, we had storms, lots of laughs, and loads of fun. Total mileage for the week was 2923 miles, and I drove a total of 6,632 miles during my two tours.
Now for Bill's more detailed account: "The day previous (July 6) was a reposition day for the most part, though we did wind up with a nice lightning show during the evening in Hot Springs. We drove the Enchanted Highway and visited Mount Rushmore, too. Unfortunately, we were stuck in a restaurant in Hot Springs as the thunderstorm approached. I hate it when that happens.
