Stopped for a drink at a Sonic in Mt. Vernon, MO, taking a break from driving and checking email - might as well post an update. I left Tulsa this morning around 1PM after a nice long night's sleep, which means I'll be more than up to making the full 14-hour trip home in one shot today (ETA of around 4AM EDT).

I am always thankful to be able to spend some time in the Plains every year, as it seems like every spring recently, I'm never sure if I'm going to be able to do it. I'm very happy with the way this trip turned out, despite missing the one good tornado day that occured. As I've said before, my goal coming out here is to just get at least one great shot to bring home - I think I've definately been blessed with that. A big thanks goes out to Justin and Bridget Teague for the guest room in Tulsa and Greg McLaughlin for a seat in his vehicle - both made staying out the extra days possible.

The rest of May is still open, and I'm tentatively planning on a second trip whenever the atmosphere decides what it's going to do. Until then, it's back to standby/long range forecasting mode. I will try to get full expedition logs with photos up tomorrow afternoon, as Monday will be full-on 'back-to-work' mode.

Have greatly enjoyed following your travels and look forward to seeing more. Was going to see if you needed a cheap hotel (ie the one I work for) but saw you had it all covered. Best wishes for a safe trip home.

Enjoyed viewing your storm pictures. You wouldn't be from Spartanburg SC would you?
