I was thinking this could be a good topic with some entertaining replies. How did you get into chasing and what was your first chase? Was it a full-out effort with laptops, internet, and heavy-duty chase vehicles involved? Was it just a drive 10 miles from home in your car to get a better view? Were you drawn by interest to the storm or attracted by seeing stories of other storm chasers? My first "chase" was last year during the summer when I saw a storm was headed a good bit east of my house, I drove about 15 miles east to a tall hill where I could park and enjoy the long-distance lightning show. It was a great experience and real fun. Anyway, what's your story?
