Choosing to go on a tour with Silver Lining gave us the opportunity to witness firsthand the intense beauty that Mother Nature and the Great Plains has to offer up close, all the while knowing we were in safe, experienced hands.
The knowledge and professionalism of the tour guides is unmatched. Roger Hill along with his guides are eager to answer all of your questions and willing to explain anything storm related in ways that someone new to storm chasing or an experienced enthusiast can understand and find useful. SLT has something to offer everyone, whether you want to just go along for the ride and enjoy the sights or be involved in the process of weather forecasting and learning about the art of the chase. It’s a guarantee you will come home with a feeling of satisfaction. It’s no coincidence that so many of SLT’s customers come back year after year. When we signed up for our first tour we never imagined the long-term friendships we would make with the other guests and guides. We have traveled around the world with other tour groups and the personal connections we have made with SLT are unlike any we had known before. Once you’ve chased with SLT you become a member of their chasing family. You will meet a diverse group of people from all over the world and we’re confident that you will enjoy getting to know one another. Roger Hill has a sixth sense about storm forecasting and he will find the best storms in the country, whether they produce a tornado or not is strictly up to nature. On every tour we have enjoyed awe inspiring photo opportunities, witnessed the formation and lifespan of supercell thunderstorms, large hail, and incredible lightning shows, not to mention the local color of the Great Plains including the people, food, roadside attractions, and the unique towns dotted throughout the Midwest. Silver Lining Tours rewarded us with a storm chasing vacation that was unmatched. What began as a once in a lifetime adventure has become an annual springtime tradition. We hope that you will be able to experience what we have. Once you’ve done it, you just might become addicted. We did!
