Congratulations and good luck next year in the chase. I'm beginning to hear chatter about an El Nino beginning to set up and intensify in the Pacific which usually means the weather will really turn  topsy turvy this Fall and over the next year. We'll just have to wait and see how strong it gets.

That's Paul Sherman's site and Paul does trips there. I met him..3 times over there and he asked me to join them next year but I'd pretty well promised Brian Morganti and Bill Reid who are guides with Tempest that I'd be with them next year., I was with them last year. You'll have great time, they are a great bunch and Paul is a particularly nice person and I think it's just two 4 X 4 's they use. I'm sure  you will have already  seen his  photos on the site especially the Cg's. He showed me some at a 'gas' station when we met for the second time (first time was in the Big Texan, Amarillo ) and they'd been at a storm just before we arrived .It was at Childress TX .

 When are you going ?
