Deposits: A 50% percent deposit of the total
cost is required immediately to hold an expedition period. No dates are reserved until the deposit is
received and cleared. We will place a courtesy hold on dates for 24 hours only!
The final 50% deposit for all chase dates is due 60 days in advance of your scheduled start date. In the event you book your volunteer chase less than 30 days before the start date, the 50% deposit and the final amount must be paid at once.
For deposits: We accept checks, direct bank transfers and all major credit cards or cash securely paid via Western Union Wire Services. We will supply specific billing details once your requested dates are confirmed.
Our basic final payment refund guarantee and rescheduling terms: (Does not apply to stand-by, Monsoon or other special chases). We will notify you 7-2 days in advance of your chase if weather conditions appear to be unfavorable for chasing. In such events, you have the option of A: Rescheduling your chase for another date. Subject to available dates and other terms. See
additional terms of our rescheduling guarantee here. B: Take your chances and chase. This guarantee does not include any refunds or rescheduling if we chase and are unable to intercept storms or if no storms occur in our zone during chasing.
For additional Tornado Expedition cancellation policies, please visit this page.
Please email us for any billing questions or to make a reservation.
Insurance: We provide a basic, limited insurance package for medical emergencies, including emergency evacuation. Additional insurance may be purchased by the volunteer through travel agencies. Insurance coverage is limited to terms of Weatherstock and the insurance agency. All participants must have some form of basic health insurance coverage. Terms and coverage subject to change.
May chases begin
and end in Amarillo, Texas, unless the Volunteer can alter arrival locations as needed, with 12 to 72 hours notice. After June 6, chases may begin and end in Denver, Colorado. You are REQUIRED to arrive one day in advance of
the actual chase date and depart one day after the actual end date -- so please note this requires a
7 day commitment, although you may remove days if desired. In some circumstances, if you have the
ability to change travel plans within 12 to 24 hours of arrival, we may be able to offer a flexible
pick-up and drop-off option that may allow you to save a travel day or two, allowing additional and
more precise chasing. Volunteer opportunities are for a single person unless otherwise arranged with Weatherstock in advance. Volunteers may not invite others to follow or otherwise participate in the reserved period.
Reservations for tornado chase volunteers will be taken up to the active chase period. Please contact us for last minute reservations and availability.
Notes and Disclaimer:
Our active storm chasing areas are limited to a region roughly bounded by Midland, TX, Roswell,
NM, the eastern plains of Colorado, southern Nebraska, far western Iowa, central Kansas and areas west of I-35 in Oklahoma. For safety reasons, we do not chase in areas where vegetation, urban congestion or terrain limits
visibility, generally east of I-35. The exception for this is during our stand-by chases where we carefully target safe areas offering secure sheltering. In some circumstances, our daily target may be limited by distance considerations and pick-up / return schedules.
Please note that any storm chasing tour, tornado adventures, storm chasing holidays, storm
adventures, tornado tours, tornado alley tours, tornado vacations, storm vacations, chaser tours,
storm tours or similar activities are inherently risky, as there is no way to conduct this adventure
without some level of risk, especially since weather events are inherently uncontrollable and can
change with little or no advanced warning.

Past volunteers scrapbook
We use advanced, real time GPS
tracking and live Doppler Radar systems to chase in a safe and productive manner. Doppler radar has three levels of redundancies for back-ups. We also
use satellite, wireless and hard copy mapping.

Our typical chase day includes a morning briefing and
safety discussion. After going over a checklist of equipment and radio checks we load-up and head
out. Once our target is chosen, the excitement begins. As the day progresses we will narrow our
chase target until we are engaged with one or more storms. At the end of the day, nothing beats
relaxing with a cool drink and talking about the day's chase. Your mind will race from all the
excitement as you look over the pictures and video.
Thank you for visiting our Storm Expeditions Unlimited Homepage and we hope to be chasing with you soon!
