    By the way, did you notice.... Sean Casey parked the TIV right in front of Casey's general store ! coincidence? or smart marketing ? ... ;-)

    What are the red cylinders on the side? Appear to be some sort of Hydraulic spears...stab in the ground to keep it from sliding maybe? Thanks for sharing the pics, this thing is crazy. I saw it on the series last year, but I don't remember the red cylinders.

    I think those are the hydraulics that put the flaps down...

    Yes, those were the spears that they stake in the ground. They told me the tornado in wyoming went right over their vehicle yesterday, they staked down and felt the rumble and awesomeness

    Let's see... if I bought a sheet of quarter inch thick steel every pay check... no, every other pay check, then started cutting and welding........... ok maybe not...haha, probably blow out my tires from the weight... or I would be like a train, real slow to get going, hard to stop. Guess I'll just stick to my wish list of having some sort of slide screen on the roof to protect the windshield from hail.

    What?!?...They took a direct hit?
    I'd like to read the detals - anyone know where that can be found?
    BTW-Are they going to have a series this year on the 'Discovery Channel'?
    Probably a mini-series...

    Yup, they intercepted the Wyoming Tornado on Friday! You probably won't find any details until you watch strom chasers this fall! I asked them about it and they were pretty mum about it. We did hear a few details while Josh and Sean were talking and were being filmed for Storm Chasers 3. They stayed in Kearney Nebraska last night and we went to the motel this morning and got a bunch of pics and watched them do some filming for Storm Chasers. Man, did some of the vehicles in the caravan get POUNDED!!!!! I seen alot of damage, the TIV2's instruments were all beat up too. I will upload all the pics I took and post some in a new thread!

    It is good to hear that the TIV and the V2 project seem to be making the most of the (for the most part) down season. I recognized the Casey's in the picture!
