When did you get started in storm chasing?

I started chasing in earnest during the spring of 1996.  My chase partner was a friend who lived on the north side of Denver, and we sometimes would meet up on my commute to Fort Collins, sometimes would meet on the outskirts of Fort Collins (on the way to     neightboring Weld County, a tornado hot spot).

Although we never saw a tornado, we saw storms that produced tornadoes. These produces tornadoes in areas we often could not reach (due to the time is took to get to the storms from Denver). I'm sure we would have see tornadoes sooner or later, however.

Since then (except for 1999), I have made an annual springtime trek to Oklahoma for a two week 'safari' to hunt the giant storms of the Great Plains.
