Latest On-Board Technology

In 1999, we were lucky to have internet access in the hotels at night. Now, we employ live streaming radar, lightning, official watches and warnings and everything our staff needs to find the tornado.

Our Philosophy

Small Tours with Limited Clients Makes for the Best Experience

Gregg Potter, the founder of F5!, has always believed the only way to experience storms and traveling across the Great Plains is in small groups. Back in 1999 when we started, limited clients and heavy Suburbans made for the safest experience and that has not changed 21 years later. So, for a more personalized experience chasing storms this year, pay a little bit more and enjoy getting to know the F5! family and you'll probably be back year after year like many of our long-time clients!
