I want to make everyone aware that Jimmy Deguara has set what I
believe is the LONGEST CHASE EVER on record. On April 14-15, he flew from
Sy  dney, Australia to Dallas-Fort Worth, rented a car, took a 4 hour nap, then
drove all the way to Beatrice, NE to film two tornadoes. I don't know the
F-scale ratings of the tornadoes, but I calculated the average velocity of Mr.
Deguara towards the tornadoes was about 350 MPH or F6 range. I figured 10,000 air
miles in 20 hours plus 700 ground miles in 10 hours. Crikey. TM
hmmm June 2nd......

And I thought it was a tucked away message! Seriously embarrased I am.

It puts some of those 1,000km + in one day TDU chases into perspective!
