I didn't do this Twister style, but sophomore year of college we were told to stay in the basement because the funnels were hitting and I escaped the basement of the Galley to run and get food.  I was pretty close to the funnel as it touched down pretty close to me...it looked like I was chasing it and it was just crazy.  It was a ghost town...no one on campus in sight...windy as hell and there's this fucking funnel and my dumb ass running in the middle of it.  It was exhilarating, but probably dangerous.  Luckily, I wasn't harmed and it wasn't too damaging to campus (minus the track and some minor problems)

More of getting chased by a tornado.  I was driving to work on I71 N at around 7AM, when a class 5 tornado passed 200 yards in front of me.  I hit the breaks, as parts of a warehouse blew across the road, and pelted my car.  Several cars in front of me were blown off the road and into the trees to the right.  This was 1996.

Sure, fun. The problem is when you find it.  You better know what to do when you do. I was lucky.

I didn't really chase a tornado, but about 4 or 5 years ago. My family and I were on the high way and this HUGE tornado was about 200 yards from our car. It was a really scary experience.

Mid 1980s - my father, an amateur-radio operator, had my brother and I out while he and other "ham" operators worked to track storms across the great Texas plains. Very exciting, and learned a lot about safety in storms.

Since moving to Colorado, Tornadoes are easy to find east of here in the spring. Been doing it for several years after receiving training. I volunteer to relay important information to the NWS to help aid in weather warnings so there is a point to my madness. If you ever want to do this please use a professional service or get training first. They may be neat to see when they are not hurting anyone but the roads do not need to be clogged with people who have no idea what they are doing (it put me into a spot a few times!!)

This one wasn't voluntary. My dad was just being an asshole. Spent the whole time trying to calm down my 4 year old niece in the backseat. I was 9. #lifeinoklahoma

 In an Oldsmobile. Sometimes I think I wasn't a dumb teenager, but then I remember stuff like this...  No regrets though!
