I chased on my own on May 28, 2012, starting from Pratt, Kansas, and aiming for just over the Texas border in the Vernon area.
I ended up under towers as they went up. They rapidly became severe.
The first one was pretty, and I let it go to navigate to the storm behind it, which looked more meaty on radar. It was beautiful but gusted out spectacularly.
I sought shelter in Seymour, but the big hail missed me. It always seems to miss me when I have protection from it.
