On May 14th, 2018 I began my cross country road trip which was set to last 13 days and span 15 different states. My original plan for day 1 was to drive directly from Sunbury, PA to Denver, CO with only food and fuel stops in between. Once I hit Indiana tho, that all changed.
As I made my way west a few thunderstorms were starting to grow in size. Instead of continuing to drive as planned, I ended up chasing storms throughout Indiana, Michigan and Illinois for most of the night. While I got a few good shots, I missed the vast majority of lightning that I saw. I finally gave up chasing storms for the night when I got about 50 miles from Chicago. I was just too tired to continue.
