Chase route

Left work early to head to the cells visible from Oklahoma City. This would be my first actual chasing test of the GPS chasecam. Ended up losing cell coverage on the Indian Nations Turnpike, but system seemed to work fine until then. Got into the storms east of McAlester, too many hills and trees to see much, though. I ran into a wall cloud near Red Oak, but it dissipated pretty quickly. A few minutes later a tornado warning was issued for the cell. Later I found a local storm report of some damage in the Red Oak area, my GPS logs showing me to be within a couple of miles at the time... Oh, well.
