Saturday?

Postby mzhadkevich » Thu Mar 08, 2012 2:54 pm

Hello everyone,
I am trying to find a place to ride this Saturday, but need help. I live in Lincoln Park, been kiting about 8 years, but only once in chicago in the fall. Where do you guys go on a Southwest? Anyone heading up to waukegan??? I dont have a car, but would definitely be down to chip in for gas. Look forward to getting to know some of the local kiters.

Thanks

mIght have to work saturday but check the where to ride normal website page for locations depending on wind direction.

If I am not working, I will be riding...though I do worry a bit about sun sun sun and 50s. That could thermal kill it.

South West conditions at Waukegan are offshore. Too bad I have fam stuff going it looks awesome Saturday. I would recommend Michigan City or something like that..... maybe I can sneak out LOL

I am actually thinking to go to Waukegan tomorrow morning ( around 9 am ) for morning session. Before it switch to SW. It should be good until 1pm. But who knows I will see in the morning.

It's been absolutely blasting here this A.M. I was hoping to give it a shot this morning before it turns SW, but its just to big right now. Waves are head high plus, the surfers are getting ready for another barreling Cove day this afternoon.

Leaving for Madtown in an hour to meet the boyz at fish camp, pick up my new gear from Bob and check out their scene. Then off to a rally to thank our governor for making our state more like Mississippi. I have lived in Wisconsin for most of my life and always thought that the state just quite didn't have enough raciest paranoia, the standard of living was to high and that on a whole Wisconsin was a bit to educated for me. It's about time we started moving "Forward"

Should be good here tomorrow
I'd rather be Rollerblading
