I'll be headed out as well. The winds are looking to go directly WEst between 11 and 1. 270 degrees at 30.

Miller?
Beaver-lee?
MC?

Where are you goin?

It blew pretty much as indicated at MC. I was on a 10 for the morning session and fully powered. nG was on his 9 and looking stylish.

In the afternoon the wind got wiggly. Everyone was still on 9-10's, but I think the current picked up enough to take some grunt out of the kites.

3 days out of 5, so I have nothing left. It's more than I kiteboarded all summer.

Thanks but neither Miller or MC are on it. I figured MC was Michigan City, just can't find Miller on the map.
