Looks like there's going to be enough left over from the "Craziness" so I'm going to be hitting Miller on Thursday and Friday if the forecasts hold for these days.. Hope to see some of you there.. I'd be out there today trying to hold it down if I didn't have to work today and didn't have school tomorrow..

Don't count on any forecasts right now. These are the worst conditions to make predictions. It could say 20-25 out of the south for one day then the next day 15-20 out of the north. I'd wait until the day before and the day of before you take a day off.

Great am session with west and sean! Others showed up around 10-10:30. Started on the 8 and ended on the 8. Coulda gone 10m at the end but didnt want to pump another kite with my crappy pump. Ankle still too sore to really hit it hard but got in a solid 2+ hrs

Tmrw downgraded wished i could have ridden longer
