Thursday (May 13) afternoon, any place?

Guys, if at least one of the forecasts (Windfinder Superforecast) works out, tomorrow afternoon it's going to be warm, windy (S/SSW, 25 or so), and storm-free. Anybody going anywhere? I'm just starting but I can ride, more or less 8), and would love to have some company.

Hey,

Theres not really anywhere you can go on the SW unless you go to michigan or an inland lake

Waukegan would work for S-N but only if there is east in it or straight sideshore

Do not go out if there is any west in the wind

I wouldn't mind Michigan or Indiana, depending how much S, and how much W the wind is, if there isn't any storm, which may be wishful thinking, depending what model to trust.
Thanks for your advice, I know not to go out if it is offshore.

YUP! I still have it! I picked it up for $350 w/bar and lines and don't think I could sell it for even half that so I'm probably just going to keep it forever.. I've never actually flown it on water though.. heh..
