Have appointments for this evening so no trekking to Waukegan today to catch the wind unfortunately.

Good luck to all the wind seekers going to Waukegan!

Heading out to keegs/ now, and if that doesn't work, to Zion. Will post something in an hour or so. If someone makes it there sooner, please let others know what's up, hard to tell today

I was on keegs 2:30 to 6 or so. It was quite decent, side-onshore, some holes in the air but enough wind for me on a 14. I saw some 11s in the air, and also 16-17s. At one point I counted 12 kites.
I hope for a repeat tomorrow, there or in Zion? Kenosha?

Around say 11 ish it was ripping nice and steady say 18-20 with gusts up but handleable. Also quite flat still. Epic fun.
