Me and Curt from Madison are going to Waukegan today. It should be a good couple of days so we are staying overnight. If you could bring my SS bar that would be great! Thanks.

Looks like MC is the call! Keegs isn't living up to the forecast. If you're parking in the zoo lot, head ALLLL the way, as far east as you can go in the lot and walk down the last trail to the beach. You might even be able to find street parking east of the lot if they're still charging. You'll want to be way east of the pier today.

I'm heading to Waukegan in an hour or so. Hopefully, there will be few good men there since the winds don't seem to be that bad there and it is the closets spot to my house :-)

A very sweet afternoon at Kegs. No crazy wind or waves, just good, reasonably steady breeze, and chops. I counted 12 kites in the air at one time.
When we were packing, 2 kites appeared in the north. Somebody was doing downwinder from Zion? I didn't stay long enough to see who that was. Great idea, I wish I thought about it.
Anyway, excellent warm-up for tomorrow, hopefully.

Checked my various electronic devices to make sure I had the date right... So it seems. Just came back from there an hour ago.
Polo, I'm not sure what you mean. Did we see better days? Sure. But it was nice riding, lots of happy faces on the beach.

Oh gee sorry Tom, I am a day off haha. I had Tuesday mixed up with today, usually have it off. Tuesday was light at first, then picked up but gusty only about 5 of us. Sorry, today looked like a nice day .. :)
