A warm weekend blow?

It should be rideable up here on Saturday. Likely as good or better in Sheboygan.
However, the NWMI Coast is probably the call for Sunday

If anybody roadtrips up here, let me know. I hope to shralp gnar all weekend, perhaps even bottom turn into a kaleidoscope or two :D .
Heads up. There is a major mountain bike race up here on Saturday, so the HOtels, MOtels, and Holiday Inns get pretty booked.

My boat is in the water at a dock. With a space heater, it could be comfy for 3.

All I can say is top notch day in Frankfort on Sunday, off da hook, great riding with you guys, solid crew. The earlybird downwinder to Pt. Betsie was real good, no legs left for the 2nd round. Hit up the honey hole on saturday and scored clean glassy waves all day, Pure Lake Michigan, so satisfying!

ALLLLLLL-TIMEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! Great group gathered up North for the outrageous conditions.....S turning SSW, 20-25 going to 30-35......waves just unbelievable, with the kiters really shredding it......good head and a half at frankfort and on towards Betsie they just kept rolling, and maxed out at the end of the dunes at an easy double-head, thick and throwing..........some smooth-ass bombing sections....smoked fish, Shorts, and as many waves as you could muster the strength to attack..........2 downwinders and an evening soul sesh to close it down......came in to a deserted beach and the flourescent lights glowing off the pier........Jimbo landed the 7m, and we toasted the trip and watched the leaves and sand blow on down the way,thx to the local TC crew, a solid solid bunch!!!!!!!!

like Shotgun Willie said..........."the best of friends, insisting that the world keep turning our way"............the on the water sessions are at times purely phenomenal, but the Magic is in the relationships we develop along the way and joy we share together!!!!!!!! :wink:
