Traffic Note: There are numerous street closures on the near north side due to street fairs, parades, etc. Traffic will be diverted and a nightmare. Parking at Montrose may be very limited if at all available. When the park is full they close the outer gates.

I probably try to avoid Chicago traffic and head to Waukegan. Same story for there with wind, just bring the $10 :(:(:(

Judge for yourself if it is safe enough to head out I think it will be awesome!!!

I'm glad it's not only me seeing things. Various models are very far apart at this point though... just look at IKitesurf, or Sailflow... But I'm keeping my fingers crossed, after 2 week away.
