Much to early to be sure, but it looks good. Still really cold but should make for a good first session. Who's in?

I'll do anything for a first session haha. I saw more then a few people at Montrose on Sunday, some just to fly the kite on land, some in the water. I think Saturday may be good for a SW. I'll come back to this thread Thursday night/Friday.

Looks like it might turn into Saturday at Keegs, or driving to MI. Either way I plan on chasing the wind. If its MI and someone wants to car pool for an early Sat departure let me know.

I plan on bein there early on Sunday to beat any thermal block as it heats upand take advantage of the SE till it cranks up and goes SW at Wolf to finish up the day on a warmer note maybe....all I know is I am excited as hell about my second big lake sesh this year!!! Anyone plannin on gettin there early like 8-9? Not really interested in kiting alone when its that cold.

I just came back from Montrose. Great little 16knt session. The sun had a lot bigger warming effect then I thought. I was extremely comfortable for a few hours on my 6/5/4 and the rest. I don't want to say you can start throwing layers off, but it being April and all I think it helps.

I'm trying to pin down this storm, but I can't. Rain all day perhaps? BOOO. I'd kite inbetween the rain drops, but it's not looking good. I'll reserve judgement until tomorrow morning.
