Yes, although I just looked at windAlert and it looks like it might rain. I couldn't get out today, so I was hoping to go tomorrow.

Also, I haven't been to MC before. Is the main beach there open for kiting?

What are your thoughts about the weather for tomorrow?

I'm not as experienced with the Indiana and Michigan locations, so I'll defer to anyone who knows the best spot for the wind direction tomorrow. I'm coming from just west of Chicago, so Miller beach is the closest spot for me if it will work. I'll check in the morning to see where everyone's headed.

Mike did you get to ride? I was totally on the fence and figured it might not happen. Hope I was wrong so you got some! Just curious...
