Waukegan 9/28

Anyone heading to Waukegan tomorrow? The wind report is looking fair, as long as it doesn't rain.

I know it's looking better further north in Wisconsin. However, I'm only going to be out till about noon, so I'm thinking about heading out early, like 8ish.

Re: Sunrise session at Montrose 9/2

I'm hoping to get out tomorrow myself. Unfortunately I am not IKO certified, so Montrose is out for me. With the wind direction forecast being NNW, I was wondering about Whiting beach. I've never been there though. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Waukegan or Weko Beach 8/25

I'm coming from Sycamore, Il. Both Milwaukee and Weko are far. However, I'm bringing my kids, and they like the dunes. The other thing for me is I'm a beginner, and Weko is not crowded if you walk a little South of the beach-goers towards the Dunes.

Re: Waukegan or Weko Beach 8/25

I'm looking at Weko Beach, but it could be off shore if the wind shifts out of the south at all. It's such a long drive...and the traffic :evil:
I'm not sure what I'm gonna do at this point.

Re: Waukegan or Weko Beach 8/25

Ok, thanks. I've never been to Waukegan before. My dilemma is that if the wind is more south, then it won't be good for the SE side of the lake.
Any suggestions?

Anyone going to Waukegan or around to the Michigan side tomorrow? It looks like the wind forecast is for a SSW wind direction.

MC or Weko Sat pm

Is anyone heading to MC or Weko beach this afternoon? It looks like it might be a little on-shore at MC, but a little better with the beach orientation closer to South Haven.

Re: 7/28 Miller or MC

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.

Re: 7/28 Miller or MC

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?
