Anyone interested in carpooling from the north side down after 1PM? I'm up in Evanston, and would love to split tolls / gas etc. to get a piece of that WSW!

Saw the forecast was to die but on the phone with artem, he says think positive and so we truck thru traffic with sun and dying winds on to mc. Paul just got done and you can feel the wind has gone even from my carseat. As everyone is packing up and high fiving it with no wind in sight, Artem walks by with gear and I follow. Still no wind but just as he pops his ride up, he lays out a big fat tweaked railey, cathcing everyones eye! where did that come from? positive thinking? someone looking out for some poor kiter?

BAMMMM, clouds roll in and fire on the water. As strong as it was all day im told and were smoking thru our trick list one by one. best part was being tired and talking to an ex cali couple in a car watching who said we looked just like a scene from where they come from. they reassured me this was the sick place to be :D :D MC all the way home was on my radio!
