SW Saturday!!! 10/26

Post by WaWaZat » Fri Oct 25, 2013 1:23 pm

Why am I the 1st to post this?! Have a feeling there's gonna be a pack of kite gear stuffed vehicles heading down around and towards the other side. Start at MC and head up the MI coast as necessary boys?! What the call time and who's in?!

I'll be in area around 9:30-10

Was going to head up to Superior, but to much rain and snow in the forecast.

I'll be the guy drinking beer from Wisconsin
I'd rather be Rollerblading

Man, looks like this front is moving through early on us! Perhaps just shoot for Lake St by noon and hang there. MC may still be offshore that early Robroy.... you may have to hit Silver Beach if ya gotta get it then. What's everyone else shooting for?

yeah, it's gonna be interesting to see how this front pushes through...MC will certainly be good sometime, just when and for how long is the question?

Yah, maybe 9:30ish will be better. I don't think I'm gonna have time to up much further than MC.

I'm thinking Lake St. around noon. It's a weird front moving so you have to accommodate and be mobile with your timing

It'll switch over, just a matter of when and how much wind is left. Gusty as hell right now and SSW (not good at MC).

I'm dead keen on MC in the early arvies. For you local wind gurus / 9 hr poker players: does this seem like a reasonable gamble?
