Waukegan and Zion, just like you said. Pretty close proximity and rides a bunch of directions from NNW to SSW. Stay on the forums and don't hesitate to post up yourself. We definitely have some kind of wind coming on Monday/Tuesday and most likely some in the near future as well.
Don't worry about the lingo, most people don't get/don't care for it either, but the important stuff should be around. Like I said just check in, post up and ask questions. I won't be in town next week so I can't help you on the when, but checkin on the wind meters locally with sailflow/windalert/ etc for Waukegan and that should give you a good guess on the conditions. Water is still pretty cold at mid forties (I think) so definitely bring the gear.
