Nate,
I've got to get over to that part of the state in the next few weeks for work and always love to try a session at another spot, maybe Hoosier or whatever you recommend. I'll send you a note when I know my schedule.
Matt

Hey just a heads up I could check another Lake off my list Lake Huron. A big day yesterday Friday. About a two hour session. Unfortunately rainy today and the winds kind of pooping hopefully it'll get better.

Nice! Big kites are so much fun, last year my 20m ultralight foil was my most used kite (kiting pretty much every day all winter) and this year I expect the new 21m ultralight to be my most used.

Anthony's not kidding! There's a bona fide base already on Grand Mesa. Pretty nice for October. So excited that liquid season is behind us. Anyone else out there got some early season treasures?
