Sat. July 20 Island Lake'n it

Yes, back on the bike for a nice ride at Island Lake for 11.36 miles in 1:03. Of course it had to rain on the whole second half of the ride just like at Poto a month ago (see prior post). Yeah, more mud and water. Next ride had better be dry....I'm getting tired of all the cleaning.

Wednesday, July 3 - Chasing the Forecast

Hardly worth the post - supposed 20-30 South winds never really arrived but I got an hour in up at Marysville on the big 6.9 Expression and the 105 Xcite while others tried to make it work down at Metro. A dud for wind and no more for the next week... Happy 4th. C-

Gear quiver used today...

Make your choice....RRD, Fanatic, JP....

FGCP-Great beach and launch here.

Took a chance (and it paid off!) on the weather and made the drive up to Pt. Huron for a try at the newly opened Ft. Gratiot County Park. Winds were right on the edge blowing 14-17G20 North but apparent winds were more NE and stronger way on the outside. Thanks to Craig, the Silver Fox, who picked up the winds northerly flow early at 11am when gusts were hitting 20K++ all along the southern St. Clair County coastline. Got about 3 hours in with some decent waves and the sun in 70 degree temps. Thanks to Brent loaning me the RRD 101 FSW which worked paired on a 6.1 NP expression with the new Powerex Wave 60 mast and the new HPL one-piece wave booms. Man, this place would rock on a 5M day even with NW in it. After 3 weeks of no wind here this was a worthwhile drive to get some.
