      It seems LL should be sailable for the closing day.  However, if you want strong wind, CJ is probably the call as not sure how long LL will last.

       

      Originally, I was hoping I can get out with my truck already loaded.  However, I’m stuck at work as not sure if I can get away.  L

        Just updated (12:01pm), 26G33 in Boise, 20 in Caldwell. (No gust #? "Strong and steady" sounds nice, doesn't it?) Lake Lowell could go off, especially if it builds a little through the afternoon (rather than what it usually seems to do out there.)
         
        50-52 degrees in the neighborhood. Brr.

                Bruce ended up circling around and meeting me at
                Cocaine Canyon... which neither of us really liked the look
                of for launching. Seemed like you'd be slotted right along
                those islands... but I guess you pinch through the biggest
                gap to get above them?

                We saw somebody upriver on a kite after we'd moved
                to the Pump Station and launched out of there. Just one?

                It was gusty, to be sure, plenty of wind to drive a 4.7,
                which I'd sadly left at home. (Got distracted before I'd
                loaded the small sails!) The 5.1 was a hell of a ride.
                Bruce rigged down to 4.7 and was happy, I stanched
                the bleeding from letting my mast hit me in the face
                (nowhere near as cool as that tree stump in Coconut
                Cover, Steve, but I tried) and then decided it had eased
                up a bit... maybe it had, but the 5.1 was still a hell of
                a ride. I couldn't quite enjoy that channel with the bigger
                waves because I was too concerned about hanging on
                for dear life.

                We both cleared out right about 5, it was going strong
                but with some big clouds looking like they might change
                things. Stronger? Colder? Rain? We didn't wait to find out.

                  Hey Steve looks like LL turned out some good numbers afterall. Well I should have gone there but still had a good time riding all by myself at the river next to the bridge. Smooth water behind the islands were nice.
                  And yes Tom, that was me on the kite.  It was quite the wind.  Some strong gusts well into the mid 30's.  Big swell at times that you could actually try and carve a turn on the face of them.  When ever I got overpowered I just threw a massive jump. Hand some of my biggest ever.  Rode from 3:50 to 5:15 and got off the water with some pretty numb fingers. 
                  Looks like nothing for the weekend.
