      Is the C.J. reading accurate on WindAlert even though the location on the map seems off?  If so it was blowing over 20 for a couple hours this evening.  Would it have been a good place to hit or is it better later in the spring?

      Thanks for the advice.  Still getting the lay of the land.

      Yes it does give you a few days forecast...but it is hard to see on PC.  However on phone you can scroll out on hourly basis over a few days.  Now everyone knows my secret ;-)

        For you that want some more mapping tools besides the quick and dirty Google maps,   try using the US Geological Surveys map http://viewer.nationalmap.gov/viewer/  it has a lot more scale and lots of overlays that give you topo and greyscale down to 25 foot resolution. Good for identifying amount of sagebrush cover when looking for snow kiting areas.  Note,  Not for smartphones.

          Yup, the USGS has a wealth of data.  If you're not interested in using a nuclear weapon
          to weed your lawn, however, you could take advantage of the local knowledge which
          I thoughtfully captured in an interactive Google map. Here's RCR:

          http://fortboise.org/maps/sailing-spots.html?ll=43.082482,-115.531528&z=13&t=h&i=10

          I don't know how well it works on a smartphone, but if somebody wants to give me one
          of those with a service contract, I'll be happy to optimize it.  :-)
