Chicago Area - Anyone??
Looking for pals to ride with in the chicago area. I am new here from Florida and dont really know where to ride. I tried Chain O Lakes 1 time, but I heard it is now all no wake (which is BS). Any suggestions??

we mostly ride the Illinios River in Morris Illinios..It is about the only one open right now.Wilmington and Kankakee are open too from what i have heard But Wilmingtons dock sucks it will beat the shit out of your ski and there is no shore to beach your ski on..Kankakee is kinda small riding area..Morris is 17 miles lock to lock with sandy beaches and a couple of bar/resturaunts if needing food or drink..The name of the park in Morris is the William G Stratton park

I usually ride the lower Fox.... it is closed right now but as Icerat mentioned it should be open by next week as long as we dont get any signifigant rain. I launch in Algonquin at the Boat House marina which is on the east side of the River across from Port Edwards. I ride just about every Sunday with a few friends..... typically meeting up with Icerat and BMSmith (who lives on the river).
I will be heading down to Marseilles to ride the Illinois river today.... will be heading out there with a couple of friends with boats as well as another couple people with skis...... maybe I will bump into the snow people today
Scott/Missy.... if you guys are riding the Illinois today give me a call at 630 235-1869 and we can hook up out there.... I had Scott's number from Muddy's ride last year but got a new phone and no longer have the number.
