Title: Yard Sale Find
Post by: chilese on May 05, 2012, 08:20 AM
My friends Steve and Marcela found a kite bag at a group yard sale.

Inventory:

1 2-pocket MLD bag
1 3-stack Rev II (well used)
2 Rev II (look unflown, vivid pink)
1 Spectra Sport Reactor Pro (above average)
1 Spectra Sport 3/4 Reactor Pro (very nice)
1 Fizz Phantom (looks brand new)
1 Skynasaur (looks new but poorly made)
1 AirFX RWB (2 cracked lower spreaders, sail is fine)
6 line sets various
2 sets of Rev handles
1 1000' Spectra 135 lb line reel

The woman selling the kites said she was selling them for her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend had been given the bag and never flown any of them.

Quiz:
Guess the total price Marcela paid for the entire bag and contents.

That's like winning the lottery!!   ???

I'll guess they paid $10 for the lot of it.

Stupid question.....anyone lose/have swiped a kite bag with contents like that?

Don't know.

But they'll have to give a description past what I've presented to warrant delving

into the matter.

Hope not.  :)

I'd prefer to consider them rescued from non-use than recovered from stolen.  :(

Wow, even if the correct one was the highest it is still a bargain!
What luck finding this?

Indeed let us hope this is not stolen equipment...

Wow, that the exact list of stuff I found on the side of the road, a couple of years ago... I stopped on my way thru, and wanted to see what was behind that tree 50 ft off the road.

While walking back, I noticed the bag...My guess somebody left it on the roof of the car, and drove down the highway, when the car swerved to miss a squirrel and rabbit crossing the road, the bag was thrown into the brush.

I checked it out, and wrote down the contents, and took pictures of all the kites assembled with the setting sun
back-lighting the kite with both ocean and mountains in the background.

As I walked back towards the truck, a strange small man approached, and asked if I wanted some "Magic Beans"

I told this person that I would love to buy the beans, if only I had money..he suggested we trade for them, I said I only had this bag of kites, and he agreed to the transaction.

He explained that the beans would bring good luck to me and all my friends, so I guess it a good thing Steve and Marcela are friends of mine, so they could use the luck.

Excellent find........

Sorry, I just had a great day in Crescent City, with sun, wind, beach, ocean, and the Rouge Valley Wind Chasers
