Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

clearly you accidentally picked up a kite I'd left at the field... you can send it back to me any time!

Yup. Sometimes it goes like:

Hey! I haven't flown that one in years!

Wait, wasn't it a different color back then?

Had a kite once I lost for an entire year in my kite stuff. I was really missing it, too, and then one day I was cleaning up my kite area in the garage, and there it was Grin I think I had looked there 3 or 4 times before, too.

I have "found" kites my wife didn't know I had on many occasions, however. Shocked  "Oh, you've seen this old red one before, haven't you?"

i found a 20 foot delta in a bag of kite parts once. been sitting there since 87'.  that was a pleasant find.  i tried to count all my kites once i never made it though.  to many kites in to many places... i think im around 105ish plus or minus 10.  all are special to me except a few  Wink

Yes, with memory. No, not too many kites. Never too many kites.

I would be happy if my issue was in the early stages that you have.  I have progressed to buying kites that I already own and in some cases the same color.  Huh 

It is not a problem until the Mrs. finds out.

Solution:  Never, ever stack those kites . . . and never keep them in the same bag.  Don't even take them out of the sleeves at the same time Lips sealed  Grin

Hello, my name is goestoeleven, and I have a problem.   Roll Eyes
