Back home from Finland (remember this one JimB?)

Allen Carter:

Many moons ago I sent this beauty off across the seas in trade for a Midi. Good trade, but over the years I got the "I should have kept it" pangs several times. Sure have flown the hell outta that Midi, though. :-)

So, now the Emerald Warrior is back home. It's second home, really. I got it from JimB maybe 10 years ago. I believe he was the original owner, which may be why this kite flies so nice. Jim is an excellent kite obedience trainer.

Thanks, Mike, for taking care of this kite for a while.

At the time Midi's were scarce, I REALLY needed another and this was good trade bait. Keep in mind I had many, many other PBSKs.  :D

Of course, about six months later a huge stash of Midis went on the market and they became instantly less rare. Now I own 4.  ::)

For a while I thought that was one of mine too, like how many green PBSKs are out there?
Mine was a green Stiletto, though. Now that I recall it better, it was Cedar Green with Brick Red trim.
Wonder where that one ended up?
Anyhow, congratulations, Allen!
I know all too  well the pangs of regret when letting a kite go, even if it is to a very good home.
