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".

Woke up to -4 degrees today.  Here in Michigan we are having one of the coldest Winters in years...  I took a cup of boiling Hot water and threw it in the air.  Saw it on the Internet... so I gave it  A try .  Had my wife help me at 1:30 am but it didn't turn out.  She wasn't happy....  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  But a good sport about it...  Tuesday Jan.28th -4 degree's in The "D".  unusually cold...

I had the pleasure of spending time in Sydney a number of years ago .  I always remembered that in Winter here it was Summer there.  I just told someone it was time to leave and stay in Australia until Spring.  I went to Sydney in late August...

I live in Mid-Michigan & it is never "too" cold to fly. I like putting up my single line kites when it's below zero so the neighbors have something to talk about.

I thought about it last week.  Then I realized being alone I might not be able to pack up quick enough... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy without freezing.  I got my Carhart Bib pants and some good warm jackets... But it's been so bitterly cold.. I got no nerve  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

This been a Record Cold & snow fall for the month of January in Michigan...  We break all the wrong records...  Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed

IKE has informal polar bear bragging rights for verified flying at zero or below. I was gonna try it, but just wasn't that enthused. Easier to grab the handles on Rev's rather than straps with gloves on. May be negated by dealing with 2 more lines.

I did -6 the other day but only lasted bout 10 minutes before my pinky and ring fingers went numb... the feeling of blood rushing back sure does tickle!

NOBODY messes with the IKEers!  Smiley
