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".

Well the wind checked out 4-8mph.  The field was dry of water some mud...  No Snow covering. So I went home and got a kite... First time since November.  Been a LOOONG time... Worst winter in State History... But that has become History...Today I got to fly.  The wind picked up before I got back.  I was flying a Solus std. and had it at the top notch.  Blowing all the wind out. 

It is going to take some tough days catching Jorge.  Being Rusty and weighed down with heavy triple layers doesn't help, but I need some excuse...  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

btw: does everyone know how to get free music from You Tube Huh If there is a song you want You Tube will convert it to a Mp3 for free...  IM for more info.. ( I was shocked to find out.  Now I can get all kinds of weird-o songs  Grin Grin Grin Grin Cheesy Cheesy

NO not at 8 mph.  The wind went up real high..probably about 15 mph.  The wind kept blowing the kite around on the ground when I landed...  No would never dump at 8 mph..it wouldn't fly... notice how sloppy some of the stuff is on the left side of the window..couldn't really fly on the edge either.  I kept smacking the air out of the sail to do a few things.  I stopped after about 20 minutes..I slide on the mud...

Nice to see you flying.  Smiley

I can see the wind wasn't the best to fly. Now that the weather is getting better you'll be able to catch up.
