I started kiting in the summer of 2001.
A year later I still had not become the world's greatest sport kite pilot (what a shock).
But I did put out a photo album book: "My First Year In Kiting".
All photos were taken with my first digital camera costing $900 used (Nikon 900s 1 MP).
Each copy cost over $35 to print and I may have sold 25 to 50 copies at $50 with all
profits going into the purchase of the next kite (addict spoken here).
Bambi was cleaning out a bookshelf and found our author's proof copy.
I went through the book reading signatures (Tim Benson, Mark Reed, Ken McNeill, David Gomberg, Dennis Fishback, etc).
I was so young at 53.
My thanks to those of you who ponied up the big bucks to a young upstart who thought he knew everything.
I found a .ppt version of the book (no signatures and only 1 corrupt photo). It's about 17 MB. If anyone would like a copy,
send an email to me and hopefully it should go through.
Oops, looks like there are several photos that have corrupted over time. Who knew electrons got old?
