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".

I know this has been asked before but I couldn't find the thread. Is there still any flyers in the Destin, Ft Walton area? I'll be in Destin on the 4th -7th and bringing a few kites with me. It would be nice to fly with someone and know where the best places to fly are located.

Destin is likely to be pretty crowded I'd have thought ...

When we stayed at Fort Walton Beach - I flew at on the wide part of the beach when the development ends and the airbase begins.

See here: https://goo.gl/maps/MKMps - on the left-hand-side.

You might need to park and walk - but its worth the effort IMHO - because the beach so much better, less foot traffic and cleaner winds when offshore.

Or - there is room/parking on the section between FWB and Destin: https://goo.gl/maps/KWYPP

and at the bridge over the river/estuary too: https://goo.gl/maps/Q3Oss
