Hey Guys, so I'm off to Roosevelt (Chicago College of the Performing Arts) on saturday, and I'm bringing my kites  Cheesy . Or, well, some of them....

See why i posted this is because i have an idea as to what kites to bring, BUT im not sure if im really missing anything outta the bunch. Suggestions Please!!!

My kites now are the Doddgross First Step (modded, its a fricken trick monster now  Grin ), 2 tramontana Standards and one UL. PDSUL, NikNak, Inak, Delphi SUL and Standard MK11, Mamba set (2 standards, one with and without the nitro frame), Muse set, Exile set, MSE set, Mako Std, KillerBee Drone, Firebird (skyburner), and a Micron really. Theres a few more, but not really anything to exciting to put on this and/or take with me.
So what are your suggestions as to what I should bring?

Right now I'm thinking...
Moonie Mamba UL.
Mamba Std.
Mamba Vent.
Muse Lt.
Muse Std.
Skyburner PDSUL.
Skyburner NikNak.
Skyburner INak.
(For Beginers) MSE Std.
(For Beginers) MSE UL.

Maybe My Moonie Exile standard? I think the UL Mamba and Muse Lt will cover me on the low end for UL winds, and I dont really fly the UL.

For lines, I have 75,100,150,200, and 300#, 125 foot blueline. Indoor Lines too, just because, who knows what could happen  Smiley . Extra YoyoKits, Weights, Vent Covers for the Mamba, and and extra set of battons for the Inak 'cuse i seem to loose them all the time  Cheesy hahaha.

Do you guys think this'll be good? 'Open to any ideas and suggestions.

If you can't have a ball with those kites, you're doing it wrong.


Hope you find some time to fly!

Thanks for the comment, Mr Carter. Ive decided to add the Exile Std and the Mako Std for kicks.
And I sure hope I find time to fly! I have my 1st thursday free, but I'm sure that'll end up with me in the practice room for auditions  Cheesy

Is this a dorm room situation as in school?

If so, take Two, maybe Three kites and have done.

You'll be going back home occasionally and can always adjust so start small.  Take your favorite comp set and your most 'fun' kite.  The MSEs for training friends is a good idea. See what your conditions and time will allow and adjust from there.

Hey ADX...

I went to 2 state universities (MA & NY) and one thing that I can tell you... anything nice that you bring there isn't going to be nice when it's time to come home. I would go with a minimal set, just enough to cover the wind range. Maybe confine your choices to a Speed bag. Steve's got a great deal on them, if they're not sold out. I would leave any nice, rare kites home (Moonies).
Kite flying will probably take a back seat for a while, anyway. There was always plenty to do from what I remember, and plenty that I don't remember... Cool

Best of luck at school!  I wish I had discovered kites when I was there - its a great way to blow off stress and get centered again.  Then again, lots of other distractions.

It if were me, I'd think about the 2 Muses.
