Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

Hello all,
Here is a link to view my kites…
https://kenpar19.wixsite.com/thesoarincollection

You will notice I decided to create a “personal” or “fansite” in lieu of using a photo hosting site or just posting all my pics on this site. I understand many of you have vast collections that would be time consuming to create your own site but IMO you can really “showcase” your kites on your own site.
I decided to use Wix and it’s the free basic version but has many tools that you can be creative enough to make it look your own. There are many other sites you could use also. So if you like it, I hope this motivates more of you to get your collections out there for kite enthusiasts to view.
Thanks for your time, Ken

Thanks for the post. Sweet looking kites.

The link at the bottom of my post is to Google's Archived view of my photos

as of a year ago. I don't know if I can create a link to the current Google

collection of albums, just individual albums.

Thanks again for your pictures.

Here is a link to a collage of most of my kites.

for a class back in undergrad I built up a geocities website that had some of my kites on it (you can actually still find the site if you search, but i do not recommend that Tongue )
I just keep a running list of the kites as I remember to add them here: https://goo.gl/photos/4ojtFnNswa7ETyZr8
I know I am missing some pieces, but that is a running list...

Wix does a good job with the tools you can use on their free version.. I started a site for a class project last fall (grad school this time, tech sure has changed in 20 years!) and was very pleasantly surprised how easy it is now!
