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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

As many of you know, I'm engaged to a lovely flier from Tokyo...

She applied for her fiancÚ (K-1) visa earlier this year, and just completed her final interview today.

APPROVED. Cheesy

She'll be arriving Portland for good on October 13th, right after I'm back from AKA...

Wedding will be sometime in November or December. Wink

Congratulations also here from Denmark. Must be so very great for you.

My wife and I started out with a long distance relationship, 300 kilometers apart. Compared to your situation, that was nothing. Huh

Best wishes to you both !
