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".

When I am buying some smaller things in the states, i probably ask a local to buy and send it over, as it is much cheaper than buying directly from the shop. Ofcourse I could end in paying VAT, but it is still cheaper as I can use USPS instead of UPS. A great exception is GWTW-Kites as they always made competetive prices even for the shipping.

So if you need some smaller parts from Germany, ask around if someone from Germany could buy it for you and ship it over in a small envelope Wink

I know I was long time away and I will probably be not too often online, but I am still there are ready to help out.

Cheers,

Daniel

Ok, after viewing Robs post in the webshots thread, I joined Picasa and This is my first attempt to post a picture.

This is the first flight of the Zimmermann dragon that this thread was started about.  The place is PJP in Dorchester, MA on the 20th of Dec.  The dragon went up, the traffic stopped on 93, the dragon went down, the traffic went bact to normal. It pulls like a truck in 10mph winds.  Love it!

 

Thanks Rob for the post.

Don

Probably as much as it costs to feed a real dragon for a season (high cost of goats).  Cheesy  On the plus side, you don't have to fight off angry villagers with singed crops.  Huh
