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".

Tom, I don't know about rules, but certainly a healthy dose of enlightened self-interest couldn't hurt.  Just returned from a wonderful week at Gulf Shores AL, and was amazed at the number of circumferentially challenged people on the beach.   Shocked  Couldn't help thinking of Pixar's Wall-e.  Made me feel positively "thin", although I would be in big trouble if I had to conform to Japan's "rules".  Max 33" waist? Huh  Embarrassed

Regarding Gulf Shores, great weather, brisk off-shore beach wind (arm-stretching variety), no oil; and because of the oil scare, more room on the beach for kite flying.  Tongue

California Condor for presence, WD3 for speed, and a Tori Tako Hawk when I needed a rest.....is my bag up to date or what.  I would have brought the Predator, but not enough room in the car, and probably not enough room on the beach. (sigh)  Tom, you remember the Predator?

Yup still remember, still got a great picture of me and her together, right next to my kids pictures....hahaha

I got a set of WD's and they go with me whenever I can't pack sticks.
What Condor do you have? I would love to get my red/white/blue one back, it might help me loose a few inches so I can go to Japan...

Take care Ted, and be sure you never go into a WalMart in the south. The stretch pants girls "rule" there  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

OK, the 33.5' waist measurement has got to be adjusted for height... I would be considered overweight under those standards, but most that have met me would say that I'm skinny. Of course, I am at least a foot taller than the average Japanese person... it was a real trip walking around Tokyo, I felt like an NBA player !

Yes, we need a sliding scale in this country to figure out how much people should pay for medical insurance, no doubt. People who don't stay healthy should pay more. That goes for smokers, drinkers, druggies, etc. as well.

How long will it be until you have to submit to genetic testing to determine your predisposition to various illnesses? 

No worries that this info would be ever applied to anything but your health care premiums.

Oh yeah, this is a good idea.

Seems older folks put too much value on freedom.
Young folks are happy with a totally invasive government.

Yes seems to be become the norm now; "its not my fault, please save me big brother"

The is a finite amount of intelligence in the world and the population is growing.

Now was it the blue pill or the red pill, and what if i took both?
