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".

well done. i looked back at that tree a bit later and my hope was the severe lean it currently displays was present before we'd arrived to massage it.

Always fun, good save.

Slightly off topic ...

John, thanks for all the work you do on your albums.  First the pictures are great ... you even show a few Revs now and again.  But, even more enjoyable are the captions on the pictures.  They really help to capture the events.  I know they're a lot of work, so wanted to say how much I appreciate your efforts.

Cheers,
Tom
