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?  forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

I think all would be well until they met a Road Train going the other way, or worst still being overtaken by one.

Your standard domestic cars have some difficulty with the air disturbance one of these, on the move, creates.  Huh

Very cool car, hadn't seen that before myself.

I could see one of those road trains putting it a ditch though, just how many trailers do you let them stack back there? and how fast do they drive? I've heard stories from truckers about duals when they go away, do you have rocket powered escape pods on the tractors?
