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".

Nice flying!!
I myself fly 2 kites at once from time to time, but maybe only about 10% of my flying time.
Where was the camera (attached) when you shot this?

Go here to see pictures of the handles I use (Benson Airbow handles) and some of the kites I use.
https://picasaweb.google.com/Tonycarl60/20100415Kites#

Go here for my favorite multi line tutorial:
http://www.elalmadelpiloto.com.ar/articles.html

I used Google to translate the articles.

If you are a lone wolf flyer like me and have no one else to fly with, then this is one solution (I suspect there's lots of us out there). The benefit of flying pairs like this is you always know what the other guy is doing (most of the time) and you don't have to call out maneuvers. There is a learning curve to flying multi's, but it's not any worse then flying duel tricks or revs.  You can use inexpensive kites like the New Tech Cherry Bombs. I like these because they're not too big, allowing me to fly them for 2 - 3 hours with out getting tired. You can use rev lines and two wooden dowels for handles to get you going. You can use rev handles, but it's better to use straight or symmetrical handles. If anyone has more questions, I'll be more than happy to try to answer them:)

I'm just up north of you Tony and fly at Mistlin park in ripon most weekends.  Usually out there on sunday afternoons in the expansion area when the soccer leagues are going or on the north field by the baseball fields.  Drop me a line if you decide to come on up sometime.
