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.

So,

Do you have a kite tucked away in the car 'just in case'?


When was the last time you flew it?


And finally, the bit we all enjoy.... Wink



What is it that you have stashed?  Grin

Frankly, my entire bag usually stays in my trunk, along with the boomerang bag too.    Actually with my small car, the kite bag is 2/3 in the trunk and 1/3 in the back seat.
As to what's in it, I won't clutter the thread.  I'll just say that my Widow Maker gets most of the flight hours.

Not the best place to store your kites.....eh?  Having a crossover, I don't have a boot anyways... Nicely tucked away in a closet and can pack them up in a few minutes notice.

This is my mobile kite storage, this is a older photo, I have since built a platform that 7 full size bags slide under and my stack bags lay on top

Will post newer photo soon


             


I keep a couple of miniature kites and a dual line foil in my wife's Highlander

Glad somebody else keeps a foil in theirs too. I have a Mega or Thunder Foil in mine all the time, mostly because it's so small, everything is in a fanny pack bag. And I otherwise wouldn't fly it much, but if I need a fix it's there and I can always enjoy some old school speed, pull and sweeping turns just fine, not nearly as frustrating as not being able to all the tricks I would otherwise be trying to do  Embarrassed

Usually when I'm home for summer I keep both of my kite bags in my car, and just leave'em in there. When I'm in school, they're in my apartment somewhere and I just grab a bag and go when I can (which sadly is almost never, I didn't get to fly once last year except for on my birthday).

I drove a wagon, then a van for a decade, so the A-bag was pretty much always in there. Now that I drive a boring 4door Accord I can't keep the seat folded down all the time, but my Midis are just short enough to fit in the trunk, so I'm fortunate to have my favorite kites with me most of the time.

Nothing in the trunk for a while.

That is until this thread.

Now the 4D is in there.

Hate the 2.0 lb. case.

It is perfect for trunk duty however.

So there it sits.

Waiting.

Quad bag (aka, the short bag) usually rides with me. Contents presently include: 6 Revs of various sizes/forces, a pair of Horvath SLKs, and the Frenezy and sometimes the Cesium fit nicely in there too. If I'm going out for a "fly" I'll load up a bit more, but for the occasional stolen half hour, that does nicely.

Shovel, Mulch fork, Square mouth shovel, bar, 10lb hammer, mattock, masonry tools, pump up sprayer, bucket full of hand tools ie hedge shears lopers weeding fork knee pads pruning saw bibs n bobs, 2x50m hose, heinous chemicals, rubbish bags and a lot of dirt and organic matter.
You did ask!
Kites I keep at the kitchen door and grab what I need as I head to the beach. The beach is 3 mins from the front gate, very nice.

in days past, i rode around with a 6 stack of trlby's which lived on top of the spare tire. probably flew them about once a month. now sadly, the only permanent fixture is some water (one doesn't go anywhere in the desert without water).
