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".

It was 26 degree's.  I had a 6 mph wind go figure wind chill factor.  I was layered and layered.  Even took the Eddie Buaer -10 coat.  But kept the Carhart on.

This was an experience to say the least.  Went pretty smooth, but my hands got cold fast... Wind started to pick up.  All in all I flew the stack alone.  Even tried a five stack axel a couple times.  No real tangles...  Cheesy Cheesy

I experienced some heat exhaustion.  I forgot water and something to eat.  The cold zapped my energy.  No water got me dyhydrated fast.  The work out got more and quickly I was hungry.  I am going to plan this different next time.  I started out at two other places but no wind.  Then I headed to the Beach.  No cart or canvas to lay on the ground.  Big Mistake.  Not going to happen again...  Lips sealed . Have to take a few factors into account.  I went to the other field so I was close to the truck for a warm up. 

I am just working new video programs...  Hope Little Creep-O see's I am starting to practice.   "...No body knows...".   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Enjoy !!!  Except the part when I do some acrobatic moves.
