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".

I have ipods full of songs that span 60 years, and many different types/styles, but I rarely listen to music when I fly, I like to hear who/what is around me

... Or artists...I really enjoy Instumentals of all types.  I could fly to some of the classics to long haired stuff by Yes and Emerson Lake and Palmer. Oldie instrumentals from the 50's to the 80's.  I mainly enjoy Lite Jazz, Moby, Yanni, Pat Methany, Patrick O'Hearn, Ray Lynch, Vangelis, Jean Michel Jarre and many others.    Lots of great stuff out there to choose from.  I have CD's that I have built, specifically for kite flying.   The Weather Channel can also give you some great ideas.   Enjoy!!

I'm with Danno on the Foo Fighters.  Oddly, I never really listen to them much when I'm not flying, but when I'm out on the field, they've been my 'go-to' lately.

I also like flying to a little-known band called 2 Skinnee J's.  If I had to pick one of their albums, it would be Supermercado.

Grover Washington, Jr. - Skylarkin'  (in my alltime top 5 Smiley Smiley)
Van Morrison, Donald Fagen/Steely Dan
John Coltrane - Ballads  (another top 5)

Am I outing myself as a geezer?

I'm going to be a bit of a nerd here...

Anything and everything from the Chicago Symphony, the Borealis Wind quintet, or the American Horn Quartet  Smiley
Anything by Eric Ewazen is a current favorite as well from summer (I don't really get to fly when I'm in school at all).

Not the typical flying music, but still so, so good.

In the early 70's (yes, almost 40 years ago), I was in the small town of Handorf, Germany in a cattle auctioning building (occupancy maybe 500).

The headlining act was Deep Purple.

The opening act was Leo Kottke. He came out with a 12 string, chair and 2 mikes.
While tuning his guitar, he looked up at the audience (who had no idea who he was, nor did I at that time) and said, "Good evening, I'm Joe DiMaggio."

There was no reply from the audience and he nodded his head slowly and said,

"Just what I thought."

So I yelled out, "Go get 'em Leo."

He smiled, looked in my direction and said,

"I see the Army is represented."

Then he just played amazing guitar. No singing.

For me, the concert was over. Deep Purple became much less important and I was a fan of Leo from then on.

My all time guitar hero is Leo Kottke.  Saw him when he opened for Jeff Beck in Honolulu in '75.  guitar heaven that night.
