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".

Wow, that the exact list of stuff I found on the side of the road, a couple of years ago... I stopped on my way thru, and wanted to see what was behind that tree 50 ft off the road.

While walking back, I noticed the bag...My guess somebody left it on the roof of the car, and drove down the highway, when the car swerved to miss a squirrel and rabbit crossing the road, the bag was thrown into the brush.

I checked it out, and wrote down the contents, and took pictures of all the kites assembled with the setting sun
back-lighting the kite with both ocean and mountains in the background.

As I walked back towards the truck, a strange small man approached, and asked if I wanted some "Magic Beans"

I told this person that I would love to buy the beans, if only I had money..he suggested we trade for them, I said I only had this bag of kites, and he agreed to the transaction.

He explained that the beans would bring good luck to me and all my friends, so I guess it a good thing Steve and Marcela are friends of mine, so they could use the luck.

Excellent find........

Sorry, I just had a great day in Crescent City, with sun, wind, beach, ocean, and the Rouge Valley Wind Chasers
