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".

With Mark's permission...

In addition to running Prism, Mark is an avid pilot and photographer.
Many aerial shots. Electric fence for bear protection.  Huh

 Huh Huh Huh

I've taken a few nice pictures, but nothing like those albums.

I've wanted to visit Alaska for quite a while.  Now, I'm really wanting to go.


Steady winds, y'all.

Very nice. A part of America that most never get to see. Unfortunately, most have no desire to see such beauty.

I used to work (and travel) up in northwest BC, Yukon and Alaska. These are Bucket List destinations. Mark's pictures are fantastic but you really have to see it for yourself. The ferry to Alaska is a great trip. Driving up there is an experience you will never regret. The sheer scale of the mountains, rivers and trees is amazing! Take lots of memory cards for your cameras. You will use them.

Thanks for sharing those links Mark and John. Great pictures!
