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".

Just a quick word hoping that anyone in the proposed path of that little disturbance on the east coast finds themselves prepared and plans to stay safe........We are all watching and praying for it to peter out with no damage or further loss of life.

I am up here on the waterfront in Gloucester Massachusetts (north shore above Boston that sticks out)....all of my fishermen (I am the business manager for a group of 45 active fishing vessels here) have tied and double tied off.....tides are high.....winds are far no issues....but..they are all tied up for a couple of days as the seas lay back down....

here is a nice tool that Google has compiled....looks like the mid atlantic guys are engulfed right now...

Stay safe all of you east coasters. High ground. Nothing wrong with running from a big A$$ storm.

The fact that I'm posting tells you a little something about my situation that I dare not explicitly say for fear of jinxing it. Wink

Though, I am blessed to be south of the center of the storm. The north side was seeing waves over 20 feet.
