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".

High today in Las Vegas:

43F or approx. 6C.

But it's windy so the Friday night fly should be standards

and maybe venteds. I'll be bundled up. I'm a woos.

Relatively speaking the temps/weather in the NE has been very moderate and we have only had a few light snows... most of which is melted away now.  No complaints from me, as it keeps a cap on heating oil expenditures. 

For good or ill, my tolerance for cold is strongly tied to the amount of sleep deficit I am running and my general mood.   So to keep the mood elevated, something from the lovely Kelly Willis and her husband, Bruce Robison.

We live in that type of area, I've always said you can always put more layers on but you can only take so many off before you attract unwanted attention.   (from somebody who spent his youth with no layers on in the upper park)

Hmmm.....last spring some fool predicted a severe drought  for 2012......then it started raining. Now large parts of the country look like this.






My local fields have been bogs for most of the year...I'm thinking of taking up kite (mud) surfing!

Forecast for next week - Winds from the East, snow on Monday - tempretures down to -15 in places!! Huh

... Oh joy!

In Vegas we all can be a woos. I was flying in a t-shirt on Wendesday and by Friday  we had freezing weather. I guess our hot summer thin out our blood.

We have a phrase here in Seattle.  It's not PC, but we use it on occasion - especially those of us from the east coast.  It's seattle pu**ies. 

I hate to say it, but I've finally fallen and must officially join the ranks.     I was out flying in perhaps 35 degrees today it was 'cold' to say the least.   Back in PA, this was a warm winter day!  The tougher of us wore tee shirts just to make a statement.  Keep I mind, this was an area of the country where amputation due to frostbite was a common occurrence.

Anyhow, it's all to say, everything is relative!  Smiley
