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".

They are actually selling caps with flat brims now, so stiff I don't think they'd curve no matter how many rubberbands you used. Never thought of these kids as criminals, tho. Just think of them as trying to be kewl. Heck, my parents thought the same things about "those longhairs" after the Beatles showed up on the Ed Sullivan Show and all the kids began to grow their hair out.

Yeah, but the Beatles didn't sing about poppin' caps Into someone's a$$... I think there's a difference between the peaceful long hairs of the 60s and the punks of today... Gangsta ?  Gangsters go to jail...   Angry

I know, but there are for-real gangstas and there are kids who just like the fashion. I was talkin' about the fashionistas. Most are good kids.

Yea this whole hip hop/gansta fashion thing is just dumb and whether they like it or not the style breeds the lazy, no good, criminal stereo type since the majority of them are.  Those flat brim hats can be curves but you have to heat them since the brims are plastic or they wont stay. 

Curious though as to what the beginner's challenge will be.

I can see high forties in the 7 day forecast for next week. Maybe we've turned the corner on whatever pressure system was pushing cold air jet stream down to us here.

How would you like to wake up to the sound of this d@mn thing ? Imagine your neighbor had one of these ?  Cheesy

Of course I love this, I want one... just don't have the garage space for a snow machine that big. I think it needs a bigger first stage, at least a foot taller. That thing has easily enough power to push a lot more snow at once when it's throttled up. What a sound, though! Way better than my Honda snowblower.

Stay tuned until I find out Joe, Jim, UK northernmonkey group, and others can fly on grass, dirt, sand, or rocks rather than snow. As soon as they give me the go ahead I'll post the next "trick challenge". I don't intentionally leave people out and trying to be fair the best I know how.  Wink

Sorry to see most of my fellow challange flyers are still covered in snow.

It's 74 and sunny here. Time for shorts.  Smiley

By the time most of you have your snow melt, it will be over 100 here.  Embarrassed

I think a stock 454 running on 7 cylinders has more power than you'd ever need for a walk-behind snowblower...

And that's coming from a Ford guy.  Huh
