Re: Wind Map

I had the same problem, Jeepster. Took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out, but let me save you the trouble: On the far left, about midpage, there's a little "unzoom" button.

Wind Map

I wasn't sure what forum this should go into, so I'll pop it here and hope someone will see it:

U.S. Wind Map (live!)

I found it very beautiful. Enjoy!

Re: Anyone out flying today, Friday 10/14?

I'm both broke and inexperienced; all my kites are putzy little single lines. But I love to watch the experienced folks fly their beautiful duals and quads, and hope to save up for something to play with someday soon. I don't think I'm heading out today; it's too late to start without getting caught...

Anyone out flying today, Friday 10/14?

I'm thinking of heading to Busse Woods later, would love to time it to meet up with some other fliers. I'll check back here in a bit before I head out... we homeschool so our time is flexible. I would really like to avoid rush hour traffic, though.

ETA: or text my cell, 816-456-9014

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 9/26 - 10/2

Yeah, it was all sunny and gorgeous when I posted that, but then the clouds rolled in and my kid woke up with a cough, so my poor kites get to wait for another day. My phone number is 816-456-9014; thanks for the reply and I look forward to meeting you soon!

My son and I are thinking about heading out to Busse Woods today. I've geocached there but never flown, and today my kites and calling loud and clear!

Re: Greetings!

Thanks, Mike! I spent 20 years in Davis, just outside of Sacramento, and I was born in San Francisco. I still miss it!

David, I'm certain the delta was purchased from you by my 17yo son... we'll have to get back over there and drool... er, I mean, admire your beautiful kites again soon!

Greetings!

I just realized that I never made an introduction, even though I've lurked on and off for a while now. We moved to the Chicago area about two years ago (my husband teaches biology at DePaul), but I'm originally from California. I've only ever flown single-line kites, but I've been fascinated by the ...

Re: Quick Fly Near O'Hare Or Skokie Lagoons?

Thank you, Jeff! I can easily change the bike ride to Busse... we did some geocaching there last year and I remember a nice bike path. I appreciate the reply, and look forward to meeting you someday. If anyone sees this late and wants to join us... I imagine we'll be there around noon to 2. My cell ...

Quick Fly Near O'Hare Or Skokie Lagoons?

Hello, new member here! I only have little dinky cheapo kites, but I've loved flying all my life and will someday treat myself to a Real Kite. For now, though, I do have fun with the ones I've got, and I noticed that tomorrow is supposed to be both mild and windy. I saw that one member is flying tom...
