Re: Half Pint Project

Too bad John wasnt flying one handed, and holding his other hand out from his side. It would have looked like he was holding you up. :rotfl It definitely would have been even a wilder shot. 8) Ken - Is this the shot you were looking for? http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c209/Jasper21/mid_Iquad_Hug...

Re: It's Never Too Early To Think About MAKR

I believe the above poster is spam--don't click on the link in "her" signature. This is a Turing test Luna: If you're not spam, respond like a real live human being ;) How did you get started in kiting? (everyone else: you can probably look up Turing Test in wikipedia) Knock Knock.... Who...

Re: Which Rods???

I am going to throw the lit stick of TNT into this thread... (if it needs to be its own thread I apologize and trust the admins to move it) I am looking at making a quad kite with hardware store friendly items...

Re: Which Rods???

At the risk of being classed as a Philistine, I believe there is an awful lot of bull spoken around rev frames. The intricate scientific discussion of 2/3/4/rr/silver bullet/SLE frames would make more sense to me if there was some level of consistency in the rods. However I know that on both sides ...

Re: Hello... From The Corner Of Lake Michigan And Wisconsin

Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala...one of my very favorites is from El Salvador. I've only bought arabicas, and I try to buy single origin, or at least a very regional blend. Robusta has such a bad reputation for cheap filler, I don't even know if any of the specialty places I've bought from deal i...

Re: Hello... From The Corner Of Lake Michigan And Wisconsin

Hiya Bill, welcome to the club! I've never flown there. Is there plenty of room or does it get too crowded with peoples during the summer? Maybe we'll have a club fly there someday. (Better stock up on the coffee!) The Naperville event probably attracts the most club members, you may want to try to...

Hello... From The Corner Of Lake Michigan And Wisconsin

Does any members live up near the Lake and the state line?!?! I have enjoyed kites for years and just recently a friend encouraged me to dip my creative hand back into this pool... (all he did was say "Lets go fly..") I can't make it to Oswego or my home town of Decatur but I will watch fo...
