Re: Denny's Non-kite Hobbies.

Babbman , how blue of you! I never saw a Chapman until I went to see Blue Man Group. I love Blueman... I've seen them twice and I have to say that the Vegas show is the best. My favorite part of the shows are when they black light the place and all the back up musicians look like stick figures... h...

In fact, I could almost say that I love it for the winds! Since October started, I've had better winds for longer periods of time tha...

Re: Kite Bag

this is the result of editing your post, Ken, copying what you had and then pasting it in a new message. What OS, browser and internet provider do you use? I know if I looked hard enough I would remember where I saw it, and here it is. YIPPY!! There are two links, both are from kitebuilder, the firs...

homebuilt Rev

I know there were some chinese companies making revs with fiberglass spars. Maybe that's where it came from. I don't know what people are thinking, making their own revs! :oops: I know; selling them is against the law, making them for yourself isn't. I still want to make my own set of Rev2's... Or ...

Scaring Geese

On Saturday, the day of the Club Fly, since I couldn't be there, I went out in the morning for an hour or so. The wind was great, the sky was crystal clear and my vented 1.5 was really pulling.
