hello ya'll,

Just wanted say hey....

Not much free time right now for writing a long introduction, as I have to finish getting packed & then hit the road for this weekend's "Color the Wind" festival at Clear Lake, IA (running a bit behind as usual).

Happened to revisit this site last night for only my 2nd time...WOW!!!! It's REALLY taken off since the first time I dropped in. COOOOOOOOOL!!! :up:

Anyways...hope to bump into some of yas this weekend. If not, then perhaps at some other kite festival around the Mid-West this summer (just look for the big rainbow banner wall...I'll be somewhere close by). Still working on a tentative schedule of events for 2007, when it's finished I'll post a copy here.

PS: spent some time last night uploading photos of some of my junk...they're in my personal photo album if anyone cares to check it out. Will be adding more later...

PPS: hey Drafty...thanks for telling me about this site :thanks:

get 'high' on kites,

Hey! Hi Jeff. Good to see you. Welcome!

The pics look great!

Did you fly last weekend? I wanna know what the "really, really cold" thing was all about?

Gotta get cracking on the last of our projects, and then get loaded up too. 2 Le Kainos, and one NASA wing justabout done.

Hello Jeff,

Hope you made it home last night. I would not have wanted to fly all day, go to the party, drive home though the wee hours of the morning and then go to work.

There was a nice picture of the banners in the Sunday paper.

hi Al,

Yeah...I made it home from Clear Lake ok. That handfull of NoDoz made all the difference :shock:

No blizzard to drive through this year, so I made pretty good time...arriving home around 1:30AM. Even managed to get a couple hrs sleep before having to head off to work that morning (loooong day).

Oh...by the way, Kathy Brinnehl made a point of telling me that the NEW date for the Perry Farm Kite Festival is June 16-17. Thought I'd mention it, in case you're interested in attending this year. This guy happens to have that weekend off :-D
