Maybe Jynx will let you sleep in her car . . . . or you can hitch a ride. She did offer to transport anything anyone needed taken down to the festival. She didn't say it had to fit in a kite bag.

Doesn't Jynx have a picture of that event?

Cheers,

There's no evidence... really...

Mike - here is the room layout, I'll have the efficiency room. I stayed in this 2 years ago but I do not remember just how much space there actually is between the 2nd bed and the back wall. There may be room under the front window if we move the chairs and table... there is the kitchenette, too.... ;)

I know you guys are doing all this to try to get Mike down there . . . . but it sure looks tempting . . . . Don't worry, I wouldn't be trying to sleep on the floor of your room.

So it looks like winter is going to rear its ugly head right before I travel. Nice. I better not get delayed getting out of here. :-|

But it will make the 60º in Florida feel so much warmer!

Very nice, excellent! It's great that two different teams can come together and fly a nice routine together, just like good musicians can jam together. Looks like y'all had a great time.

Makes me want to get out and fly (even though it's snowing here) - especially if it could be some team flying / club fly! I don't want to have to wait until KP!

Nice collection of videos. The popper-eye view was pretty fun.
