Oh, I might have to put my thermals on in that temp. :kid:

Ran my 20' pole up with windsock, anchored my dolphin SLK (wife's actually, but she doesn't mind) set up my SLE and worked it for about an hour and a half, wind started to die down a little bit, so put the dolphin up and pulled out the Beamer. :builder:

There's a field right here beside the truckstop, I didn't know that anyone could see me from where I was flying, but when I got my gear packed up and back to the truck there was much talk on the CB radio about "that guy" trying to get his paraglider off the ground, and was only able to get dragged across the field. :blink1:

Temp was great, I took my down vest off as soon as I got set up, it wasn't cold enough. Didn't even need to pull out my mittens! :P

sounds like fun. Funny story about the talk on the CB radios. The dual line trick guys hear "put a tail on it" pretty often. We just gotta make kiting an olympic event so folks will understand it.
If curling is in the olympics...
