Flying at home field within walking distance. Still no car. Working on new build/sewing-nightmare: 33% vent (super vent?) shown here.

Great points. I am new to this, but I was feeling full of myself while camping with the Boy Scouts in some stormy weather Friday night/Saturday morning. The morning was cold and windy, but I took advantage of it while the coffee brewed. My scout leaders thought I was a little goofy, but I'll take some flying time where I can.

I can say that I'll probably never do 20 below though.

Yeah, I'll never do 20 below either. Even if someone challenges me. Big Mike, on the other hand....

Mark, that kite looks cool. I can't imagine sewing it though. Wow.

Wow is right. I can't imagine sewing it either. I can imagine sewing a couple panels and then cutting the rest out .... you don't need the mesh. But of course this is coming from the guy who hasn't finished the sled I cut out last year ...
