Forecast mostly sunny and near 50 degrees this afternoon with SSW winds.

I can meet up this afternoon. Busse, Peck Farm, other.

About 1200 miles too far . . . . otherwise, I'd be there. You should ping Tmadz.

Anybody thinking about going to cool fool in Milwaukee?

Sorry. Too many household things to take care of today to free up time later. I know it'll be the best weather I get, but work first, then play.

New Year's Day, Veteran's Park, Milwaukee. Bunch of foolish kite flyers will (probably) be flying. I've never been.

If twelve people show up, they'll be the frozen dozen. I'm gonna wait for warmer weather -- they say patience is a virtue?

Wish a few folks could have shown up. As it was, I ended up at Munhall School in St. Charles. Close to home and ideal for southerly winds such as today. Always wanted to try my GoPro and the headband mount. This seemed an ideal time to try it out. Spent about 90 minutes just enjoying the day and the kite.

Not much fancy flying here. Which I'm not capable of anyway.

Thanks. No, I've had the camera and some accessories for a while.

Nice, very nice Bill. I like your flying and your Go-Pro setup up. I was actually following your lines. Some more insight in my learning curve. Thanks for posting.

Xay invited me to his local flying spot. So I jump at the chance despite the gloomy weather. He was flying his extra vent Rev. I shook out my full vent.

After nearly two hours of flying, we wanted to get his new mid-vent in the air for at least one photo.

Dim and cold. But it was nice to cross lines with someone again.

Glad to see you guy's were able to get out and fly. Xay's new mid vent has an amazing pattern.

I was one of the fools in question, good time, dressed warm. put up the Mesh Delta for about two hours and messed with the rev until I couldn't feel my fingers. All in all a good time.

Very nice. I didn't fly today. Went for a walk with the wife and my fingers were freezing in less than half an hour!

Flew the vented for a while, but it just got too windy to do anything with. Try again tomorrow.
