As a matter of fact, how many of you have gone to a beautiful place, maybe on the opposite coast, and haven't seen much other than the beach you're flying on, a few restaurants and the hotel that you're staying at (which is on the beach!!!)

Lynn has been sewing identifying things on kite sleeves for years. For the kites we make, she sews a sleeve to match. Some are quite fancy.

So that would be a standard EXP in that bag then. :kid_devlish:

Hey Jim that sure is one gorgeous kite.

Not knowing how to fly that well and have 5 or 6 Revs.

I just got to admit, that is why I have so many.

And as I pretty much have a few of most Revs I just can not blame how bad I am on the Kites.

Believe it or not, I had NEVER seen a rev in person and had one ordered!!! I was hooked the moment I saw a video of JB flying.

Since the East Coast Rev Clinic....

When you rear end the guy in front of you, cause you are looking to see if your favorite field is free of soccer players...


yes.. I really did it.. ask Connor..

Worse... the guy got of of the car, with a piece of chicken on a fork.. and I apologised by saying* oh my gosh I am so sorry, I could have made you choke on your chicken!*....

Yes.. I did.. ask Connor :blushing:

That's better than blurting out something like, "I'm sorry, I could have made you choke your chicken."

Hopefully damage was minimal as that would be money spent because of the addiction with no associated fun Posted Image

I would of accused the guy of not paying attention while eating chicken, and asked why he backed into me....

Addiction causes you to pack your kites before your suitcase when planing travel (I always do this)...you just might almost forget you pants, but remember the team equipment...sound familiar MikeC?

Lynn and I got back to our Laguna Woods condo this afternoon about 4 this afternoon. They are painting our breezeway/entry tomorrow, so will be leaving after breakfast and staying out all day. We plan to fly at Huntington Beach tomorrow, Friday.

You going to be there?
