When,

it is dark as you thinking about packing away, and you still want to fly a bit longer.

it starts throwing it down with rain and you just don't notice.

the wind stops, you are rubbish at no wind flying, and you still hang round for Hours to see if it picks up.

You can be awakened from a sound sleep by the sound of wind chimes tinkling in your back yard and wonder where a lighted field in the area is.

You drive down the highway always looking and every field or semi flat piece of ground looks like a good place to fly. You wonder if the property owner would care if you did.

You spend a lot of time reading kite forums and watching kite videos.

Oh god, I can't STOP doing that. I have even been busted by the property owner because I didn't know who to ask and the vacant lot was just too perfect to pass up...

When you ask the boss to extend your business trip to see what exactly its like flying on a beach? Scouting out on google maps where they're putting you up for grassy areas?

Shopping for luggage and saying no to everything because its the wrong size for the spars and settling on a golf bag? Buying a set of ski's just to make sure the counter agent can't argue about your new oversized sports bag?

Voluntarily wanting to shovel snow just to get winter on with it so the favorite glacier lake will freeze over?

Oh I know.... watching tv shows and commenting about how windy it always is in the outdoor scenes!


I really don't think there is a single one listed in this thread that doesn't come up just about every day. I just tell people it's better than crack, and you don't have to go to rehab because you don't NEED to quit!


I was reading them as I scrolled down and thought "Wait...these are supposed to be about being addicted, and I was doing all of them before I even learned how to get off the ground with my rev..."

Heh... We're in Alaska. There is 6 months of doing just that. -35f doesn't scare ME. It's when it's -35f and you're sitting out there wondering why it isn't -60f with the windchill. :P

Hey Tak, in reading your other post about visiting Rev HQ I just can't believe I have beat you to this one. :P

When you fly down from Alaska, and hate flying, to spend your vacation with a grumpy bloke, and not see any of the sites around. Just a beach and a Beach, sleep on a hard floor, and spend time in a workshop with lots of material n sticks n stuff in it. (Great BIG grin :) , I would SO love to do this. From a verry Green jealous Bear)

Go look at the first photo on the forum main page.... >;)


When it's -35f and you make it through setting up the kite because making a larkshead with gloves on is hard, then decide, well, it's setup, gotta make sure I did it right, so you get the kite in the air and forget to put your gloves on (which takes awhile to learn to fly with gloves on) and realize it only when your fingers stick to the metal on the handles...


...When you wonder how well carbon fiber rods will bend in -50 degrees...


...When you're excited to find a spot you can setup with your handles only about 3 feet from your car door so you don't have far to go to warm up after 5 minutes of flying when it's -35f outside...


...When you have learned how to setup the rev so that you can sit turned sideways with the lines going out the window of your car because, even as a true Alaskan, yer not QUITE moronic enough to stand outside with -60f wind-chill...
(I've done this, and decided it's easier being a moron...lol)
