Goose poop is just what I experience in the field I learned to fly in back 20 years ago. Goose poop is nothing compared to dog poop which I experience at another field.
Im hooked. Today was the fourth day I was able to fly.I acutually spent more time flying than I did crashing. Not that my flying was anything special but it sure feels good to fly left and right when I want to.Throw a few left and right hand spins in and not crash. That being said it wasnt a total crash less day. It just so happens that the field I was playing around in is also the part time home to geese.You can stop giggeling now if you can see where this is going. So after breaking down I was looking over my kite to make sure I had not done any dammage. I didnt find any dammage but did find goose poop on the leading edge and on the lower ends of the up rights. It needs to come off.Is there anything special I should do? Im thinking of taking a wash cloth and warm water to it.
Washing: If you can, first turn the water hose on it outside.
For cleaning, just used dish washing detergent and a wash cloth. Don't use anything abrasive, because it could damage the coating.
Let it totally dry before you pack it up.

It's important to have as much fun as possible while we're here.
It balances out the times, when the minefield of life explodes.

I'm so glad its warming up, all the geese that come here during the cold months are leaving to poop somewhere else. Nature Disco (park) is almost flyable again. Almost. Another couple months or so
