A situation today made me nearly collapse in a fit of giggles and I thought what had made everyone else giggle on the kite field.

Took my 4-Stack out today in some really good winds, 28-32 kmh (17-20 mph), and put in a solid 45 minutes work. After that stint I was a little worn out, so I saddled up my B2 Std. I was THROWING THAT THING AROUND like there was nothing on the lines!! So light. It kind of made me feel like I was much better than I actually am. The whole time I was giggling like a school kid. Man the difference was absolutely amazing!

Most recently Rob!! was last night... flying in a nice 2-3 mph breeze at the local park , it got dark so I turned on the lights at the vollyball courts and after a couple of hours of flying and singing with my headphones on!! This couple appears out of the darkness and said " Wow , that is amazing.!! We thought someone was over here Bungi Jumping"......Hmmmm.... bungi jumping ?????... about then, I started laughing, got blinded by the light's, snagged a pole and broke a ferrule, wrapped it up and headed home !!! ...giggling all the way as they were starting to play vollyball with a pinecone!!! Hmmmmmmmmmmm....:crazy:src="http://www.revkites..../crazy.gif">...

jumping from a large frame to a small or super fast model, for example Zen/Rev-1 to a supersonic, or the B-2,...
It is that same "holy cow" feeling every time!

going the other way is like flying in quicksand, sluggish and non responsive

For me, the question really is.......

What doesn't make me giggle on the field?

But if pressed to pick one I'd say it's the determined look on the faces of kids I'm toying with!

16, 36, 64 and maybe 100+ makes me giggle.

The fact that we are able to do it makes me giggle.

I'm hoping that there will be many participants <another giggle>
