I've been giving this some thought and it has just occurred to me that maybe we are missing a trick here.

With all the publicity we have made sure that these kites are now too hot to handle almost anywhere in the world (there can't be a serious Rev flier on the planet that doesn't know it) but the question we have to ask is, does the toe rag that nicked them, I think he needs to be made aware that they are going to be very difficult to off load and that any one who can appreciate their true value is also going to know they will never be able to fly them, at least not in public.



Oh I wasn't helping - I just fancy a bargain! :kid_devlish:


Good point Bob, and indeed in the flyer I have been passing out it does say that these kites are of very little value to anyone except myself. The radio station here has done a story on them also, so there will be people that do not fly at least aware they may run into them.. I wish I didn't feel that the longer they are gone.... the less chance we have of recovering them, but.....

Fraser.... If you get a good deal, then you have to give me one too.. K? hugs... lol

Try not to feel that way. The person responsible is probably s****ing themselves wondering what to do since there is so much exposure and word out there.

Just thought, I presume some sort of reward has been offered. Might even make the T leaf hand them back in some way!!!!



Once again I am here to help you out Fraser.

Taxi for Fraser, taxi for Fraser.

HI, Ummm that just made me teary.. thanks so much for offering. You keep her there with you, where she is safe and sound ok? I do not have any routines with her specifically .. the only one I use a specific kite for just happened to be in my sewing room for touch ups.. thank goodness..


I would just like to say this to all of you..

Whether I ever get my kites back or not.. what I have lost in kites, I have found in friends...
thanks for everything..

Don't be ridiculous - you'd hear the neigh-ing as the thief unfolded its legs to get it out of the car, for goodness sake. Be sensible!

HI to all.

Just an update ...




.

............ yeah pretty much that's it.. nothing.. sorry to say but. I have called and checked in with the pawn shops and police, but nothing.
I still would appreciate you all keeping your eyes open. I am checking ebay and craigslist daily.
Thanks for all the emails and good wishes.
I will be heading to Nationals on Monday. Wouldn't it be nice if I got em back in good shape tomorrow? (if wishes were kites, I would have a festival) ..
hugs mousie

Still keeping my fingers crossed for you. And checking all the places I can think of.

And sending you another big hug of course. The last one I sent has probably worn off by now.

Ther not in Mallorca anyways.I flew out ther and i was the only flyer on the island.It struck me how we rev flyers are a real rare site anywhere.If E.T had been on the beach along with a Batman and Robin ,im sure people would have stopped to watch the Rev first as i had so,so many people watching or it was my LOUD SHORTS....

Sorry thers no good news Yet.Keep The Faith,its still early days.

Hi all ,
Thanks for the hugs , mice like hugs.

No news.. no kites.. sorry to say. I was at Nationals all last week and was amazed how many knew all about the kites and were watching for them as well. I am still watching ditches, I have to admit, even driving into town yesterday, I was looking.
