We like Artistic but what is it with the shouting?

Please let me know what the journey time is to Redwood Lodge (Bristol Kite Festival) from/to Woolacombe.

Thanks

22mph winds here in DC, with gusts probably hitting close to 30 , but we had an average of 7 vented revs up for most of the day, with long stretches of groups of 5 flying team. Good way to ring in the new year!

(and it didn't hurt that Jim Hodges delivered my 20th Anniversary kite...)

It was blowing 6 to 8 mph here this morning. I flew my full sail 1.5 with 3 wrap frame for a couple of hours. The wind came up into the mid teens so the 3 wrap frame went into the vented sail and I flew a couple more hours. The the wind died down to 2 to 4 mph. and I went home. Great start to a new year. :sign_kitelife:

The San Diego New Years Kite Festival was quite pleasant despite the fact the wind was very low most of the time.
The temperature must have gotten into the mid 70s but down to a chilling 62 when we left.
There were lots of REV fliers from all over.
Attached are 7 photos from today with more coming soon on my web site.

Treasure Island was great as usual. By the time the pictures Jay posted were taken most of "the other" kiters had gone home. It's funny how the Revers stay till the bitter end. Earlier in the day the sky was full of kites of all sizes. It was a bit cool for a Florida boy like myself. I don't even own a hooded sweatshirt but Jay provided home made hot meatball subs which hit the spot. (Thanks Jay!)It was nice to meet and fly with Bob, fly with Jay and Sherri again plus see the TI guys and gals again. The only reason those kites aren't folded in half is we were using the SLEs or as Jay calls them "fattys". I spent half my time running down the beach chasing my hat.

Ain't that the truth. The last 4 fliers at San Diego were all Rev fliers. We were wandering around in the dark looking for kite stakes as we packed up.

Here is a photo of the last moments of flying in San Diego on New Years Day. The fliers are Mike Kory, Jim Foster and Hector Herrera. Lynn the fourth flier, was already starting to pick up. Photo by Hector's daughter Michelle. 11 years old. It was posted on the IKE forum.

Here are a couple of me at the Cool Fool in Milwaukee. Photos taken by Jeff, IKE member.

He calculated the wind chill to be about 22 degrees below zero. I was pretty warm for the most part but when I removed my gloves to wind up my lines I was afraid my thumbs were going to break off.

Out of curiosity, how many layers did you have on???
