The sooner the whole World becomes Kite flyers in thier minds, the more comfortable this World of ours will become.

Well Family what a great weekend and how much fun we've had here at Kite Party, between iQuad and the IKE folks I had to be on my A game for
sure, I'm telling these folks can fly. Then when you add team Too Much Fun to the show you've got some real superstars to deal with, so the line up
was full of great fliers and just a bunch of folks that just wanted to have fun...........Well Family it's late and I need my rest so for now I'll just
say good night and hopefully I'll see you soon...........Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

Good Morning Family, well as I prepare to go to the Smithsonian fly in DC I am excited for sure, I
will be with some of my very best friends and also I will be at our nations capital. My plans are to do
the fly and then the next day see where I can get away flying at with out getting in to much trouble.
I figure between me and Kelly and Dennis we should expect to be detained at least twice for flying
in no fly zones, can you say short line sets......... :kid_devlish: I love my job....... So Family being
that I'm traveling fairly light on this one if theres anything you have in mind let me know so I can
bring it with me..... Also Baz the 911 kite is coming with and I'll try to get you some cool photos
of it at are nations capital......... :innocent: This is a big one for me because I've always wanted
to fly at the capital, plus it's the time where I get to see so many of you for the first time after
a long winter........ "Remember peace thru flight" Ben

Ben,

Maybe we can do Sandy Point on Sunday. The winds are usually always (well almost always) good there. Winds at the mall can be very light, but I know you are always prepared for all conditions.

Hello Family and Smithsonian was a real blast and lots of you came out to play and for that I
want to thank you and a special thanks to Dennis and both the Jeffs and Brad, the day after was alot
of fun even if it was cold. Family if ever theres an event Id say is a must this is the one
and the people there were great and the help I got from Drachen was unreal, with that being
said keep an eye out for a Drachen article on yours truly, plus give there site a hit so they
can see that we care. You know there were alot of you out there who need my thanks but I'm
writing this as I pack up for NABX cause it's buggy time so hope to see you there and come over
and lets fly..........Ben :blue-cool: :blue-cool:

I had a great time with all the friendly fliers, thanks for joining-in with us at the Washington Monument Ben! Sorry I couldn't hang-out with everybody on Sunday too. I had a Swiss kiting guest (Olivier Reymond) and dinner party to assist the bride with coordinating, so my friend and I had to stay in the neighborhood.

Hello Family and as I stop for the night after a great trip to NABX I have a moment to catch my breath and think how great
of a time I had in the desert on the dry lake bed. I want to tell you that I had some really great runs and as always my
trusty 2-4 came thru with flying colors no matter if the wind was 5 mph or 25 mph, I'll tell you once you master the ability
to dump the power when needed and then give it the power when needed, you can go anywhere at any time, I wish I could
think of just one run that was better than another but I can't cause they were all just super, WHAT A KITE...........
You know with this kite I almost never have to change out as I used to have to do with the soft kites, so there for I'm
in the saddle all the time rather on the side line changing out my kite for the changing wind........ Then our friend
and Family member Kent from "Wind of Change" was there with his new race buggies he designed and even though there
are not cheap it's all about you get what you pay for with this unit, Sweeeeeetttttt....... Ben

Morning Family and I just wanted to share some thoughts before I leave for Japan, as I gear up and
get ready for 2 great events over in Japan at Aomori and Uchinada, I go back to " one world,
one sky joined by kite lines" and think what a blessing this has all been for me. What a long strange
trip it's been, I have been able to take this kite from deserts to paradises, or better yet this kite
has taken me.... :blue-cool: Wow it sure has been good to be able to live this lifestyle...... Well
with that being said I'd better go and get ready, can you say street kiting in Japan..........
Ben
