Ummm -- doing my part for energy conservation?

Didn't think driving 3000 miles (and back again) for 2 hours flying was quite the right thing to do?

I really would like to fly with you, but maybe this wasn't the time for me.

--Pete : It would be great if we could fly together!!!Posted Image My question was really for those in the area!! We have quite a few fliers up here that aren't that far away!! So unless something was interfering ...............? Posted Image

I was in Portland the Jun 10th through the 18th, and wish that I had found this before then. I'm sure that I would have been able to make contact with someone that way, and known where to fly when I was there. I tried to make contact to the only kite club I was able to find in Portland listed on the AKA website, only to never get a reply. Next time, I'll be sure that I get on here first, and make sure that I let people know when I'll be there. At least I now know of someplace to fly!! Had a heck of a time trying to find some place I could get a kite up when I was in town.

Hope to be seeing some of you on my next time into town!!

I will be sure to post when I'm next going to be in Portland. When I'm in town, I rage from Scappoose, Vancouver, Boring, Sandy, and all the way down to Albany. And the coast if I get a wild hair. So I'll meet where ever people are.
I have posted trying to find Fliers in Montana.. None yet to reply

Sorry SV, can't get away today. I see a nice breeze is blowing, though. Enjoy!

Just pretend all my statements are prefaced with IIRC, AFAIK, IMHO, and end with "Just my $.02," okay?
(And stop asking for cookies, all you new darkside converts! It was all just a ruse to get you here!)
