Pretty much the same here. When there is wind, it's mostly been too much.

It'll just be me coming. Appreciate the hospitality!

You want to bring a BBQ? Seems a little odd. Does it fly?


The winds we have here, I'm sure a flying BBQ is possible. In fact, with a large enough propane bottle...

I was just kidding about the real-life BBQ and don't want to impose... but I don't have any set plans for the night. How's this sound, I'll bring some grub/liquid fuel/lawn chair if it's cool to hang with you folks.

Will do. I read your Windscape post in the Upcoming Events section. Looking forward to crashing your BBQ ;-)

When the organizers put the above video on the Windscape homepage I asked Shann if they would like a semi-official video guy, and she said sure. I'm not a pro by any means, just a shamelessly spamming videographer, who straps mini-cams on anything that flies.

I don't have a Rev but seriously thinking about it. Posting in the Rev forum has added  embarrassment as an incentive...I do have a parafoil (experimenting with KAP) and a inexpensive dual line delta.

Wind is usually something we have lots of.

We had perfect weather for weeks leading up to the fest, with decent wind everyday...but day one of the fest nature decided to give us a calm day with little wind. Still had a great time. Day two had perfect winds: in the morning overcast with a couple of sprinkles, and then in the afternoon the sun came out.

Don't forget to rate the video at MetaCafe so that more folks will notice this video.

Thanks again folks!
