I tried, and tried, and Tried... to no avail!

I just can't get it to go the distance!

Do you suggest attaching weights so that it will toss the 250' needed for my lines? :confused!:

Oh, just thought of another thing I would like to see come out of Rev in the New Year.

Ben with a good pair of feet.

Hope everyone has a good Christmas.

Good One! The best wish I've heard on this stream!

May Ben, and all, have a healthy and happy holiday and the very best in the New Year!

The story is...
I'm sick and tired of people constantly photoshoping other women's faces on my body! :kid_cussing:

#72930 120ft lines

Posted by Jynx on 06 September 2010 - 10:12 AM

...and my favorites were my 200' lines...

I now fly on my new 250' lines! (The Gifts of Wings kite field at Veterans Park in Milwaukee WI has ample space)

Most of those who have tried them, Luv them!

Such an immense window and the enjoyment watching people trying to figure out where they're comming from!

BTW Theresa (The Kite Shoppe) makes up some awesome sets!

The Sky's the Limit!

...as a side-note: Watty introduced me to short-line flying (at WSIKF) as well. There's that side of the thrill too!

I freely admit that I was so wrong on this and so overthinking it that I must have set a new record for myself analyzing it all for six months. I do did not need to do that! But that is part of my mental process so it is what it is. With one under my belt and time to digest it all I can also tell people what you guys told me - it really is not that hard to wrap one's head around. I was a skeptic, now a believer. I can hardly wait to give it another go!


Bart and I spoke of this late Saturday, after the record was set, and WSIKF was winding down... I admitted to him (and others) and now to the (kiting) world that in the early days of this forum stream I was so excited to see all the kiters signing-up... then it got technical... and I began doubting myself and wondered why I (who flys solo 99% of the time) was about to spend the time and money to travel to Washington to sit and (probably) just "watch" this whole thing take place! Yes, I lacked faith in myself and the whole process.

I then made-up my mind to "delete" (without reading) the entire stream... and go for bust! ...and I'm so GLAD I did!

Between John and Felix... they made ALL of us, no matter how mega-fly experienced, challenge our doubts, and Just Do It! Though I didn't understand all the forum tech stuff, THEY knew what had to be done and were more than ready for it. The attempt was so totally organized, with Felix's preplanning and John's calm voice directing us, and many of the Greatest Skilled Rev'ers unselfishly standing-out to assist us... we did it! We achieved not only the record of 64, but achieved something much more important to me... a feeling of Self-achievement and Team Camaraderie.

It was totally AWESOME! …Words cannot express!

THANKS to ALL of YOU who made this possible for US! Posted Image
