  1. Believe it or not, we would have died for some sparrow farts on the beach this summer. Seems like the wind knew when our club flies were occurring and went away just for those few hours. September should be better or, at least somewhat cooler. It is a given, though, that the wind will die at tide change and pick up again after.
  2. Everything I've done since high school has been in a male dominated world; college, research, profession, etc. That's why it's nice to see the ladies around. Though most of the time, I hang out with the guys, too.
  3. It's good to see that there are a couple of women in the clinic. Sometimes it seems like kite flying is male dominated. You go, girls!!!!!

  6. I must jump on here and let you know that there is a kite shop in Atlantic Beach, NC just down the road from Fort Macon and most probably where you will find a place to stay. It is Kites Unlimited & Bird Stuff. It's located in the Atlantic Station Shopping Center. They have quad lines and other accessories. And they have some Revs and Veritgos in stock. And a couple of speciality Revs. They can help you out with whatever you might need.
  7. Skydog Kites has the Black Dog UL. I have one and really like the way it flies.
  8. Move the drawing date up to the 10th and you can bring me the prize when you come for the clinic. I wouldn't mind at all.

  10. I'd be afraid of both these deals. Do they say what weight the rips top is? 3/4 oz. is the best for kites. 1.5 oz. is more for banners, tents, duffles and sleeping bags. The motto I always remember is "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Too cheap may mean a unflyable kite. I have to look for deals, too, but those scare me.
  11. Phil does have ripstop on sale from time to time. Here's the link to his web site Fly Market Kite Making Supply. Also keep an eye on the Kitebuilder.com forum. Sometimes builders there have material they want to get rid of for one reason or another. Or they may know of other suppliers and sales.
  12. We put a roof top carrier on my Outback. A 72" model holds the long bags perfectly and there's still room for chairs and duffle. Suitcases, camera bags, cooler, dragon kites and banner bag go in the back. Also in the back is a step stool to make it easier to get in the carrier.
  13. It's gotten very quiet here. Only a month to go.
  14. Earlier this summer, the heat got to me and I couldn't make it back to the parking lot. I ended up sitting by the side of the road while my husband got the truck and came to pick me up. The park ranger saw me and stopped to help and would have called the EMTs if I had needed them. I had been drinking water and pouring it over my head and shirt. Since then I take no unnecessary chances.
  15. Glad to hear everything is better. Hope to see you again soon.
