    • Finding GWTW is what really lit the kiting fire in me. Bought my first kite there. Fortunate to have corresponded with Steve a few times as the site came to a end. Hated to see it go and the loss of so much information but 100% understand.Can't say I agree with it being shut down but have nothing but respect as to the why. The complexities legal and moral of passing it on to someone else would have been a lot larger than I first thought.HUGE actually. Feel lucky to have had it in my life for the short time I did.Didn't contribute much at all to GWTW and thought early on I would have payed for a subscription. Wasn't Steves way. Signed up here and a few days later became a subscriber. Won a quad from the subscriber contest so now I'm obligated to keep my subscription going 10 years after I'm gone LOL.GWTW changed my life for the better more than I could ever explain.Kite Life has been the icing on the cake. The closing had been hinted at for sometime. During the last post it was said "Kiters are some of the nicest people in the world except for all the assholes".Going forward like today I'll try to not be one of those but like all of us at times I'll fail. Surprised at the sad smile and amount of tears that flowed down my face the morning I read June 8th 2019 it'd be Gone With The Wind.After much thought "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn".
    • Happy Father's Day! Now off to the quad line tuning videos.. 
    • I'm sorry the site closed on you without any forewarning. As I said, they had already closed registration by April. But, even as an outsider, I couldn't help but feel something valuable was coming to an end. 
    • Oh believe me, I'm not in the least knocking THIS site AT ALL. I remember meeting JB at Ocean Shores a looooong time ago and if it wasn't for that moment in time I would have never gotten into quad flying. Soooo, I blame JB for THAT!! LOL!! However, having been a member of gwtw since 2000 ish, I'm completely floored it's not only shut down but I never even saw chat about it shutting down. I knew there were health issues and I certainly hope all is well in that aspect.  Damn!  I don't have contact information for Steve so I'm genuinely concerned that he's ok.
    • These sites take time, effort and money to maintain. That's why when my daughters asked me what I wanted for Father's Day, I told them a subscription to this site. GWTW had already suspended registrations when I stumbled upon it back in April. I'm so thankful for this welcoming community.
