Greetings from out here in the woods in the mountains of Virginia! I too have left the work-a-day world were I was a small cog in a large wheel. Sounds like you have some very interesting kites. Look forward to hearing further & hope you will post some pictures of them. You have found a great place for all things kite.
Welcome to the KiteLife, Ralph aka SHBKF
Wanted to share my Travel Case for all my framed kites. Holds all my framed kites Dual and Quad including 2 quad stacks easily.
Large bag is handles, smaller case is the line sets arranged by length..
I'm told the Skyline cases show up on eBay from time to time..
Really nice to get such a welcome – thank you!
However, there's very little of interest for me to put here as an introduction. As my username suggests, I'm a pensioner, living in the southern UK. Most of my life, I've been an editor, largely in medical publishing, and unfortunately that's made me a bit of a bighead, something I try very hard to repress. Not always successfully. I've made my own kites for many years, usually on the spur of the moment. Some have come from Peter Powell's book of plans, others are out of my own head. Some have been successful, others a flop – literally. But all have been satisfying, because I've always learned something new.
At the moment I'm waiting for some line in order to fly a Horvath Hybrid 130 that came my way last month. I'm also building an MBK delta, adapting it to be a bit stronger. And I hope in the spring to have a vented iFlite.
Good to be here ...
