  6. Exactly what I was trying to express, every kite is different, requiring different inputs, timing and subtleties... Glad you were able to find your unlock! 👍🏻
  7. I know @mystainedskin has been enjoying his!
  8. I want to be exquisitely clear here - I’ve seen a fair number of folks who fly that kite (and others like it) without any “random turtle” problems... I’m speaking more to a conflict with my personal style and taste, don’t let it discourage you from including them in the running - it’s all a matter of what you connect with. ✌️
  9. Like I always tell my TKL teammates... Quality of effort is first, results come secondary. 👍🏻
  10. Hi all, just popping in for an update... All the RV repairs and upgrades are holding strong - also put in new carpet, replaced the battery and a failing master brake cylinder, having a 2-way alarm put in today... Pretty much the last thing to fix is the shower, a couple of small cracks and some recaulking. In the meantime, I’m sort of scattered to the four winds with my various divided worlds: 1 - the family’s apartment (Luca’s home and some office tasks) 2 - the RV life (night parking, fill, dump, etc) 3 - my storage unit (other office tasks, RV storage) 4 - my father’s home (visits and parttime night parking) 5 - and of course, lots of upcoming travel by plane (storing RV, etc) Basically, draw a big skewed rectangle over all of Portland and that’s my map from day to day at home... No real efficient way to slice it all up, but I’m doing what I can. I’m not complaining, I’ll find a rhythm with all this but I wanted to inform everyone as to my status, and hopefully preserve the ongoing patience and support shown by all of you during this significant transition. Fly happy, fly well! ✌️
  11. Only briefly, but I’m just not a fan of that kite style (very deep sail, high cut, tuned to really stay on its back in a turtle)... Not saying good or bad, I just don’t like that feeling of being stuck on my back - I’m a little more old school / new school.
