  1. Welcome to kitelife. If you don't get someone bear you to answer here I would recommend heading out to the nearest kite festival and talking to everyone flying what you fly. You would find out who is near you that way too. Have fun. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app

    Mega fly at WSKIF

    That is the clear advice I was looking for. Thanks! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app

    Does one day early mean be there Wednesday or just that you need to attend a morning training any day before you join in? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  4. Thanks. I will fly alone if needed, but flying with others sure is fun when it comes together. Ya never know what you might find if you don't ask. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Hey, when in the week will the mega fly be attempted? I am trying to figure out some of the details and am unfamiliar with festivals, but want to participate in the mega fly. What days should I be in town if that is my goal? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  6. Yup, supposed to be 17-22. I think we will be headed to Padre island for an overnight, and then mostly Houston area. Any other way I should reach out to Texas quad fliers? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Will keep an ear out, but so far not hearing anything. You are 2.5 hours in which direction? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  8. Hey, I am headed to Houston TX April 27-22 with maybe with a jaunt to the gulf coast. Any quadheads in the area who would like to meet a traveler to fly? Any hints on where the good winds hide? I will have to spend most of my time with family, but flying in a new state with new friends is always on the Todo list. April Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Congratulations! Gonna go have some tea with my new companion: jealousy. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  10. You may want to get a tad more specific: what wind range do you typically get to fly in? Asking for a specific level of venting that will work best for starting on your home field would help direct folks too. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  11. While I am very willing to fly OPK, I would rather offer you the opportunity to fly mine. Come on little Djinn...if you go to the other guys you will be one of many many kites....if you come to me you will be one of the special few= each kite in the bag gets flown regularly. Come home to Maryland! Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  12. Oh man, Let it be me! I haven't gotten to fly a djinn yet....please send it to me. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  13. Sorry to hear your news. Sending you and your family a telepathic hug. While the situation is sure to be tough the amount of thoughtfulness and concern for other that you bring to everyday life is sure to help you all come through this as well as can be managed. There is enough space in my driveway to park your KYT 4GE if you ever need a spot to stop in Maryland. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
  14. I gotta say, I love the look of the snagless handles, but they don't make me happy when flying. I find myself avoiding them in my bag...the weight or balence just feels wrong. We talk about OPK and handles are a case when OPK can help you know what you like. However, before sure to ask what exactly it is you are using...I flew with OPK snagless handles before buying but it seems that there were not the same manufacturer.

  15. When I had my machine tuned up the guy showed me the weak points on the machine. While it is mostly metal (Bernina 830 vintage) it does have some plastic inside, including two parts that are gears. The repair guy taught me that if you are gonna buy a used machine you should open it up and hand crank the machine while you look at each gear for condition issues. Don't buy if you see irregularities in the gears. On my machine everything is good for now, but he said those gears are not made anymore for my machine and if they break I am SOL. If that happens I may have to do a crash course on 3d printing. [emoji6] Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using KiteLife mobile app
