  1. Meeting with @acrop and her family at the National Air and Space Museum leads to a bit of indoor glider flying. They didn't kick me out!

    A Sunday Glide - The Long Way Home

    Generally not very good things happen when a line is removed from any of my kites. A truly talented person simultaneously yells OUT! When that happens lol Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    A Sunday Glide - The Long Way Home

    Unsure about that one, however you could get an old Ultra by TC Powers and go dual, quad and with a little work, single line Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    You'd definitely lose your soul for such a heinous act of kite brutality Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    April, I'll convince you to get rid of all those evil dark side quads and bask in the good pure single line glider side during my DC trip Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    This is a good read for anyone interested in Horvath and his kites. https://www.horvath.ch/en/balance-between-air-and-kite/ Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    A Sunday Glide - The Long Way Home

    When I first started flying, it was with a dual line kite and that was all I flew for well over a year. I then decided to go after quad line kites and flew both for years later. After a while I started to really appreciating single line kites for their simplicity and (generally) low maintenance. I'd fly a single line and also fly either a dual or quad at the same time. Generally I enjoy variety and there's just so many cool aspects to kiting I like to experience them all. I see many posts urging people experience "The Dark Side" when they enjoy dual line kites. I challenge people to consider "All Sides" of kiting. It's very rewarding to me

    Quadraflex

    You definitely have me beat by few years. I started back in 1993. I don't remember ever seeing that kite before.

    Quadraflex

    Wow, thats really similar to Lam's quad kites. What year was that kite made? I'm sure it predates Lam's Sent from my [device_name] using http://KiteLife mobile app

    @SHBKF Yes, that is Interstate 40 and 85 (right before 85 splits south and 40 splits west). @ACrop How far do you live from Reston, VA? I'm going to be there next week for a class I'm taking for work. Driving up this Sunday and leaving Friday. @Lynn Gray Pugh Thanks!

    A Sunday Glide - The Long Way Home

    LMAO, there are deer, snakes, raccoons, bears, coyotes, etc... in the area. Zero Alligators. I bought The Long Way Home and a Urban Ninja Building Set in November of last year. I bought the I'll Be Back, Darling kites in March but only recently received them. So 4 total, however only 3 were built by him, the Ninja was built by me. Horvath kites, aren't cheap. But in my opinion worth it. There's really nothing like the experience of flying The Long Way Home on a windless day (unlike the video) and there's plenty of room.
