Thursday 3/12

Looking decent for East wind, and not necessarily just an early thing. If I go I'll be at Vann's Tavern I think. ChrisP.

It might be a rain thing though. (I don't like to get wet). Big change in the weather since the same time last week.

I'll try to join you early afternoon at Vanns.

Re: Thursday 3/12

I'm going to be going to Career Day at my daughter's school. (The one she now works at.) I will tell the kids what I used to do when I used to work. I'm going to leave out the part about watching the wind readings constantly and ducking out when it was blowing. But, that should be over early enough that I might make it out if the rain holds off.

Randy, leave the little kites at home. Time to get wet in the big people's pool. Wink

btw, who's idea was it to move the smilies around? Took me 10 minutes to find what I wanted...

Hi I'm Randy and I have Direct TV. I love the way it shows all my kite videos in HD.

Hi, I'm arrongantj and I have cable. I don't get to see Randy's kite videos in HD......

Chris and I had a good time. Light breeze that was fun with his long board and my wide board.

Water is still really cold. Came accidentally unhooked while pulling on the adjustable outhaul. Was fully hiked out when I did a bit of a Wiley Coyote when I let go of the outhaul and had nothing to support me but my front hand.

Re: Thursday 3/12

My brain was pretty much scambled eggs by the time the 3rd graders finished with me. I did get to Mary Alice and did some kiting with my landboard though. I was going to head over the Vann's but the wind kept dropping then coming back. Was pretty strong at times - was able to pull my landboard with a 1.45 m kite, though a 2.0 worked better. The last time it dropped (~1:30) I called it a day. What time did you guys sail? Dark and cloudy - my vids don't show much - even on Direct TV.

Randy, I think we both got there around 1:30-2. It was light while we were rigging but then picked up a bit - I definitely didn't have any trouble going upwind powered. Then around 4 it lightened up just as Chris and I were coming in.

I wish I could have been there... not at the lake, in the 3rd grade classroom. Shok

Re: Thursday 3/12

Good picture. Best moment of the day was when I told the kids I visited a gold mine once to meet with my client there. A kid asked how much they gave me.....(Told him - none - they paid me in money.). Then there was the kid who asked me if there was going to be flying cars.

The lighting in my video sucks, but I guess that's never stopped me before:
