JIBE 2017 Countdown!

 Pages:  1  

Demoknight - 11-11-2016 at 01:39 PM

I found a nifty website to give a countdown until a day of your choosing, and I choose JIBE 2017!

https://days.to/8-may/2017

pbc - 11-13-2016 at 08:33 PM

Hi, Errol! Gettin' antsy?

soliver - 11-14-2016 at 05:17 AM

Nice!

markite - 11-14-2016 at 09:43 AM

it seems to be set too slow ....

Demoknight - 11-15-2016 at 11:13 AM

Yeah, I can't find the number to call to talk to the guy that makes it May right now. I haven't put a kite up since JIBE. I have other hobbies that are keeping me sane, but my local beach is flooded most of the time there is wind, so I have nowhere to buggy for the past year and a half. The city hasn't put any money into fixing the beach, so I am in even worse shape than the other landlocked guys, because I don't even have a soccer complex or anything like that within walking distance.

Cant wait!!!!

JIBE 2017Countdown

acampbell - 1-3-2017 at 03:31 PM

Hey Gang.

Getting ready to update the website, but the dates, times and tides have already been updated elswhere here on PKF.

Some News post Hurricane Matthew..

Restaurants Latitude 31 and Rah Bar (same owners) did not make it and are closed. Word on the street/ beach is that JI Club Hotel will take it over. This news is 2 months old and no new updates.

The old Sea Jays in the marina of the river side of JI, which closed and then briefly operated under a new name has also closed. Zachary's Seafood and Steak, which operated on the Island until the old convention center tear-down and now on the mainland, has secured the rights to the property and is building it out anew. Zachry's is popular now on the mainland and I'm sure that they will do a good job. I'm sure there will be music.

Most of JI did well in the storm with mostly vegetation and some temporary infrastructure damage.

Joan and I have booked the Carleton Gritz house again and are looking forward, along with the doggies.

In the weeks ahead I'll reach out to the Jekyll Island Authority, catch the latest buzz, and report here as well on the JIBE website.

All the best and happy New Year.
Angus

JimSSI - 1-3-2017 at 07:09 PM

Y'all come!

soliver - 1-4-2017 at 07:11 AM

I'm ready!!!

Is Jibe 2017 at Jekyll Island or else where

It's still at Jekyll Island. If Angus moved it elsewhere he'd have to name to something like NAJIBE**.

Seems like too much of a pain.

slapbasswoody - 1-5-2017 at 11:46 AM

Just checked out the directions and 32 hours driving might be a little too much for me to come over this years.
Have a great time though folks, but you never know?????

we are only 20 hrs drive to get there so not as bad ;)

but at least it's drivable and not the higher costs involved in flying with the buggy gear (and taking less)

flyguy0101 - 1-5-2017 at 12:23 PM

Looks like I will be the only one from the family coming this yr- so trying to decide if I should fly or drive - 9 hrs by myself in the car is a long time- but looking forward to seeing you all either way!

Demoknight - 1-10-2017 at 08:23 AM

About 18 hours drive for me and Anna. Her family lives on Tybee, so they are the lucky ones that just get to hop over to visit their neighbor island. Scott if you drive, you get to bring more toys!

3shot - 1-10-2017 at 06:43 PM

So looking forward to seeing everyone again. If we relocate anything, it needs to be the beer social. Half the crew got soaked when the evening sprinkler cycle kicked on. Lmao
Good times

That was hilarious. It's the crazy stuff like that that makes the memories.

soliver - 1-12-2017 at 04:04 PM

It really is true what they say about time moving faster as you get older.... can't believe its as close as it is already!

I'll be bringing my new love with me (my mandolin) and would love some of y'all who play any instruments to bring 'em with... we can have a JIBE Jam 2017.

Demoknight - 1-25-2017 at 10:21 AM

I don't want to get you too excited, but I potentially have some musician friends staying at the camp site for a couple days either the first weekend or last weekend.

soliver - 1-25-2017 at 10:23 AM

Awesome!

soliver - 1-31-2017 at 07:09 PM

Holy Katz!... I'm all set with a complete 2 kite quiver and more excited than ever for JIBE 2017.... please May come quickly!

Carpool?
You can ship your stuff, fly in to Jacksonville, drive to Jibe for a few days, ship your stuff home and fly back. I went to WBB one year this way. Well worth the effort.
I'm making plans for the 2018 Jibe trip, you in?

Cheeks - 2-7-2017 at 08:27 PM

Folks... Let's set up a crowd fund to get Jeff to JIBE this year so he can see the leaves on the trees before they change color.

I'm in for $10.

3shot - 2-19-2017 at 04:57 PM

And Markite, by raising tall beers I mean those scrumptious faux pineapple habanero beers we loved so much. Man gonna miss you this year!

soliver - 3-17-2017 at 06:55 AM

I can't believe it's almost only a month and a half out!... I'm SOOOO excited; I haven't had any seat time since like October!!!... jonesin' for some buggy time!!!... I still haven't ridden my 12m Peak AT ALL!!!

Demoknight - 3-17-2017 at 08:47 AM

The last time I rode my buggy was JIBE last year... The last time I even put a kite in the air was JUNE! I need this so bad. We haven't had a good season here in Chicago this year.

soliver - 3-17-2017 at 03:14 PM

Wow bummer Errol!... it's actually been a good season here in Atlanta, I've just been too busy!... The biggest disadvantage of being a skilled craftsman working on your own house is that it leaves little time for playing.

JimSSI - 3-17-2017 at 03:53 PM

You never forget your first love...

XR+ with all new hardware, longer downtube - damaged pieces at the TIG welders.

Its been too long since I put a wing in the air myself....
Ashamed to be called a kiter. That is soon to change though. Almost in the final JIBE count down!!

Hey has anyone reached to that fellow named Nills (spelling)? He was the guy that came up from Florida last year as a first time JIBE attendee. Ate with all of us that night at the We Pub. He had the lime green PL buggy if you remember. He's not on the forum so was wondering if anyone has heard from him?

Jim you are going to love that VTT buddy :evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::cool::thumbup:

acampbell - 3-18-2017 at 07:43 PM

Have not heard from Nills. I'll search my email archives and reach out if able.

We have some first timers expected from Louisiana and Texas in addition to U.K. as well as some new locals.

Joan and I were out to Jekyll today and had a great day climatizing two new pups to the beach. Lumpy west winds so no kites but the seabreazes should be hatching in the next month.

Looking forward to staying on the island for the week of JIBE!

3shot - 3-19-2017 at 03:14 PM

Good deal. I hope Nills can make it back.

The new Black Betty ultra low wind beach cruiser::lol:

TEDWESLEY - 3-22-2017 at 10:34 AM

Just get yourself a tow hook for the buggy and yer good to go!

Not long now. Wife beginning to make a pile of stuff in the hall. We will be early this year YEE- HAW!

JimSSI - 3-22-2017 at 02:13 PM

Ted -

You remind her to leave a buggy-size hole in that pile, now.

Thanks for doing this.

3shot - 3-22-2017 at 07:27 PM

JIBE is talked about at least once a night at home now. Getting antsy.

flyguy0101 - 3-23-2017 at 08:57 AM

@Jason- that black beauty is looking good- I am trying to decide if I should bring my regular ride or my lazy man mtn bike (1500 watts of electrical goodness- I think the flat road cruising speed at Jekyll would be close to 30 mph without pedaling- might be a bit too much)
Cant wait to get there- wildwood next month then jekylll a couple of weeks later woohoo. Looking forward to hanging with my new roomies:thumbup: since the family wont be making it this year:(

3shot - 3-23-2017 at 03:33 PM

Scott. Are you still staying on Brice Lane?
Love stealing your garden hose.
I see our villa is all rented out that week too.

frankiter - 3-24-2017 at 10:17 AM

Bad news for Scott - he's going to have to put up with Chris and me for a week.
Good news for Scott - 24/7 access to Aunt B cookies.

Cheeks - 3-24-2017 at 02:39 PM

My buggy has been in the trailer apart since WWBB.:(

Bad wind and bad weather has kept most of us here not being able to go flying again.

Pulling it out today and going to put it back together. :D

Some decent wind is starting to move back in the area but the time to use it is a small window of opportunity. But I did get about 20 minutes the other afternoon flying static at the soccer field. Felt goooood to have the power back.

For JIBE this year I'm going to run my bug on barrows instead of big foots. My buggy was designed to run on them for the IBX at Ivanpah. It will sure make it easier to get it up and down the ramp.

Mounting them of Seismic rims with Kenda 4:80 x 4 x 8 rubber, grooved. And I'm putting in tubes will a small amount of slime for insurance. The buggy may be a little lighter, and closer to the ground. This will be a first for me on smaller wheels with this buggy. Should be fun.:P

Gettin excited and gettin ready. Plan to spend the week. Can't wait.:D

3shot - 3-24-2017 at 05:39 PM

I am beyond ready!!!

JimSSI - 3-25-2017 at 01:10 PM

Jeykll Island Report - 8 knot East wind, 3 hours of end-to-end park and ride with the 8,6m

The beach, she is perfect.

Y'all come.

soliver - 3-25-2017 at 04:20 PM

Just wait til you're resting easy rider style in that Black Widow, Jim.... it'll be even better!!!

Demoknight - 3-28-2017 at 08:36 AM

I am getting stoked! We have been talking about it nonstop with the girlfriend's family over the weekend I just spent on Tybee. We were packed really light because it was a boating and biking weekend, but we did pack the little 2.2 Snapshot to get some static flying in at the beach in the light winds Sunday. I still got it, in spite of not flying anything since June last year. Now to get my buggy legs back under me with a real kite over my head.

So you're seeing another island? We're devistated.

soliver - 4-3-2017 at 04:29 AM

I've buggied on Tybee... My first beach trip with a buggy. The south end is best IMO for buggying, but it is MUCH more crowded than JI.... that was a while back though!

TEDWESLEY - 4-3-2017 at 08:09 AM

Out with the ski and skate stuff and in with the buggy. 3wks to take off !
Holly booked us for two extra weeks this year before JIBE.
I'll miss some of the best local beach season, but somebody has to do it.

Demoknight - 4-12-2017 at 10:46 AM

Reserving my rental truck for the week today.

jimbocz - 4-12-2017 at 11:53 AM

I'm going nuts, the Home Office has my passport and they don't seem to be in a hurry to send it back to me. Without it I can't go!

3shot - 4-12-2017 at 03:26 PM

I hope they get that straight Jim! Booked our rental truck too. If I break down on I95 this year, it's Enterprise to the rescue:D

Demoknight - 4-12-2017 at 04:06 PM

Same here, Jason! I was trying to decide between getting a commercial van and a pickup, but I settled for a pickup again because I couldn't get a clear idea of the vans available as the website doesn't give many options besides the minivans.

3shot - 4-12-2017 at 04:55 PM

The commercial vans had limited miles too. At least the ones we looked at. It was a doozy if you went over.

markite - 4-12-2017 at 08:37 PM

Errol, rent a bus and pick up people along the way :-)
just like a mullet it will be all business up front for the driver and party in the back

Demoknight - 4-13-2017 at 07:43 AM

I would love to, but I am pretty sure the extra rental cost plus gas would quadruple or more the price to get down there. Why don't you just fly down for a few days! I will pick you up at the airport :)

I noticed the mileage on the vans too, Jason. That was the main reason I ended up staying with the pickup. The Chevys and the Dodges actually get great gas mileage to boot. I don't know what the hell Ford is waiting on. I actually like Ford trucks the best to drive, but man they are dogs on the highway. The Chevy truck I usually rent gets 25-27mpg on the trip down and back.

3shot - 4-13-2017 at 06:22 PM

I'd pick them.up in a minute from the airport too!!!

3shot - 4-21-2017 at 08:16 PM

IndestructibleYoungMan - 4-29-2017 at 06:19 PM

Any tips for a first time JIBE attender? Anything should I bring/be prepared for beyond the obvious?

acampbell - 4-30-2017 at 03:13 AM

Check out the JIBE website (click here) for tips and info...

Specifically: What to Bring (click here)

Let me know if you need anything else. Looking forward to seeing you there!

jimbocz - 4-30-2017 at 06:26 AM

One week before I leave and still no passport. Last week I got my Member of Parliament to call and tell the Home Office to send it back, with luck it should be here next week. As a backup, I've got an appointment at the US Embassy to get a temporary passport on Thursday.

I also packed everything today and I can't carry nearly as much as I thought. I've had to leave two kites behind and put one wheel in my carry on. No room for any clothes.

I might be selling a brand new helmet at the end of the week because I can't carry it back unless I wear it on the plane.

acampbell - 4-30-2017 at 06:44 AM

Yikes talk about a nail-biter. Good luck with the passport.

Luckily you do not need a lot of clothes here.

Based on recent news headlines you may want to wear the helmet on the plane anyway.

markite - 4-30-2017 at 01:30 PM

Angus have you had a chance to update the rules and tips for first timers? Some may arrive unaware of their obligations for buying first round and also providing some type of entertainment at the social night. Last year's skit was hilarious!
We don't want first timers to feel embarrassed so best be prepared!

acampbell - 4-30-2017 at 04:11 PM

Right. Especially true for LOCAL first timers like OldBen. Just wait and see!!

3shot - 5-1-2017 at 07:41 AM

So Mark, your saying set the new guy's chairs over the hidden sprinklers after dark? :lol:

PLEASE wear your helmet on the plane!

Demoknight - 5-1-2017 at 08:14 AM

Just do what I do and bring one or two shirts and one or two pairs of shorts and undies and turn them inside-out when they start to smell bad on the first side.

jimbocz - 5-1-2017 at 10:07 AM

Nobody is allowed to comment on the fact that I'll be wearing the same clothes every day.

flyguy0101 - 5-1-2017 at 11:16 AM

@jim- don't worry- I was looking at pics from previous JIBEs and it seems I don't wear the same cloths everyday- I wear the same clothes every yr:D looking forward to meeting you

Thanks!

By the way, how cold does it get at night? I'll be sourcing a cheap sleeping bag and I'm wondering how cheap I can go?

flyguy0101 - 5-1-2017 at 12:11 PM

the first time I went to Jekyll I think the low at night was 85 degrees but that was an anomaly- figure that the coldest it will get is in the lower 60s if I had to guess so cheap will work

acampbell - 5-1-2017 at 12:22 PM

Current forecasts for average low temps at night on Jekyll next week range from 61-71 F, or 15.5 to 21.5 C. Remember the bug spray just in case

JimSSI - 5-1-2017 at 06:15 PM

Sunday was crazy windy - SSE 22 kts gusting to 28 kts. Ted and I tore that beach UP. I felt seriously overpowered with the 3.5 - thankfully the Black Widow was a lifesaver. Not quite Kiteageddon levels - but close...

soliver - 5-2-2017 at 08:17 AM

I've started watching next weeks forecast. Looks promising... I was just telling someone today about Angus's secret sea breeze switch that he throws every day at about lunchtime... :wee:

It's been windier than average her in metro ATL too, Jim... I'm hoping it doesn't do that next week, I don't have a high wind engine anymore... I'm counting on the 6m Peak most every day.

Looking forward to seeing you guys!

Demoknight - 5-2-2017 at 08:24 AM

From what I can tell, it looks like 10-15mph most of the week. That should be decent breeze for riding, but light enough that thermal action can take over and turn it onshore most of the week.

soliver - 5-2-2017 at 09:17 AM

Precisely what I was thinking!

Errol, I think you and I need this more than anyone!

Demoknight - 5-2-2017 at 11:12 AM

Oh man, I am getting so excited! Dude, I am going to be so sore after next week just because I haven't used kiting muscles in almost a full year! My only local spot that I can fly has been flooded for the past year every time there is onshore winds.

markite - 5-2-2017 at 12:41 PM

less than a week to the 2017 JIBE - I'm waiting for Jason's clip from the last day of last year trying to pull off a backward deadman :-)


(just kidding with you, I know it's tough doing video uploads from your slow home connection)

acampbell - 5-2-2017 at 02:21 PM

Fun to watch the message traffic here. Waiting for a CNN news broadcasts like...

"Intelligence agencies have picked up significant background chatter indicating a possible event of unknown motives to occur in the near future in southeast coastal Georgia. Analysts are examining signal intelligence from the southeast as well as central, northeast corridor and Atlantic coast. Additional traffic from Canada, UK and possibly Turkey have alerted international allies...

TEDWESLEY - 5-2-2017 at 02:49 PM

I hear that there will be REACTORS coming. Maybe BEAMERS as well...

3shot - 5-2-2017 at 05:56 PM

Yes you did pull it off Mark. I believe you were flying your Spirit, and I do have the vid of it. I need to get it over to ya.

Haha just thinking of those two sweet gals last year that gave us the fried okra and nacho basket on the patio. Standing there with our faux pineapple jalapeno beers... Said we looked famished.... Of course we were kinda mangy looking after riding the beach all day :lol:
Good times. Sure gonna miss you guys that's for sure.

markite - 5-2-2017 at 06:18 PM

Yes JIBE has a lot of good stories and Fiona and I are going to be looking every day, well I'll check every hour, to see stories and updates from everyone. Going to be a blast for everyone.
Last weened Fiona and I were always looking at the clock and saying next week we would be ...... At this time. Really missing it, I really need some buggy time as well and can't get enough faux flavoured beers!

A bed sheet might be enough warmth. It's comfortable sleeping temps at night. When I camped I brought a light fleece blanket but usually kicked it off.

The no-see-ums can be bad at the camp site. If you are camping bring light-weight pants and a light-weight long-sleeve shirt to keep the little buggers from nibbling on you.

Jeez man, don't say that! I'm already nervous enough about what the border guard is gonna think when I land, coming from Turkey with a 2 day old temporary passport carrying 50 kg of what looks like pipe and parachutes. If they give me the rubber glove treatment they are going to find my GPS cause there's no space left in my luggage and I really want to bring it.

Thanks Philip, I am thinking of just buying a set of sheets rather than a sleeping bag. And I'll bring a long sleeve T shirt for sure.

Demoknight - 5-3-2017 at 10:30 AM

I have two Reactors. I had to decommission my third one because it had been related to at least one reported case of personal injury.

D Cheek - 5-3-2017 at 04:03 PM

I have a some extra sleeping space in my motor home.

An overhead bunk for a light weight person. 150lb max.

Have a pullout double bed that can sleep 2.

And a twin bed in the master suite. I also sleep there in the other twin. I snore but will supply ear plugs. :barf:

Keurig style K cup Coffee in the morning at no cost and micro/fridge.:thumbup:

I stay at the "Flyin J" at the interstate or at the Wal-Mart in Brunswick at no charge.

The price is right. Also we could split the cost at the JI campground. $45 a night but they have free wifi!

soliver - 5-3-2017 at 04:42 PM

Last I heard the campground was full FYI

jimbocz - 5-4-2017 at 07:42 AM


It's for certain now, I've got a new passport in my pocket! It's good enough to get me there, but lacking some crucial stamps to get me back home. I'll deal with that later.

JIBE starts for me on Sunday at 6:55 AM , Heathrow to Istanbul

I'm really looking forward to flying with you guys.

JimSSI - 5-4-2017 at 10:48 AM

Uh....Jim?

Jekyll is the other direction....

I believe you are joking, but for my own sanity I have to say that we mean the Georgia that was burned down by General Sherman in the United States Civil War.

Man it's almost time!! We should be rolling into Jekyll sometime around 3-4pm Sunday afternoon. Can't wait to see y'all again, and meet the new faces as well.

JIBE always seems to be evolving. "The pot luck" lunch went to the "weenie roast. And the "weenie roast" has moved out and needs to be replaced with a.....?

Well what do you all think about a "Pancake and Egg" brunch about 9:30/10:30 ish on Wednesday morning before low tide? A good morning breakfast is what we'll all need before a long day on the beach! :thumbup:

Bill of fare;
Fresh Buttermilk Pancakes hot off the griddle, farm fresh just layed eggs, little smokie sausages, fresh off the bunch bananas, Almost home made baked muffins or donuts, a cauldron of fresh DD coffee, freshly squeezed OJ and what ever else anyone would like to bring to the feed.
All prepared by a professional Chef ! Me. And I hope Angus will be my souse chef, and Michael Gaylan my right hand man.

This will be a family friendly event.:P

This feed needs to be supported with donations and tips. Before the event and during the feed with a generous donation in the jar next to the grill day of. All proceeds going toward JIBE expenses, permits, etc. Thanking you in advance. Leftovers will be first come, first served.

PLEASE PLEASE respond to this notice ASAP. Participation interest is necessary because We need to know if we need to load the cooking gear by Friday afternoon.

All buggy events have to have a GREAT feed! We need the fellowship and friendship, and great conversation about kites, buggys, families and the good life this event will provide. Let's keep this tradition alive at JIBE from this year forward "to infinity and beyond".:thumbup:

Again, we need feedback ASAP. Plans must be made.

That's a fantastic idea and thanks for stepping up to the plate.

I'll volunteer to go pick up any of that stuff in advance and front some money if needed. Let me know.

Wednesday can work for brunch. Yeah Davis I can be the boy named Sous.

Starting early we can muscle in early on a picnic site at Great Dunes park nearest the parking lot at the north end. That way keeping the campers nearby.

We have a new Sam's Club in town which could be good source for provisions. Don't forget the bacon.
