Hi all, and Happy Holidays!!

I was just lurking on Facebook Wildwood Buggy Bash page.

I saw Rich had posted dates for 2022:

Spring April 10th - 17th
Fall October 9th - 16th

Hope to see everyone there!

hiaguy - 12-29-2021 at 06:29 PM

I don't wanna get anyones hopes up, but there's only 102 days 'till WBB Spring 2022
Just sayin'

Miss y'all.

Jack.Oh - 3-8-2022 at 02:14 PM

How much longer do we have to wait?

Roll call....

Kyle and I are going to be there Sunday April 10th. :bouncy:

hiaguy - 3-8-2022 at 08:30 PM

Jack, it looks like you and I may be the only people left around here :dunno: Come on people, let's hear from you!

Regardless, Ines and I expect to be there on Monday the 11th.

That's only 33 Days to WBB Spring 2022!
Looking forward to seeing you there :wee:

I'm here also Howard. Of course I can't seem to be able send posts from any Apple device...ugh. If not for text messages and this site, I wouldn't know when WBB is...lol. And I'm sorry to say I won't be able to see my WBB family this spring. Headed out of town for a trip with my wife...one we couldn't say no to.

I'll miss everyone and look forward to seeing many pictures.... Howard...please don't drink all the Puppers :)

Jack.Oh - 3-9-2022 at 11:02 AM

Yep call me stubborn but I'm not leaving.

Mark sorry to hear that you will not make it.


flyhighWNY - 3-10-2022 at 05:35 PM

I still check in here from time to time. See you guys at the beach. Sunday to Sunday

Mark - to post from your iPhone (or any mac) here you have to turn off smart punctuation. This site is too old to handle correct quotes.
Go to Settings > General > Keyboard and turn off Smart Punctuation
That will turn your curly quotes into inches/feet quotes "" ' and you will be able to post here.

As always I will play it by ear, but I hope to actually be there this time as work has finally slacked off a bit. (famous last words, I just jinxed myself).

Jack.Oh - 3-30-2022 at 07:00 AM

Less then two week. AAAAAAAH

So excited! I got a New Toy to try out.

Hello all, for those not on Facebook. Rich posted this yesterday. Sad News.

I personally did not know Todd, but it is sad when a fellow buggier passes on.

Here is a blast from the past.....In memory.

For those of you that have lost track of the important tings in life...

Only 9 Days to WBB Spring 2022!

Some of us won't be there, and some of us can't be there, but we will have the chance to enjoy those that can be there and appreciate those that can't.

Looking forward to seeing my friends again :wee:

kteguru - 4-3-2022 at 05:16 AM

Sad news indeed. It was always great to ride with Todd. God speed my friend.

Jack.Oh - 4-6-2022 at 07:01 AM

WBB less than a week... I am looking over all my gear.

I have the kites all packed in the car.

Can't wait... See you guys soon!

aronma - 4-6-2022 at 01:51 PM

I'm so saddened to hear about the loss of Todd Stevick. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. There are many people who've been touched and inspired by your presence. Ride in the sky Todd and rest in peace.

Jack.Oh - 4-9-2022 at 10:03 AM

Well, we are packing up now.

Kyle and I will be driving tonight.

At this time tomorrow hope to be on the beach!

flyhighWNY - 4-19-2022 at 12:02 PM

Hey Jack. Just FYI that peak got me
44.3mph on Saturday. Became too much kite later in day and could've down a 2m fixed bridle and been ok

jrhook - 4-20-2022 at 06:48 AM

Bad timing had me missing the fun last week. These past couple of days down here were ridiculously strong, the kind of wind that puts landboarding people on the endangered species list. Got in a bit of a sunrise session but janky is as janky does. Jason, if your brother wants to sell that 1.3m Rage, I'm in. See ya in the fall. https://youtu.be/LQpq8CWnEns

Brian that's great man! Was the wind onshore and how strong was it?

flyhighWNY - 4-24-2022 at 09:32 AM

Wind was on shore ESE easy upwind fast downwind. Started maybe 18-20 ended higher for sure. Could have flown 2m fixed bridle at end of day or 4m DP

hiaguy - 4-26-2022 at 05:26 PM

Hi there,

Last night (Monday) I tested positive using a home Covid-19 rapid-response antigen test. The test was duplicated this morning, with the same result.

Canada Health says that symptoms may start "anywhere from 1 to 14 days after exposure. Typically, symptoms appear between 3 and 7 days after exposure."

Given this, while it is possible that my exposure was during my time at WBB - possibly as early as Monday April 11th (at least I'm fairly certain that I didn't bring it to Wildwood with me - that'd be 17 days), it is more likely that I was exposed during the past 7 days here in Toronto. Currently, I am experiencing mild symptoms and isolating at home. Ines' test was negative and she's camping out in a spare room.

Regardless of my exposure timeline, please refer to your states guidance for monitoring and/or testing following possible exposure.

Stay safe y'all,
H

Ok my WBB family...I'm counting on you to post a few pics of the event. I missed it and all of you! Hiaguy, I hope you feel better soon. Sorry I missed seeing you and the Mrs.

hiaguy - 4-27-2022 at 10:26 AM

You were missed, but we hope you had a great trip.
Ines' Pictures will be posted as soon as I'm allowed out of quarantine.

Jack.Oh - 4-28-2022 at 07:56 AM

Howard, I hope you get well soon. Kyle and I are OK. Today has been like 14 days since we've left WBB. I actually just got my 2nd booster.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

Tell Ines we say hello!

Thanks. I'm glad you two are okay.

14 days already? Well, only 164 days to the Fall 'Bash :wee:
(That's October 9th everyone... Put it in your calendars now!)

As soon as I'm allowed out of my room (likely Sunday), I'll be able to get the photos uploaded. Trust me, I'm looking forward to it too.

"Hi. I'm glad they're okay." from Ines.

Thank you Ines and Howard! Great pics as always. Sorry I missed everyone this year. Hope to see you all in the fall!

Jack.Oh - 5-10-2022 at 07:41 AM

Howard, I hope you are feeling better. Great pics. Ines thank you for taking the pictures and editing, and Howard thank you for posting.
