thanks for sharing, really enjoyed seeing the "roots" and discovering that the people are still just as wonderful and fun as in the beginning. I had no idea of traction kiting in 1994, but was flying revs and stacked delta stunt kites back then so i could scud on the beach.

Yes, this is super cool to have this window from our beginnings. I too was flying sport kites by then but liked the really windy days most when the kite had some pull to it. The buggy naked thing takes on more significance when the buggy has a seat made of webbing! :embarrased: I find myself concerned about the stones I hear pinging my back axle. :wow:

There were only 2 casino/hotels in operation. Buffalo Bill's was just a skeleton. The next time we were there in 1995 Buffalo Bill's and the coaster were in full operation.

Unfortunately I didn't turn away fast enough. Now my retina is burned with naked Corey.

Hey Sailors,

Aahh... it wasn't that bad. The first segment made it on MTV-Sports! We enjoyed years of reruns
ESPN used the second segment. Only aired once I know of. Segments 3 and 4 came from Steve Rogers, dean jordan, Morrie Williams and perhaps a couple of others. Never aired in public... except for that time in the bar...

The Nekkid Buggy parts were real funny. I figure most folks haven't been nekkid outside their bedroom and bathroom so having so many join the Unclad Ranks was very impressive. Like dean says "Looks like a nudist colony"

Great faces from the early days (19 years ago!) some we still see at events and others we wonder where they are now... I haven't seen so many spoked wheels on buggies since!

Great little trip down memory lane.
Can't wait to add more...


Safen Up! Buggy On!

"Often wrong... Never in doubt"
