Anything near Pittsburgh?


I'm pretty sure I would have noticed if anyone who's currently active is in the general Pittsburgh area, but just in case I'm posting this.

As far as I can tell there's no good place to fly inside Pittsburgh with full length lines. When I was desperate I would take out my NPW on short lines in Schenley Park, but that generally didn't work too well until I was seriously overpowered.

I do know there's a kite club over at http://windstarkites.com/FlyPghKiteClub.htm, however I don't have a car so I haven't been able to join them yet. I'm hoping I can find somewhere I can fly without a car, but if not I'll likely have a car in a few months (or be somewhere else).

It also seems that no one kites on the rivers, but I did find reports of some people sailing along them, so I'd think kiteboarding could be possible.

Anyone happen to be in the area or know about anywhere around here that I could fly at?

kiteballoon just pointed out (in the IRC channel you should all join) that I'm only 2.5h from Lake Erie. Looks like as soon as I have a car I'll try and live up there on the weekends.

I actually have Thursday and Friday off, so if I had a car I could try and make it to Wildwood. Without one that trip is kind of difficult though.
