Made it to Seaside!

Is the beach access at the end of Sunset Beach Road good for a car? What time will folks be out there Saturday? It doesn't look like wind will be around until noon?

Take some for me too Bill! I wrestled with the thought of the drive all day today (was working) but decided I better not make the run. Odds are in favour of a spring SOBB with family along with me so I thought I'd reinvest this hall pass into that. The west winds I saw forecasted didn't help make my decision any easier. I swear if we lived in Calgary I'd be across the border by now.

I'll be living vicariously through the forum so post lots! Can't even go sailing tomorrow unless I wanna get soaked and frozen.

Too bad you can't make it this time Kelly. I'll try to add some miles for you. It was a great first day, but overcast and showers so far today. At least it is not snow flurries like back home :lol:

Here is sand flea blasting past Bladerunner and I. The wind was SSW 8-10 mph most of the day so heading upwind toward the road access took a while for me but the run back to camp was good.

Rain. All day long rain. Hope it's dried out for you. I'm curled up with a gulf islands guide book waiting for a Guinness shepherds pie (rainy day comfort food) to bake.

Good times ! As always!

Wind every day. Even if it was side on. I have never seen the beach so wide, smooth and hard at this time of year!

Just like the down wind leg of the runs, It was all over far too fast for me. With solid traffic congestion from above Everret to below Olympia last Friday it took 10.5 hours to drive down. Home was the usual 7.

Thanks to everybody who made this such a well attended and enjoyable event! It looks like good weather for the rest of the week!

I have to say that being able to relax and get rearranged legally was an amazing feeling! :saint:

Debauchery around the SOBB fireplace can not be spoken of in Kite Club.


8-)


I'm sure as the noobie buggier of the fleet out sailing amongst numerous Zen-God-Yoda mode buggy owners launching 19m foils, and numerous beach wedding cars (at least 80-100?) and other good targets to aim for, I know I provided entertainments for all...........thank you Chris and Ken and Shawn and Eli and all you others that were like well mannered drill sergeants to get my folding P/L buggy and numerous foils and my grunting wheezing asss in shape. Hey, I went out there and didn't hit anything/anyone, + 2 rep points for me.

Pics to follow.

buggy camp rules.


what happens in buggy camp stays in buggy camp.


grins. My virgin cherry has been popped and I look forward to the next rodeo.

Mood: Anxious for SOBB!

[*] posted on 9-23-2015 at 02:58 PM


Howdy from another newbie! I found out about SOBB a couple of weeks before the event. I had never seen a buggy in action before in real life. Wow!!! and it was great meeting so many awesome people. I'm hooked!

I already have an old PL folding buggy that I had found on CL and with a lot of help from folks at SOBB (and since--thank you again, Jon) I am now able to buggy back-and-forth. It's not a pretty sight but man, am I ever happy. :D

Special recognition to
Jon Ellis - What a guy!
John from Vancouver - fixed me up with a 3.8 Ekko. Janie spent a great day with Donna.
Mark, John's friend from WA - Lots of good advice.
Aaron from Hillsboro - Gave me a wonderful ride on his tandem. :wee: (I need to learn how to fly a DP next)
Chris, a neighbor - Sorry I missed connecting with you...
Mike - I need a JoJo Instinct. Sorry I missed you on Saturday. The weather was kinda crappy and nobody on the beach by the time I got there.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of everybody next time. And it sounds like I better spend some time in camp next time :)

Thanks for the shot of my new to me Yak GT 14m! Bought it across the pond and it is an awesome day saver. Took me for rides when much less wouldn't have worked. Made the run from Sunset to Seaside with it even with a change in wind angle so I was close to upwind for my return leg. Custom colors really pop as well. Gray with Orange. No white like all kites should be unless it's a big white Silver Arrow 19m like Bladerunner shared with me.
