Ok,... lemme see if I can post here without utilizing apostrophes...

So my very good friend will be graduating at the end of this semester from a TV broadcasting/Audio Video program at a local college and as a part of a class he was taking sometime last year, he and his group shot this for a project on -A person with and interesting hobby or career-...

After reworking it multiple times he has finally come up with this for his final portfolio:

Very good. I was wondering what happened to that project. Guess it was started about a year ago now. Some pretty impressive film work and editing there.

Great video! And looks like you've cobbled together a great bug there, Stuart.

So obviously this was done back when I pretty much flew Nasa Star 3's exclusively.

Coming in strong Spencer! Very nice video put nicely together. I liked it on a number of levels. In no particular order, you did some fine embassadorial work for power kiting in general. Way to hold the torch high! Second, it was nice seeing a quick picture of all the ladies in your life. That's a fine looking family. Third, while I dearly missed seeing you play your mandalin it was nonetheless enjoyable to see you in your mancave (which is very nice BTW). Lastly, it brought a smile to my face to see those kites. I recognized a few... :D



Kites:
Born-Kite LongStar-2 (3.5m, 5.5m, 7.5m, 9.5m, 12.5m);
Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)

Nice video Spencer. I still go to Norcross at least once per month and really should try and meet up with you and try flying that field :) Or better yet, should travel up to NJ and kite with our Wildwood Buggy Bash family :)

Thanks gang,... I will pass along the praises to my best buddy Kevin who produced it!

Steve, thanks for the compliments on the girlies!... and as soon as I can play well enough to post something I am not embarrassed about, I will share... there are a few mandolin vids on my Vimeo channel, but they are old and not all that great.

Bah... blasted apostrophes :(

Ahh! Sorry Spencer :embarrased: I rarely miss an opportunity to make a fool of myself.

Have any of your daughters shown interest in kiting? I could not quite get my girls interested, but my 5 year old son is getting the hang of a 1.8m Fluxx which is fun to see.

I always struggle with things like "Is it Spencer or Spenser?" and many other names as well.

HA, no worries!

My 2 oldest (12 yo and 9 yo) got into flying my 2 line symphony at the last JIBE, and my oldest continues to claim that she wants to learn to buggy, but will only stick with it for about 1/2 an hour before she's done. We borrowed a 2m 4 line but it proved a little too much for her. We will see what the future brings.

Awesome. My boy only lasts about 15 minutes, so you're doing better than me. But, I figure at that age it is better to stop while they're still having fun than to push the issue too much.

Wish I was closer to some of your guys' buggy festivals - they sound like a ton of fun.
