Long Time Since I've been in the Bug. (Vid)


It was extremely nice to finally get a session in with the bug. I haven't flown a kite since last March. Yes, March. Been busy or lacking wind on days off. Haven't gotten my priorities quite right as of late. Today fit the bill. My day off, windy and the soccer complex was vacant. Wind was exceptionally craptastic. They were calling for 15-30mph. The tree line really made the wind choppy. Things should get better when the leaves are finally gone.

Agreed. Absolutely craptastic. It has been that long for me too. Gonna end my dry spell next month with Jeepersjoey and gang on Ivanpah!



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 ride, yup seems like ages since a buggy ride here too. That looks like a decent field, the speed you were going it was almost a minute of riding one direction. thanks for taking us for a ride!
