Got to Saint Simons early this afternoon and it's quite beautiful here weather-wise. We got groceries, spent some time in the pool and headed to the beach late afternoon.... I fine tuned and flew the cr@p out of my Symphony 2.1.4... what a load of fun just to static fly!... can't wait to get my girls into this!!!

Can't report on the JI beach as I'm still 20 minutes north of it, but the SSI beach is great. I'll probs get a sunset session in on Monday and Wednesday here on Saint Simons, hopefully towing wifey in the tandem some!

I'll report as it comes!

You mean the high speed beer delivery truck?


It is funny you guys should say this, because I was debating on whether or not to bring it back this year. It distracted me from doing some kiting the last two years. I am also dealing with less room in the car this year. We will see if I can pare down my packing enough to fit it in the car. I would love to bring it again! It definitely gets a great perspective of the buggies when you tape a camera to the top.

Hey Mark,
I'm in Toronto right now enjoying an Iced Cap. I'll also be arriving at Jekyll on Sunday. Does that make me an honorary member of the Ontario crew?

Downtown Toronto today and tomorrow, Mississauga on Wednesday. Man, I haven't even had time to check my own kites! Looks like I'll just throw them in the truck and look them over after I get there.

I'm just building a rack for transport and Jim likes building so even though he has a nice home made buggy he is totally rebuilding the front end and back end and will use existing rails for now and re-do those later. he wants to have axle adjustment and a some other things worked into the new design.
I'm still bringing the same chameleon buggy

Hey guys... can't wait for y'all to get down here... I had a killer sunset session this evening on Saint Simons... while it was only an hour (7:30 to 8:30) it was so awesome to be back in the saddle again. Not to mention it was my first extended session with the 12m Peak... kinda a shame since I've owned the thing for like 2 years and this is the first time I've used it more than 30 min... killer onshore at around 8-10 mph and just cruuuuuuuisin'.......

The in-laws are keeping the kids for the evening tonight and Wednesday, so (weather permitting) wifey and I are gonna get a bucket of chicken wings from Ingles, picnic dinner on the beach and ride the tandem as long as the sun allows!

Jim, come out if you can make it and I might save you a chicken wing :lol:

Usually we set in from the ramp or stairs by Tortuga JacS-P-A-M-L-I-N-K-s. There is another put in on the south of the island that is an unmarked beach entrance over the dunes by the south water tower.
