Well it was beautiful yesterday in Seaside, but the winds were flukey and shifted direction bit mostly S/ SW. Most of the afternoon it was too light to buggy. It did pick up for a bit then it got stronger and gustier for about 20-30 minutes then it died again- I spent less than an hour in the buggy most of it pretty mellow until the wind picked up- it was like someone just turned on the a switch and the wind went from sub 10mph to the mid/high teens I'm guessing- I ended up turned around going backward way to fast :o at one point- surely must have been a funny sight to see. Most of the day Caesar was having a blast running around while I played around with the Ace trying some bridle mods to see if it would fly better...nice chill day at the beach... yeah...:cool:

here are my tracks from when I was able to get moving in the buggy...though I don't think I was in the river! :P

A GPS, and then you upload it to you computer, in conjunction with a program like Google Earth and it shows you the coordinates.

yep Baluk has got it. You can use any gps software that will let you save or export to a .gpx file and then import that into Google Earth- then like magic, your tracks appear!

Just look up Sunset Beach, OR and Google should find it... if not, look up Seaside and then look at the large long beach just north of the river.

You know you'll want to come out for SOBB after that and see it in person :yes:

Hey tantor- we are neighbors! I'm in Portland- give me a shout if you are looking to meetup for a fly. I flown kites at Lincoln city, but I haven't taken the buggy down there yet- sounds like a good excuse to go :)

Hey that sounds good I am heading down over the 19th of April to Lincoln City. That is my B-Day i am heading with family but i could spend a Most of a day flying. I need to check out some power kites I only have some Flexifoil stackers. I am new to the four line kites and new to buggy, but a buggy is where i want to go. I have a good friend that is a engineer and auto racer Baja. I am going to ask him to build me a buggy They look straight forward. Would you be willing to E-Mail me some measurements and pics from your buggy?? Also what power kite would you suggest for a buggy I am not interested in jumping or flying at this time.

Hey Thanks for the response.
