    Kingston 2021

    Wistful thinking just got converted into an action. Booked an el-cheapo cabin at the caravan park from Sunday 24th of Jan until Sat 30 Jan. See you there if you are there BobM
  2. I just realised that you are trying to organise a buggy event on Bathurst weekend. Who are you and what have you done to JDHot?
  3. I'm not familiar with the seller's name either. Looks like a PL MkII from the rear axle arrangement.
  4. I can probably make the Saturday, but will need to be back in Canberra on the Sunday. I'd better put air in the tyres between now and then.
  5. How are you at Skating? Hockey Stops in good order? Transitions? I would start with a smaller kite that wouldn't pull too hard to start with. By all means progress to a stronger kite as your skills develop. P.P.E. would be a must! particularly while learning - Deeply padded knee guards, elbow guards, double-sided wrist guards and of course a light-weight but durable (multi-impact) helmet. (I use all of this stuff for roller derby). Learn how to use the kite safety systems, and don't be afraid to bail out Hope you post lots of videos of you enjoying your kite and skates Bo
  6. Wow, I bought my first Flexifoil Stacker back in 1994, I didn't realize that there was a forum for this until just now. If you need a tester, let me know Cheers Bob
  7. Is anyone wistfully thinking about going to Kingston in 2021? I've had so many travel plans thwarted this year by the 'rona that I am looking at next year Hoping to get there (I found a route that does not go through Victoria) BobM
  8. I was just reminded that I should have spent this last weekend in Mackay, Qld.
  9. Did you get them to sign up to EK ?

    Reaching out...

    This lock down has hit the hip pocket pretty hard. My daughter was due to graduate from Disney University in Orlando in June and we were all going over there for a month. We had booked and paid for the airfares and were in the process of working out accommodation when all this s*** hit the fan. It cost around $800 to get her flights changed to bring her back to Australia and around $700 each (times 3) to cancel our flights (if we see any of that money). I was also going to do three trips the Brisbane/Gold Coast over the next two months and had booked some non-refundable accommodation -
  11. I had 3 trips to Queensland scheduled for the next 8 weeks, now all the events I was going to attend have been "re-scheduled" i.e. cancelled for now with no known new date. I was really looking forward to the two drives in the new car; the other was going to be a quick flight up and back over a weekend. My work has split my team into two groups, one continues to work in the office as usual, and the other works at a different location. Each of these two teams is divided into two sub-groups: one to actually attend the venue and the other to work from home. Last week week was my "offic
  12. I won't make it this year, too many other trips to Qld (April 4 Officiate Roller Derby, April 25 Play Roller Derby, May 23 Niece's Wedding) and not enough leave to link these together with a kiting trip :-( Bob
  13. Saw an advert for this event https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/kite-flying-festival-2020-canberra-on-sunday-8th-march-2020-tickets-91605517569 Might pop along to see what happens I think the 10am start might suffer from a lack of wind (but I am happy to be wrong)
  14. Awesome scientific approach and thorough write-up
  15. Just got reminded that I need to be in Canberra on the 15th ?
  16. Any NSW/ACT buggyers interested in getting together on Saturday the 14th of December and/or Sunday 15th at Shoalhaven
  17. My weekends are booked up until the first Sunday in December, but from then until the end of January are free. (Too much happening during the week to make to Kingston this year) The owner's manual on the new car says I should avoid towing for the first six months :-( so I'll have to borrow the wife's car for a coast trip
  18. I know it is a loong shot, but I will have my buggy and a couple of kites at Hawk's Nest (just north of newcastle nsw) on Tuesday the 12th on November. Anyone should feel free to join me for an exploration of the beach :-)
  19. Stockton beach is at the southern end of the dunes at Anna Bay near Port Stephens. It seems that the sand is moving north https://www.newcastleherald.com.au/story/6404117/its-more-than-just-a-beach-sands-of-time-run-out-for-stockton/?cs=13296
  20. Had a look at my calendar, and it is already full :-(

    Home safe after a 1600km drive. What a great time with great company. Now to bed before cleaning all the gear tomorrow before it gets packed away for the winter. Looking forward to next time.
