I've got to drop one of my boys off at work, then I'll be heading to N SW. I'll try to take a peak at SSW on the way by. I think there will be too much water until around 10:00. I sure wish I had that dry suit I've been dreaming of.

No I wasn't, but I coulda' been on the 9m easly.
no one wanted to go the extra 4 min to the other side, even lori bailed on me. And I'm not gonna land a bow kite alone ( launching is fine ). I guess its back to c kites from now on during solo missions. luckily I kept a 12m nitro which works great for that!
