Vicarious Flying



I wanted a two-stringed maneuverable kite for my birthday so we went to Up Up and Away Kite Shop in Seal Beach where, coincidentally, Monty (see photo) had put the $139.00 Trick n' Track on sale for $99.00. I will try to post a photo of it in flight but it's been a little rainy these past couple days and I also wanted to picture a wildly succesful flight in my mind before the real first takeoff. Plus, is it really necessary to rediscover the electrical properties of lightning? I don't think so. It's a lot bigger than it looked on the wall in the shop when I assembled it in the living room. The technology has evolved tremendoulsly since the days when a kite was a paper diamond with a wooden cross and string to hold it together. And you had to supply the string and knotted rag tail. My birthday kite is made of space age sail material and carbon fiber rods.
