1990 me, whiteley and a bunch of other drunks made a giant delta kite out of 2x4s, poly-sheeting and a cinderblock for a tail. and tied it to the winch of a jeep.

it flew well, with rope. but! if it broke, it would have defintely hurt someone.

that was my only kite festival

which is weird, as I like building and flying kites.

I actually WON the 'highest flying kite" in boy scouts, with a kite still hanging in my room in longview, made of 2 sticks, and? white garbage bag with the names of new wave bands written all over it in sharpie markers....
