        Got home around 6:30 this evening after having run errands around town for 4+ hours. Happened to check my mail box on the way in & came across my 2010 copy of the "Into The Wind" kite catalog...woohooo!!!!!

        Gotta give credit where credit is due...as they're the people who got me into 'serious kiting' back in the mid 90's (the Kites On Ice festival down in Madison also REALLY got my interest going). And although I no longer spend the mega-bucks at ITW...to this day, I still look forward to receiving their latest catalog to thumb through. It's kinda like paging through the SEARS Christmas catalog when you were a little kid - if you can remember back that far ;)

        PS: at least once a year, I ALWAYS make sure to logon to IntoTheWind.com and give them around $200-$300 worth of my business. It's the ONLY place I purchase my bulk Dacron kite line from as well. They happen to carry Ashaway braided Dacron...in my opinion, the only stuff worth spending your $$$ on. Wish my local kite shops carried Ashaway - but they don't. (Ya hear that Chong????? Nope...didn't think so)
