      From the first time I saw you kite at the Love In Dave I knew you
      were mad too!! :-)))
      I know you are not knocking Goshen, when you first watch that video
      it looks pretty mad!
      Sounds like lots of fun down there behind that rockwall, something I
      have to find up here, just found out I need a knee replacement!
      That was not one of my better days, but after I let it fully sink in,
      I realised I will always be able to buggy, and probably always be
      able to fly some sort of kite!
      Can't kite in choppy water at all now, need smooth stuff, and then I
      can last an hour os so, will be putting off the op for as long as I
      can, maybe the fake knees will get better?
      Take care of your knees kiddos!
      Have fun, cya and
