      Steve and Eddie,
      Sorry we missed you guys, we were going for an early session with some sled skiing after. Coop took off from the snomo park on his 15m and ended up 2 miles downwind near the Pine turnoff. I couldn't find him when I got on top of the hill and all I could see was 1 kiter far far away. Thought someone had put in at the Pine turnoff. Sent Keith to get his sled and look for him while I went downwind across the flats to the kiter. When I got to him he was smiling and said " That was awesome, How do we get back?" Keith rode me back while Coop went upwind about halfway on my 12m, 'till he was spent. Superfun trip for beginners on large kites in too much wind!
      I leave for Manzanilla, Mexico on Sunday, see you all when I get back in 2 weeks. Yes, I'm taking a kite!

      I agree the first hour on my 15m was  one of the best hours all year . Effortless huge jumping . it looks like it will blow all night.  forecast is SE 7;00 pm to 2;00 pm 40mph from 2;00 pm to 11;00 am 21 mph and finely from 11;00 am to 11;00 pm 6mph . so if they are right we mite be looking at a early morning session , if its still blowing when I get up I going if I'm not the only one ..

      Well I would have to say it was great out there today. Especially if you got away from the highway and went to the north side of the ridge.  Everything on the side facing the highway was heavy and even some crust but the North side of just about any hill of larger porportion had nice soft deep snow just waiting to be carved up or dropped into from great heigts.   Had fun and rode till 5:30 but should have stayed out longer.  The light got flat and had to judge but then just after I started leaving the parking lot at the shed, the clouds parted and the sun made another appearance.  Anyway. I hope all had fun.
