Got a late start today and wound up getting there around 2:30. I had no idea where to go so I chased down a kiter (thx for squeezing me in to my harness!)
-Headed back to the car to gear up and grabbed the 9M and headed back out..
-Wrestled with the kite for 75 mins or so (bladder had twisted inside the LE)
-back to the car to grab the 15M
-Wrestled with the lines as they were knotted bad
-pump tube broke
-back to the car for some tape


Finally around 5:00, nearly dark, i launched and rode for about 15 minutes. Wind had picked up considerably by then, but the snow was deep enough to to fight the gusts..
Overall pretty awesome.. Its either 8"of powder or ice depending on where you are.
