Nice Rorke...this place could use some stoke.

Re: Clinton Lake 3/14/14

All kite launches located around Lake Clinton are advanced and provide little margin for error.

Coming off the water is very limited to anything considered safe. Truth.

Have fun...see you soon.

Re: HIGHWAYMAN is laid up!!!!!!!

My path is no different than the many who have taken on the challenge of making themselves better thru hard work and sacrifice; but I cannot imagine the journey without the support of my family and good friends. When I got on the water my anxiety and fear were quickly replaced by kiting...the immers...

Thanks for the power slashes Ivo....provides fuel for the recovery.

Glad to hear your annual pilgrimage to Mecca for the 4th of July is lining-up; true Americana. Find a good artist and I will pay for the stars and strips tat on your bicep. 8)
