    Because Its Fun!

    And life should be about simple fun pleasures sometimes. Children often have the best ideas. I wish we could let ourselves enjoy this stuff more often. Cm

    A parafoil is a good design for a kite because nothing ever breaks. I would fly one in the park at dusk during summer, but lately there hasn't been a good wind for it.
