    Sand in Your Undies at Kingston SE 2019

    Had a great run this arvo on the clay pan along with John and Doug. A little sticky as you head west and a bit bumpy out in the middle at high speed, but 104 kms of awesome fun. Bottom line is, the beach AND the clay pan are in brilliant nick. Look forward to catching up.

    Are you here yet @CasualRural Orange Superman is a Peter Lynn Astronaught - he’s pretty spectacular isn’t he? We had an excellent day out of the beach yesterday. Anne, John, Dougie, Maggie and I all had a swim whilst watching Chook get out the biggest kite (dooner) I have ever seen. He did a couple of trips from just up from the Drain to the Granites and John also put a kite in the air. I had the Blo-fly tacking and jibing the beach and was mastering some upwind and downwind turns as the wind picked up strength, with both Dougie, John and Chook also having a go. The gradually strengthening wind was just perfect to get back into it as I hadn’t been out since Kingston 2018 - Dougie got some awesome footage on the drone which I’m sure will be made into a video once we’re home. The night finished up with a pub meal along with Bull and Jen and a sing-song with Anne Yesterday was a good day with good people.

    It is with heavy hearts that we loose a friend from Kingston SE this morning. Robyn from Sandy Grove was taken ill earlier this month and passed away this morning. Our kite fly will be in her honour today - and her amazing spirit and produce. She will be missed by all the frequent Kingston Kite Flyers. Please join us in a fly for Robyn wherever you may be. Robyn , may you now rest easy. Photo courtesy - Sandy Grove Facebook Page

    Great to hear the positive reports. We will get to Kingston on Tuesday, and probably catch up randomly shortly after

    Had a look at the clay pan this morning with John and it is very good. We had a tiny bit of rain overnight and the surface is only slightly tacky in places. Over 100m out and I only have clay one one thong. Give it a day or too and it should be rock hard. The beach is super smooth and the wind is onshore.

    NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    Hi guys. Always keen for a meet and fly. Keeping an ear to the thread to see what dates are being put around for this meet. I know Rob Lukin has finally got his new car organised and is waiting on hand controls to be fitted for him. Needs to do a shakedown trip anyway. He also has to go to Melbourne soon and would probably be keen on a buggy if there was a meet happening.

    Thanks! There is an immense playa in central Oregon called Lake Alvord that especially hardy adventurers camp out at and ride forever. It is said to make Ivanpah seem like a postage stamp. The nearest services are miles away and approach to this playa is a long ways on crude dirt roads. You need to pack in everything, water and all. The surface of Alvord is described in exactly the same way so they must be quite similar. Folks that have ridden it say you can slide your turns and scrub speed like you can on a beach. You can do this on Ivanpah but bring some extra tires.

    Lightweight Buggy rims

    The benefits is performance, you will minimize the speening weight (weight in movement), the farther weight from the center of the wheel the more important it is... The tires are also very important, the lighter, the better... So, you will reach your maximum speed much faster... You can’t do this with plastic, the mechanical property are too weak. And I join you guys on the comment of the plastic rims are not perfectly round... I would say, same as bicycle race, you want to minimize the turning weight on your wheels, cause those are efforts you are working against to make the bicycle moving forward. 👍😀

    Tides are better for the weekends of 2-3 Feb, 16-17 Feb or 2-3 Mar. Can't tell what the winds will be doing at this early stage so I guess we settle on an date and hope the winds blow fair. I'm flexible on dates.

    Not sure about the path Bob as we haven't been to Sandy Grove for cheese cake yet. John H arrived today and Anne and I had coffee with Bull and Jen this morning. A quick shake down on an 11m2 R1 run today after lunch and as Bull said the beach is absolutely pristine without a bump all the way up past the granites. Tomorrow is looking like a cracker day wind and tide wise. Top temp of only 28 degrees. (only 25 today)

    Hi Bob, theres been many winter storms over the last few years which has eroded the the beach to almost claim the road as well the environmental greenies would only let them put sand bags there and were wash away in the first storm so this last winter common sense and local knowledge has sought funding and put in a large rock wall and rebuilt part of the dune system to enable the bike path and road to remain open once again marvellous thing local knowledge and not listening to the people in ivory towers who think they know best ps: sorry for getting on my soapbox but it seems to be happening in lots of situations Bull
