What a beautiful way to wake up. Drink a cup of joe and head to Pepin and find it full of kiters! The wind was nice with light gusting...snow was wet and sticky though. I rode for a bit...socialized and then rode until my kite didn't have enough wind...then drank a beer and socialized more. It was great meeting new people and seeing people I know enjoying my hood! One thing I've realized today is that Pepin is going to be a challenging teacher for kiting for me. It can be anything from a kitten to a gusty tigress with PMS and everything in between. I'm getting better at understanding and handling the gusts. Now if we can just get some more snow I'll be a happy camper...oops... I mean kiter!
