Default Trolling motor, kids snowboard boots, my climbing shoes, 4.5 meter foil kite

I don't troll. Not going to start trolling either. It is what it looks like. Not much to say about it. Electric.


$50

My daughter's snowboard boots. She's been corrupted by skiing. I tried, but my wife wasn't interested in listening. I guess she can choose for herself when she gets old enough to do so. She was another year or two from wearing these anyway, because I got the wrong size.


$20

My spare pair of climbing shoes. I didn't wear them once this year, I guess I like my other pair better. I think these are 43 or 44. I wear a 10.5, and they were snug, like they should be. They are Boreal Diablo's, and they have a lot of life left in them, a bit worn in the toe, but still usable for sure. Great climbing gym shoes, but mostly they were used in Grand Ledge, and in Kentucky. Still some dirt from Kentucky on them.


This kite will tear your arms off. I got pulled down an airstrip on my face in the snow first time I used it. Second time too. And third time, but by god the fourth time I was only dragged on my side. It's a Premier brand, and it's a 4.5 meter foil, IIRC. Could be a 5 meter. You supply the bar and lines. I still fly and need the ones I have. eBay has lots of bars, nothing wrong with used.
No rips, no frayed lines, it's in excellent shape, I never crashed it into a tree, or the water, or a lighthouse. That was my inflatable kites.
Sorry for the lousy picture, but there is really no good way to take a picture of a foil kite in your basement. At least, not my basement.

I left my thrustometer at the nuclear lab today.

It has a number on it, and that number is 45. The new ones claim 40lbs, and this one is a bit older, so I would guess 35?
Sorry, I really can only guess.

TC tells me I should test it, so I did.
I hooked it up to the battery in the Jeep and it went whirr and tried to eat my shoe in both FWD and REV.

Don't know why I didn't think of that before. DOH!

That's true, it is, but I would be willing to give some flying time on some trainers, and instruction if someone wants to come and buy the kite. I have lots of time lately. Heh! I know of a great place nearby, as long as you have good snow boots, and there is wind.
I fly a seven meter when I need to get towed, and a 2, 3, or 4 meter when I am stationary and just want to feel some power. I used to fly 12, 14, 17 and 19 meter inflatable edge kites, but I got tired of driving across the state to get in the water. And I don't care for waves at all, caught too many edges. Go figure, it's not possible to kitesurf without the wind that seems to cause them. That's why I stick to snowkiting.

Yeah, so bugger valentines day. I can't even get my soon to be ex wife a card. Not that I would anyway.

A haiku for how much I need to sell this stuff:

Can't drive to Bundy
Overestimated Funds
Running out of milk
