Too cold to fly your rev???

Ok so i know there's been lots of posts lately from people, especially in the northern US states and Canada about huge snowfall, sub-zero temps and temperatures too cold to even think about flying. . . .

However for those of you who consistently get seriously sub-zero temperatures and who can't resist the opportunity to have a play, get yourselves some bubble mix and have a go at this. . . .

Sure... Just what I need...

First I go out, on our cul de Sac, and try flying my kite at 1am... now I should go out and blow bubbles in the freezing cold?

That would certainly set the net for me... the neighbors already avoid me!

But, the pics were beautiful... who'd think?

Ice cool Marty, really beautiful pictures....

you've inspired me to try.... "but how" I hear you cry in only -7 degrees C in mild Britain ?

Well you get an order in from the New Forest Patisserie.

The desserts when delivered come packed in dry ice (great fun) :D

I just need a bottle of bubble solution ;)

I agree with Danny. it's all about the layering.

On the other hand, there is a point of diminishing returns where the amount of breeze is directly proportionate to the increased wind chill.

I guess it all depends on yur threshold for pain.

Ahh, but one beautiful thing about kiting is that your back is to the wind. Ahhhh.....

At least my face doesn't get sandblasted when I'm flying!

its never to cold to fly .. we all know that from thos days at keansburg and liberty. as long as sammy brings that tea you can last all day

is this true? my "B" gets very "brittle" at about -40 i was wondering if anyone has ever damaged a sail and ifso how cold was it? I'm very careful not to land hard or bump into stuff. I dont think warranty would cover.
