This is Nick who I met at Bug Lite Park in South Portland, Maine. He was one of many kite enthusiasts that I saw that day. I had a chance to get up close and was amazed at the hardware this young man had just to fly a kite. He told me his investment for just what was using was around $1000. He said the man nearby with the big white van had probably over $10000 invested. I guess when you ladies tell your husband to go fly a kite he just might be dipping into the household rent money.
