One Handed Kite Flying
by Donald Hawecker
Hi, my name is Donald Hawecker. About 13 years ago (Sep 4 2000) I was coming home from the park, just finished flying. Turned out the park got hit from behind by a truck doing 65.
Well, after I woke up and found out that I didn't have a left arm and a left leg below the knee, I thought my fun of flying was over. My kites were in the rafters and I didn't even think about flying. Or even going back to the same park. I got to thinking I want to try again.
Well I been flying every day for 4 months now at Deaza Narrow Park in Riverside CA on Jupera Ave. I fly my stunt kite with one hand, and I am very good at it. I feel the high of flying again. Come to riverside and say hi. I fly every day the wind blows. And in the Santa Ana river bottom it blows good. Look for me you can't miss me.
As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...
"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)
