and Fun ; if i don't though , (the equipment is gonna be Gone, the next morning) ! :(

I would think with the heat and the sun in Vegas, you would not want to leave a kite to bake the valves right off those bladders.
I must live in a very safe unusual neighborhood, I can leave any kind of gear in my driveway for a week and nothing will get touched.
I've left our vehicles unlocked for twenty years and nothing gets taken.
I guess having dogs helps keep the bad guys away.

YES --- you should feel Good , about your safe neighborhood ; in Vegas, even
the gated communities, are getting broken into ! :o

On the bladder thing :
I have read a lot , on this forum, about bladders separating ; non of my Ozone kites
have ever had that problem , (and i leave them in the back of the locked car)
on the beach, when i'm out riding ! The only bladder that has a problem ; is
the one that's full of Beer at the end of the day . ------------ Yea, mine ! :lol:

It is sin city ...after all.
No offense but I would not live there if the rent was free, I just don't see any appeal.
A buddy of mine got ants in his pants to leave Austin and packed up his stuff and drove to Vegas.
He called me after looking around the area for the afternoon, and got in his truck and went to Phoenix, which I think is just slightly better.
Two people I know left Austin and moved to Phoenix, both want to come back but are so upside down on there homes value that they can't afford to leave.
I looked at a lot of places in the USA and Austin is definitely in my top ten for sure, and top five probably.

I could hardly be happier with how this turned out, but I had very nearly convinced my wife that I was just going to have to break down and by a hydrofoil (the Alpinefoils are works of art) when I got the call that they found my stuff...

Oh well... :baby:
