Another record by the Sand Yeti

Sand YetiMy 2012 Kite Buggy log shows I did 4337.2 kms in 71 sessions, which is better than my previous best year in 2008 of 4186 kms in 75 sessions
I sat for the equivalent of nearly 8 days (24 hrs per day) actually moving and 16½ hours not moving at all during 2012. My most used kite was the 6.5m Blade V followed by the 4.9m Blade V.
Possibly many of you will find keeping a log somewhat pedantic but I guess it stems from my earlier days of logging all my flights as a glider pilot. I would also log all my SCUBA dives in the Red Sea that was drummed into me by the British Sub Aqua Club.

It isn’t a lot of work to keep a log. I just download my GPS at the end of every session, which takes just a few minutes. I also download my track data on to Fugawi navigational software. That tells me exactly where I was & at what time. Now that’s being overly attentive to kite buggying details.
