In December, I finally jettisoned the skis I got when I was a nanny/construction worker for the year after college. Michael needed them to turn into a Kite Buggy. Right now it is operating successfully as a sled/buggy, but the kite is already functioning.

Finally able to get your skis to work! Next iteration will have shorter skis and slight camber to help cornering/ lateral load of kite.

Waiting for the wind. In the mean time, gravity is helping out.

When the wind kicks up, there will be some more fun in the snow!

What do you do to beat the winter doldrums? Add your celebrations in the comments and don’t forget to include your photos and video in the MAKE Flickr pool.

  3. I am amazed by your creativity. I do some indifferent things to beat the winter doldrums. You guys are thinking different.I always ask the question to myself that whether I am creative. I must agree after seeing whatever this great blog of yours offers I am not creative as you.
