Mistress of Glenda

Rachel does a great job running Glenda the Goodwinch. The winch is extremely powerful and handles the kite in as much wind as we've dared to fly in. We had a wooden case custom built to ship and store it (you can see it mounted on the base here) and found a just-right-sized cart at Tractor Supply to move it around. We put in t-posts to anchor the winch; in high winds it pulls at the anchor and it gets pretty exciting. There is a kilometer of 400kg-test dyneema kite line on the winch, and we've marked about 450m of it off at 25m intervals.
