what if I bring my 10,000 watt Coleman generator and hook that up to my 50 gallon air compressor? Do you think I could pump up my kite then? Not sure how many check valves or feet of air hose I would have to bring . Maybe a couple of Gerry cans of fuel too....

sorry ..couldn't resist...

I'm just wondering...if you jumped out of an airplane with a leaf blower on your back, pointing downward of course, would it slow down your descent?? :naughty:

Attach a hose to your car exhaust and rev it up!
