RETURNING TO MY HOME.

Postby Chris McKeon » Tue Dec 14, 2021 4:15 pm

You Guys I am almost positive that none of You are capable of knowing just how I will Feel upon the Day where I fly for the first Time again. I mean how many of You spent over a Decade purely because of having suffered a Horrendous accident while Flying? Talking about Myself. Where The Day might very well might come in May or June. Well I plan on heading down to Southern California, to hook up with My friends Bob and John. Here is a Memory from oh about Ten Years ago. I was living at Kaiser Hospital in Vallejo California. Well My Physical Therapist replied to My Question where I asked Chris; "When will others be able to tell that I am One Hundres Percent Recovered>? Chris said to Me; "Only You will be able to say when You are One Hundred Percent Recovered". So using flying as a Barometer as to My having recovered. Yes I believe that I will be able to tell if I am recovered One Hundred Percent by when I having entered a Thermal that My Friends are already working . With Myself being the lowest Glider in the Thermal Please take Note; Traditionally as in before when I pounded on March 28th 2010. If UII were below other Pilots. My being Below My friends who were in the process of climbing in the Thermal I being lower than other Pilots always was a Transitory experience. For I would climb through them. Note I would Hook in Oh around 220 Pounds or so.

I tell You Guys something; Numerous times I have Found Myself being in the position of feeling as though I am trying to sell John on the notion that the Predator is the best Flex Wing ever Built. John, John Designed the Glider. I mean why does He doubt the Glider? It as it has been said many times before now; "You can't Win for Loosing".

If any one has contact with Paris Williams. Will You please ask Him to Contact Me? CCMCK@GOLDSTATE.NET 925-497-1059.

Bob and John will be there, yes of course, Chris. But please don't forget about me, I'm Frank, it's my condor 330 that you will be flying. That's after you fly in the Windsports Flight School's condor 330.

Looking forward to that day,
Frank

I used to know a guy named Frank. I think we flew at Point of the Mountain a few years back. I wonder what happened to him?

:srofl: :srofl: :srofl: :srofl: :srofl: :srofl: :srofl:

Only kidding.

I hope you're doing well Frank. It will be very cool to see you at Dockweiler when Chris returns to the air.

And I think you could use a few flights yourself!!   :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

So I know that I really should not put up a premature post regarding my hopes that I will be coming down to Southern California. For I know that My best laid Flight Plans, may not be laid down very well put down very Well.

But one way or another I will get My Rear-End down South. For I have People to see and to Meet. Pilots such as; John, Bob, and Frank. I think it will be great to fly. I will Whack Franks Condor really well. I will bring My new Kali Helmet. I so Wish that I would have Been wearing My new Kali Helmet on that Day; March Twenty Eight Two Thousand Ten.

Well it seems that I have some time in which to figure out How I will get My self down South. For I had My Drivers License taken away from Me because I was in a Comma for Three Months. But I have already taken the written part of what is needed of Me in order to get My Drivers License Back. By the way I aced the Test! It is great to know that My brains Cognitive workings is functioning well. I must first get My Doctor to sign off for My being able to take the Behind the Wheel part of the Test. Then take the Behind the Wheel Test.

But this getting My DL back is such a long drawn out process, that I might have to find another means of transportation down South.

Well I know that there are People/Pilots to see and to meet. I have a Condor Glider waiting for Me to Fly and to Whack, Thanks Frank!

Hello Everybody;

So it really is becoming clearer and clearer that any Pilots who might be flying Dockweiler Beach California should steer Clear of Dockweiler Beach. Should be ready to abort any ideas of their Flying Dockweiler Beach California. For I might be Flying My first Flight in Eleven and a half years now. So just be aware that if I will be flying at Dockweiler Beach. Flying there for any of You could be quite dangerous, Can You say Midair?

Chris McK.
I’ve injured my shoulder several times where I couldn’t
raise my hand above my shoulder. I used a golf club to
raise the arm with my good arm to get back my range of
motion. Then started raising a can of soup then slowly
adding more weight. I then had a friend over to lift
weights to use him as my measure since he was strong
enough to fly.

I am trying to earn My hopefully to be what will be My new Nickname. I used to ne called; "THE BIG GUY IN THE SKY" Yet eleven Years ago I pounded. I should say that I really Pounded! But that was then, and this is now. Well in May when I am down South at Dockweiler Beach flying Franks Condor 330, I will be known as the Phoenix Guy in The Sky!
