Brain Dead?

Postby Chris McKeon » Sat Feb 24, 2024 11:23 am

OK when I come down to Dockweiler in May. I will be coming down to Dockweiler Beach Sans My Awesome Predator! If I am able to Fly at all. I will not be Flying My Beloved: "Predator One Fifty-Eight. No even if I could get My Predator down South. I could not Fly it for John Must give My Predator an IRAN before either he or I Fly it.

I so look forward to Flying My Predator. I Yearn to experience the Predators Great Performance. I mean way back after I Procured My One Fifty-Eight Predator. I was so impressed by its Performance capabilities. I mean what a GLIDER! I mean even though the Predator drags Luff lines through the Air. I was called the; "BIG GUY IN THE SKY". So being that I Hooked in at a little over three hundred Pounds. I was always a threat in a speed landing Contests.

BOB, What I am about to write is all about My Predator, it is not about Me. I am not as You said, I am not stretching one of My Physical appendicitis's. Bob, I know that when it comes to how a GLIDER Performs or does fails to Perform as is almost always the case when My Predator, and some SUPER-SHIP Topless that both Gliders launch from the same Mountain on the same Day. there is a good chance that after both Gliders have landed. The Better Glider, which is the Predator will Fly Further.

Ok I realize that I am saying that the Predator is a great Design, It is. So, we will have top just wait and see if the Predator is still able to Outlast other Gliders by "Staying Airborne" Thus by staying up in the Air. The Predator was, and I hope it still is Capable of Out distancing Topless Super Ships while Flying Cross Country.

John was aware success that I had while Flying MY 158 Predator. I once asked John this question. This is after I crashed. I asked JOHN: "JOHN< I wonder if I will still be able to out distance Top=Less Gliders after launching from the same site on the same Day? John's response cracked Me up. "I don't know: Youve need to remember two things: One You are now Sixty Years old, and two: The have had Twenty Years to work on it."

A Pilot Friend of Mine once said to Me: "I simply Just Love to be up in the Sky Flying". I am saying now to Him. You need a Predator.

Ok I suffered a Brain Injury. I am had a Brain Injury. But here it is coming up on fourteen Years later.
I am a walking talking typing Post Injured Predator Pilot. Heck, I had a Brain Injury, I am not Brain - Dead.





OK I do hide the fact that I am, and I have always been a big fan of Johns Creation. I mean: Why would I not be a Big Fan of My Predator? Flying My Predator enjoying it's great Performance enabled Me while Flying My Predator to remine Air born while other Pilots such as My Friend Scott H could not remain up in the Air. I make this Distinction

Ok as the Title of this Post implies: I am Brain Dead. So any and all things that I Type out should be taken along with knowing that The Thoughts came from a Severly Injured Brain.

OK so When I pursued Purchasing My 158 Predator. I knew how hot it was. But it was not till I bought it that I discovered what great attributes that the Predator had. I take My Hat off to John Heiney and the Sail Maker Dick Cheney. I mean what a Glider, What a Wing, such a great Design. It is not just Me who raves about the Predator. You need to hear how Pilots such as Paris Willams, Zack Majors and if He were still alive Ken Muscio would have good things to say about the Predator. But these thoughts are from a: "Brain Dead Predator Pilot". I really should not Harp on this. But I really had Doctors running their Mouths Voicing their thoughts regarding how in their Non-Brain Damaged Minds that I would never rival a Potato intellectually speaking a Potato. And never to walk again. I was paying so as to have these Morons Wrongful Prognosis's. But as that old saying says; "That was then, and this now."

OK well this "Brain Dead Predator Pilot". See I was deemed to be Brain Dead By the Esteemed Kaiser Doctors, who's Prognosis's was that I would be not much better than a Potato deemed that I was doomed. But That just about Fourteen Years ago.

So I was just doing just one of My physical Therapees that I do in order that I will one Day be as Ab normal as I ever was. Play My Gibson SG. I will continue to Play My SG that is until I am able to Play it as well as Angus Young Plays His SG.

But then again it was prophesized by a Kaiser Doctor that I would be Brain Dead. Just how good can a Man who is Brain Dead can be expected to Play?

In a world of 8 billion people what percentage of them are HG pilots?
Statistically HG pilots are abnormal. (Would 4 billion HG pilots make HG a normal activity?)
Chris, abnormal is the new normal if you ask a HG pilot.

So Bill. I do not believe that You and I know each Other, But; Trust Me when I say that while just about Fourteen Years ago in spite of My having had enjoyed this Awesome thing that We do, Free-Flight. I had a very bad Day. So, coming back from when I Hit Terra Ferma with such Force so as to Shear numerous Brain Axons. OK so as I am sure that You do not know Me You will just have to take My Word for it. I was a fairly good Pilot. So, if You doubt what I am saying regarding Flying a Hang Glider. Why Don't YU ask our Friend John Heiney when You See Him; "John, so can this Guy Chris Mckeon, can He really fly well". I feel confident that John would respond by saying something Complementary about My ability to Fly My Predator.

I am so pleased with the fact that the Doctor who was tending to My Pounded Body was incorrect. For I Myself do not even like in any anyway thinking about how My Doctors Prognosis could have been correct. So I ask all of You: Just How Many Potato's have You seen walking around, or better Yet: Flying?

I just want to say that My Playing Gibson SG Guitar is flat out the best Darn Physical Therapy Device that I have used so far in order to rehabilitate My Left Hand. Presently Iam trying to improve the Mobility of <y Left hand, so that I have more Mobility up and down the neck of the Guitar.

I mean for Me to if I indeed Do Fly Again. If I Fly from some ridge. By the way I have already had to listen to My sister Who said to Me about a Phone call that She had with a HG Pilot friend of Mine. When Kathleen said to My Pilot Friend How I very well might begin My first Flights off a Training Hill. Then I hope to Proceed to doing some Ridge Soaring. For me to merely be able to stride forward into the Prevailing Wind and achieve Flight for I do not know? Possibly I will be Airborne for even a Flight that might be for a Lenth in Feet of say Fifty Feet. And the Flight lasting in duration for only a few seconds. It will be the Most thrilling Flight for Me in Thirty-Three Years. Not only that. It will be My most awesome Flight that I will ever make.

But My H-G Pilot Friend Condemned the very idea that I might be doing some Ridge soaring..

I must say: It is just so cool for Me to be able to Play My Guitar, to be able to Pick out individual Notes. When I first tried to say form a D Major Chord, "A "Chord. Heck any Chord. I could not do it. I mean My Mind would say to My Left hand My Hand with its Fingers to Form say an A Chord. It would not respond. If any of You Heard Me Play Ny Guitar. I practice every Day. Oh, I imagine that You Guys would, or heck Who Knows? Maybe You Guys will one Day. He's a terrible Player of the Guitar. But I will be Playing. To be able to Play at all is a genuine testament to the Ability of My Body to recover.

When I Fly again. My all-time Greatest Flight will be My next Flight. Even though I will have forgotten the basics relating to how to Fly a Hang Glider. I will have forgotten how to Whack a HG. But Bottom line: I will have Flown.

OK I feel that is appropriate that I put this up on This Brain Dead Thread. That is because, I have experienced Brain Damage. I want to say that for me to back to Rites. Yes, for Me I want to get Back to Free Flight. Yes, I want to be able to Fly My Beloved One Fifty-Eight Predator. But more important than flying, I know that it might seem Odd. But what I think of more than flying, is to go back to Work. This is so weird for Me to contemplate, but it just kills Me that on the 21st. I will have to go see a doctor over at Kaiser Hospital over in Santa Rosa. So I will undergo My Yearly Physical. What I will propose to the Doctor that I will see is: Would He sign the paper that says that I am Good to Go for being able to return to work. See I am a General Contractor. I have a Job lined up to Work for My Friends Construction Company, Bay Cities Construction.

I just want to say that I never say the Day coming that I would need a: "Permission Slip" in order so that I can go back to Work. I just wonder if I will need to get a Permission Slip in order to Pay My Income Taxes Next Year.
