The court added 60 days to the disposition of the Lancaster Airport in this 42 month process. However I am back for more Wondrous Stories while I regroup.

Parts of the US are colder than Antarctica as a frigid polar vortex brings temperatures of minus 30 degrees

So base jumping and bat suiting in Antarctica is warmer than Hang Gliding the Warren Dunes near Chicago.

The earth quake was caused by the Sylmar triangle Stargate being left in the "on" position after Whitney Houston somehow release a new song from the "Other Side" after she passed during a "Hang gliding weather event". Its also strange that her song "Higher Love" could be interpreted that pilots love to gain altitude.

I've been engaged in a 3 front war but there is nearly verified victory on one front.
I witnessed the deed transfer papers being signed and now have seen a property tax bill.
The likelihood of the Antelope Acres flight park (the first USHAWKS flight park) being a reality is good.

The land owner briefly mentioned Ushpa type insurance would probably be a good idea.
It might even be possible Shga could administer the park to help reduce complexity.

The Antelope Acres solar ranch will act as a man-made thermal generator.

(My longest post in history)
Its all about 1984.
I may have won the war on all three fronts that have been limiting my hang gliding ability.
Confidence will increase as more information becomes available.

We know the story of the 1984 Rockband Syntax traversing the Sylmar Stargate Triangle to Feb 2012
and landed on top of Famous Musician "Jan Burton" and destroyed his career.
(He was as famous as Elvis in the other timeline)

We are working to restore Jan Burton.

But What happened in 1984 to open the Stargate?

The Philadelphia Experiment (1984)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087910/
Storyline
In 1943, the United States tests an anti-radar system to make the U.S. Navy ships invisible to the enemy.
Dr. James Longstreet uses his experiment in the destroyer escort USS Eldridge that disappears from Philadelphia.
The sailors David Herdeg and his best friend Jim Parker are projected to 1984.

Here it is! The first leaked video of the new USHAWKS Antelope Acres Flight Park (Runway Construction) 1,300 feet.
*** No USHPA involvement ***

It is near Avenue L, Avenue S, Garlock, Parker, El Mirage, Ord, Black Hawk, and possibly Twin Lakes which would look something like this:

I also want to thank Greblo for teaching me the Low Save as it turns out to have other applications in life.

When Ushpa discovered Operation Omega was from the Ushawks and was creating all of their problems they decided to wipeout the new Ushawks airpark. It was clever really I would never have thought of it. They used a powered paraglider and drove sheep to eat everything including the ground effect shield, and rattlesnake habitat. I'll post some of the security cam footage after we finish finding out if their are any side effects of combining Pfizer covid-19 vaccine and a rattlesnake bite.

The Torrey Hawks continue to work for fair oversight and access for all pilots at Torrey.

On April 18th, 2021 we gained a letter of support from the La Jolla Town Council. The letter is posted on our forum here:

A long time Torrey Pilot wrote to Ken complaining about USHPA's unfair expulsion of Bob Kuczewski (that's me). Here's part of Ken's reply:
Ken Andrews wrote:"I've told Bob many times that if he would stop attacking Torrey and USHPA, then I would work to get his membership reinstated so that he could fly at USHPA sites again. So far, Bob has refused my offers."
- USHPA Region 3 Director Kenneth Andrews, April 16th, 2016
Here's my message to Ken (sent a few minutes ago):
Bob Kuczewski wrote:Hello Ken (cc/bcc observers),

In a recent message to a USHPA member, you (USHPA Director Ken Andrews)
wrote:
"I've told Bob many times that if he would stop attacking Torrey and USHPA, then I would work to get his membership reinstated so that he could fly at USHPA sites again. So far, Bob has refused my offers."

- USHPA Region 3 Director Kenneth Andrews, April 16th, 2016
OK Ken, I'm calling your bluff. Please write up EXACTLY - and in the form of a contract - the precise terms and conditions that I would be required to abide by for you to work to get my USHPA membership reinstated so that I can fly at what you've called "USHPA sites" again. Please write this in an unambiguous and objective manner such that it would be enforceable in a court of law.

I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,

It will be interesting to see Ken's response. If he lists the "purported" reasons for USHPA's expulsion (things like "interfering with instruction" or "endangering tandem pilots on landing"), then they'll be forced to reinstate me because I've never done those things and would agree not to ever do them (as we all should). But if he lists the real reasons (things like "to be a USHPA member, you can't be critical of USHPA" or "to be a USHPA member, you can't speak to your City Council or testify in a court case") then he's going to show what was really behind the expulsion.

Ken's a smart guy, and it will be interesting to see how he handles this one. My guess is that USHPA (and Tim Herr) will urge him to find an excuse to avoid answering altogether. That's my prediction. But like I said, it will be interesting to see what happens.
It's now five years later, and of course Ken could never put his terms into writing. Ken was smart, but he was no match for the corruption within USHPA at that time.

All organizations change along with changes in personnel and leadership. The USHPA of 2016 was neither the USHGA of 1971 nor the USHPA of 2021. Time will tell if today's USHPA has gotten better or worse.

The A.I. outlined the possibility you have not been readmitted to Ushpa because Executive Director Martin Palmaz might actually be Satan.

As far as a hang gliding renaissance, I read General Motors expects a $1.5 Trillion economy based on "Powered Tandem Hang gliders"?

"GM’s potential foray into “personal air mobility” was announced as part of Cadillac’s portfolio of luxury and EV vehicles. It included an autonomous shuttle and an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, or more commonly known as a flying car or air taxi. ... Despite uncertainties around personal air mobility, Morgan Stanley expects the autonomous urban aircraft market may be worth $1.5 trillion by 2040."
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/12/gm-shar ... plans.html

So speed could be the issue that makes Hang Gliding surpass Paragliding. I read the fastest powered paraglider is the Ozone 3 at 45 to 51 mph.
The fastest Hang Glider I can find so far is 93 mph.

This post is political and mentions Gavin Newsom and Larry Elder so judge accordingly.








I was going to vote for no recall of Gavin Newsom for the following reasons that effect Hang gliding in Southern California.

1) Under Gavin Newsom construction projects have been minimal next to our landing zones.
2) Larry Elder said "My father worked 2 jobs as a janitor and now his house is worth $600,000 but that path is not available to people today"
3) Larry might be a great governor for California except he wants to develop the strip mine near our LZ and build houses everywhere near our LZ, Crestline and Elsinore.
4) Larry Elder would cut taxes and put a strain on California's Health Care system. Olive View Hospital is necessary for those hang glider pilots that pound in and need medical assistance. Please note Crashed Pilots admitted to Olive View(still alive) were admitted immediately and are still alive today.(after 2002). Today in Altanta GA many Hospital are diverting ambulances(No Room!!) If you drive there they will let you in though.
5) If anyone is going to shut down hang gliding in Southern CA the honor should go to BobK and his cause and not Larry Elder.

We want to right the wrong of banning BobK from Ushpa insurance coverage because he wanted to start a Hang Gliding organization and we want to right the wrong of insulting Joe Greblo's Stuntwings fast food commercial stunt because it was unrealistic.

The producers of the fast food commercial wanted to simplify the Fulton Recover system method of fast food delivery because of time constraints and frankly the setup is not that interesting.
