    My motel is a 50 mile one-way run - 25 will seem like nothing. I'm interested to read your review of the cabins after AirVenture - I've seen them listed as an option on booking.com for several years...

    Absolutely you can. Or.. just grab a yellow tram down to the Tower switch to a green tram down to the bus park and take an appropriate round trip into town. I believe there IS a small fee each way?

    Looks like the "nearest" Uber/Lyft dropoff to Vintage is on Poberezny at the far westmost end of Schaick Road? There is also a spot across from the Bus Park. That might be the closest one to a tram...

    If memory serves, the one-day wristband covers Sunday & Monday? I always have the week-long one so I'm not positive.

    I would suggest staying at an acceptable-to-you motel on the main road going to Milwaukee, but a bit before you get near the city itself to avoid the normal traffic congestion and confusion. As Carl...

    The welcome respite we can provide our passengers is one of the best parts of the job. I have a wonky knee myself and ride the trams too to get from one area of interest to another.

    I believe the Oshkosh Fire Marshall has determined that 375,000 guests on the grounds at one time each day is the maximum safety limit..........I could be mistaken.

    We've asked them every year but the powers that be at EAA AirVenture signage must have it on very LOW priority. All the conductors and sometimes the tractor drivers too answer this #1 question, all...

    Semantics is/are key to the conundrum. Was it two years ago now that they decided to call both trams AND buses 'shuttles'? I dunno why - I refuse to yield to conventions and still call myself a tram...

    Interesting vintage tool find. To my untrained eye it "looks like" that 1/2 square drive has been there since the tool was made? Perhaps it had a different use to a 1940's AP? Next year will be Snap...

    I'm a tram conductor myself, and as to transportation options once at AirVenture here are all the possibilities - yes the on-site school buses and John Deere pulled trams are indeed free.
