    Considering it was designed to be used specifically with aviation headsets and has the customer reviews from pilots of old ragwings to support it, I would NOT say it would work better with a walmart...

    They had one job to do - follow the procedure that had been published for over a month. Obviously too much to ask the entitled.

    First we have the ":mad: Out of my way, peon! " approach.

    Cool. Next year I'm bringing a Roman chariot powered by my emotional support Emu because of vision problems - I can't see myself walking around like a normal person. Watch where you step.

    Money. Same reason half of Scholler is off limits to tents. If you can't afford a fifth wheel and an electric site or have a generator to run 24/7, you're too poor and creatively discouraged from...

    We usually arrive Saturday before noon and that puts us 3/4 of the way to the highway. If you find a spot closer, ask yourself why it’s not taken. It’s probably a low area that’ll be ankle deep after...

    That or increased ticket prices next year to make up for the shortfall. And they know people will pay it for their "fix".

    I'm going to say no, that will never happen. Maybe a small heli-bus, but not personal transportation. The reason? Lawyers.

    I think EAA security is staffed by volunteers who got fired from all the other positions. Kinda like giving a kid a plastic deputy badge to feel important. Like me telling one of them there was a guy...

    This is going to be interesting, and potentially dangerous. Too many people have been brainwashed into thinking that everyone will need/have ADSB next year. There will be even more pilots with their...

    For the ugly, I'll go with people's behavior in Scholler. It's usually disgusting, but this year took it to new lows.
