Ok - this is NOT for you lucky souls who fly in! For those of us who "wheel" in, we can bring a bit more to make camp more comfortable. For us "heavy campers" here's my list for living in luxury at Camp Scholler. For reference, we drive in from Houston, in a Chevy Suburban, so we pack heavy and enjoy ourselves for 9 days of Oshkosh bliss!
Camp Kitchen Portable Grill Propane Burner Propane Tanks Grill Griddle BBQ Tools-fork, spatula, tongs, cleaning brush Cast Iron Skillet, saucepan Can Opener Spoon, Ladle, Meat Fork, Knives, Sauce brush Cutting board Sponge, Dish Towels Large Cooler for pantry foods Large Cooler for meats Dry Ice Tin Foil Freezer Bags

Extension cords, power strips Binoculars Tent lanterns with batteries Flashlights - little LED keychain lights Sun Lotion Bug Spray Leatherman Tool Camp Dry -waterproofer
Just to reiterate what others have already said - bring your most comfortable pair of walking shoes, because you WILL be putting a lot of miles on your feet during your visit, and a good pair of shoes can make all the difference in the world. SUNSCREEN! Even on cloudy days, you will be outside 90% of the time and you WILL get a sunburn if you do not protect yourself. I suggest SPF 50 or higher, and a wide brimmed hat or neckerchief to keep the sun off the back of your neck. Getting a lobster burn on the back of your neck on the first day here can really put a damper on the rest of your visit.
To be honest, most everything else can be purchased on site or nearby, so don't worry too much if you forget to pack something.
I always try to carry a bandana with me it comes in handy for those times I need to wipe sweat from my brow or neck or drool from my chin. Like the time I got to sit in a P-38.....

Unfortunately in science what you believe is irrelevant.

after looking at the long term forcast--think you can leave your cold weather clothing at home. Going to be a HOT Airventure !!!!!
