    AirVenture 2018

    I started my count down on 5/20/17 and now there's only 322 days until the day before AirVenture starts ! If all goes as planned we will have a plane to fly and arrive the day before opening day. Of course that could change, we may be two days early or two days late. Anyway, I think about it a lot. LOL !

    Of course my wife thinks I'm crazy because I'll plan out a trip for my flying buddy and me to Sun N Fun or AirVenture to the ength degree but if she and I take a vacation I'm like, ok, whatever !

    Counting the days is a VERY popular pastime - lol - Go on any of the popular travel websites and try to find an 'affordable' room anywhere even near Oshkosh for 7/21-29/2018. Even that dumpy Motel 6 in Oshkosh (and based on the reviews it really is a dump) is commanding over $170 a night.

    Jeff Point has a luxury camper he might rent out if the price is right.

    I booked my motel the day I got home from this year's event. $60 a night for the 8 nights but it's 46 miles away.
