    Oshkosh 2019.

    I missed my 31st year of attending 2018. What are your thoughts/suggestions for 19, besides "I am going!"

    Not for 2019, but 2021, plan on having a beer when I pass your consecutive attendance mark.

    Unfortunately, it was not consecutive, I missed a couple, would have been 31 since 1984. Have fun with that RV, B.

    I’m hoping to drink another bottle of your scotch, but hopefully with you there next time!

    I booked my motel room for 2019 on the Wednesday during Airventure 2018 - good thing I did too, only 2 rooms were left, and the place is a full 50 miles from the event. Yes there are motels closer and some right nearby, but paying over $275+ a night is kinda out of my budget plan for the 9 days of volunteering- lol

    Hey, Randy. I missed you this year. I arrived Saturday morning, rode the trams. Then I rode the trams. I rode the trams some more. Then, after riding the trams I went home Friday morning. Never saw or heard a single joke. Sad. Maybe next year when I show up again and ride the trams. Thanks for volunteering!!! And, I will donate a boom box for Jerry's One Man Band Corner.

    I worked the late morning and afternoon/evening shifts, roughly from 11:00am to 8:00pm on the Blue, Yellow or Red routes. It varied day to day. Hope to see you next year.

    And for those feeling tram remorse at not hearing any of my crummy jokes:

    "I found out from a country friend why a chicken coop only has two doors... if it had four doors it would be a chicken sedan."
