    I am assuming he means what was once called the Airventure "NOTAM". (Since that infers gender as "male" as in airMEN, it is now VERBOTEN to use such heinous language. ) We must use the new...

    I may have to do something similar to what you did, logistics wise, this year, only from a slighter greater distance. Can you share what the process is to actually set up in Scholler that early in...

    The Perfect World (for me )

    So I have been coming to OSH since the 70's and have arrived via most conveyances, including cruising sailboat, but not submarine or Amtrak. I have slept under the wing (no tent) when the airfield...

    Randy, as I sat in the Interstate 195 area, one of the conductors going by pointed out the Oshkosh Cottonwood tree (or something to that effect). Was that you?

    I want to add that this event is the peak of my year. Always has been since the days of riding the "tram" from the N 40 which was then not that far north, and the tram was a flat bed farm wagon...

    Banned "conveyances" in abundance

    If there is a rule, I am all for universal enforcement. After Sunday night, many conveyances are not allowed on the grounds. The banned conveyances include (captured from website).....

    Ripon to Fisk

    I am hopeful that the new procedures will help our arrivals, but Ripon to Fisk is unchanged. So I looked up the Standard Railroad Gauge for the US. It is 4'-8 1/2". So when you are over the tracks,...

    I remember jumping on a moving "haywagon" pulled by a tractor, and that is how you moved around from parking to display areas. I remember NO DRINKS on the flightline, which was anywhere you needed a...

    Don't forget to print out a VAC sign. You can get the artwork for that on the EAA website. What I do is I use the other side of the sign for the VFR sign which you will need on your departure. The...

    I am a "195'er" and our four rows basically straddle the Magoo taxiway, as Ron said. My memory, which might be fuzzy, recalls that our northern rows are "parking only" with camping allowed south of...

    Well.....I saw him on two occasions. He is pretty busy, wouldn't ya' think? Possibly he was not aware that the Warbirds paid his salary. Maybe he did not have the proper attire.:rollseyes:
