    I've had people come over to Vintage Ops absolutely livid about the mess that is this year's tram system. It's going to be a long week.

    It's been quite some time since there was one tenth of the attendance. The show had more attendees back in the 80's. I think it peaked around 1990.

    Both Uber/Lyft and Oshkosh cab work pretty well. I've had Oshkosh cab on speed dial for decades (I did have to update it when they changed the area code).

    Purple route seems to be the path the red line took when heading back south last year (which was confusing to a lot of people when it didn't just U-turn at the North 40 like all the other trams). I...

    Frankly, I'd wish they'd forgo the little extra profit selling beer on field nets them. We never had fist fights before they did. It's going to be even worse this year as the EAA has cheaped out...

    We use a zero turn mower with an extra "sidecar" mower deck. Takes about 2 1/2 hours to do our 3000x75 runway (and the extra stuff on the outside of the runway lights).

    I love the Romex electrical clamp in the top spark plug hole of the #1 cylinder. Definitely looks like a Continental of some sort. Just from eyeballing the sizes I'm guessing it's an old E-185...
