    I'm getting into "Pre-Show" mode

    I've verified that my mom-n-pop motel IS still in business after all their Covid related financial hardships and my reservation is intact - and THEY were thrilled to learn that AirVenture IS going to happen this year. They really count on having a full house for that timeframe.

    I get my 2nd dose of vaccine next week so I'll be medically good to go.

    I can now 'officially' start gathering up all my notes and scraps of paper containing all the new 'old' jokes I hope to tell this year and start rehearsing.

    I've been socking away as many pennies as I can all year and have sufficient to cover the serious $$ it costs to volunteer as a tram conductor - an expense I consider to be worth every cent by the way. If I didn't truly love it? I wouldn't do it.

    And as always I can hardly wait for July to roll around. I do luv me some airplanes.

    YAY AirVenture!! I also do hope that all the international guests will also be able to attend with the lifting of pandemic related travel bans and problems.

    Oh, and regardless of your age - when you become eligible for the vaccine GET THE SHOT(S) please. We're all in this thing together.

    We are also getting into Pre-Oshkosh mode..... I just started my annual tradition of trying to convince my wife we should upgrade our camper to a new one before Oshkosh, and she has began her annual tradition of ignoring me.

    While driving past an RV lot I looked longly at a micro trailer and said “Boy, sure would like that for camping at AirVenture.” And I’m here to tell ya I got THE STARE. As my brain was slowly being reduced to guacamole I vaguely remember a voice saying “You’ve got enough toys!!” Sigh Well OK I did just buy a 3m RC motor glider.

    This is the treatment I get every time I start talking about another airplane.

    My wife put down a deposit on a new trailer! This year will be the last with the 2006 Toyota Sienna. I have begun to call it Apollo 8 because, by the time we get rid of it this fall, it will have driven enough miles to go to the moon and back (including 8 trips to OSH from Northern Virginia). Next year will will be the last with the tent (I think) before the new trailer is delivered.

    Now, however, is the time to focus on getting the Skypig ready. Some post-annual inspection squawks and then full court press on cosmetics.

    If I remember correctly it comes out around early May. Right now go watch the videos of the approach on EAA’s site. FYI it’s snowing in central Wisconsin, OK maybe it’s flurries, but what the heck!?!?!
