Save Our Airports

Shout out to: http://www.avweb.com/avwebflash/news/Non-Pilots-Campaign-To-Save-Airport221483-1.html Even though I live in Massachusetts and will likely never visit this airport, I sent some money through PayPal to help them anyway. Too many airports are in the same position. My small contribution ma...

Re: #OSH13

OSH Tips, in no particular order: - Look at the forum/lecture schedule BEFORE you get there to decide what things you really want to see/hear. - Some of my favorite lectures have been: - WWII vets talking about their experiences - SR72 Blackbird talks - Anything with Burt Rutan - Historic flights - ...

Re: #OSH13

Hey, Turbo! Yes, I'm going again! And yes I have a camper again. So far it looks like me, Jeff, another Sonex guy, and my friend Dave from last year. There is room for one more (2 on the each of the wings; 1 down on the lower bed). I couldn't quite get my Sonex done in time. I'm working on the cowl ...

Re: #OSH13

As I usually do, I'm renting a trailer for OSH. It's delivered on-site and taken away after, so all I have to do is show up. No electricity, but it beats staying in a tent, especially if it gets windy or rains. We're 100' from a shower building, and a 5 minute walk to the entrance gates. It's there ...

Dave: I only have one comment on the show. You said that in the northeast between Boston and NY City we'd be lucky to get flight following 10% of the time.

Re: #OSH13

(Also raises hand...) I'm a lucky bastard :) . I (unknowingly) married a woman whose family has a lake house 90 minutes south of OSH. We vacation there for 2 weeks ever summer, and one week just "happens" to be during OSH! We get a pop up camper delivered to Camp Scholler for the week. I h...
