I'll be there. Camping in Camp Scholler as usual. I'll be easy to find: just look for a tent. That's me.

And I'll look for all the UCAP fans at the Thursday afternoon gathering, hopefully as successful (or more!) than last year's.

To get hold of me during the show, try twitter to @pilotjimg Sometimes I see those if I can hear the phone's twitter alerts over all that gosh-darned airplane noise.

Are the UCAP team airing any podcasts during the week? I read about a fan meet up on Thursday. Any details? I won't arrive until 6pm Thursday.

Hi Neil,

UCAP typically broadcasts a full episode live on EAA radio on Monday (afternoon?) and again at the end of the week on Sunday morning to close out the show. Brief "daily" episodes are recorded ad hoc on other days.

But as you are arriving on Thursday evening, you MUST PROCEED DIRECTLY to the UCAP Tie-down Party!

It has typically been held near the "Super 8 Gate" on the far side of the North 40, where the fence runs close to the Super 8 parking lot. (on the Motel side of the fence)

Looking forward to meeting you there!

Hi All,

My brother and I will heading to #OSH13 from Atlanta, Georgia via Delta. Anyone else flying out of ATL on Friday night? It'll be the first time in over twenty years (we started in strollers) that we'll make the "Privileged Pilgrimage" to Wisconsin without our Dad, who passed away earlier this year :cry: but we are very proud and excited to keep the tradition that he gave us alive.

Per the usual plan, we'll be flying in on Friday night (can't get off work earlier) to enjoy a night of fine German food in Milwaukee (@Karl's). Up early on Saturday to arrive when the gates open at "Graceland," so we can spend all day hangin' around the Field and hitting up the lectures, then off to Green Bay for the Packer's Family Night game. Sunday, we'll be back in OSH for the morning to pay our respects to our Dad's spot on the Memorial Wall, and then Sunday afternoon we're off to explore Madison (little brother may want to go to grad. school there). As always, can't wait to get to #OSH --Wisconsin here we come! :D

Looking forward to seeing all of you, and maybe next year we'll be able to take-off in time for the official "un-official" meetup on Thursday night.

Fly safe,

I'll be posting this on the UCAP homepage soon, but here's an update on the UCAP at OSH13 stuff.

The biggest (and really only) change from past years is that we've decided to combine the Preview episode (which we used to record before leaving for Oshkosh) with the Monday night episode. We'll be recording that one episode on Friday afternoon before the show starts. EAA Radio won't be running at that time, so we'll be doing it on our own. When I know the location I'll post it, but I also know that few people will have arrived by then.

We will be doing our "UCAP Dailys" most every day from various locations around the grounds.

The Tie-down Party will be Thursday from 6pm - 8pm. Probably at its regular location at the "Super 8 Motel Gate" which is also where the AirVenture shuttle bus stops. If that location changes I'll post it on the UCAP home page. All UCAP listeners are welcome, please join us.

Finally, we will be doing our usual Sunday morning show, from a very cool new location (which I'm not sure I'm allowed to identify yet), but I will as soon as I can.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Oshkosh.

// Jack

I missed OSH for the first time in quite a while last year, so am really looking forward to OSH13. I'll be arriving on Tuesday afternoon and leaving Saturday morning, so will miss the UCAP podcasts but not the meet up. See you all there!

Going to miss OSH2013 and the meet up because of media work in Europe. Have a FAB time people. The podcast is keeping me connected to GA issues while on assignment.

I will be there from about 6:30pm Thursday providing my plane isn't late into Appleton. I will be wearing my @pilot_ngb t-shirt!

Any magic about getting on and off the grounds at the Super 8 gate?
