Sorry our occasional tirades on the NOTAM issue bore you, Dennis; will try to keep 'em shorter, but can't promise they'll go away completely until after OSH...
We take this tact because Jeb and I both have experienced flying into both Oshkosh and Sun 'n Fun in the company of pilots who had not a clue or what they were supposed to be doing or how they were supposed to communicate and it's a hot button for us as a result. While you note that "most of us don't go and don't care"
we consider it a safety-of-flight issue for the tens of thousands of humans who do
come to these events, both those in the arrival and those on the ground. And over the course of a five year period, you'd be amazed at the percentage of pilots who do make at least one trip.
But understand your point; we'll try to keep it brief, the next time...thanks for sounding out.
