    ZIMA???

    You cannot set foot in Sovereign Texas North 40 Territory with Zima. That stuff is...an abomination. ;)

    I believe you're thinking of Four Loco, combination energy drink and malt liquor. The FDA decided that two perfectly legal things (alcohol and caffeine) we illegal if mixed together. Gotta love the FDA. You can do the same thing if you mix your favorite energy drink with your favorite booze. Probably taste better too.

    Actually, I had one of those things before they were done away with, and it was a long way from bad.

    We also hope to attend your party, Jay, but unfortunately whatever spirits we contribute will probably be purchased locally in the Oshkosh area. Central Illinois isn't known as a a craft beer Mecca, plus our airplane is getting very close to its weight and balance limits. :)

    No worries. Pick N Save is within walking distance of the North 40, has a nice, big, walk-in beer cooler, and has an excellent selection of beers!

    Launch for KOSH 07-20-2016 @ 0700, hopefully.
    If you care to follow my progress:
    https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N82906

    Kiss my internet privacy good bye.

    If VFR pilots would like to have a record of your flight on Flight Aware it is quite easy.
    1. Just file an IFR flight plan, how ever way is convienient, ForeFlight, Web, phone, etc.
    2. Do not pick up the IFR clearance. When you take off ask for Flight Following.
    3. When the system starts to receive your discrete transponder code you will be tracked.

    It is the way the FAA system works. If you use flight following on a VFR flight you will be tracked while in the air. However, the flight record is not kept in the system after you land. The steps above will keep a permanent record.

    It only works if the controller you pick up flight following with finds your "IFR" plan. If he doesn't grab the prefiled one but creates a new one, it is no different than if you'd not bothered to file one at all.

    My daughter is 22, and this is her 22nd OSH.

    Our son had a string of 20 in a row going, but the Army had other plans for him. He will be back with us this year!

    Well, as long as you were enjoying yourself while I camped at an outlying airport because they were 'full', I suppose it's fine.

    I'm not seeing a proper emoticon for my take on the matter.

    Oh, no one lost a campsite due to the party. We just flow around the adjacent sites.

    Besides, all the neighbors are in attendance! lol

    Are alternative forms of admission acceptable for those who can't purchase or consume alcohol due to age or other circumstances?

    Sure! The beer thing is just for fun. If you're a non-drinker, bring a good soda pop to share.
