    Bought my ticket
    bought my ticket. Peck is doing a top overhaul on his Bonanza to be ready. I will be there if I have to bicycle or travel at Skyhawk speed. Sorry to have missed the picture last year. We were looking at a Mooney. Imagine that

    Sunday through Friday this year, for me! May have to leave on Tuesday, and come back for a company event on Thursday. Details are still up in the air about it.

    I need to remember this. Bringing a OSH newbie with me this year. We would be more than happy to bring up some craft brews from around Iowa!

    Mmmm....craft beers.

    Extra points are awarded if you cannot see through the beer.

    Points are deducted if it's a painful IPA.

    Like I said, coming in midweek. Actual flying day is as always weather dependent.

    Two weeks and 5 days till departure!

    This is the point where the obstacles to leaving always feel insurmountable...

    Ah, I see you're increasing the dielectric constant of the RV.

    When working Fisk or the tower I always appreciated the exp's that opted for a nice visible paint scheme like your vs the normal Wisconsin summer haze white that so many little fast one's use. They can sneak up on you quick!

    That '8 looks great Jay. I am envious you have the time to polish though. ;)

    Mine has logged 30 hours on 11 flights in the past 22 days, and I am certain will arrive at OSH with a complete collection of every type of Midwest bug on the leading edges and nose cone.

    I tend to do the wash job after Oshkosh. Between the flight there and back and a week sitting in a field it gets plenty dirty.

    The Navion gets washed and waxed right before the Smithsonian fly-in each year. Some years I even got a friend to do it in exchange for being allowed to fly in with me.

    Let's see. We're leaving Saturday morning. But I'm on a family vacation through Tuesday and need to pick up my friend at the Atlanta airport on Friday evening. Which leaves Wednesday and Thursday to reinstall the autopilot, have the compass serviced, and reinstall it, wash and fuel the airplane, catch up at the office, cut the grass and service the pool at home, and seam seal the new tent.

    I'll pack and flightplan on Friday before my friend arrives.

    I probably won't get a lot done on the RV-10 this week.

    Mine is nearing the finish line. Added some more air vents so waiting on the paint to dry. Got it cleaned up today, fuel and pack tomorrow and depart Saturday.

    I've never wanted to be a passenger so bad that I wanted to wash a dirty airplane. LOL.

    After missing last year, we'll be stopping by again this year. We'll be bringing party favors again too.

    Any penalty for beer not from our home town? I don't have the useful load for three sixes (seriously lol). :(

    I'll try and bring some brews, but my pal hasn't been brewing and most of the local stuff sucks. The bourbon on the other hand...

    Hopefully, wheel up tomorrow @ 0700 on the trip to MECCA with a stop in OH to visit family. Then on to KOSH with a six pack each of some of the finest VT & NH brews.

    Even if I am able to fit any booze in my bags, I'm not gonna lie... it'll be well gone before I get to your party! But I'll try to pick up something at the grocery there to bring.

    No worries. The Pick N Save near the edge of the North 40 has a pretty extensive beer selection!

    T-minus 4 days till we launch.

    Planning on being there Wednesday evening. I may even fly up this year. See you in a week.

    So is Old Style considered craft??? ;-)
