    Maybe Budweiser will hand out free beer in shame for the actions of their former CEO helicopter pilot as an apology to all of aviation? ;)

    If you believe the forecast from today, it's nothing but upper 70s and beautiful all next week.

    Just finished extensive shopping (without enough actual consumptive research) and selected the local craft beer I'm bringing:
    2017 Experimental India Pale Ale!
    (Thank you, Upslope Brewing in my hometown of Boulder, Colorado.)
    Excited to see you all on Wednesday!

    Okay, we have NEVER seen OSH so packed! We arrived an hour earlier than normal -- and got parked WAY out by the gate in the fence going to Friar Tucks!

    The chalet is set up, the flag is up, and we are all set! Stop by for coffee in the morning, beer in the evening, and the party on Wednesday!

    Not answering for Jay, but "unlikely"... you get used to the weather sucking at least one day during OSH... grab a trash bag for a poncho, and hike in the rain! (GRIN) :)

    Dropped a 6-pack of Fort Worth's finest blonde in your cooler. Hopefully I can make it tomorrow.

    I think B-25's were bombing the field. The air show was starting. I was using an iPhone so nothing would have shown up. Therefore, people with cool clouds.

    Sorry for the lack of pix -- I was told someone was taking real pix with a real camera and was planning to post them here.

    Here are a few! Thanks all, for braving the storms. It was a great night![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The Dallas Cowboy CHEERLEADERS fit into a cooler?? I 'think' that's what denver was trying to say, although maybe he wasn't? not that there's anything wrong with that........
