    Looking to log some cross country time so looking to make trips 50 nm from 3CK. Some Wisconsin flying for $100 brat sounds like fun. Any suggestions?

    I try not to make stops for a brat. My plane, my destination, not some snot-nosed kid's.

    Oh, you meant a bratwurst...

    Well, not necessarily brats, but can walk to “The Hangar” or “Friar Tucks” in Oshkosh. Great joints.

    The cafe in Madison’s FBO has GREAT food.

    Have to catch a ride from the FBO to the terminal, but Milwaukee has good brats in there. And cheese curds of course...

    And “Lone Pine” airport (I think...) had a WONDERFUL mom and pop diner.

    Ok fine, hard to find any bad food in Wisconsin...

    Thanks. Will have to fly into KOSH some day. My first time in a GA aircraft was from KDKB to KOSH back in college. I've been to Madison's Pat Obrien's Jet Room and enjoyed it! Get to watch the F-16s. Unfortunately, I'm late to the game and Piccadilly Lilly at Lone Rock permanently closed. Sounded like my kind of place.

    In these Covid times, a fair amount is messed up. I was gonna mention Lone Rock, sounds like another Covid casualty.

    There are the courtesy cars scattered around. Boscobel, WI is a nice airport, cheaper fuel, last there than had 2 courtesy cars. Mineral Point & Plattville had cars.

    If going soon I’d try to stay away from MSN & MKE. Watertown had walking options, not sure how much is open.
