    After several years of talking about it, me and a buddy finally flew up to Oshkosh in my Tiger. It was a great trip. Here's part 1 of the video series I am making about it:

    Wow, that was awesome! I hope to make that flight from Fullerton to Airventure one day in my “slow and sporty” aircraft one day! Thank you for making the video and sharing!

    What a great video! We flew the other direction on Thursday before the show (Annapolis to Oshkosh). My first really long-cross country. Your video makes it seem way less boring. :D

    Wanna see part 2!!

    I absolutely hate your videos! Because they don't feature me, doing what you're doing. Now I have to go watch parts 2&3...

    I'll probably build up more rage after seeing them. Be prepared.

    Awesome series Bryan - I've had all these friends sending them because they know I own a Tiger. They didn't realize we are fellow Gangsters.

    Great video ... watched the others also. I owned a Tiger for 10 years, but haven't been to Oshkosh yet (hoping 2020). Flying an RV7A now, but do miss being able to get a complete look at the engine without de-cowling. Always loved the folding rear seat ... slept in the back comfortably using the cowl plugs as a pillow and the canopy cover as a blanket or pad on several bad weather stops.

    I commented on the YouTube page, but I must say that all three videos are extremely well done. You are gifted. I am curious how much experience you have doing these. I know they take a quite a bit of time to do well. The second one was probably the best inbound to Oshkosh videos I have seen. Thanks for sharing these!

    Thx so much for the compliment. I’m glad you enjoyed the videos. I have one more to make for that series but I haven’t had the time. As far as my experience, I am an editor in “real life” so it’s a pretty natural combination of two activities I enjoy doing.

    Since I was a photojournalist/editor for 20+ years as well, I kind of suspected you were involved in the profession. I really look forward to seeing the last one as well. Thanks again for sharing!
