I haven't posted much on POA. Hi all. I don't know if this will be worth reading or just stream of consciousness spewing in lieu of therapy... My first Oshkosh was 2002. Two attempts to camp at OSH were unsuccessful and we stayed at Fond du Lac, which isn't for me. I have been every year since and camped in the N40, though not without a few diversions while we waited for spots to open up. Today I'm starting to get the gear together. Knowing it's the last time saddens me more than it should. But this year is the end. I bought the Archer in 1997. I've been through the new engine, paint, leather, endless fixes, the whole nine yards. But it has to go. The Navworx ADS-B fiasco came just after I spent more than I was comfortable with on the hardware. It looks like it will have a happy ending but there's no telling what will pop up next. I think that having a sticky seat belt retractor turn into a $1400 bill was the last straw. I see these rotting hulks that belong to guys who won't admit defeat and I don't intend for mine to become one of them. Everything, and I mean everything, works and I'm selling it while it still can be enjoyed by someone. I'm not going to tie it down outside and watch it slowly fade to dust. This isn't a sales pitch. I have a buyer. I hate camping and I mean I hate it. But there is something about camping in the N40 that is just magic. I will miss it. Yeah, I could drive and camp with the civilians but I just can't imagine that being an enjoyable experience. I'm going to miss the sunsets, the sunrises, the planes, the camaraderie, the adventure, and most everything except the inevitable storms. There have been plenty of things in this life that I didn't have the good sense to enjoy while they were still around but Oshkosh wasn't one of them. Each and every time I attended was great, minus the inevitable glitches and frustrations. And I have one more ahead of me to enjoy!
