    I feel your pain,did Osh this year ,used appleton. Unfortunately they have been discovered,got ripped off at every turn,the price gouging was horrendous. This year flying into Green Bay and taking the bus to Osh. Experimental or light sport may be the way to go ,to save bucks.

    Definitely don't swear off AV because you sold your plane! It's a great time even for a plebiscite like me who can't afford one!

    I've been a half dozen times....and the last time I flew in with a friend in his plane. If I couldn't fly for whatever reason....I'd still want to go and I'd find a way to be there somehow.

    Selling the plane or losing a medical is a poor excuse for not enjoying a wonderful event....after all the week long show is not a participation event. It's an aviator's extravaganza.

    Heck I'd go even if I needed to get one of those motorized chairs and buzz around all over Whittman field annoying the masses.

    The thing about flying to Oshkosh is if you come in on Monday you're already too late. It fills up badly over the weekend. The one year I couldn't fly in the weekend before I waited until Wednesday to come in, no problem. Just gotta pick your time.

    Since this thread was from OSH '17, I wonder if the OP has reconsidered?
