    I have a couple of chapter members that are in a suite at the University. As far as I know they have an empty bed. If anyone is interested PM me and I'll connect you.

    My wife and I will be at the Blue Barn tomorrow PM. Stop by and say hi.

    Brad - did you happen to see the presentation by the commander of the USS Cole? Wow. Brought tears to my eyes.

    Do you think they can actually tell that my PA32 is a 1975? If she could pass for a 1971 we're in!

    But really, we're launching tomorrow at 0500 and hoping for space in GAC. But if the Fondue Lake is the best we can do than we'll live through it.

    I'll be in the homebuilt camping shelter enjoying a cold one if anyone wants to stop by. Wearing a red shirt that says Questair on the back and a black hat.

    Oh my God. I've seriously been missing out on this for the last 37 years?!!!! There are planes EVERYWHERE. Up, down, to each side. I can't even.... I will be here every year for the rest of my life. This is heaven.

    Hope to see some of you at the HOPS party tomorrow. If I don't die of over-aviation-stimulation first.

    ROFLMAO. That was my first year, too. Then @flyingcheesehead made me stay on the field until after midnight and I really got it.

    There's really nothing like it.

    Welcome to Oshkosh. NOW do you see why we say that you cannot truly convey just how huge this is, to someone that has never been here?

    I'm going next year. We can go in your plane, my new slow plane, or the powered chute. I don't care. I'm going.
    I'll bring the big tent. Watching from the sidelines sucks.

    LOL. I always chuckle at these, too. By the time someone walks a mile to where you're at, you're off gawking at something else. Always happens.

    The only way meetups work at OSH is with about four hour's notice you text someone and say "Meet you at X at 15:00". :)

    And even then you'll be lucky to make it there if you run into four other friends on the way. :)

    All this talk makes me so jealous I'm not there!

    Had my vacation over this week and was going to fly my 182 up, but got a new job and the training schedule unfortunately didn't coincide with my Oshkosh plans! Next year it is!


    Ps post more pictures

    Yep, I got a text saying "lets meet up today" but each time checked they were elsewhere...ended up running into other folks that we had no idea were coming though, so that was cool.

    I seriously had NO idea. I mean people told me and I saw pics, but I truly had NO idea.

    Just loaded up on coffee at the C2A tent and heading to the nearest bacon depot, the North 40 Cafe. If anyone else is there, say hi. Maroon tank.

    Was there for breakfast this morning. Didn't see this until now.

    In other news, is it really that important that folks depart during the thunderstorm?

    Hahaha yesterday I thought I'd stop by the FAA safety center to meet @Brad Z. I opened the door to walk in and bam a big forum going on. I felt like I walked right up front. I closed the door and backed out. Haha maybe later. Only person I've said hello to so far was @Jay Honeck.

    IMG_1016.JPG Now watching Mike Busch about prebuying a aircraft. He's not destroying my dreams of buying a plane for really cheap too badly.
