    I’m here, in the polished 170 next to the North 40 showers. Also wearing a yellow EAA Photo 18 vest. Stop me if you see me!

    Should be taxiing into our parking space in VAC now, but instead we just landed in KLOT (South Chicago). 4 barons were here and one pilot called the EAA to ask if twin arrivals would be opened. The answer was a firm “no” for parking in the grass today.

    We’ll kick around Chicago tonight and keep our fingers crossed it opens tomorrow. If not, may just drop into Fon du lac or Appleton and just camp there instead.

    Is Scholler letting the refugees come back from the parking lots yet?

    Maybe more than he cares to pay health wise based on those photos:eek::confused:
    Might be the first victim of flesh eating bacteria from a motelo_O

    I've had to stay in some really bad places, but you win ALL the awards for "toughing it out" with those photos;)

    Hell, they should be paying YOU to stay there:D

    I "practiced" 90 knots the other day, it's just fine with a notch of flaps.

    Scholler has devolved to a state of anarchy. My 15 year old called me freaking out this morning because some jag off moved our stuff out of our site and set up his camp while we were away. Our neighbors called security.

    Sure enough, I show up to see what’s going on and the guy told me with a straight face that I didn’t have my camping credentials properly displayed and he was staking claim to the site. (As he stood over my boundary rope - Credentials were in my truck because they were destroyed in the weekend rains). It was all I could do not to punch his lights out, but then I probably would have wound up in jail which would have really not been a cool way to celebrate osh19.

    Thankfully we had already decided to move and join friends camping on the outskirts of the N40. Otherwise things could have gotten really ugly.

    If any of you happen to know a guy from Ohio named Bob who camps in a crappy 80s vintage Coleman pop up and wears a non-military flight suit around, please give him my profanity laced regards.

    IMO, we should band together and remove all of his stuff from Oshkosh entirely. No place for that kind of crap here. :mad:

    I’ve never been in a Bo but I would have thought 90 could be done easily, even with no flaps.

    Seriously, Kent, i wish we could. Security was so bogged down with other crap that they didn’t seem to care. I’m still a bit shocked by the audacity of his actions, and the f-u manner in which he defended them. He literally moved my stuff - scooters, chairs, etc and ignored the rope that surrounded the entire site.

    I’m not going to let me it ruin my week. We moved to a great (better!) spot with friends outside the Super 8 gate. Right now I’m sitting on a couch, drinking a beer, watching the Aeroshell team. All in all, a good day.

    I’ve shot dozens of practice approaches at 90 knots with no flaps in both a 35 and 36 Bonanza. No problem.

    I’d probably put in flaps to follow the proverbial Cub at 70, though.

    I saw that.... The Cessna waited for the hard turn off, instead of turning into the grass. I cannot imagine how many dollars that cost.

    At the Crappy8 across the parking lot. From the look of the outside, you have my condolences.

    I was on my way up to ATW for a quick flight with the Phillips 66 Aerostars! It was really cool to see all the action underneath me as I flew over at 4000 ft. :)

    Hope they dry out enough for twin parking towards the end of the week so we can get in there!

    I'm on the ground and "confined to quarters" for a while after surgery last week (successful, thank you). I'm grateful for the EAA webcams this week! :)

    Now with ADS-B & the transponder left on, given the known winds at 1800’, someone may be nit picking if 3 knots off?

    I’ll be looking for 103.5 MPH, now for the CAS conversion.

    ATC: "UPS 747 heavy, rock your wings ... just kidding, cleared to land 36 Left."

    :p

    ATC: "UPS 747 nice landing."
    747: " ... No 'Welcome to Oshkosh'??"

    :D


    (Minor gripe -- I do wish they'd have dedicated cameras fixed on the runways. The Vintage cam started panning west over the grounds just before the 747 arrived and missed its landing.)

    Was watching one of the webcams and as soon as the 747 comes into view, the camera pans away from the runway :rolleyes:

    Yep. I don't care about watching Joe Flipflops picking his nose looking at the prop sign on a 1969 Cherokee 180. I'd much rather have the camera fixed on the runway.

    Seems to be conflicting information on General Aviation Camping...website says closed, but some people are getting in?

    Anyone got the accurate details? Thanks.

    Why in the world wouldn't you just fly 135 knots at 2300?

    Yeah, I don't know why more of the retract crowd doesn't do this.

    Made it in about 1115. The lady at FISK was so nice and traffic not so terrible, that elected to just fly the low route in at 1800’, but held about 110 kts as there was about 2 miles between me and the high wing ahead of me. Landed 27 with winds 360/09G16...felt like I didn’t prepare adequately enough for the dive bomber approach (“turn base abeam the orange dot, land on the green one”), but still got the “really nice landing twin Comanche, welcome to OshKosh!” from the tower.

    I was a little surprised though that the FISK controller saw me (ADSB?) at about Pricket and called me by tail number to ask where I was from (she’s from near me) and to clear to me to the runway. Goes to show how slow it was at that time, I guess. Never got to wag my wings though!

    I’m down in VAC at the end of row 97, if anyone walks through.

    I agree. EAA has the money to put up a few fixes cameras for the week. Hell, get a company to sponsor them. And fix the warbirds cam to stop panning on the tower it's attached to.

    Doesn’t the NOTAM say to do 1800 feet and 90 knots unless you can’t do so? I read that as do the low route unless it’s not safe for you to do the high route.

    From the NOTAM:

    Arrive at Ripon at 90 knots and 1,800’. For aircraft unable to operate comfortably at 90 knots:
    • Slower aircraft should use maximum cruising speed.
    • Faster aircraft use 135 knots and 2,300’.

    So if the aircraft can operate at 90 knots without being dangerous, you should. No reason a Bonanza or other similar retracts can’t do that. Put the gear down or the flaps down or both. I’m just fine in my 182RG at 90. Doesn’t handle like 140, but it’s still way above MCA.

    The 2300 and the 1800 crowds still have to come together, so you have to slow down at some point.

    How's cell service on the grounds? I remember at SnF earlier this year that there was zero cell service.

    Not horrible. My Verizon hotspot isn’t fast in the North 40, but still works. ATT phone is spotty on the grounds, but fine at the campsite.

    Exactly, its not like the 135/2300 crowd gets their own runway, you need to merge at some point.
