Cub Homecoming Sentimental Journey June 20 -23
Just bumping my post from back in Jan.
With all the hype about Cubs to Oshkosh I hope that we all remember to pay homage to the birth place of most of the airplanes that we love to fly. I like going to Oshkosh every year but I drive a 1000 miles to get there. I have flown my Pa11 to Wisconsin from here but it was to go to another grassroots flyin at Brodhead WI. I like Kosh but I don't want to have my plane there, I go to flyins to fly, some times 3 or 4 times a day, that's not going to happen at Oshkosh. SJ is one of if not the best FLYING flyin in the country, not only my opinion but everyone who go's to a bunch of flyins each year, even a EAA vintage director thinks so. SJ is celebrating the 75th year of the Cub, the airplane this forum is dedicated to, the airplane that is not only loved but is like a parasitic flesh eating disease to some of us. So you want to go to Oshkosh that's ok but you owe it to your plane to return it to a little piece of heaven nestled between the majestic hill of central Pa first. Give your self time to get there, some show up the weekend before, I always try to get there by Wed because that's when the Big Band music starts in the pavilion where some of the best hangar stories ( lies ) are told and a little bit of adult beverage might be consumed
Meet at LockHaven and you will have alot more friends by the time you get to Oshkosh.
