    Who's headed to Airventure next week?

    Wondering who else is headed over to Airventure next week? I'll be there all week; teaching the covering seminars for Stewart Systems near the ultralight barn from 11-2 each day. I'll also be doing a painting forum on Monday at 4pm in the ultralight forum tent. I'll be camping in Camp Scholler ...... somewhere. I'm thinking near Stits and Cottonwood area but who knows; I will be easy to spot. So, who else is on their way? Hope to see many of you next week.
    Thanks,
    Marty

    I normally am there but a week ago the owner of the Mooney I ride in announced he is continuing on to Reno from OSH, too late for me to find fair commercial flight back east. I also prefer the full week on the ground there.
    If anyone has room for one plus camping gear traveling to the Northeast I might be interested.

    I plan to be at NH Sunday and Monday AM. Then I will be at Oshkosh Friday and Saturday. I'm doing the "Build Your Own Supercub" seminar/forum on Saturday, at 10:00 to 11:15 in the homebuilders hangar.

    I look forward to visiting with you guys at NH and Oshkosh

    Its all about the people

    Was about to post the same question Marty. My Dad, Lee, Kyler Winn and I will be camped by Theater in the Woods all week. Hope to get there on Saturday in one red and one yellow Clipper.

    If you get lost while flying, don't try hail a cop. Pick up the first railroad you find and hug it until you get somewhere.

    I'll be there, camping in Camp Scholler somewhere, arriving Saturday & staying all week. I've camped with the RAF the past couple years, but haven't heard if they have a reserved spot again. If they do, that's where I'll be.

    Eddie never posts but he plans to fly past the storms on Thursday to get to NH where he will stay until Sunday evening. He'll fly over to OSH and be with the STOL guys at the ultra lite strip through the week. He'd better get home on Saturday! I have a momma guinea hatching babies on Friday so I will need help herding baby guineas! Everyone have a great time (Eddie loves to visit with all the "old" folks and also loves to meet new folks) and fly safely.

    I’ll be parked around the STOL deal probably sat-wed. Yellow and black super cub. Beer in cooler. Help yourself. Headed to N.H. Sun AM and will probably have an extra seat if anybody wants a ride over.

    Kris and I just arrived Osh this afternoon.. Sunday we will meet with STOL pilots at Ultralight with the event packages.
    Hope everyone can come by and watch the fun, it is a well rounded group of pilots and aircraft.

    Each night before the demo there will be an informal STOL discussion starting at 5:30PM (thats Mon-Tue-Thur and Friday). Please come by and talk one-on-one with all the pilots!

    See you there frank 'n kris

    Arrived about noon. The most screwed up arrival I’ve ever seen. Controller at Fisk told everyone inbound to circle Green Lake. Then forgot about us. Soon the Fisk freq is silent. Still didnt get it.

    Meanwhile I’m dodging RVs cutting corners over Green Lake. Blasting along at the speed of heat.

    New voice comes on Fisk. And calls us in. Ten minutes of silence later, the first Green Lake holder arrives.

    First time I’ve heard controllers not telling us to rock wings. Two Cessna taildraggers arrive together. No wing rock, just “turn right 90 degrees NOW!” So we did, both us. Right into a serious rain shower. I figure he actually meant “about 40 degrees, which took me to the runway.

    Marshallers took me waaaaay south. Kept wanting to see my sign. Five times I showed the VAC sign. I got parked in row 149 (yes, a northern suburb of Fond du Lac). Got out of the plane and a volunteer asked why I was in contemporary parking....”You’re supposed to have a sign ya know...”. So I showed him my sign. The head guy said this is where I stay.

    interesting arrival. But, hey, I’m at Oshkosh!

    Smooth arrival in the Beaver this morning a little after 09:00. Overnighted in Phillips, WI last night after getting forced down by the weather. Tied down the airplane and ran over to meet Tom Ford and see his immaculate Cub. Sitting in Appleton airport now to go back to work next week.

    Been sent to circle the lake twice and both times when they released us instead of circling the shore line everyone cut straight across and converged on the same spot at the same time. Total cluster. Glad you are on the ground. Hope to be the same tomorrow.
