Default Anyone else in Oshkosh?

Flew in today with dad and my daughter, camping for the week under the wing of the plane.

No, but I'd like to at least once. Is that a 182RG?

Nice bird. Notice that it’s got no wing strut, thus a Cardinal.

Never been. Would definitely be cool. Have fun. Pretty crazy that a small eastern Wisconsin airport gets the designation of world’s busiest for air traffic for a week every year.

I’m not there, but if it’s cool enough to camp tent in July, it’s waaaayy better than east Texas right now. Heck I can’t be outside for more than 15 min without working in the yard or messing with animals, that way I feel like I earned the soaking wet shirt and shorts. Hate standing in the shade doing absolutely nothing and sweating! Coach

Don't know, we always fly in and tent camp next to the plane. There is a camp ground at the airport for RVs as well.

There are RV areas all around the airfield. They fill up pretty fast and are not cheap, but there are always spots available. And every small town within 100 miles has one or two. It's kinda a big deal.

Sure could go for some roasted corn right about now.

C47 accident here. Cant really tell what the initial problem was other than the tail never came off the ground. That shoulda happened well before the mains left the runway.

We survived the night in the tent. 40 mph gusts and driving rain. They came on the PA system several times and said seek shelter but we had nowhere to go.

Glad y'all survived with no problems. Those fancy shower/restrooms out by the plane camping area should be a shelter you could hide in.

Have there been any runway incidents this year? I was there the year Jack Rousch "mislanded" his Beechcraft.

Made it home, sat in line for 30 minutes waiting to take off. Got in the air around 9:30. Made 2 stops and had to divert around a storm. Landed around 6:30. Tired, cranky and hungry. First stop whataburger!
