Who's hoping to have a delicious chili dog from the church tent near the bus tower next summer?

SOS brothers area? :drinkers:

Camping? :smt015

There are even airplanes if that is something you like. :smt041

Written out it is a very good list. There is a concert too and a stage "in the woods" with a few small shows and jams.

Ad some cars and motorcycles and it would be almost everything I love.

I have only went once. It's like going to any flying thing. Suddenly you have a bunch of guys at an airport that speak airplane, only there are thousands of them and many bring their planes.

A highlight was hanging out with this guy I met that I kind of knew from an Internet forum. He goes often. He had a really cool leather jacket. Authentic WWI style, down to a particular archaic style of stitching. I said, "Hey can I look closer and hold it? Don't worry I won't try to put it on."

His buddy just about did a spit take, then said, "You wouldn't fit in that. No way." Which was partially why I said I was not going to try to.

Good times. Next time I get a chance to go I plan to bring my over priced RCAF looking red canoe shaving kit.

Got to love it when the wife sends a text message. "Got to book vacation for this year. What date is Oshkosh?"
She also wants to stay the whole week this time :)

I just started to discuss getting time off at work. You would think they would pay much better for someone they regard as such a valuable team member. :?

Never say never but it's a pretty daunting drive so I'm probably going to stay closer to home this year. I'll miss you two. Post some pictures and anecdotes for me.

For me it's a last minute thing. I hate camping, but don't mind it under the plane for some odd reason.

Was hoping to fly down again this year but in my newly built bird this time but looks like she won't be ready on time. Still waiting for my CofA and fly off my hours, then I'd have to install a transponder... :( Hoping to still make it but I'm getting broke after a bunch of other junk I bought this summer! Next year for sure though... :D

I want to go so bad, but I can't afford to rent a plane for that whole flight. Anyone want to give me a ride? :P

Really ???
I have gone 22 yrs in a row and don't find that at all.
Apart from Admission and camping or parking , what is EAA bugging you to spend money on? They don't go around approaching people at the show and asking for money that I have ever seen.
All the exhibits are free, Museum is free , Forums are free .
What more do you want ?

It was one of the best values in an airshow type of event I have been to. The only thing way better is donation only museums, if you are too cheap to donate.

More importantly though, I would like to know how they planed to go to airventure 2015 in 2016?

In conclusion, this thread lacks pictures from the event.
