I’ve never been to Oshkosh before but am planning to be there for Thurs and Fri of this coming week, among other reasons to see the Cirrus Owners meeting. Logistics questions for veterans please:
Since I don’t have a plane, my plan is to fly commercial to O’Hare, rent a car, drive northward, and see what is the closest motel vacancy to the Oshkosh area, realizing that it could be very far away. Anyone have experience with the motel ecology of EAA, recommendations of places to try? (Realize that camping under the plane, rather than relying on a motel, is the Oshkosh Way.)
Then planning to drive to Oshkosh for each day’s events. Is there parking for cars there, as well as parking for airplanes? Is this a feasible scheme?
And, of course, if anyone is planning to fly to Oshkosh from the SF Bay area (my new home) on Tues or Wed, and needs an extra passenger for ballast…
Thanks, hope to see many of you there. jf
