Thanks everyone, I think we have a plan A B and C now. Your help was most valuable! Big thanks to those that offered a personal contact, I will drop you a PM if we go that route. Thanks again!

Wow, I wish every state had something as detailed as this!!! That document is really really awesome!

Boyceville WI has a campground right next to the airport. I can probably snag you a hangar spot overnight if you would like. There’s places to get food within walking distance and you’re about an hour from Oshkosh at RV speeds if you want to get a jump on the next day. We’re driving to Oshkosh on Monday, so if you’re coming through before that you’re even welcome to stay with my wife and I, provided dogs and cats don’t bother you.

Reach out via PM if interested.

I confess to mixed emotions about the expected weather during the Airventure week. I would certainly hate for it to intrude on you folks going to Oshkosh, but here in central Minnesota we really need the rain, and a gullywasher or two would not be unwelcome.

(I’m certain that I’d feel differently if was making that trip…)

Be warned that we've had IFR conditions on and off over the past few weeks due to Canadian forest fire smoke wafting into MN.

Absolutely. Hard IFR yesterday...visibility yesterday at KBRD was 3/4 mile and being outside smelled like being inside a burning house.

It's better today, but northerly winds over the next few days aren't going to help.

It's even making its way down to IL. Surface vis was 9 yesterday, but at 2500 it couldn't have been better than 4 or 5.
