Default RV-10 Daytrip to Wisconsin Dells

I'm trying something new (for us at least!) and I put together a "Flight Log" video of our trip. We're still figuring out what works well in these videos, format, things that should be longer/shorter... and we'd love some feedback about what you all think!

Trip writeup (From our blog post)

So? Wisconsin Dells was the destination on our travel map. And at only a quick 45 minute flight, that?s a great little getaway! And they have a taxi service as well.

Wisconsin Dells is probably known as the waterpark capital of the world. But guess why we were going?

MagiQuest.

Aw yeah.

The full trip writeup is at http://www.goodplaneliving.com/fligh...isconsindells/

Nice write up! I enjoyed following your build too--you guys and a few other RV-10 couples with young children inspired our switch from RV-8 to RV-10.

See you at Oshkosh?

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.

Just working on the final OSH plans now! I'll be there all week, probably getting there Friday or Saturday the weekend before the show.

Nope! We only have one more spare seat! I told the wife if she wants more kids it's going to get really expensive because we're going to have to go bigger, like a G36 Bonanza, or maybe that new TBM930... that's a pretty sweet plane!

Now if Van's comes out with a 170knot 6 place amphib airplane, all bets are off!

Sweet, so I can renew my pool membership?! I can check that off the list of causes. Only 3-4 possibilities left.

Default Nice.

Thanks for posting this trip write-up, Ed and Colleen. See you both in OSH soon. I really am dying to see the inside of your 10. Love the dash-mounted AOA indicator!

Default Enjoyed the video and the write-up

Ed,

Nice video and write-up. RVs can do 160nm one-way trip in an afternoon! I was timing the take-off in the video and it is off the ground in around 10 sec! See you at Oshkosh in couple of weeks!
