Default RV-10 Check-In For Osh 2012

Dreamers, builders and flyers...Let's get together at Oshkosh 2012.
Man, I am excited! Even the wife and kids(9 & 12) are too. It will be our first time camping out after 23 yrs of marriage/first time to Osh/first time in WI/second long xc(have not had the first xc yet, ha).

We are planning on flying up Sun(vfr only). Camping at least two nights with our plane, depending on if the family funometer stays ROP. Hope to see some of you there. Now, to search for "camping how-to" articles. Any advice welcome too. I know to bring rain gear and OFF bug spray.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Default Definitely!

I'll be there, but won't be able to "arrive in style" this year. I'll have to take the tube.. Be sure to read up on the NOTAM several times prior to launch..

Looking forward to a great Osh, with special recognition for Vans, it should be a great year!

You not riding with me Mike? I'm pretty sure to be solo re: family.

I'll be there, but my RV-10 won't be. I don't think I'll be out of Phase I in time to fly to OSH this year. I've got parts being painted in June, then by the time I re-assemble and get the pink slip, it's just going to be too late for this year.

I will be there, but not with the RV. Still building! Flying the trusty, but slow, Piper. I am planning on a Thursday arrival.

Wayne.. bring lots of mosquito spray!
