Stopped by there in the car over the 4th weekend, and I agree, great facilities and people.

Thinking about trips for the summer.

For those that camped at 49B were there showers available at the airport? Or do you get yourself to a campground and use their facilities?

Any helpful info? The vans rides sound easy.

Thanks
Mark

There is no shower at 49B that I know of. Jerry the airport manager was very accommodating and there is a bathroom and pilot lounge to use. We showered the the morning before we arrived and were only there one more day. You could probably not shower for the whole week and fit right in.

FYI if I didn't mention it before...

Jerry has a van and will usually give rides to get you to the Buffalo Chip where you can pick up and ride "Da Bus" anywhere. The airport isn't officially on "Da Bus" route but we didn't have any problem talking them into a quick trip to drop us off at the airport when we'd had enough.

If you have any interest in Sturgis at all, I'd highly recommend it. I'm not a "Harley Dude" by any means but we fit right in and had a blast. I think airplane building and bike building is pretty similar and I was amazed by all the talent.

Maybe we'll see you there. I'm still debating on whether to do Sturgis or Oshkosh again.
