The lot did change - in prior years it was the “Orange” lot which was public parking. Things shifted around a bit this year and it is now part of the “G” Lot. Lettered lots are permit only and color lots are public parking.

I'm watching as well & hoping for an opening coming up from Clearwater. I plan on a fuel stop a bit further west from your location. KBGF, Winchester
We go there often for pancakes! Great place to stop!

Hey Brian,
You guys could set up with me but I am getting there Sat and leaving early Tuesday morning. I am just there for the two main events. (party's)
Still don't know what you would do with the car.

Default Do what you are comfortable doing

Brian, I'm by no means an expert but no one has really answered your original question or given you any options so I'm going to attempt it. I'm in a similar situation as you but a bit more stubborn. I'm flying even if I leave Saturday and get there Monday. I look at it as more of an adventure so I may be camping at other airports along my route and my route may take me further West as I make my way up from Northwest Atlanta. If you decide to drive, you are more than welcome to camp next to my plane. I just need to know in advance so I an part at HBC instead of HBP. Just let me know sometime tomorrow. I'll text you my number (you've sent me your number before) and you can just let me know if you ended up driving and want me to park my plane at HBC.

Most importantly, do what you are comfortable doing... I hate to say it but sometimes we as "friends" push other pilot friends to do things that they are not comfortable doing without even realize we are doing it.

Hope to see you at Oshkosh.

Amir

You're welcome to camp at my plane. However, I do not plan to arrive until Sunday and staying through thursday. Wx looks a bit ugly, but I am sure I will find a way there some time on Sunday even if later in the day.

Default camping Sunday

This is my second time to KOSH and the first time in HBC. Going on Sunday. Is it pretty certain I will be able to camp in HBC? The event is getting so big.

There seems to always be room in HBC. The annex island helps a bunch!

If you end up in Shuler & need a cart to retrieve your gear, I have one of those fold up wagons, I think it’s rated at 60#
I’ll be pulling in to Shuler about dinner time Saturday.
A more important question, is the food venues open Sat & Sun?

Some of them were open today, but very limited menus and nothing was precooked. It just took a little longer to get your food. We ate the place across from the homebuilt hq for lunch.
