You're not the only one who enjoyed the beer party too much! The biggest issue with being the founder is everyone wants me to sample their flagship beers, and I can't say no!

Jim - not holding my breath. My beer guard is on high alert when you're in the vicinity.

Doug - Garmin Pilot indicated wheels down was at 4:15pm on Saturday. Silly me thought it would be a breeze flying into Oshkosh since weather blocked a lot of traffic to the east. I didn't count on everyone waiting out the low ceilings in Southern WI that cleared out in the afternoon.

I cheat a little in my trip reports. All my pics get automatically uploaded to my site, I then just write a quick blurb about them, and have a script to "VAFify" them.

Frank - great to see you again. We should make sure George books Derek to work the week of Oshkosh next year. Salt in the wound! You'll love the Black Otter - I turned some of my local Maryland RV guys onto it and they loved it.

CJ - Great to spend all week parked next to you! Maybe next year you can figure out how to configure your camera to take pics larger than 640x480?

Default Yes

Yes the water drips coming from my gtx 327 the night before didn't seem to be a problem on the next power up. I will be prepared for next year though. Just bought a canopy cover and folding chair.
