Default Osh Camping Questions

So I am faced with the fact that due to the weather I may have to call an audible and drive to Osh. I have never done that and don't want to but.....

I have always either had offsite housing or camped by the plane.

Can you camp in HBC with no plane?

If so, what the heck do you do with your 4 wheeled vehicle?

If I must camp in Scholler, since I shipped a large support box to GES, how the heck am I going to pick it up without the help of the welcome wagon (54lbs)?

How does it work in Camp Scholler? Just find an open spot and claim it or ?

I feel like such a newbie!

Yeah I know I fat fingered the word camping on the title. I fixed it but it does not propagate....

Have a little faith. The weather will work out, (I hope).
If it doesnít and you know someone flying in maybe they will let you pitch a tent at their airplane.
Parking can be had just across from the new HBC shelter, donít know the designation.

This message will self destruct in 10seconds.

It looks to be clearing up for a Sunday arrival.
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

In looking at the map, it is not anywhere near to scale. I believe they may have the permit only lot shown farther to the north than it is. The lot was fairly small so maybe it is the one shown just to the north of the permit lot.

Brian, don't give up. You don't "have to" get there on Sat... I've been so heads down at work all week, I haven't had a chance to look at weather, and I don't even care. Came home tonight and TC said, weather.... ehh, for Sat. Still don't care, we're going to OSH! We'll get there when we get there and we ARE leaving Sat morning before the sun comes up. And we ARE camping with the airplane in HBC or bust.
