    Anyone heading to Oshkosh this year? I'm packing up the ol' 172 to max gross (wink) and heading out early Saturday morning. I hope to make the trip from KPNS to KATW in one day (two pilots on board).

    I go to Sun-n-Fun every year, but this will be my first trip to the "mother of all fly-ins".

    Hoping for good weather -- and glad I have XM Weather on board...

    I am on the road now. I plan to drive up from Southern WI on Sat. I have not been in 6 yrs or so. I sold my plane in 1993 & always get the bug after Oshkosh. I'll have to look through my 'free' issue of Trade-a-plane.

    I just filed and will be gear up in about an hour, need to get out before this storm hits. One of the gentleman I partner with on the Mooney also owns a T-6 that Ive been building time in over the last few years.

    We flew up to Dubuque last week for NATA and FAST, but I had to come back for the week. He needs to be back in Burqe tomorrow so hes coming back in the Mooney and guess who gets to fly the Texan in the warbird portion tomorrow.
