It's true, every place does. Titletown Brewery is a good place for a local brewery, pretty good food, too. Otherwise there's a crapload of bars around the football stadium.

I'll be going for a day or 2, along w/ my dad (Skyking1976) probably. Maybe we'll see some of you guys there. We only live about a half hour away from Oshkosh.

Going to park an airplane and reserve a good camping spot on Wednesday. Then be back for the end of the show Friday through Sunday.There's nothing like camping under your wing, waking up and watching airplanes while you make breakfast.

If you are flying in, you can camp beside your plane. I'm not sure if parking at the field fills up- it seems pretty close some years. I know there are several satellite airports that allow camping, so maybe those are used when there is no more parking at OSH.

If you are driving in, Camp Scholler has endless room to camp. It never fills up! The only trick is getting a spot close to the show gate and the showers. It's a good time hanger-flying with others in the camp after the show each day.

Im going next year dragging the gf with me, displays looked disappointing this year. On a side note the 747 Air Atlanta brought in for the show in 2002 has already been scrapped in the desert.

Lomira, is about 40 minutes south of Oshkosh, the Amerinn or Amerisuites or whatever has always had hotel rooms the whole week.

Sorry, can't remember any more details, just always see the billboard and have occasionally stayed there.

Amerihost!

No that's not true, you can leave anytime the airshow part ends, which is usually around 6 P.M.

Vintage Camping

The last 4 years I have flown up and camped in the Vintage Aircraft Camping. That is just west of 18-36 and is alot of fun and closer to everything than the North 40. We usually fly up in about a 10-15 plane formation and do the usual Ripon-Fisk arrival. If you have an airplane over 35 years old it counts as vintage, so find the oldest plane you can get your hands on and get the better camping spot.

we're staying in Appleton this year although flying into GRB. Lotsa good beers at Titletown Brewery in downtown Green Bay but plenty of chain resturants near the airport although there's a place called Angelina's downtown with good Italian food, even for the Midwest.
Looking forward to the younger crowd in Appleton:)
