If I was multi-engine rated, I take a shot at it.

Ex-USAF and live only 2 hours from Oshkosh yet I've only twice been to Air-Adventure. Have also been to the EAA Museum a couple times.

I grew up two hours from Rockford. (For you whippersnappers, Rockford was the home of the EAA before it moved to Oshkosh.) In spite of Oshkosh being only a few hours longer drive, I never made it there, but I did attend Arlington a few times after we moved to Oregon. Even flew in myself one year.

Pretty hard to shrink that man down from giant size! He was such an American treasure.

Which direction I grew up in Mchenry (1955-1981) Went to tech school in Rockford.
Small world! My wife grew up in McHenry. Me, about 20 minutes a tad north of due east from there, very near a circular body of water.

Yes I have been all over this part of my world. From Lake Michigan/Chicago up to Sheboygan to Stevens Point and back down to Rockford. Even spent4 months down in Rantoul/Chanute AFB. Somehow I just couldn't ever see myself relocating out of this area.

I was at Chanute from 1989 until 3 months before they handed the keys to the local mayor.

I've flown my Skylane into Air Venture at Oshkosh 7 times, and drove there just as many times. Flying in via the Ripon Railroad tracks is the most fun. The ATC controllers there are awesome. Ask me sometime how I got into a kill position with a L-39 Albatros that was 200 feet below me and streaming smoke.
