I'm showing up tomorrow with 4 boys and my mom.

Sounds like a lot of chaos going on at the EAA grounds. Almost feel like cancelling and trying to shoot for a different day.
If you are coming from the south thru Waupun, stop and have breakfast with us. Were you planning on camping or just going for the day?

The RV-5 is an example of what happens when you design for a specific engine. In this case it was the Carr Twin.

I'm getting ready to hop on my motorcycle, gas her up and make the trip to Oshkosh. I do this every year where I eat lunch by Steve Wittmans airplanes. It's become a sort of silent tradition. Weird, I know. Almost always next to the neglected little V-Witt. It's about a 1-1/2 hour drive for me. Because of a crazy scheduling conflict all I'm going to do today is drive out to Osh for lunch with Wittmans ghost at Pioneer airport and jump on the bike and head back home.

If anyone wants to join me I'm easy to spot. I'm wearing my work clothes which are old jeans and a dark blue wore out t shirt. Faded red had and sunglasses. Blue tennis shoes. I look like a plumber.

I should arrive about 11:30 12:00 ish. If we haven't met I'd love to meet you. If we have met swing over to Steve's little V Witt and let's chat for an hour.

IMG_7677.JPG SD-1 cockpit. I don't quite fit but just might in the XL version. John Vining was patient enough to answer about a half hour's worth of questions. IMG_7684.JPG IMG_7685.JPG Nick's ST is every bit as immaculate and beautiful as you can imagine. IMG_7686.JPG I guess I'm out of excuses--time to get back to work on the plane.

I'll be presenting on youth engagement in EAA Chapters with 4 of my youth group members in the Blue Barn tomorrow, July 24th, at 10 am, and staying at the show Wednesday, leaving at night then back on Friday and Saturday! I have a Chapter leaders breakfast from 8-10 am on Saturday morning (apparently I won an award, but I don't know why) but if I get going early will try to come find you guys. If you are bored come say hi in the Blue Barn :) If you hear a drunk Brit hanging out with the South Africans at 2 am in the morning in Camp Scholler that will most likely be me :)
