In case you wondered…
It is 16 days away…. and I unfortunately can’t make it. Not this year and definitely not next year, but after that, anything is possible!
I’ve lost track of how many times I have visited Airventure since I got my private license. You can read all about it here (at least all the times I blogged about it):
Oshkosh, Nothing like it!!!!
There is absolutely nothing like it!
Life is full of choices
I bought a T-shirt one year at Airventure that read “Life is full of choices”. How true.
2014 was an incredible year. I flew a lot. I flew to the Bahamas. To Sun ‘n Fun. To Airventure. I flew to Virginia airports for $500 Vegeburger runs and stamps. I finally got my tail wheel rating. It was fantabulous!
2015, on the other hand was tame. As they say, life is full of choices!
Here are some fun posts from 2015:
January: Words on Wednesdays: From AAA to FLY

Each year, I look forward to my trip to Oshkosh, not the least because I look forward to being inspired. See Oshkosh: An Inspiration.
Since 2002, when I first made it to Airventure, I looked forward to my trips to Oshkosh as an inspiration, to rejuvenate my spirits, to take a day or two or a week off, so I could handle the rest of the year.
The last couple of years my trips to Oshkosh were exhilarating, not the least because I flew in, but sadly Rutan’s absence was deeply felt.
On Friday, February 19th, 2015, EAA announced the return of Burt Rutan to Airventure 2015 for the 40th anniversary of the VariEze. Lookout for a flyin of Rutan designs!
2015 promises to be a year to look forward to…See you at Airventure 2015!
