Why not actual OSH?

Has anyone considered just contacting Poberezny or someone at EAA HQ about using their facility in early June or Sept (when weather cooler..) rather than find another one? It sits there at the airport all year long, there are hotels, workshop buildings, etc etc. Wally wasn't an airplane guy, but the designer of the original clipper was, and he'd have been an EAA life member.. I'd bet a couple dozen of us are EAA members...

It would be minor hosting challenge to let some RV's onto site, and arrange for local instructors to be there. OSH is in upper midwest, and farther from most people than Nashville, but you could do EAA Museaum and other things. OSH gets busy in late June as EAA volunteers descend on field to arrange for stores, food, traffic and parking, etc, and set up fly-market and other facilities...

There is a KOA campground in woodsy setting 22 miles south of OSH airport in town of Fond Du Lac. We stayed there with many other EAA'ers and several Airstreamers to assure 30A hookups and A/C in '04.. The primary camp site at airport is Camp Scholler, and it is open field 1 mile by 1 1/2 miles, divided into "streets" and sections for generators, dogs, etc, but NO hookups for anyone there. The little campground along eastern flight line has some limited hookups, but not enough for A/C. Volunteers park in closer, but don't have full hookups either.. Happily, EAA arranges for large buildings scattered through camp with showers and bathrooms, to avoid stress on holding tanks...

In Theory, there's no difference between Theory and Practice, but in Practice, there is usually a difference...
