Where have you been? What have you seen?
Oshkosh has become a bit of a regular pilgrimage, and this year seemed like a good time to get there under our own steam.
So sometime on Sunday or Monday three aircraft (Baron, TB20 and C182) will leave Southern England for KOSH via Iceland, Greenland and Canada. Between the three aircraft and six pilots there's been a fair bit of work done getting ready for the trip (insurance, visas, medicals, licenses etc. etc.), and even today, a couple of days before departure there are still a few lose ends to get sorted.
We'll update this thread as we go with pics, comments, maps and if we can get it working properly a SPOT tracker page.
For now, the only picture is from last night's work on the remaining ToDo list.
If I can remember how to make this work, this should be the URL for the SPOT tracker, it may well show my drive to work today though:-)
Let me be the first to wish you a safe journey!
Bonne Voyage and see you when you're back.
Use email please rather than PMs

The ferry tanks got fitted eventually, then!
It goes without saying hat envy takes a second place to wishing you a safe and enjoyable trip, in both directions. Marvellous.
You should try and find some kind of GA magazine willing to publish details of the adventure - and when you do, don't forget to describe the prep.
Bon voyage Ian & crew; I'm most jealous!
I will be going by SLF...so see you there. Do you have an anticipated arrival day/time, or are you going with the vagaries of the Atlantic weather? More importantly, is Adrian offering drinks upon arrival?
