Thoughts of “NO, you can’t make me go home!” were on my mind this morning as I walked to my Decathlon from the AirVenture Bus Arrival Terminal. I’d just checked out of my Gruenhagen dorm room at the University of Wisconsin OSH, one day after returning there late-night and finding a padlock on my door for non-payment. Note to self, get your dates straight or eviction is imminent.
When it comes to “All good things must come to an end”, as much as I don’t want to believe it, even this one-of-a-kind, annual event must end. Today, for me, was that day. There are so many amazing things packed into one short week at AirVenture it’s a shame we have to say goodbye.
My Decathlon and I are back home tonight, after spending 8 ridiculously fun days at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It was crazy busy with gillions of things to see, thousands of people to talk to and an incredible variety of taildraggers to take in. I am tickled to have reconnected with so many lady taildragger pilots and met so many gals who love to fly taildraggers.
