I guess I'm borderline anti-social, but I'd rather stop at a small airport that's not so popular. I think the idea is a great one....we used to go to Mark Jones' place in Stevens Point, and we had a blast hanging out and swapping stories, cooking out, and have a beer or two the night before, leaving early the next morning. I do like the idea of furthering this tradition, and second the motion of finding a suitable place next year to do this...maybe even this year. I regret that it'll cost us money to stay in a hotel, but it'll be worth it to get in early, beating the crosswinds and more importantly, the traffic. It might even be possible to camp at the airport, if we can get that lucky. It also helps us get a great parking space out in front of Homebuilders Headquarters, and eliminates a lot of potential weather problems when you're only a half hour away. One thing I'd like to add to Larry's excellent OSH writeup is to feel free to go back to Ripon if things get too bunched up in front of you. It wouldn't be an OSH arrival if several folks didn't descend or climb up in front of you, gutting your gap in half. It makes maintaining 90 knots and 1800' a lot harder than it sounds. One year I went back to Ripon twice before I finally got lucky and made it all the way in. The best way for KRs to do this is to all go in together, with our speed, altitude, and spacing all set up as we get to Ripon, forcing everybody else to work around us. If we go in early though, traffic shouldn't be a big deal.
