Fon Du Lac airport just 15 or a little more miles straight south of Oshkosh 
would be a good place to gather for an Oshkosh arrival. It is also just south 
east of Ripon. Some people fly into this airport and camp there during the air 
venture convention and commute back and forth by bus or auto daily. There are 
motels and restaurants in easy walking distance. If you want to camp there it’s 
no problem at that airport, they welcome that.
When ready to fly to Oshkosh either go northeast to Ripon or make arrangements 
with the controllers at Oshkosh and fly straight up highway 41, 15 miles land 
on the main north south runway, Easy.
