Oshkosh – a pilgrimage

by Ken on July 3, 2009

Kim and I flew to Oshkosh. Our airplane was loaded to the gill with the rear seat mostly hidden by camping and other baggage which we likely could have gotten along without nicely. What do they say? “Take half the luggage and take twice the money”.

Ha – I found a listing of our expenses:Was probably more than that.

Ahem – notice the “Skeeters”. Never did quite grow up 🙂 Wow, $19.96 for skeeters??

Discovery Wings got wind that we were going so asked us to if they could mount some cameras in the airplane to shoot a short piece.

Hey, who are we to argue? We are The Canaries Freedom.
