We visit the Harley Davidson Museum at Milwaukee on our way to Oshkosh. The accommodation is at the University of Wisconsin. After we have settled in we take a bus to orientate ourselves around Oshkosh and visit a Walmart store to get our goodies for the week. We then do an orientation of the university and enjoy our first dinner at the Black Hawke Common. Next morning is the start of an amazing week at the EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh. We have bus passes which makes life a lot easier getting out there each day. The pass is also able to be used on the local buses. There are many workshops and forums to plan for from the programme. The daily show and the two night airshows are real hightlights.
