      Nan33 If you think rallys are big and crazy, wait until you park an RV at AirVenture!  Prior to last summer, we had been to Oshkosh 4 times - all by air - 3 in our shared Cessna.  So with no airplane in the hangar anymore, and a 40' RV as our home, we...  more

      Charles & Sharon I started going to Oshkosh the first year (1970) in my T-Craft.  I was so naive about the process that I just joined the N/S traffic pattern and just landed no radio in the fly by session.  No one seemed to be angry at the time and they put my b...  more

      Jon & Sue W Our membership permits park-to-park with no break, and normally three week stays, except during those high-usage times, which vary by location and season. In Florida it’s during the winter, in the northeast it’s different. Leaf season in the fall is high ...  more

      Jon & Sue W We’re in our second year and have traveled the entire east coast in the last year, staying almost exclusively at TT parks. Some are more resort-like, some are more “campground” with few amenities, but all were clean and safe. We also opted for the Trails ...  more
