    Kent - was your grandfather one of the Wien brothers that started Wein Airlines? I used to fly Wein a lot and was sad to see it go away.

    Hi Sandpiper,

    Yes, my grandpa was Noel Wien. I was pretty sad too! I ended up flying for Era before moving south. Living in NY now.

    Excellent writeup KW... inspiring for those of us who want to travel like that.  Thank you for taking the time to write it up and post here.

    Amazingly it was my daughter’s idea to do the trip. Twist my arm!

    Can’t believe it went off without a hitch. 

    And then there was this bonus:

  3. Oh wow. 

    You just can’t imagine how easy it was on Saturday. There was radio silence for 5 minutes at a time with no arrivals at noon. Crowds were light and on Sunday, I could see the expo buildings and visit anyone without 6-deep crowds of people. 

    I think i lucked out. A perfect two-day visit during our NY to Seattle adventure.

  4. Anyone make it to Oshkosh this year?

    I hadn’t been since 2002 and wow, it’s changed! For the better. The night airshow is spectacular. 

    Flying in was surprisingly easy with plenty of spots available. Leaving Monday morning. New York to Seattle via Oshkosh.

  5. Hi AG!

    Hope to fly with you in the area. I’m in Poughkeepsie and have a CTsw. 

    The only bike that might fit would be a Brompton, but I still don’t think even that will fit. I could be wrong though.

    Look at Fisher’s Island just south of Groton. What a perfect place to take the CT and have a beach picnic. 

    Congrats!
