I had a student pilot in my airplane with me (which helped as an extra set of eyes and to have the NOTAM handy), and two other airplanes in my flight of three.  We got assigned different runways though so I was quickly on my own.  The pilots in the other airplanes would not be helpful anyway since once you are in the procedure radio use is forbidden.  

If you can fly into a busy class D airport, you can do the Oshkosh VFR arrival procedure.  You literally just follow roads and/or railroad tracks and listen for instructions at certain points.  Bring another pilot with you if you are really worried, but I doubt you will have any issues.  Thousands of very marginal pilots have done its successfully, so you are ahead of the game. :D 

Just study the procedure in the NOTAM thoroughly, and have it printed and handy in the cockpit.
