Hello All - New EAA member, new Oshkosh365 member, 1st post
I bought a M5 last year on floats and am planning to fly down to Oshkosh this year. I've never been there before but am pretty excited about it. I'm planning on Camping at the Sea Plane base and have a few questions.
- can I buy camping tickets and a spot for the plane or is it first come, first served?
- if first come, does the base fill up ever to the point that I may not get in when I arrive? Was thinking of going down on the Tuesday and am not sure if I should go earlier to ensure a spot.
- I've read the arrival procedure provided by the Seaplane Pilots Association, just curious how busy it is flying in there say mid morning?
- Was thinking of leaving Saturday but was told the "big event" at the base is the watermelon social. If worth staying - is it really busy to fly out first thing Sunday a.m.?
Sorry for all the questions.
