Can anyone tell me what kind of ground transportation I can access to get from my parked plane at OSH to camp Scholler with all my stuff?

If you go here -
you'll find a map with pink dots on it showing the bus route from the terminal building, through the North 40, round to the grounds. Where the pink dots stop and the red line starts, you get off the bus & on to a tram. No set times, they just run back & forth all day.

Looking at that raises more questions. Where is the GA parking for someone not camping with their plane?
And the routes to get to Camp Scholler look complicated (a bus and several trams?) and none go all the way to the campground. Am I missing something? How does someone flyin and camp in Camp Scholler carrying a lot of stuff?

Kind of simple....Fly into EAA / Oshkosh / Airventure....and camp in north 40 by ones airplane.

You might be able to ask for a Welcome Wagon. I know they patrol custom and vintage along 18/36, but not too sure about N40. If not, then yeah, it's gonna take a bus and 2 trams (Red and Yellow) to get over to Scholler and have to hoof it once you get to the entrance of the campground.

I'm usually driving a van with warbird decals on the side--if I see someone during the week that is carrying a lot of stuff--I usually give them a ride--or if they are real old--I'll stop and give them a ride---NOW--the 100% sure fire way to get a ride is to have a smoking hot girl friend with you !!!!!

Kevin does have a point, though, a lot of times some volunteer with a vehicle will stop and help if you're obviously struggling.

GA parking is usually on the far north side of the north 40 area, relatively close to the hangars/FBO area. You'll have to take the perimeter bus around to the N40 enterance with your stuff, unless someone else offers you a ride as mentioned.
