EAA 2014

We went to EAA this year largely drawn by the fact that the Thunderbirds were going to be there.  While we’ve attended EAA a number of times over the years we’d always done it by parking somewhere that is usually a fair distance away and walking around all day.  On a typical day in the summer this makes for a very long and hot day.  This year we went with our good friend Dave.  Dave does EAA right in that he takes his 20-some odd foot camper there and sets it up for most of the week.  This provides a basecamp from which to work.  We parked in the campground parking lot and took shuttle buses to and from the main area of the event.  Dave’s camp gave us a very nice place to take a break at mid-day.  This is the way to go at EAA!
