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!
