Work got shut down unexpectedly so I just booked a ticket to O'Hare tomorrow. Anyone know the best way to get from KORD to KOSH? Anyone driving from that way?

I'll be driving up from Ohare tomorrow also. 294-94- east on 43 to get to the N45 then north on I 41 to Oshkosh. Taking the 43 will get you around Milwaukee. I've done this route a number of times. Not a bad drive once clear of Chicago. See ya Friday before the STOL flights?

Hey Eddie, I land at 17:51. I guess I'll do the car rental thing as it looks like there is no great transit way of getting there.

I rented a car for a ludicrous price considering I will barely be driving it. If you hear of anyone needing a ride from KORD tomorrow evening, let me know. I'll arrive tomorrow night. I am going to wear a very conspicuous teal hat and a small black back pack. Hopefully I'll see some of you. If you see the teal hat and the black backpack combo, say hi.

Crap Josh, we only missed one another by 2 hours. I thought you could catch a ride with us in the motorhome but you would have no way back to Chicago. I would hang back but my family that lives near Oshkosh will be waiting for us to arrive for dinner. Anyhow, I look forward to meeting you and others Friday evening.

Oh bummer! I did find a ride back. But don't change your plans for me. I don't want to keep your family waiting.
