Getting Ready for Oshkosh

Tuesday we got ourselves and the airplane prepped to go to the EAA Fly-In at Oshkosh, WI. We made two trips out to the airport with most of our stuff. First to go was the cooler and camping equipment. The we made sure the cowling was on correctly, filled up the oil jug, packed the tools and the tie-downs. It looked like it was going to rain, so we pulled the airplane just out of the hangar and went to help Glenn. We were rewards with a nice, easy, short summer shower that completely washed the airplane. When it quit raining, we dried the airplane off with some old towels and put her away.
We helped Glenn by first polishing the propellor, then pulling the snap-caps off the rockers on the Zenith's engine, pulling out the old, gross and smelly grease and washing the covers in the parts washer.
Later that evening we took out our clothes in trash bags and put them in the plane. Now all we need is our food and camera equipment and we're ready to go!
