On the way to Oshkosh

We finaly got off towards the EAA Fly-In at Oshkosh at 9:30 Monday morning. It was cloudy, a thunderstorm had just passed and another was on the way when we slipped out thru the gap.

No problems up to Canton except the heads were running really warm, almost redline temperatures. Glenn keeps the power back to keep the heads under control but we still manage to do 95 mph.

We leave Canton for Poplar Grove, arriving at 2:00. We go have lunch and ice cream at Culver's, then head back to the airport to read the arrival notam. We see we can go in after the airshow and the field should be open for arrivals at 7:00 pm. We plan to leave Poplar Grove at 6:00 so we'll be over the Ripon arrival a little after 7:00.
