Matt,
If you're flying in and NOT taking the spouse, absolutely camp on the
field. The total experience is great.
If your spouse is going, try to find people you know renting a house and
get a room with them. That's what we do and the wives love it. Dinner
out every night, airport stuff all day.
Be sure and use the housing resources on the EAA site, we've had great
luck with them (but these guys are right, getting hotel room anywhere
close is not likely unless you know someone).

The more I think about this, the more I want to explore the idea of an RV
neighborhood in Camp Scholler.
One possibility, it seems to me, is me going over on Friday this year
(isntead of Sunday) and grab the permits and passes for those who want to
camp in the same area and who are driving in or flying in later. Then I'd
stake out all the spots and as folks show up, they can call me on the
cellphone and I can meet them at the gate or registration area and give them
the paperwork and the directions (and a ride if need be).
Usually we put together the RV7 BBQ on Wednesday (now known as the RV7
Family Reunion), but we could actually make it a week-long affair with a
single spot in the middle of this neighborhood as the RV builders social
center, culminated with the big get-together on Wednesday.
Usually this spot is on 12th between Lindbergh and Elm, and I wouldn't
expect it to be any different.
Worth considering.

That sounds like a great idea! We are planning on attending Osh again this year and it would be nice to meet some of the other builders. I would be in for a spot in an RV neighborhood.

OK, tell you what. Let me work on the BBQ setup a little bit and around March I'll put up a web site with the plans. We'll do a sign-up thing on the Web site
(http://home.comcast.net/~bcollinsrv7a/eaa/) (I think because of the cost involved, folks who want sites reserved are going to have Paypal (is that a verb) the fee ahead of time so nobody gets stuck with $100 bill for someone that doesn't show. We'll organize some volunteers and we'll get it done.

I=92ve had some good luck getting a hotel in Appleton and taking the shuttle
bus down to the convention. The bus ride is reasonable and goes directly
to the front gate =96 you don=92t need a car. You can either land at
Appleton=97there are shuttle busses to the hotels from the airport, or land at
OSH and take the shuttle back each night. They start running early in the
morning and the last one leaves the convention site about 7 pm. By that
time I=92m usually ready for bed anyway.

Dear listers,
Any one can hold or reserve a place for anybody in the camp area, however,
the hidden hooker is "you must PAY for each day" from the beginning of the
reservation, not the actual time you use. The exception to this rule is
anyone who is a member of the "Century club" may reserve a camp place
anytime without paying for it. These people always reserve all of the good
places at least a month before the fly in. I live in Green Bay and usually
reserve a camp place a week before the fly in and it usually costs me at
least an extra 200 dollars for the flyin.

Right, that's why I say folks wold have to pay in advance. The thing with
camping is that you pay for the whole shebang and then the days you don't
use, you get refunded. But getting the spot wouldn't be the challenge (by
the way, the folks who get there early don't have the "right stuff" to camp
with the REAL campers! Out inthe field (g)
No the hard part is just getting a whole "street" individually staked out.
And if folks weren't arriving until, say, Tuesday or Wednesday, we wouldn't
be able to stake out a spot.
