    I'm not sure. I know Doug has an appeal in April, but I haven't heard anything about it yet.

    I won't be at March this year as I have a bunch of things going on at work and I will be in Palm Springs the following weekend for the T-34 gathering. With the gathering and Chino that's 2 weekends in a row away from the family. I'm not pushing my luck for 3.

    Only a couple hundred for airfare, and $70 a night for a average motel/hotel.

    You can do it on the cheap with no problem at all.

    That makes sense. It's a lot of weekends in a row to be away from home.

    Probably Syscom except Im saving up for Airventure again this year. As of right now the plan is to take off the whole week and my family wants to go every day. Its been a while since I done the full 7 days and well with the B-17 and DC-3/C-47 aniversory going on I want to see it all at a slower pass this year. The grounds are changing out there. EAA is spending a 15 million dollar upgrade project for the grounds and airshow and things are moving all over the place. For a 7 day pass for my three family members alone will be $230 plus $56 dollars for parking for the week and then that does not include gas for the half hour drive back and forth every day. That does not include drinks, food and such of which for the most part I carry. But then there is the fly market for books.

    Then if things go good I want to go to Thunder in Michigan this year. Will have to see how things go. :)

    Eric, you coming this year????

    If by some miracle I come into a bunch of money, I'll be there. I really wish I could as the DC-3/C-47 has always been a favorite of mine. Plus the whole Osh experience is really something.

    Bring lots of sun screen and water. The weather is usually hot at Chino that weekend. There is usually some morning haze as well. Three years ago, it was 116F (47c) on the tarmac. Aside from the airport and museums there, there isn't a while lot else to do in the Chino area. The Palm Springs Air Museum is east of there about 1-1.5 hours and is well worth a visit. March Field museum is nearby in Riverside as well. There are plenty of things to keep you busy in Southern California.

    Do not forget to have the March AFB museum on your schedule. You can easily spend a whole afternoon wandering around looking that their collection. Its about 30 minutes from Chino.
