Well, after making last year my very first trip to an Airventure in Oshkosh, I won't be attending the 2012 AirVenture. The 60th anniversary of the event will just have to continue on without me. Between a family vacation, work, and a surprise unplanned trip, I have no time left over to make the trip to the aviation equivalent of a sci-fi geeks Comic-Con trip. Instead, I'll be at the MLS All-Star Game, with the MLS All-Star team vs. Chelsea, and I will get to watch my kids take the field as player escorts among other events planned for me. I luckily won a sweepstakes held by the MLS WORKS Active Bodies Active Minds campaign. They will fly me and my family to Philly for the game (see so there is still some aviation involved for me next week!)
To all my aviation followers headed to AirVenture, I'd love to hear your experiences and share your photos. I may even post up some of your comments and photo's if you want! Just comment on this blog post below, email me if you have that or shoot me a message on Twitter or Facebook! I can still spread the AirVenture experience third-hand I guess!
