United States Travel / Wisconsin

Wisconsin: Oshkosh, EAA

The home base of where I work is conveniently located behind the EAA grounds, in Oshkosh WI. EAA? You may ask,… if you have lived under a rock. Well let me tell you just a brief synopsis of EAA– click the link for more detailed information otherwise here’s the short version, “it is a convention and meeting of fellow aviator enthusiasts. The fly, fix and build their own aircraft’s and then have the balls to fly them at the Wittman Regional Airport/Field.”

People from all over the world come, while locals pull up their foldable chairs just to catch a glimpse of the airfield. Courageous and quite honestly ridiculous stunts and flights can be witnessed throughout the week period this is going on. The energy within the city has an awe inspiring buzz and within that week it seems as though many possibilities are opening up through the dreams and creations of these pilots.

One thought on “Wisconsin: Oshkosh, EAA

  1. Nice pictures!

    Usually I don’t travel a lot and prefer reading from those who do. Some time ago I started thinking about improving travel and photo blogs to make them more informative and more attractive. How do I read blogs? At first I open Google Maps and look for the place described in article. Maps are really helpful! After that I try to figure out where those pictures were taken? So waypoints will be helpful. And finally, what if I want to do a similar journey? It would be great to see a trail or a route. Not only to see, but to download it to a mobile device like a smartphone and follow the path.

    I with my friends created http://www.track-kit.net – a place where GPS tracks with waypoints, images, street video, Panoramio pictures can be stored, edited and viewed. The most important is tracks can be embedded into WordPress blogs as an interactive map with multiple map sources including topo maps, OSM and even Bing. Your readers can enjoy track statistics, speed and elevation, look at images and see where they have been taken. Here is a description of all major features:

    You can upload tracks from smartphones, PC or Mac. You can even create a track right at the web site. Here is a video to explain it better:


    In other words we tried to put all the great features in one place to offer your readers quality content and make your posts even better!
    Even if you use Google Maps at the blog it is great! It helps making your readers more interested in your blog and attract more followers.
    Thanks a lot for great posts!
