Oshkosh Convention And Visitors Bureau Begins EAA Housing
It's that time, folks. Time to start making "specific" plans for
your trip to Oshkosh this summer. Not just, "Yeah, I'm gonna go."
But, "I better make sure we have a nice place to stay or my wife
will have my hide!" No dilapidated RV for her this year.
We can say that because the city's Convention and Visitor's
Bureau has put the call out for homeowners who live within 10 miles
of convention grounds to help with housing some of the 800,000
visitors expected July 23 to 29 - oh, and make a few extras bucks
while they're at it.
Homeowners can register through April 30 and for the first time,
limited private housing information will be available on the
Visitor's Bureau Web site for AirVenture guests to peruse at www.oshkoshcvb.org.
According to the AirVenture Web site, there are hundreds of
private homes available to rent during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
They're an ideal solution for families, groups, and EAA chapters
and are all within 10 miles of the EAA Convention site.
You can call the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors Bureau's
housing hotline at 920-235-3007 to reserve an entire house, a room
in someone's home, or a camper/RV on their property.
I can't finish this story without including a new trend in
travel and vacation noted on the Oshkosh Convention and Visitors
Bureau Web site: mancations, the guy's version of the girlfriends
weekend. No, I'm not kidding. Check the Web site out for
According to urbandictionary.com, mancation is described as when
normal (as opposed to "abnormal?") males engage in "guy" activities
that involve sports, camping, gambling and most of all drinking
amongst their all and only male friends.
So fear not, manly men. Oshkosh offers a full menu of
testosterone-filled activities for your next mancation, including,
dare I say, AirVenture? Want to see for yourself what the talk is
all about? A Google search for "mancation" yields over 69,000
Again, I'm not kidding.
