As many of you know, this week would be the EAA AirVenture event in Oshkosh, WI. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this event has been cancelled. However, this event will still be happening virtually thanks to an Oshkosh local, @JarretFlies. Instead of flying commercially up to Wisconsin, I decided to dust off my 1972 C172N and take part in a legendary journey to Oshkosh from my home airport of Boca Raton, FL. My first leg would take me across the entirety of a Florida’s eastern coast up to a Fernandina Beach, a small seaside town on the border with Georgia.
