Jeff Dunham At Airventure 2008 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin (Day 7 continued)
Well, today was just a darn good tootin’ day, eh? I betcha folks think I’m up from Wis-con-sin. Oh wait, no, but I’m here now at Oshkosh in the CHEESY state of Wisconsin! I got into the EAA campground here in Oshkosh at around 8pm after getting my oil changed and alignment tuned at NTB near Chicago. If anyone doesn’t know what “Oshkosh” (Officially called Airventure) is… it’s the largest general aviation event in the world. I quickly set up my tent and then headed over to see the comedy show I had rushed here to see! This wasn’t just ANY comedy show… It was “Guitar Guy”, and then Jeff Dunham. Hilarious! One of the best comedy skits I have seen, AND it was free, kinda If anyone has not seen anything from Jeff Dunham, I HIGHLY recommend it.

Oh wait, I never really described what this whole Oshkosh thing is like. Man, well, granted I didn’t have much daylight, but so far it seems like it is a family camping trip on crack. 35,000 campers here? RIDICULOUS. Everyone was riding a bike, or a motorcycle or walking and this “Theatre in the Woods” was completely jammed pack. Luckily, because I am 6′ 3″ I didn’t have too much trouble seeing the stage. Everyone seems to be friendly and this seems like it is a good place to be
Anyways, I got back to the site after the Jeff Dunham show and was still amazed that I was still somehow awake after such an early start to the day. I stumbled over to the neighbor campers and introduced myself. They were awfully friendly, Mike and Kevin who live about 30 minutes west of Chicago. We talked a bunch and talked about road trips. Good times.
