Rick thanks, that's great!

Our pattern was like those whiskey burners too. We were told, "whatever you do, do not pass and follow the guy in front of you".

As far as I could see in front of me, there were yellow cubs on a 30 degree heading, and Oshkosh was on a 360 degree heading. I guess we did the great circle route.

I can tell you why we were on the wrong course to OSH! The guy two ahead of me left Hartford in the mass departure, but didn't bother telling those of us behind him that he was going to Appleton, not OSH.. I finally gave up when he went feet wet over lake Winnebago, and made a 20 degree left turn toward OSH. The guy immediately in front of me had the same idea at *exactly* the same time. We both turned simultaneously toward OSH. From that point on, there was a large kink in the train of Cubs going to OSH.
