The Sea of Piper Cubs at EAA AirVenture

My Passion and My Name: A Case of Wish Fulfillment in the Sky & Terra-Firma

If my last name dictated my special interest then the same held true for my Dad. Both of us love flying our small aircraft, Piper Cubs specifically, and our favorite event each year is EAA's AirVenture held in Oshkosh.
I often wonder if we love to fly because "Wind" is part of our last name "Windsor", but this I know: Every July, my Dad and I take time off from working our Farm in Sacramento to for the EAA fly-in, where 1000s of small aircraft literally fly-in for 10-days of nonstop talk and news about all things relating to flying small aircraft. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.
