Tweeting Oshkosh

My cameras and I will be attending EAA Airventure Oshkosh in 2012 for the first time in several years.  One of the challenges of Oshkosh has always been that it's a big field, a lot of flying and other fun activities happen spontaneously with no warning, and it's hard for one guy with a camera to cover them all.

To help address this, I proposed on the Warbird Information Exchange that a group of us sign up for Twitter, follow each other, and post heads-ups from around the field when we see something cool happening, chiefly a special warbird or antique being prepared for an unscheduled flight, or perhaps something in the pattern that others might not have spotted.  The response on the forum has been underwhelming but I'm going ahead anyway, and inviting readers of this blog to join.  So, my new twitter account is @Wix_K5083.  It will be active from July 24-30, 2012, after which I may kill it or at least let it go dormant.  During that time, I'll do what I've described above.  Feel free to follow, and if you'd like to share in this little social media experiment, let me know in a comment to this post what your twitter ID is.
