Cool that is, until they require you to find a green barn...

Let me know if you there are any questions I can answer...

That's only driving 63 MPH. At 70 MPH it's 10 hours 20 minutes.

Sign me up! That's Wright-Patterson AFB, right? Where they took the Roswell UFO crash debris and alien corpses? Where President Nixon showed his friend Jackie Gleason the bodies?

From wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Museum_of_the_United_States_Air_Force

The museum has many rare and important aircraft and other exhibits, including one of four surviving Convair B-36s, the only surviving XB-70 Valkyrie, and Bockscar—the B-29 Superfortress that dropped the second atomic bomb in World War II.

There is a large section of the museum dedicated to pioneers of flight, especially the Wright Brothers, who conducted some of their experiments at nearby Huffman Prairie. A replica of the Wright's 1909 Military Flyer is on display, as well as other Wright Brothers artifacts. The building also hosts the National Aviation Hall of Fame, which includes several educational exhibits.

The museum completed the construction of a third hangar and hall of missiles in 2004. It now houses Cold War-era planes such as the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber (test aircraft), the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter and others.

The museum has an IMAX theatre that mainly features aviation and space oriented IMAX films. There is a charge for these films.

(no promises but it is in the works -- after my first conversation to VWoA they were very receptive) Our Ohio TDI rally racing celebrity Jon Hamilton (RallyVW) is working on a surprise that should be a fun too, so be sure to have your navigation and driving skills sharpened up. Hopefully this is enough to get you to mark the calendar as this is one TDIFest not to miss.

Mike,

This is one of the activities we're thinking about. The NMUSAF is one of the best air museums anywhere. Hopefully, we'll have enough interest to make it a "go". I can promise that no one will be disappointed!

I think the fest should start being referred to with Roman numerals like Fest IIX (like the Super Bowl numbering) since it is becoming a classic.

There are no monthly fees, just a small deposit, and you pay only half as much for the tolls. And you go through the mainline tollbooths at highway speed, as well. No-brainer, IMO.

I did this trip (RT, Cinci to St. Paul) this summer. Had my NH issued EZPass with me - Chicago was a breeze. Nice drive.
