Whoa! Getting close.

So there are a few situations which will make this site a little less up-to-date than I planned on.

- APRS infrastructure: If there's not a good digipeater nearby (I'm nearly certain someone will have one up) it will cause all the position information that comes here to not come in reliably. This one's totally out of my hands.

- Cellular infrastructure: Everything runs with the fundamental assumption that I will have internet on my phone. If that doesn't happen, I'll be limited to the five or six areas on the park that have WiFi available. I'm /really/ hoping there's good infrastructure. With this many people there surely the cellular companies are putting up temporary towers, etc. I've called people who were at Oshkosh before and never heard about these sorts of problems. But it's possible.
