Tom LeGates  3/6/18

On our monthly fly-out in November to Watertown, WI, we discovered the Perkins restaurant adjacent to the airport is closed. There is a nice restaurant called 'The Spot' which is about 1 mile north on RT 26. In nice weather a nice walk from the airport, or use the crew car if available.

From Ole 6/20/2017......

I flew to Milwaukee’s Timmerman Airport today with George Haupt and George Roby.

The FBO there now charges a $ 10 parking fee, - they call it Ramp Fee – this is new, never did that before.  The fee is waived if you buy at least 10 gallons of fuel.  Present price is 4.28 per gallon.
