The procedure itself is really not complicated, especially in today's GPS world. The town of Ripon is in your database, as is Fiske intersection, so you can preprogram your arrival and follow the magenta line. But once you get close to Ripon, get your eyeballs outside the cockpit and your head on a swivel. Traffic alerts aren't going to help you, because everyone will have their transponders turned off. Stick to the altitudes and airspeeds found in the notam, and try to fall gracefully into line behind the airplane ahead of you. Do be aware of those not as skilled as you. It should be easy to tell when you're close to Fisk and next in line for instruction from the ground observers. Look for the flashing strobe along the railroad tracks, and listen for the color and aircraft type ahead of you: "Blue and white Cessna taildragger, rock your wings." And when you hear them call you, rock 'em good. One year I heard the controller say to an Aeronca pilot, "Try rocking again. That was more like light jazz."
