Congrats! You have crossed over to the side where others say "Why" and we say, "Why not?" Just fly it from chocks out to chocks in.

Congratulations on the accomplishment. We fly for the thrills, and taildraggers are simply more thrilling! Is that the ex Frank H airplane from Dahlonega?

Frank's airplane lives in Texas, this is the sister airplane by same builder I believe.
