Way to go! All the blood, sweat, and tears all suddenly seem worth it doesn't it?

I can't wait to see it up close and in person.

Thanks, all!

After nine years, I can still hardly believe the moment is here. Now to get past the head cold that walloped me last night, so I can fly some more. Clogged sinuses and flying don't mix very well
