Default Finally done.

After 5 plus years, RV-12, N731JN is finally licensed, inspected and insured.
Special thanks to DAR Jon Ross for flying into 3N6 to do the inspection on August 31. And again to him and his friend Mike who graciously let Jon give me a two hour checkout to make the insurance man happy.
Thanks again guys, the two of you are what make general aviation such a great endeavor.

Default Well done

But, your choice of the word "done" might be a little premature. I've learned that I'm never really done. I didn't build mine, so maybe that is a difference, or maybe I'm just not one to ever look at a project as perfect. But hey, it gives me something to do, right? I hope you are truly done - either way, take some time to go out and enjoy it and appreciate your accomplishment!
Congratulations.
