Default Passed my checkride in an RV!

After 140 hours as a sport pilot, and six months trying to arrange schedules to fit in the transition/ night / hood time required to take the PPL checkride, it is finally done! I'd have been smiling in the photo, except it was 100 degrees outside, and he hadn't yet told me whether or not I'd passed! (Maybe the photo was for the wall of shame... who could know???

Can't wait to share the rv experience with family and friends now.
