Last night I flew from Easterwood to Ellington Field via I-10 corridor on flight following. Got Bravo clearance for the first time, 11 touch n gos (edit: stop n gos), then back to CLL for a total of 3.1 night training hours. I have everything I need hours-wise now. Will schedule a check ride on Monday. I started last July and it has taken me 3 months longer than I had hoped due to life. It has been a TON of fun though.
