Today, I become a man. At 6:15 PM Eastern my three month journey will come to an end. I am picking up my first pin: an absolutely beautiful CQ IJ.
Wish me luck. I have to carry the thing up two flights of narrow apartment stairs.
I'll post pictures and give you some backstory as soon as I am able.
Oh, and a HUGE thank you to all the generous and kind Pinsiders (especially in the central NC area) who have followed, messaged, and guided this pinball newbie to "fortune and glory".
