Where do you need help?

I could possibly do a run from Denton, TX (north of DFW) to Austin

Will need to be a weekend and VFR.

Thanks Mike. Yes I am shooting for this weekend.Dec 13-14 Since he is so far I'd like to minimize the # of hops & transfers due to his special needs and just overall excitement and playfulness. He does travel well in the car for extended periods though. If I can arrange transport from Indy area to Memphis- ish it would considerably cut down on the drive I have to make. Best case I could co-pilot from Austin and back.

The aircraft I have access to is club owned. I just checked the schedule and another member has it for this weekend. But I will put in a request to be first in line if he cancels. But let's not build a schedule around it right now.... keep me as a plan B over driving from D/FW to Austin.

There are other pilots in the area who help with PnP... you might post a request on www.dfwpilots.com/board to see if anyone else can help.

George has hops from Nashville-Memphis-Texarkana so we need the Indy-Nashville and Texarkana-Austin legs. I can copilot up to TXK from Austin-ish or just drive up to meet the plane. First leg departs aprox 1200 this Sunday 12/15 and hands off in MEP around 1-2 w/ETA in TXK around 4pm.

You all are so awesome!! George and I thank you!

Chris H mentioned possible WX in Nashville Sunday morning and is looking for an 1100 local departure. I would guess 1.5 hr en route to meet you in Covington.
Jane will meet you in KATA Atlanta TX for p/u for flight to Georgetown TX where I will meet for final pickup.

I was looking forward to meeting and flying George but glad he now has a flight direct to Austin , TX. However, if his flight has problems, I'm still open.
