I probably should jump on here so I can stay in the loop
Urkel is originating around Branson, and unfortunately I'm stuck in our 172 that day. Heading all the way to Nashville and back to base in Memphis would likely put me above 7 hours of flight time (so far my longest has been around 5), and that's before taking into account any winds. I'm working with Moni to see if we can get him a bit farther east to hand off, but I wanted to see if someone would be able to fly out to meet me in Jackson, TN or thereabouts? That would cut my total time down to a more comfortable figure.
Thanks! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some good VFR weather that weekend.
