Hi, I'm Don and I'm based at KXSA (Tappahannock, VA). I volunteered to fly to KEYF (Elizabethtown, NC) and bring *some* of the animals back. I'm flying an RV9A and my baggage compartment is small. I'll do the best I can and I know Sylvia is very good as fitting things in. I am willing to leave fairly early and bring the animals back to either KXSA or KHWY (Warrenton, VA). If it would be better for a pilot that I took them to Cambridge, MD, I'd be willing to do that, too. I'd like to keep my flight time to 3 hours (KXSA to KEYF and return but I'll go to four hours as needed - which would take the critters to KHWY or Cambridge) and then I'd return empty to KXSA.
I have room for one crate and I'm trying to figure out how to get two or three crates (stacked) into the baggage compartment. I don't think weight is an issue. At this juncture, I'd suggest a phone conversation between pilots would be in order. My cell number is (804) three-five-six-3232. Ideally, I'd like to hear from someone willing to pick the animals up at KXSA and go to Frederick but I'll meet someone at Warrenton, VA or Cambridge, MD, if that works. I'd really like to nail this down.
And if the weather holds, Monday is a holiday....I could make another trip.
