Rosemary,
If Steve can stop in Kinston to pickup Hercules then I think we are all set as far as Northern Virginia. I can get two pups or Hercules to NJ (max 120 lbs.) but I cant take Hercules and the pups. So as I see it you need a run to RI for those two pups plus another flight for Hercules to NJ.

Rosemary,
From what I can tell, if Steve can stop at Kinston to pick up Hercules, we are all set as far as Northern Virginia. From there I can take either Hercules or Hershey and Juliette, but not all three, to NJ (120# weight limit). As of now, that leaves Hercules to NJ and Noelle and Rudy to RI with nothing from Northern Virginia onwards.
Regards,

Would also like to know if the dogs will come with crates as I won't have enough for all of these guys.

I will not be able to fly as far east as Kinston; unless a new pilot can volunteer to take the Kinston - Northern VA leg, I'd suggest separating the transfer such that all the dogs except Hercules come with Cristophe and Larysa to Greenville, then fly up to Leesburg with me, to connect there with Mel. This makes sense from the standpoint that Mel cannot take all the dogs north anyway. Hercules would of course then need a separate transport.

Mel--I'm based at JYO too! Hangar A-10.

Steve - Please let us know if you can fly from Kinston, NC and, if so, how far north can you get the dogs for us?

Christophe - the dogs usually don't come in crates. Please let me know how many you have and what sizes they are.

Thanks!
PILOTS ARE STILL NEEDED FOR THE NORTHERN LEGS OF THIS TRANSPORT. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO MAY BE ABLE TO HELP!!!

Rosemary,
I would prefer no crate(s). My passengers seem to do fine without them in the baggage area. They just curl up and sleep. I'll try a few pilots here at JYO to see if I can find some further transport. I agree that splitting Hercules off at this point may be the best approach.

Steve,
I'm on the upper ramp, front row, spot G-11.

Regards,
Mel

If I understand correctly, two puppies (Noel and Rudy) need to get to RI

I can get them to RI from NY or NJ. How far North can you get them?

Hi all. I could get them from Winchester or leesburg VA to NJ anytime this weekend (Friday to Sunday). I am fine with taking just Hercules or the puppies also so maybe we can spolit them up to meet that leg.

How about this?

Steve takes all 4 puppies from Greenville (origin) to Leesburg on Sunday, 11/25, connecting with me and Tim.

I take Hershey and Juilette Leesburg to central NJ (destination)

Tim takes Noel & Rudy Leesburg to NJ and connects with Iceman 1007

Iceman 1007 takes Noel and Rudy to Providence, RI (destination)

That leaves poor Hercules stuck in NC, but gets everyone else to their destination. Otherwise, at this point, we are still short two legs: Hercules NC to VA and Noel and Rudy VA to RI. By splitting Hercules off we add some flexibility in where the handoff occurs, when, etc.

Thoughts?

Good plan, Mel, except for the flight from origin to Greenville with Cristophe/Larysa. I suggest we confirm the full plan with them, Tim, and Iceman soon.

I will be flying a turn-around and hope to arrive/depart Greenville around 11 AM/ 12PM. This would get me back up to Leesburg around 2.
(Cristophe, I will probably need to make the airport GSP rather than GMU, as I have passengers to drop off, but we can confirm this later.)

"Free-range" dogs (uncrated) is my preference too, as my cabin will not accomodate multiple crates. Leashes are all that is needed.

Regrettable that Herc is excluded and will require a separate transport, but I don't see how the present plan can accomodate him.

Thanks,
