Friday, 5/3, looks, at this point, to be the first VFR-flying day we're likely to have this week. If I'm flying Houston-Slidell-Dallas-Houston, I'll need to take off from LVJ at 8-9 a.m. It's about 2:15 to ASD. Transports will need to be there as early as 10:30 if I depart at 8 a.m. (or 11:30 if I depart at 9). Figure up to an hour on the ground to load and refuel. Then, it's about 3 hours to Terrell (TRL) outside of Dallas (I'd prefer to land there so I can avoid the hassle of dealing with the D/FW Bravo airspace, or towered field, and TRL has a fuel truck that can refuel me quickly). It would put me into TRL as early as 2:15 (8 a.m. initial start) or around 3:15 (9 a.m. initial start).
