I can go down to get him from the St. Louis area and get him half way or so to CO, but I am not sure I can do it until after the 4th holidays. I would be willing to pay for his keep at the Tenn kill shelter until I can get him, if that helps.

Depending on the date, I would be willing to fly a St. Louis to Kansas City leg or a Kansas City to Hays Kansas leg.

I can get him tomorrow (Sataurday) and bring him to the St. Louis area. I have arranged for a couple of days of boarding here in STL, This will work if some one can get him to CO early next week.

Frank: That's amazing - I will call you shortly and see if this will actually work.

Pilots - looks like we can get Cuvo to St. Louis tomorrow. Can anyone fly Sunday, Monday or Tuesday towards Colorado??

Email sent, but to keep everybody on the same page: I could fly Monday afternoon (after work) from KC to St. Louis and return. Probably leave KC around 3-3:30 and return to KC by 8-8:30. Don't know if that helps. Preferred airport in St. Louis would be KSET but can be flexible. Direct email and phone number below. Sorry, can't do Sunday. Could maybe do Tuesday at the same times noted.

Any info on the disposition of this warrior?

I think that would work as far as I am concerned. Cuvo will be with a friend who lives very close to Spirit airport, so it should be easy for you to get in and out late on Monday. I can let you know when I get him safely to St. Louis tomorrow and the phone number of where he will be Sunday and Monday.

Frank and Jim: Just emailed you all transport details to get Cuvo from Athens to KCMO. I have also been able to find a ride for him from KCMO to CO on Wednesday so this plan is totally coming together. Look for my email. Thanks!!!
