I am located in Kansas City and would be willing to do part of this flight one night this week or this weekend.

I think it would be easiest to break it into three legs. I can do the Eastern leg. Someone in central KS to do the middle leg and someone in Denver to do the final leg.

Below are two potential flight plans, others would be fine as well.

KJLN->KSLN = 1.6 hrs (I could do this route)
KSLN->KGLD = 1.75 hrs
KGLD ->KAPA = 1.4 hrs

or

KJLN -> KMHK = 1.4 hrs (I could do this route)
KMHK -> KCBK = 1.9 hrs
KCBK -> KAPA = 1.7 hrs

Can anyone let me know if I flew (KMKC->KJLN - to p/up dogs, KJLN->KSLN -w/ the dogs, KSLN->KMKC - return home) can I take a tax deduction on the whole trip?
Thanks, Eric

Thank you Eric! Will forward to our wonderful Denver pilots to see if anyone is available to help from this end.

Eirc, I am based at GPH. If you could bring the pups to GPH I could fly them to Hays, Kansas or thereabouts.

Thanks Sam, sounds like we just need a Denver pilot then to meet you in Hays. What days would work for you? It seems to me with the heat, the earlier we can do it the better.

Mon-Wed next week would work best for me, but could do Sat or Sun as a last resort this weekend... Meeting you around 8:30 at GPH with the dogs, assuming I could pick them up early in Joplin (around 7 or 7:30).

Do you have crates for the dogs? Might see if I can borrow them in advance if I don't get the crates in in time.

Let me know what works best for you.

Thanks,
Eric

BTW, Sybil, is there a time-frame you need to get these puppies to Colorado? Thx, Eric

The sooner the better for our temporary foster in Joplin, but she will keep them until we can safely transport.

Guesstimate on time we would need a Denver pilot in Hayes? Weekend probably better as they work, but can post a few options re: what works best for you two. Thanks! Sybil

Depends on how fast Sam's plane is but at 120 kts (please correct me Sam), but I would guess 11:30 in Hays. How early could someone meet us at the Joplin Airport?
Thanks,
Eric

Not sure where you guys are with this transport, but I could do the pickup in Joplin and deliver to Sam at GPH if needed. I'm fairly open depending on the day. Please keep me in the loop.
