Here's another option - To make a first leg shorter/easier, I could possibly pick up the mom and pups at either Cambridge, MD (CGE) or Easton, MD (ESN), roughly 205 mi. from Goldsboro, and either take them to Harrisburg for the 3rd leg, or could also take them directly to SWF as long as I could leave CGE or ESN by noon. This would allow me to return home to Ft Meade, MD (FME) before sunset. I'm a VFR-only pilot. I may be able to do this on Sunday, weather and wind permitting. I have a Cessna 172 and can accommodate 2 medium crates - one in baggage, one tethered on the back seat.
Let me know If I can help.
