DONE!!! Lawton, OK - Mt Prospect, IL_Troy, MI: Nov 7th & 8th

Hello Pilots!

Illinois Birddog Rescue is seeking transport for two cute English Pointers from Lawton, Oklahoma (area) to Mount Prospect, IL (area) / Troy MI (area) on the 7th and 8th of November. Please excuse the use of blind carbon copying you, but this is one heck of a long list and it saved me from sending out 85 individual emails. ;) I thought that you would be OK with this since you would not receive all of the replies back and forth from other pilots.

Here are the details:
Transport Date(s): November 7th & 8th
Transport from: Lawton, OK
Transport to: Mt. Prospect, IL
Passenger: "Chuckie" – Male – Neutered English Pointer
Weight: 45 pounds
Transport to: Troy, MI
Passenger: "Winberie" – Male – Intact English Pointer
Weight: 38 pounds

Day 1 Suggested Route:
Legs 1-4 Passenger(s): Winberie & Chuckie
Leg #1: Lawton, OK (Regional area) – Owasso, OK (164 nautical miles)
Leg #2: Owasso, OK – Springfield, MO (129 nautical miles)
Leg #3: Springfield, MO – Brighton, ,IL (185 nautical miles)
Leg #4: Brighton, IL - Bloomington, IL (101 nautical miles)

Overnight Stay in Bloomington, IL- Stacy and Scott Seibring

¬Day 2 Suggested Route
Leg 5 Passenger(s): Winberie & Chuckie
Leg #5: Bloomington, IL - Mount Prospect, IL (106 nautical miles)
Legs 6-7 Passenger: Winberie
Leg #6: Mount Prospect, IL – Kalamazoo, MI (105 nautical miles)
Leg #7: Kalamazoo, MI - Troy, MI (109 nautical miles)

*This route is approximately 900 nautical miles ….

The above route is just a suggestion - I am not a pilot, so I'm completely open to an adjustment in the schedule! I wasn’t sure whether we should try for one day or split this trip into two days. If you have suggestions please let me know!

As e-mailed, I'll take the first leg. Transfer point is flexible depending on the 2nd leg pilot and aircraft (Owasso, OK O38 is a small-ish field at 2600x26, but it does have a good gas price, and it's right around the corner from my parents.)

I am available to do the Kalamazoo to Troy, Mi leg. Troy is my home airport. Acutally, I'm available from Northern Indiana to Troy, Mi on saturday as long as its a VFR day, ( good weather/vis) and the pickup can be made no later then late morning. Is there a cage with the dog? Will there be a person to meet me to accept the dog upon landing? ( I cannot foster an overnight stay?)
