The Administrator moved your request back. But I see you reposted the request. Please go back in & delete your duplicate request.
If you posted the duplicate BEFORE the original was moved, that means it was caught by the person who moves the threads. We ask that only 1 thread be started per each transport request to keep the board from becoming too long & time-consuming for the pilots to browse through.
If it was moved by accident, I apologize for the error.

Hi. My name is Carol, and I work with Max's Pet Connection in central FL. We recently pulled a mama and 6 pups for a rescue in Chatham, VA, and I have posted a request for transport. This is my first time posting a request, and I have found many answers to questions I had by navigating the site, reading other posts, etc. Now I have an offer from a pilot who can fly them to VA from a location either in SC or NC if I can get them there. Before replying to his post, I checked into help on coordinating a multi leg transport and thought that the mapping options might be of assistance to me in trying to find a way to get this family to either of those locations. However, when the google map comes up and I click on the blue icon by the volunteer names, I don't believe I am getting the infomation that is supposed to come up if I understood the directions correctly for using this option. It keeps telling me "error on page", so I'm pretty certain I am not seeing what I need to see. So, my question is, how do I go about finding other pilots or volunteers along the route that may be able to help get these babies to the offering pilot's location? I did read the posts concerning keeping the request as a one fight transport so as not to cause confusion with the transport coordination. Since other pilots/volunteers may or may not see the request, how do I go about requesting a first leg? Thank you so much for any information you can provide.

Hi Carol,
What I do is pull up the mapping option for pilots (only) on your original posting. I don't do another posting. I send individual e-mails to the pilots who are based in the first-leg area, say FL to SC. Click on their profile and then on e-mail towards the bottom on the profile. In the e-mail, I tell them I have a pilot who can do the second leg, dates, etc. as much information as you know. Then copy and paste and send the same e-mail to more pilots along the first part of the route. I usually do 10-15, then if I have no response, I'll do another 10-15, etc. Most pilots won't respond, a few will tell you why they can't do it and then you'll have one and sometimes more who will respond that they can.

I hope this answers your question. Let us know if you have more.

Good luck,
Suzy

I just found out today that we may have secured ground transport all the way to our dogs' final destination. If that should happen, when I close out my transport request, do I mark it as "done" or as "cancelled?" Also, should I email the pilot who offered a leg of the transport and let him know? Nothing was confirmed...he had just posted that he could transport them, and I thanked him for the offer and told him I would get back with him when I had the first leg coordinated. Thank you for your help. Carol

Carol,
Mark it as canceled since the flight was actually not done. And I always go the extra mile for the pilots--to thank them for their willingness to help. I feel it's the least I can do. So, yes, please send him an e-mail.

Glad you have things worked out for the pups. :D
