Hello Joy,

We would be available, as long as weather is permitting, for Sunday, February 10th.

The flight would be to take 2 of the labs on the last leg from KSNC (Chester,CT) to KEEN (Keene, NH).

If that works, let me know :)

Hi, Jerry and Renee -

I'm concerned about the weather this weekend - Lisa in NH has told me that the forecast is for a nor'easter, with more than a foot of snow to fall. I would love to firm up the following weekend, if possible (weekend of the 15th) --- Jerry, how far South can you go?

Hi Joy,

Any updates on these missions?

We would be available (weather permitting, but I can also do the 2 hour drive if flying isn't possible) for Sunday, February 18th from KSNC (Chester, CT) to KEEN (Keene, NH).

Please let us know if we can help

Hi, Renee. I'm still waiting to hear if Jerry is still available. I'd love to get this done this weekend - I realize we won't be able to move all of them, but we have 2 yellow labs already vetted with health certificates sitting in boarding and needing to go.

HOpefully, Jerry will respond. If not, do you know anyone else who might be able to take a leg? I'm going to private email the regulars who are in my area and try to get this to work. Thanks for checking back with me.

No problem at all, hopefully Jerry will get back to you with his availability. Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone at this time that could go down that south or is in that area.

I'm getting ahead of myself, but I figure I might as well ask you just in case I need to utilize other resources in preparation... Our crates aren't big enough for 2 Labs. Is there a crate or two that we can use that could fit them? If so, what are the measurements of the crate(s)?

We're here if you need us :)

They're each about 60 lbs. I can send along a soft-sided collapsible crate for one of them and the other can be tethered. Lisa Borst can send back my crate and harnesses.

Renee -

Okay, here's the updated situation --- Daisy and Donald, the 2 yellows we've been talking about, are headed North on Ground transport today. That leaves the other 3 to fly hopefully next weekend. I also have 5 small dogs and 2 Great Pyr/St. Bern. boys to go to Maine.

I have a couple of pilots willing to help out next weekend, but need to know how far South you can travel. The pilots who have committed are in New Jersey.
