White Shep Berea KY to Wash DC, Sat Aug 24

Postby lustya on Mon Aug 19, 2013 2:45 pm

Looking for help moving a White German Shepherd from Berea KY to Washington DC on Saturday, August 24th.
"Serenity" is a sweet girl that needs help. This is for Echo Dogs White Shepherd Rescue.
Please let me know if you can help! Amy Lusty, amylusty@comcast.net

I have plenty of information on the dog and will add it once I know pilots could be available.

Berea is just south of Lexington KY, here are some idea legs

Leg 1 Ground: Berea KY to Lexington KY (Filled by a driver already)

Leg 2 Air: Lexington KY to Charleston WV ** Needed **

Leg 3 Air: Charleston WV to Morgantown WV ** Needed **

Leg 4 Air: Morgantown WV to Washington DC area ** Needed **

I'm based in Northern VA at Leesburg (KJYO). I can easily handle the last leg from Morgantown. If KJYO doesn't work Frederick, MD (KFDK) or Manassas, VA (KHEF) are near. Morgantown to destinations on the east side of DC are also workable, but not the ones close in (e.g., College Park, MD) due to 9/11 flight restrictions. I fly a Cessna 150 and would not be able to handle a crate large enough for a shepherd. I rarely fly with crates anyway - there is more room in the baggage area and I just put down towels and the passengers curl up. I could also handle a pickup in Charleston, WV if you can't find a pilot for the middle leg if that works better, but two stops would give her a chance to stretch her legs.

Mel-
For some reason, I didn't get notified of your response! Strange but sorry for my late reply. I put together a ground transport that I'm trying to get drivers for as well, so maybe they could make it to that vicinity to where you could pickup. I made the route on the ground go more south (route listed below) but I'm wondering if maybe you could pickup the dog in Covington or something like that; and then end in Leesburg, I could have the adopter pickup in Leesburg. The adopter lives on the north side of DC so going to Leesburg would be closer than their last leg anyway (they were going to pickup in Strassburg now). See my ground run below and see if picking up around leg 5 or 6 would work if you landed in Leesburg.
Thank you so much!
Amy

Amy,

I didn't get notified of your reply either, so it is my turn to apologize. I just noticed that I had not checked the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box, so bad on me. Just in case that is not the problem, please email me directly (metheridge@mcri.com ), that way we won't lose any more time.

There is no suitable airport at New River, WV, but Beckley, WV, is actually a little short of there where I64 meets I77 and has a good airport. A pickup at Charleston, WV is only a little farther. I can make it from Charleston to Leesburg in about 2 1/2 hours takeoff to landing. I could even make a pickup at Huntington, WV, but would have to make a stop to refuel on the way back. Huntington to Leesburg would be more like 4 hours, so Charleston is preferable.

The weather is supposed to be very good on both Saturday and Sunday. I'm available either day.

Just let me know if I can help.

Regards,

Mel

We had trouble with the dog and had to cancel the transport midway through! Big thank you to pilots for offering and one even flew that day:)
