You say across the country..........just how far are you talking about? Most of our pilots fly single-engine planes, and are therefore limited to 250 nautical miles
(200 ground miles). While a trip can be done in several legs with 2 or 3 pilots, longer transports are very difficult to pull together. You need the pilots to all be free the same day, weather to cooperate and possibly an overnight foster.
Keeping this in mind, here is how you make a request:

On the Board Index Page, where you found this forum, you will also see a forum titled:
Ride Board: Animals Needing Transport.
1. Click on that forum and open it.
2. On upper left of page you will see NEW TOPIC, click on that because your request is new.
3. Have sending and receiving zip codes on hand along with all the pertinent information about the animals and contacts
4. Fill in the subject line, zip codes, answer ALL the pre-launched questions in the form
5. Scroll down and click on Submit, your request is now posted.

You can log in and check your request every day on the board buy clicking on and opening your post and looking for any replies from pilots. You can aso receive an automated email if anyone at all replies to any of your posts. You can read that email and follow the instructions their, clicking on the link they provide for you to take you directly to the message. To sign up for automated notification, mark the "notify me when a reply is posted" in the blue option box below before submitting your request.

Thank you for your reply!! I was thinking about the distance (Santa Ana CA to Myrtle Beach SC) & it IS a huge undertaking... especially with the freaky weather that we've been having... I'm going to try another venue with the operation Roger truckers pet transport... it will probably take a bit more time, but usually the weather conditions don't affect the drivers as much as they do with the pilots Thank you again for replying!
