Ok, time to put the fur in the wind and the pedal to the metal.
As most of GD is aware @joker1 needs our help.

First pup out of the gate is Billy.


Billy is headed to @gunslinger808 in Az.

We need to Underground Railroad billy from Ky to Az.

Now is the time to step up. If gunslinger could message me your phone info so I can get a more accurate destination we will hash out the details

Until refined, my maps is based on Lexington Ky to Phoenix Az. Start/end points will change slightly.

What I need from volunteers:
1) where you would be able to pick up and deliver to along the route.
2) availability, pupperoni is going ~1500 miles so this will most likely be a multi day effort
3) contact information. Would set up a group text in order to accommodate timing and scheduling a little better
4) probably some shit I haven’t thought of yet.

@spuddicus.  If the route bends down through north Texas, I can meet someone north/east of DFW and take pup a good ways west of DFW.  I am available all weekend.

If we can meet somewhere North of Bowling Green I can take down towards Memphis, weekend is better but weekday can be worked in.

And I’m in on this!
Once it’s figured out a little better I can at least meet at the New Mexico/ Arizona border on I-10.
Or a similar distance.

I’ll reach out to you after work today and we can start hammering this out.

Hopefully afternoon/evening shift peeps will toss their hats in for transpo a little later today. I wanted to get the thread kicked off

East coast cycling off day shift bump. I’ve reached out to gunslinger so I can put an x on the map and then we can work routing and timing.

Don’t forget to PM me your digits and availability windows (next weekend, during the week, etc).

The sooner we get a plan in place the sooner we can reduce the workload for the on scene guys in Ky

Ok. Chatted briefly with gunslinger. Going to poll a few people from the other threads that expressed willingness to transport.

Final destination is southern Az. Gunslinger said he could meet along the southern New Mexico/Az border so the delivery can take place bandito style.

Looks like bowling green, Nashville, Memphis, Texarkana, Dallas, Abilene, El Paso are all along the interstate route.

I’m sure I missed some previous offers. Either way it looks like you guys are in line with the direction of travel to get billy out west.

Message me your info and we can set up a group text to finesse the details. @signig not sure when your next to/from Dallas is but you may be in the pole position going into this journey.

Do you have it covered up until Memphis?

I can get him from LaGrange, KY to Nashville on any Saturday or Sunday.

ETA: I could probably swing St. Louis if that route would be better.

Suggestion, add to the thread title the leg you need covered (driver needed W TX- SW NM) or something similar. It might make it easier for someone scrolling through GD to see this that can help.

We’re targeting a launch date this Thursday.

Working on timings now and the pup will most likely overnight in Dallas if things work out right.

I’ll engage you two and baseball as soon as we firm up everything to Dallas for the final run hopefully Friday

I can pick up early AM.  I'll just need to know where (preferably Ft. Worth so I don't have to drive the cities twice)

@humpr will need to know the next drop off.  We have both will have about a 10 hr round trip each.  Overnighting in Midland will be an issue for me.  My dog isn't going to play nice nice.

Is Billy fixed, shots, good in cars, temperament?  Do we know?
