Lola's Dad...I have a friend that has his own plane and is a private pilot, you would be surprised at the cost of doing that...at almost $4 a gallon for fuel it's ridiculous, because they go in gallons per hour, and even his little 4 seater plane goes through approximately 10-13 gallons per hour, which would not make it very cost efficient from somewhere as far as Spokane. We are flying down to Oklahoma maybe this winter and it's going to be several hundred dollars to do so, for a 4 hour ride one way...this is much more cost efficient though I like the idea of the pilots doing it.

Got a call this afternoon from the folks that are transporting Shadow, what a nice couple! I may have made a semi-local friend as they live south of me.
Pick up is going to be tomorrow evening sometime just north of Denver so it all worked out wonderfully as I'll have plenty of time to get up there and back at only a 2.5/3 hour drive one way. Much better than the original plan even though we were going to fly up, it's much easier on my checkbook not having to split fuel with my buddy for his airplane.

This worked out wonderfully, Matt's birthday is Sunday, so just in time.

Yes, they are super nice. They called me today to let me know Shadow is doing great in the truck and is very comfortable with her surroundings. (I'm relieved because I was afraid she'd be scared of their two cats!)

Wow, that is great timing! Fate, I'm tellin' ya. Happy birthday, Matt!

We flew up to Denver this evening and picked her up. She's a bit spooked up, but seems to be fine. She ate a little bit when she got here and used the litter box and has resigned herself to chilling out.

I should have kept an eye on this...I was in Northern Denver today and could have brought her an hour closer to you.

Glad you've got her and she's seeming to accept all this!

We flew into Rocky Mtn Metro airport so it wasn't far, and they gave us a car to use for free.
She only got spooked up because we had some turbulence coming into Colorado Springs, so it was a bit bumpy for a bit, didn't do much for me either.

Yay! I've been checking this all night . . . I'm breathing a sigh of relief knowing she arrived safely.

Another happy Chazending!

And another great beginning!

Yeah we got home pretty late due to weather and we got dinner and all that while we were still in Denver since neither of us had eaten all day.
The ride back was pretty bumpy, especially in a small plane, but fun.
