Oh there is no doubt my plane can do it. And while I have lots of short/grass airports under my belt, I haven't had the need/opportunity to do them in my plane. I used to fly a Cessna 401 in and out of peach state (GA2) which is 2400 ft with GA pines off both ends...when I was short field twin proficient. I will probably draw the line at Gaston's or greater. Outside of that I'll buy a few beers for a semi-trusty ferry from a nearby airport.
