    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.

    I just few into KCRE on Saturday, took the fam to get an ice cream(Rita's Italian Ice actually). Payed $15 ramp fee since I didn't burn enough for a top off. The courtesy car was available so that made up for it.

    Yeah, or Anson County. Several choices. BQ1 would be convenient, though.

    That seems to be a common albeit silly rule that many flight schools have. Sure you might not want a student landing on a real rough farm field but there are many grass strips that are pretty smooth and could be approved by name.

    No fuel available at present, but there may be some in a few weeks. He said not to count on it.

    Pretty sure KSOP has fuel, and it's less than 10 NM away.

    Actually MS is considered mid south. AL is considered... well ya know.

    But you are still welcome to join us.

    Or maybe we need to take a poll on that.

    When I lived in Memphis, mid-south is what they called the TN, MS & AR area.
