GETTING TO THE AIRPORTS!

 

Plan to drop ONLY at DSM airport - - CIT TRANSPORTATION - AMES

There is NO plan to stop at any airports, thus you would be on your own to get to Houston Airport System (HAS) (Texas) if you wish to leave from Houston. See also Rev's Plan.

Estimated time of arrival in Des Moines (DSM) is after 2:00 AM (during the night) on Monday, March 26. We can make a drop at that hour. See me if you want to drop in Des Moines and we will see if there is an all night restaurant nearby.
