    Headed from CYOW to KHND, and Nebraska seems to be a good halfway point. Any good fuel stops recommended?

    For cheap fuel, check out OFK. I was there at 2am so I can't help with food, etc.

    I used to see lots of people taking a pit stop in York, NE. KJYR. I haven't been there in a while, but they have a couple crew cars and lots of options close by.

    Garden City. There's an Italian restaurant on the airport that's not bad. You could grab a quick crew meal while you're fueling.

    It beats the heck out of Jimmy Johns or Jason's Deli. Plus the flies ask flavor. :)

    Garden City has the added benefit of a giant feedlot. If it's low and the ILS is down, you can follow your nose to the airport.

    Try KGRI (the original bizjet transcon fuel stop) or KLBF. LBF is only about 6 miles off your straight line. Both places offer great service, but are a bit rustic. North Platte will have better food closer to the airport if you're looking for that.

    GRI Has always been a good fuel stop for us when we used to cross the country in the 500 series citations. Quick, decent price and nice staff.

    500 series Citations? That, sir, is going back a few years...

    I've never been to GRI but it seems to be a go to on the schedule if we need to make a fuel stop in that area.
