Was not a bad ride overall once we got out of the NV/UT/WY areas, which had the typical annoying speed bumps along the route due to the heat - even at 11.5K and 13K feet msl. Pretty smooth from about Grand Island, NE all the way to Richmond at 9,000 feet.
Recap of the move:
KRNO -> KRKS (Rock Springs, WY): 3.1 hours, 510 nm (VFR w/flight following/radar advisories)
Used Sweetwater Aviation - Nice facility, but nothing to write home about. Prompt service and they had us on our way in under 30 minutes. Fuel was $4.64 a gallon.
KRKS -> KOMA (Omaha, NE): 3.7 hours, 606 nm (IFR)
Parked at TACAir for the night. Rental car waiting for us and we had them park the plane in their hangar ($115 a night but I felt better knowing she was indoors and not outside with the thunderstorms in the area). Plane was fueled and waiting for us on the ramp at 0830 when we arrived. Only extra charge besides fuel and hangar was the airports $5 infrastructure fee. Normal handling fee was waived since I took on almost 50 gallons of fuel. Fuel price was $5.31 a gallon - $.07 cheaper than Signature. TACAir has a really nice facility.
KOMA -> KBMG (Bloomington, IN): 2.5 hours, 456 nm (IFR)
Used Cook Aviation for the quick stop. Nice facility, complimentary sodas, water, and cookies. Very nice for a small airport that is only really busy during NCAA sporting events being held over at Indiana University. Fuel was $4.60 a gallon.
KBMG -> KFCI (Richmond Executive): 2.5 hours, 457 nm (IFR)
Dominion Aviation will be my new FBO heading into the future. Already have my annual scheduled with them starting next week. Good time to do it since we'll be packing out the house in Reno and driving across the country later this month. Gas was the highest at $5.65 a gallon.
Overall, very happy with how the Bo handled and I was sooo much more comfortable than our previous Mooney. Nothing like it, but I'm done with the super long trips for now....
