I fly to columbia a lot (60 miles west of STL). This would avoid the Bravo issues. Long runway ILS approach and good FBO w semi-reasonable fuel. There is a also a field about 10 miles due east of columbia with very cheap fuel (I forget the name). Long runway, but no FBO. Mexico to the north has mogas cheap if that is of interest.

Fulton is east Columbia. Self serve fuel at good price and 2 runways. I was camped next to you at Oshkosh last summer and am based in Camdenton. If you stop by i have hangar space and transport. Lake of the Ozarks is a beautiful area.
