The idea of the $100 hamburger is simple. You get in your airplane and fly to a nearby airport and buy a hamburger at the airport's restaurant or cafe. Then fly home. When you figure the cost of AVgas, future maintenance on the airplane, insurance, possible landing fees etc. it can easily add up to the famed $100. Here in Alaska, we do things a bit different. No nearby airports, no restaurants, people, or hamburgers even. It does take a bit of planning and some physical work. It is well worth it in the end.
