I departed HEF. Destination for the night was FPR with a fuel stop at RBW. The plane started fine @ HEF and ran fine to RBW. After fuel and a bathroom break, I tried to start the plane and almost drained the battery. I asked if there was a mechanic around someone pointed out "John" to me. Sorry I never got his last name. John and 2 of his mechanic friends got me hooked up to a tug to charge the battery and started troubleshooting. The magneto timing was right on. The general consensus was that the spark plugs had seen better days. They didn't have new ones for my Arrow, but re-gapped the old ones and recommended I get new plugs ASAP. The plane started grudgingly. I forced them to take a $100 bill as they first refused to take anything. I can't say enough about how helpful everyone at RBW was.

No reply on Unicom when called----even when a pickup truck was blocking the fuel pumps. Left fuel pump hose reel is inop...Had to hand roll the hose back up. Not very friendly or helpful and therefore not a stop I'll make again or recommend.

What a great Airport!!! I have landed here twice in the past several months for business. I landed there a couple days ago and it was late in the day but Roger let me use the crew car and waited for my to return even though it was after his closing time. He had my aircraft fueled up and ready to go when I got back. Nice place and nice folks! I'll be back!

Diamond in the rough airport! Diverted to RBW due to weather. Roger Medlin was fabulous, offering crew car and hotel/restaurant recommendations. 177RG was maxed out or we'd have topped off. Filled crew car and left him something extra. Terrific airport manager/ambassador for Walterboro. Great history: Tuskegee Airmen memorial on field--WWII fighter and bomber training base. Will make a point of returning next time we're headed this way. Thank you!
