Round the world flight is a whole different animal than what this guy must have in mind.

CONUS-to-Hawaii-to-Guam is all USA-to-USA-to-USA clearances: no international clearances involved... and minimal over-flight of foreign territory [primarily island nations].

Geewhiz Note.
250-Gallons of AvGas = ~1500# of gasoline
400-gallons of AvGas [max capacity?] = ~2400# of gasoline

Whew... blowing a tire on takeoff would make for a bad day.

Next leg??
