THE AIRCRAFT WAS FLOWN FOR ONE HOUR PRIOR TO THIS FLIGHT AND WAS NOT REFUELED. NO RECORD OF A WX BRIEF WAS FOUND. PRIOR TO THE RETURN FLIGHT, THERE WAS NO RECORD OF A WX BRIEFING OR REFUELING. THE PILOT WAS ADVISED BY ATC THAT THE DESTINATION WAS IFR. THE PILOT CHANGED HIS DESTINATION TO A NEARBY UNCONTROLLED AIRPORT. AFTER HE WAS UNABLE TO LOCATE THE AIRPORT, ATC OFFERED VECTORS TO A KNOWN VFR AIRPORT. THE PILOT DID NOT TAKE VECTORS DUE TO LOW FUEL STATE. HE THEN ACCEPTED VECTORS TO A THIRD UNCONTROLLED AIRPORT.
