Big Nose Whipper Makes it to Bull Head City, NV

Just got a call from Big Nose Whipper and he has made it to Bull Head City, NV. Hot and no route except the interstate, wondering if he will get a ticket.

He called from a resteraunt waiting out a thunder storm.

BNW hasn't had the opportunity to update his blog since he hasn't found a library or internet access.

Yeah... Bullhead city is REALLY hot! Generally ties with Yuma for hottest in the nation.

He's obviously making good time, especially considering the bike he's riding.

Damn.... I'm looking at the map to remind myself just how far that is...... *shakes his head* He's INSANE. That's a LONG way to go in so short a time.

Hey, BNW! You BETTER give us a route map when you're all done, I wanna see the route you took!
