Hello Fantastic Friends and Valuable Big Mike Readers!!

 

Today on The Big Mike Road Show we check out a place that Big Mike visited while picking up those two remote coasters out in Montana and South Dakota, Crazy Horse!!

 

Crazy Horse is a monument from the Native Americans to go along with Mount Rushmore, which is not too far away at all.

 

This is kind of off the beaten path, so the Big Mike Road Show will bring it closer, like right to your computer screen so you can check it out!

 

 

Hope you enjoy!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Crazy Horse even has its own post office.

 

Wonder if this is one of the ones they are closing down due to cutbacks?

The gate is filled with an assortment of animals.

Still pretty far away for Big Mike's liking, so we take the bus tour to get closer! See the bus??

I got stuck sitting next to Mom instead of with the cool kids at the back of the bus.

The bus tour also came with a tour guide who told us all about Crazy Horse.

Big Mike and Crazy Horse!

You can see markings on the mountain that still need to be carved.

You also need power up on the mountain, that is where Kaput came in handy.

For a small donation, you could take a rock from Crazy Horse Mountain home with you!

Hopefully Big Mike can come back and see the finished project if it is ever completed sometime in his lifetime.

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!

 

Today, The Mighty Big Man takes you as far down south as you can get before you cross the border into Mexico!

 

Western Playland is the place, the park is in New Mexico, but you can actually see Texas and the Mexico border from the top of the roller coaster!

 

Big Mike caught this park at night during his World Tour, so some of the pictures may be lacking.

 

Hope you enjoy it anyway!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Lets see if anyone is actually reading my comments? Post something about "Megan looks great in that bikini" after you read this. Change up the line with super, hot, ect and describe the bikini, and there will be a randomly drawn winner for the newest Big Mike token of appreciation given to the winner! Lets see how many people go back and look for it lol. Thanks for playing!

Hope you enjoyed!

 

 

Peace, Big Mike

Western Playland looks like having mostly classic carnival rides.

 

Whats always interesting to note is that the light-package on your rides is mostly very, very basic compared to euro rides...the log flume and Zyklon coaster are especially "dark"...
