Hello again, it seems I always find myself doing the remote patrols around here, but what the heck. If you are up, turn on the Today show on NBC, because they are doing a segment on Richard Rodriquez going for the world record riding Boss all summer long. Check it out!

What's his plan by "all summer long?" I rode that thing last summer, what a great ride!!! But, he might take a good beatin' if he plans on riding all summer. Please define the vagueness of "all summer long" - is this every operating hour on every operating day? I wish I had a job where I could take off so long I could pursue something parallel to this.

Isn't he the Diabetic who mastered the Cyclone back in the 70's. Best wishes to him as also am a diabetic.

He was on the Big Dipper @ Blackpool all sumer last year.Thats a fairly tame ride by comparison to some US coasters.........I had a ride on his extra padded seat while he had a toilet break....but all that sitting on his arse shows, he's gone pear-shaped!!

Wasn't he trying to ride it for 100 days strait? I wish they would have shown him at least do one lap.

Oh yeah, why do they keep calling it the "Big Boss?" Isn't just "The Boss?"

This guy must be pretty tough. If I was going to break a coaster riding lenght record I would do it on Apollos Chariot or something else smooth and comfy like that. You can just about fall asleep on AC.
