The bowl games are almost over. If it can't make it to New Hampshire, it should swing through SC and then zig zag the midwest up to Michigan and down towards Nevada.

If its not making it to New Hampshire, the blimp's time on the east coast has been long enough.

Edit + Addition: This is not an ant-blimp post. People all over donated to it, and we want more publicity generated from this in other markets.

Let's bring it over to Las Vegas :)

Yes! And on the way over it can hit large centers such as Saint Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Omaha...etc. On the way to the west it can hit Denver and then finally do a thorough NV tour.

Flying the blimp to Michigan is totally impractical considering the weather.

Currently they are planning to take it back up to South Carolina after a few more days in Florida.

Realistically they should stick to Super Tuesdat states in the Southeast after SC: Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee. Flying over the great plains to get out west would also be a big waste of flight time.

You are probably right about Michigan.

However, they can at least get to the Ohio River valley and the middle Mississippi River region. Saint Louis, Cincinatti, Louisville, Memphis....etc

There will be more donors to the blimp too if people know that they will be able to drive over to see it.

well that's where the majority of the important states are. If we send it to Nevada, it's going to spend several days in the middle of the midwest where no one lives to get there. Let's keep our ad time in useful places. :mad:

There are tons of important places in the midwest. Lets see....Saint Louis, Kansas City, Chicago (Oprah land), Wichita, Milwaukee, Detroit, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis.

Lets not forget Texas in the south central!!!!!!! Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso.....etc

After Texas....Phoenix After that Las Vegas and then CA!!!

The blimp doesn't have to go over the wheat fields. It can make it out to wichita and then head down to Texas....which is the second largest state in population and has two of the top 10 largest cities in the US.
