I just got a call from George a minute ago and he is about 25 miles out from the second checkpoint. He has no cell coverage, but one of the other racers allowed him to use his phone as they were walking one of the "B" roads. His quote of the day...
Iowa is NOT flat, honey!
Hoping that either he gets some coverage or that he can give me another call to update. If you've been trying to follow Guitar Ted's audio blogs, they seem to be on the fritz for now, unfortunately.
