I have one thought, and it's about Rally Radio. Not being quite sure how Rally Radio is set up, this may or may not work.
It seemed that a highlight of the two weeks was hearing Ned and the others checking in. For me, it gave a feeling of being closer and more involved.
I'm wondering, Can Rally Radio be set up so lots of other competitors can log, or call into their account, then leave their message so their own family and friends, and of course the F5 Team, can click on it and listen? Maybe have a directory of sorts.
