Checking the stats for this blog was surprised to see that someone from Gabon in West Africa visited the site. A Hawkeye expat in Libreville perhaps? Would love to know the connection. Googling Iowa and Gabon I stumbled upon Susie Smith, a hairdresser from Charles City who was a contestant on Survivor Gabon. I missed that season but it looks like Susie was the runner-up. Perhaps the ripple waves of her time in the limelight created a fan of Iowa in the jungle she almost emerged victorious from.
