(Lander, WY) – KOVE 1330 AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time host Vince Tropea got another surprise guest this week in the form of Ian Randman, a recent college grad and cyclist traveling from the southernmost point in the continental US (Key West, FL) to the northernmost point in North America accessible by road (Prudhoe, AK), as a fundraiser in memory of his cousin, Joshua Randman, who passed away in January 2018 following a three-year cancer battle.

Ian dropped by the KOVE studio Tuesday to tell us his story on his way through town, and shared some of the amazing moments he has experienced along the way, including meeting kind folks who served as impromptu tour guides, getting chased by wild dogs while cycling at night, and a voluntary sleepover at a police station that offered to let him crash for the night.
