UPDATE 4 FROM JAILBREAK HQ:
Well it's Sunday & several of us stayed in HQ all night so cabin fever should be hitting shortly.... who needs fresh air?
The map is looking nice and spread out now. Our furthest team is in Singapore as we speak waiting on a connection to Sydney and to keep things interesting our team in Abu Dhabi is also heading to Sydney soo expect a foot race tonight!
HQ has also been told that our team in San Diego has swung some flights to Hawaii, not too shabby. The rat is still gallivanting about and is yet to be caught. We think 4 teams are close so we're eagerly awaiting the result.
In terms of other teams there are a ton bargaining in airports and looking for flights & Europe is saturated with fugitives of all kinds. We even have a team skiing in the Alps!! Not too bad for Day 2!
UPDATE 3 FROM JAILBREAK HQ:
Things are hotting up in the #jailbreak14. We've had..... a snapchat from the cockpit of a plane with our team in wedding dresses! 2 teams have just landed in Istanbul and 1 team in Prague! Hq is ripe with rumours and speculation there's a team in Frankfurt looking for connections and there's rumours of people in JFK looking for a flight to Hawaii! Also 3 teams have boarded the ferry from Rosslare heading for the sunny shores of France! Closer to home we've a few teams still buzzin about Dublin one team have donned boiler suits getting donations in exchange for the chance to paint them!
