Here's a starter; someone made a video on how to save and play Youtube (and posted it on Youtube  :lol:). Look at the "related" sidebar and you'll see different posters with different methods. There should be a freeware program/method to suit most people. The problem is--no guarantees. Providers change, servers change and URLs change. We used to get the Sprint flash files from sprintenterprise.com. With the latest preview (now up; it's the same as AOL, only slightly better quality), Sprint is piping their stuff through Nextelglobal and I can't get at it (give me time  ;D).
Slowhatch, I clicked on your link (Starter)...but the video does the same as nearly every video I try to watch...it stops/starts/stops/starts!!  (:;)  I wish like crazy I knew why it does that and what I can do to make it play smoothly all the way thru!!  I don't know if it's my comp or maybe coz I live close to the mountains...& it can't get the signals or whaaat!!  :groan:

How dare sprint change their URL again  :lol: ! Thanks for the heads up Slowhatch . I have a cheesy way to make video captures , I use my snagit program ... its not the best quality but it gets the point across .

So back to the race :hyper: ..I can sleep tonight knowing that Mary and David are safe at least another week or so !!My TV guide for EP7 hints towards a NEL next week. Doubting Kuwait is 2 legs so what Izabela might have seen was a mix of the 6 teams and simply confused Mary as being Godwins partner ? And I suppose the idea of a fast forward in Mauritius is out the window too .
And this week Peter gets paid back for making fun of Mary's sore ankle and the rude Burger King comment !! Can't hardly wait !! Yay for Mary & David, I hope they win a nice trip for their children  !! :jumpy:

I haven't been following this thread regularly, but from what I'm reading now, it looks as if M/D are safe another week.  I surely hope so!!  Yeah!  :tup:  Luv em to pieces!  :hrt:

That's great puddin. If they pass by the Sharq district, then they might see this Steven Segal look-a-like. He hangs around in the Sharq district.
The clock tower (Al-Seef palace) is near the Sharq district too.

So I guess they'll go to this racetrack in the desert since they're heading in that direction.

Trying to track down David/Mary's pitstop confessional location. Still trying to find the right view, but this place (Ghani Palace Hotel) has the right windows/stucco(?)/ocean view...

Certainly looks like a camel track.  If the USAToday blog, the author states the track he visited was 80 km from Kuwait City.  This track is only about 20 km from the Kuwait Towers.

Here is a brief article on camel racing in Kuwait.

Trying to help the wonderful TAR detectives - I was searching for hotels and came across this picture on Google images...

http://homepages.compuserve.de/tobi671220/bilder/kuwait/Salaam.jpg

It tells about a 5 star hotel that was a ship that was burned during the Iraq invasion - trying to find more shots maybe this is where  or near Peter & Sarah's confession?? 

I know I should be working but, it is quite adicting trying to find images that match up   :waves:

Here's a little closer shot of the Ghani Palace Hotel -- hard to tell, but it looks like the windows with wood frames have that same "sunrise" or "wagonwheel" pattern as the top of the window in the David & Mary shot.

I've already been down the Kabad road, so to speak. A couple of sources put it at 80km northwest of the city (which would put it almost on the border), and another source cites it as 50 km southwest. No GE luck on either of those. There's more than one racetrack, though; and close to the Al-Atraf track I mentioned previously is a smaller track with a tower similar to the one Banzai mentioned. I've also attached a second possibility, a track south of the city with a very small tower.

Any chance this conf was Vietnam? Like maybe they were pulled aside after Sarahs solo conf and after Peter cleaned up? OR its just plain and simple Kuwait pitstop.

Sarah & Peter talk about how competitve the Barbies are .
Not the first time they have talked about the Barbies .


Leaving the pitstop to get to Halong Bay
Task at Halong Bay
Sarah has a private conf , about Peter at Halong Bay . Spec was they may have stayed on a Hotel Boat for the Pitstop.

Well based on Mary & David's confessional they HAVE TO BE SAFE! I hardly think they are serving a penalty in that shot,they look a bit relaxed dontcha think ?
Mary:It would break my heart if they were eliminated.

And I'll laugh right back at you  :meow: ! Since when do teams run as decoys in Foreign countrys and perform tasks  :lol3: ? Can't you see it's misdirection ?

*In a new twist , one team learns they must arrive first at the next pitstop or it could mean the end for them .
*However, in a new twist, the team that finished last learns they must finish first on this leg of the Race in order to avoid a penalty that could cost them the game.
 
*In an effort to aid their alliance . One team helps another to secure the Fast Forward .But doing so puts them in last place .Has this cost them the game?

*One team gets lost finding a clue , allowing three other teams to pass them .Could this cost them the game ?
*While racing through Kuwait, one team gets lost finding a clue and allows three teams to pass them before getting back on track

*The stakes continue to grow and teams realize that the smallest mistakes could cost them the Game. 

*With no elimination on the previous leg, all teams move forward racing to the next Pit Stop.
