Depending on the latitude of the area they are in (and since this was filmed in summer) the higher north you are the longer you have daylight.

As someone who had lived 26 years in Alaska, during summer while we do have sunset (at least in most of the state), we for the July and August often have enough light throughout the whole night (ie sun as set, but its so close to the horizen that it never truely gets dark).

Of course for winter the reverse is true where we would only get 4-6 hours of sunlight (and if you had a day job without windows you went without seeing the sun) and of course even further north they go literally without the sun rising.

Just checked latitude.  And Finland is a very close match to Alaska for the latitude it has through its borders.

So what times do you think the teams leave the pitstop (or when did they arrive last week)?

One more thing:  I'm trying to go through all the posts and am trying to determine which is the roadblock and the detour.   ???

A few pages back Chateau explains that in Finland they have unending daylight hours during summer..unlike us.

at Twop's Chateau and the other members do an excellent timeline :

Quote
I was working on some time estimates at home and I will get it finished in a day or so.

But so far, I've got that the BQ's checked in at 2:43 pm.

And for the rest:

T&J at 2:56
R&K at 3:03
Chos at 3:15
Alabama at later than 4:00 but before 4:45 with Kentucky arriving about 5 min before them.


eta more on Finland:

Summer
The sun doesn't set at all up north for two whole months (June - July) and even in the south the nights are just to slip into the early hours of dusk. Summer is the time of the midnight sun.

It's was great to finally see the episode :D though it made me miss the warm summer days  :'(

The spoilers obviously we correct. But will anyone be eliminated in Finland? or will the race just continue to Kiev?

One funny thing that I noticed on the CBS website was that in the map they had joined Estonia and Finland :)

on the finish line a caller asked about the flight from madagascar to finland and how lyn/karlyn made it, tom and terry said the producers would never hold a plane, and jon got real mad because if they did that he would of not got left in south korea. i dont blame him for still being mad, but just something i wanted to throw out here

Hi Signal!   :hello2:   :hithere:

I'm pretty new around here, but I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for all your information and help! It is really thanks to you that we knew all about the Finland leg, and I, for one, had a great time learning a little more about your beautiful country! Now I would like to visit Helsinki, travel by train, and NOT rappel down the Olympic Tower! And it is also thanks to you that we found out about Madagascar and could anticipate all the excitement there. So again, we are VERY glad you are here and hope you will stay around for all the fun to come! :thankyou:

Phil's photos from this week show him in a location I don't think we had previously identified (Thanks to TWoP):

Senate Square and the Lutheran Cathedral--could this be the non-pitstop?

I don't think they need a non-pitstop.........the teams received a clue as well as cash. I think they just keep racing, no Phil involved until the final pitstop.
eta: if thats what you mean by a " non-pitstop?"

Just wondered if we would see the racers here before they go off to Kiev? Or is Phil just hanging out?

And then there is Phil in Waders!

I'm watching realityremix and spot this in the opening when Phil tells us where teams have to fly.
