And my most favorite--DUNE BUGGIES!

They go out in the desert, up in the hills, through the gorge (gorge open at night!)

I think Bama gets yielded, and the BQs get a flat tire.


Didn't we see the BQ's in a car saying: "Look R/K have a flat tire--don't stop!"  I know I saw that somewhere and don't think we've seen it on the show yet...

Here's what I'm thinking about flights...

If they take one of the flights above that arrive at night,(and if they can't get a flight by 9AM according to this they WILL arrive at night--and we see them driving at night!)-- they would have time to drive the 327 miles to the movie studio--do we know about what time of day the roadblock is? If it is first thing in the morning, then that would work. But it really depends on how long the Kiev pitstop is to determine which day/what time they can get a flight!

I'm thinking that the "in the shop" scene with D/K could be in the Marrakesh souks...
OOPS!!!!!!!! :duh: Sry I ttly forgot tht...

Thanks puddin--I'm having fun!

Maybe I can be a TAR location scout in my next life!

Possible PITSTOP--Oscar's Hotel located on site at the Atlas Film Studio...

We think SO much alike! I orbitz'd them but funny enough--the pool and restaurant are striked out and they show no rooms available --I stopped checking in 9/07...maybe they are under construction?

And now I know why you have "I need a life" under your avatar--I've accomplished nothing today but exploring Morocco!

And do you know you just clicked over 34,000 posts?! (now 34,008!) :conf:
Heck, I was shocked to see I had 200! :lol:

I found a pic of the Atlas entrance gate where the teams are being let in. You can tell it's the same by the small circles in the iron about waist high. It also is a roll gate like in the previews. The picture is HUGE and I still haven't fixed my software so I'm e-mailing it to you Puddin so you can shrink it and post it. Thanks.

So we have an hours of operation where the teams get bunched at Atlas. Can anyone find out their opening time? It's no surprise that the Bama's slow running is what gets them yielded.

Sups, I think the opening time is 9 am based on the time for the yield sign.

OH ! Chateau!!  :hearts: :thankyou: :hearts:    Thank you so much--that helps enormously with trying to figure out flights and stuff!!

But does it change much if it is June 20?? puddin and I are thinking that there was a long pitstop in Kiev...

Just bumping this up in case you missed it Chateau! It really helped a lot!

No, the change is seconds to a minute or two for a one day error in the date.

Also, the shadow on one of the Bamas at the gate gives a solar azimuth just a little lower than the one for the yield sign.  So I am sure the opening comes right before the yielding.

Slow Bamas    :yess:

And you know when the BQ's are saying "we choose to yield bama" that they are probably just behind them. Those girls are brave! I'd almost be afraid to get my a** kicked!  :knuckles:

Great picture Sups!

Just wish the Yield would knock those girls out of the race! It would  be kind of hard to yield someone with them staring you down though... :hides

someone mentioned this up-thread? pretty sure.

Ait Benhaddou

We headed down to Ouarzazate (a movie-studio town, medium-interesting) and Ait Benhaddou (an amazing city they use as a backdrop for movies like Gladiator, because itís so picturesque. Itís so cool itís worth the trip by itself.) From there we took a camel ride and slept in the desert with the Blue Men nomads, which is not for everyone but we really enjoyed - despite getting caught in a nightstorm and waking up covered in sand. :)
