Peach, that is no doubt the spot!

Here is a way that teams can get from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia by 10 am on the 26th.

CHATEAU, as a former travel agent I can tell you that the connection in Santiago will be below minimums for an international flight. They will not be allowed to book it.

And here is a stab at the timing.

There is a lot of spare time in Ushuaia.  I am sure they tried, but failed to get to Antarctica.  The weather looks like it sucked.  No sunshine.

CHATEAU, my previous information on flights from PUERTO MONTT to PUNTA ARENAS was apparently for a weekday and not valid for a Saturday. The Saturday flights are:

LAN 993 leaves PMC 0920 arrives PUQ 1130
LAN 997 leaves PMC 1100 arrives PUQ 1310

If I follow your increments for the PUNTA ARENA tasks, then teams that make the first flight will be back to the Punta Arenas airport well before the scheduled 1400 nonstop flight to USHUAIA. Teams that don't make the first flight are in serious trouble. Since Charla/Mirna are about an hour away from Puerto Montt airport and leaving the pitstop somewhere around 8am, it's going to be tight for them and also for the Guidos.

I haven't found anything better   :'(

And I'm pretty sure about the Romber/BQs time at the Magellan statue around 1:30.  The 2:00 pm flight to USH is too early for them.

Great job on the new finds, everyone! :yess:

Just a thought, maybe the encircled box type thing below next to the mat is a spotlight, in case it gets really dark for the Roadblockers on the tower to see the flag?

MIKE D19,
The working hypothesis has always been that the teams have to get across the Strait of Magellan by ferry to Porvenir and then have U-drive cars from there for 9 hours to get to Ushuaia and then Tierra Del Fuego National Park.

The second hypothesis is that charter flights can get the teams and crew there by Sunday afternoon.

We always assumed that it was too tight for anyone to catch the 1400 flight to Ushuaia, previously because it does not fly on Sunday and now because there is too much time for tasks in Punta Arenas for them to get it when it does fly on Saturday.

You had it right the first time  MikeD19!

Dustin is pulling the number for the ferry to Isla Redonda--looks like there is only room for two teams per ferry.

 I think the 2PM flight they are talking about refers to flights from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia (Ushuaia=Tierra del Fuego=Isla Redonda)
And we still don't know for sure whether or not that flight will have to be a charter one, but it is possible since there are limited scheduled flights that day.

hmm...maybe the roadblock has something to do with eating, and THATS why rob and amber fall so far behind and get eliminated!!

I'm going with the theory (mentioned earlier) that they strayed from the designated pathway to the mat.  See the green tag on a post next to where Charla tastes the earth.  They are told they have to go back or maybe they are tagged with a time penalty.

And that's it for Romber.

This shot was taken on Isla Redonda looking directly south.

I hope for the sake of Amazing Race thats not the case.  Hate to say it Rob and Amber are prolly the most loved team this season, and for no reason [this season only] the most hated, and people will be outraged if they go out like that.   Thats almost as stupid as making Uchenna and Joyce go back for taking the thing on the stick and not the whole stick.   I know if Romber goes out like that [nevermind over Charla and Mirna] i wont be able to watch.  It was hard enough to continue watching AR6 after the Lena and Kristy incident.

Seeing as Romber and Uchenna/Joycce were the first two teams to arrive in the last episode. but both fall to the back of the pack this episode.. is it possible that at the beginning of this leg they both have trouble finding something and work together, but go the wrong way, making them both fall behind drastically?

And is the roadblock before or after the detour? Because if the roadblock is after th detour, and is located at the other side of the boat ride.. it looks almost definite that the last three teams are C/M, U/J, and Romber.. I hope it is really close  :meow:

RED SOX, please consider that you can expect a huge bunching moment probably near the beginning of episode 4 but maybe also a second one toward the end. If the second one does occur, all hell will break loose as all teams scramble to reach the pitstop under great pressure.

So the ferry pairs have to be one of these three:

Case 1 T&I picks #3
E&D + Chas
T&I + BQs
Guido + C&M
Romber + U&J

Case 2 T&I picks #5 or 6
E&D + Chas
Guido + BQs
C&M + T&I
Romber + U&J

Case 3 T&I picks #7 or 8
E&D + Chas
Guido + BQs
Romber + U&J
C&M + T&I

I suspect it is case 1 or 2 since we be fairly sure Romber is in the last boat.

Also, E&D are in the first boat every time.  They are my pick the leg's winners.
