Where do you find military HELICOPTERS? answer - army, navy or marines bases around the world

Where do you find an army. navy, or marine base around the world? Well, one of them is ANDERSON AIR FORCE BASE on GUAM!

The rafting and waterfall screencaps have still got me concerned, but I have come up with a hypothesis that solves both together. It involves flying from Calama (airport for San Pedro de Atacama) via Santiago to PUERTO MONTT, Chile.  Just east of PUERTO MONTT airport is the Volcano Osorno and the waterfall that could be the one near there. 40 minutes in a very small plane from PUERTO MONTT is CHAITEN, which apparently cannot be reached overland, only by air and sea. Just south of CHAITEN is the RIO FUTALEUFU, which starts in Argentina, sneaks through a small gap in the Andes and ends up in the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the premier whitewater rafting rivers in Chile.

To quote: "Flowing through a colossal granite valley comparable to northern California's Yosemite, the aquamarine water of the Futa rages in a whitewater deluge, boasting some of the world's greatest rapids. Alfombra Magia, Mas o Menos, and Escala de Jacobo are just a few of the many spectacular rapids featured on the Futa." The season for Rio Futaleufu is listetd as December to March, which is consistent with AR11 visiting in late November when the volume might be a bit less fierce. For you Google Earth fans, put in for the Argentina/Chile border 43 degrees 30' 57.63" S and 72 degrees 40' 18.51" W . For the end of Rio Futafeulu, put in 43 degrees 38' 05.73" S and 72 degrees 54' 35.89" W. I had my eye at 14372 feet.

From there, teams would just hop the small plane back to PUERTO MONTT, which has lots of flights nonstop to PUNTA ARENAS.

Is there time for this? Only if it is treated as a prelude to PUNTA ARENAS and not a pit stop in itself. I do not see it as part of a double leg although that is a possibility.

GMAN, I've been all over OAHU and the only military bases I remember hearing about (I haven't visited them) are Hickam Field and Pearl Harbor of World War 2 fame. Was this where you had in mind?

26. 32.
Hi. New here but I've been lurking for quite some time now. I commend everyone for their keen eyes and ingeniousness.

Just to comment on those pictures above (courtesy of Banzai). The kid in picture #26 seems to be carrying a water bottle that has a weird design. Picture #32 does not have any of the hotels here on Guam, and the Hotel Road in Tumon is the only place here where there's lots of tall buildings. It is probably in Hawaii, as puddin noted. Or they could've visited another (equatorial) place with palm trees.

As with that helicopter speculated to have come from AAFB, I'm not sure about this because I haven't been inside the base.
just dance

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

I suspect (but can't prove) that these two caps might be the same place. The background looks similar, but I've drawn a blank looking through Maasai photos.

puddin--you have something!

At first I thought--how could a local Michigan charity's hat end up in Africa somewhere?

But--

One of "Yes We can!'s" associations is with JONAH (Joint religious network of action and hope)--and they in turn are affiliated with the GAMALIEL foundation---and they just sent a mission team to Kenya! in October. They also have a project in South Africa...

So it may all be possible...

Maybe the racers have to throw spears at the round thingies    :angel:

Masai tribesmen are known for hunting with spears and jumping/dancing.

Quite a few more, including:
Fort Shafter
Schofield Barracks
Kaneohe MC Air Station
Marine Corps Base (3ed Battalion, 3ed Marines)
Barbers Point Naval Air Station

I think I've found the intro mountain #28 ; it's definitely the Yanahurco area but I don't think it's Cotopaxi itself. A topo map and some shadows to determine the viewpoint direction should ID it.

Slowhatch--I think this is volcano Quilindana--Whirley said that you could get a perfect view from the pitstop viewing hut.

Quote
the ones taken up the hill are from a pretty little glass hut/viewing chalet, it's almost opposite volcanoes Cotopaxi and Quilindana - really great point to see the bulls and horses coming down the valley, and then into the corals.

Thanks, Peach. I guess I can get to work on the soldiers statue and the waterfall thingy (I'm not as sure as everybody else that it's a river).

I was looking for something else and spotted this. I'm not saying this is it I'm saying it resembles the intro cap.

fwiw: Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil)
