I think we can rule out the BQs as one of the teams to switch detours, because they are pretty physical, so if they wanted to do the rock-climbing i'm sure they wouldn't have had a problem...especially since Dustin didn't have a problem in TAR10.

I think its Danielle/Eric because they are seen there, and Rob and Amber or Uchenna and Joyce [or maybe both are the switchers and ED stay] only because they did the rafting in their last season maybe they would want to do something new. But thats just a guess.  romber and UJ really got a bad deal this race after 5 legs both teams only visited one new country all other teams its al pretty muchl new. I dont know why the race couldnt go to like Bolivia or Paraguay why they kept going in Chile and Argentina.  I feel like this race only goes to 3 new countries?

Sorry for not helping much here.

This is the location of the imar building.  But it is not where the Roadblock happens.  See the backside does not have those 6 dormer windows along the roof.  And the ground topography does not match.  I think the Fish Farm may at the other lake north of town.  It has a lot more hills along the shore.  But the GE rez is fuzzy most of the places.  So I can't find the Fish Farm

Chateau--the big I-Mar building is on the Tenglo Canal --see my post from yesterday...

There is another fish research-y place where our teams are...


And if you have time :please: I badly need some times on departures and tasks--please see my long post just before this fishy stuff started.


Thank you! Missed you! :kissy:

Just catching up here!  I missed this last page.

Now I have the fish farm.  But it is fuzzy in  GE.

Peach

Just woke up.

Teams arrived in Calama at 8:50am if theri flight was on time.  They then went North to the mine, did the detour went back towards Calama (or around the outskirts), drove southeast to the Valley of the Moon then turned back towards Clama and slightly north to the Valley of teh Dead.

Kevin and Drew said they were driving for about 4 hours in the clips from the finnish line, so I expect the teams took about 3 to 3 and a half hours driving after the mine detour.

So I think the arrival times will be 12:40pm to 1:40 pm.  Without knowing how long the task took (including safety talk, changing into gears, getting out of the airport, ect)

But that is just a very, very rough guess.  Where's Chateau and shadows, we want sahdows.

Thank you Chateau! :hearts:

That helps a lot--but any chance of shadow-Chateau-time so we can know for sure whether rafting or Fish-wrangling comes first??

I'm not sure where to have them spend the night! :lol:

I was just guessing.  The airport bunch makes the actual time unimportant.

I can't place this shot.  It does not appear to be directly related to the "fish farm" shot that I can place.

But this clearly is the location of the Roadblock.  We just need to find it in GE.

Chateau--that is the front of the I-mar building--puddin has a shot of the teams running past it, It is on the Tenglo Canal...

But I think that is a slightly different place from our fish tank place...

Lacking a location I can't pin down the time am vs pm.  But you can go by the time line to get that it must be pm:

This shot was taken around 11:00 am or 4:20 pm (assumes November 24th)
