Chateau the flight started at 11:00am and they should have arrived at 11:50 am.  Which really matches up with your shadows.  Give them time to grab their gear, and get throught he airport should always take several mintues.

Its funny, since I do go through these damn things.

Did the episode actually show a time stamp of 1:50?

Because, yeah thats wrong.

Yeap, I rechecked they put the wrong time stamp on it.

But it also gives us a better indication of Teri & Ians position since they feel that they are just leaving the docks at around the same time of 11:50am.

They also time stamped the first group as arriving at 10:45.  That group was supposed to have left Punta Arenas at 8:00 am.  Unfortunately, for this group it was too overcast to get a shadow at USH airport.

There is one more thing I think you may want to torque into your analysis and that is the E&D and Chas zodiac got loaded up to go in the 11:48 am to 12:03 pm time frame:

Well that sucks and makes no sense at all.

I am going to have to ponder that for a while.

It looks like about a 10 to 15 minute ride to Playa Larga

And then about 30 minutes to the zodiac dock.

And figure about 10-15 minutes to get out of the airport and get cabs.

So yeah, it doesn't make sense at all.

Chateau, I can't figure this out.  If the flight was on time (which it is possible it was late, and we ssume it took a hour to go from the plane to the boats thats puts us at around 10am.  WHich is significantly off.

I have to assume that not only was there a limit on how often the boats departed, but that they didn't start until roughly your time stamp of Eric & Danielle and the Oswald & Danny.

Which does actually make some sense, since in the clips they go to great lengths to joke about how long Teri & Ian must be looking in the hills for the clue box in the wrong direction.  Which does play into Ian admitting that they spent about 40 minutes in the wrong area.  Perhaps he is saving face, and it was a little longer, say closr to an hour.

And lets assume that the first flight did in fact arrive leave and arrive late (which is possible and would explain why Amber that it was possible that they might catch up to the first pack, I mean a three hour gap in the 2cd half of the race is usually fairly solid to the Pit Stop.

This could mean that they might have arrived say at closer to 10, then 9 with a delay. Spent about an hour getting to teh dock area, gives time for Ian & Teri to be lost close to an hour, and bunching point with the times that the boats start hours of operation, would also explain how E & D and O & D know that Teri & Ian have lost a significant amount of time.  They could get to the docks just after the other teams left.  Which would be fairly close to the arrival time of the 2cd flight.  This also helps support why Teri is so worried about how long she is taking doing the roadblock.

Flights lands close to Noon, gives them an hour to get to the docks gives times for roughly a 30 minute wait for Uchenna & Joyce 2cd boat.  To do the tasks and get to the Pit Stop aroung your 1:30-2:00 calculation.

Its the only thing I can think of that makes any sense.

That  sounds like a good arrangement.  I can't wait to hear them say Uchenna and Joyce depart at 2:00 am.  Not even realizing that they gave us a 1:50 pm landing time.   :lol3:

Or, I could just be way off with the time calcs.   :o

They do on occasion get their legend material inaccurate.

But usually if a flight, is significantly off someone will mention it.

But with so much of this episode given to setting up Rob & Amber's demise.  They probably just didn't feel it was worth it to put in of that in any of the dialogue clips.

On World AIDS Day, 1 December, Alliance staff members joined Beira citizens, school students, non-governmental, government, community- and faith-based organisations, in a two-hour march to show solidarity in the face of HIV and AIDS. The march takes place on World AIDS Day each year, and culminated in speeches by those involved.


Isn't Beira like a zillion miles from Maputo?  ???

Yep. Which is why I posted that I didn't think there could be a connection. It was just the only AIDS march I was able to find any info on at all.

Didn't mean to muddy the waters any more than they already are! :lol: (crawling back into my hole...)

Well, I'm no good at these kind of things but maybe this can help:

Oh, VERY good job, Michael D!

That's even more interesting because apskip has previously posted that the training camp for the ratties is there, and that the distance would be feasible.

Quote
I may have the answer to the dilemma posed above. It can be found on the APOPO website. APOPO is the organization running the landmine clearing operation further north in Mozambique, but its training base is here:
apskip wrote:
Mine Detection Rats
PO Box 649 , Maputo - Mozambique
Country office, Logistics and Training base:
Avenida da Revolucao, Inhambane
Tel/Fax: + 258 293 20 126 - Mobile : + 258 82 31 80 990

Inhambane is 300 km (190 miles) north and east of Maputo on the coast. I am guessing that it will be 4 to 5 hours by car or bus. That is doable for tired Amazing Race teams, even though it is equally possible that the rats are imported to the Maputo area for a special task.
 


Inhanbane has everything we need to complete some of the screencaps--beautiful beaches, dhows, fishing, dolphin swimming---but that doesn't explain how they still end up back in Maputo at that doggone fort.

Unless we are looking at this backwards? Maybe they arrive Maputo via Jo-burg but go directly on to Inhambane via another flight? Or car or whatever...

Do the ratties, see the AIDS march, (I would still like a children's AIDS segment here), and then go back to Maputo for the Detour and Pitstop.

Gosh--now I'll have to go back and look at all those Chateautime shots to see if this could possibly fit!

Thanks Michael D!

That seems to be the most logical course for the episode right now. It would explain the clothing (and hair) changes also.

I wonder why the teams aren't driving themselves. Don't teams usually drive everywhere unless the terrain is to dangerous to drive on?

We need Chateau, mswood, and apskip to chime in here!


Is this possible time-line wise??

Oh, boy! At least there is something new to work on! :happy:

I read all those Inhambane blogs last week --off to recheck!
