What I don't understand is why teams didn't look at other alternatives? Maybe a flight to Mombasa and local transport to Dar? Anything would have been better than sitting around an airport all day/night/day...



PEACH: nice try, but it did not result in superior results. There were no flights on Saturday that could get teams from Maputo to Mombasa. On Sunday, there was KQ440 connecting with KQ4616 in Nairobi, leaving Maputo at 1315 and arriving Mombasa at 2330. Since the last 2 teams arrived at the airport in DAR around 1830, they were way ahead by not attempting Mombasa, which is still about 6 hours away by land from DAR.

Puddin

Since I say there is a Fast Forward... There is a Fast Forward.  But looking at the bundles of the clue.  We can clearly see the yellow one, teh red one, a blue one, and tehn we we see it waving, there is aother color below the blue one (in some it looks bluish, but in some shots it almost as a green tint to it.

My question is that part of the blue one or is it seperate.

On your last picture of  Charla & Mirna.

We see on top a blue envelope (what the hell is that?
Then below it at a slightly different angle we have a darker color (where I assume Peach sees Green, i n which we can't see any wording or symbols (but if the Fast Forward, we wouldn't not enough of the card is visiable for either symbol or letter.

Then below that we see the yellow detour clue and then at the bottom of the stack we see the Red Roadblock clue.

So if not a Fast Forward what would that second envelope be?

I want to be right, I really want to be right.

I just rewatched but can't screen capture (thank goodness for puddin!)--

It comes nearly at the end of the clip when Mirna starts going thru her clue cards--the one I'll attach looks green to me when I watch in full screen mode but is almost impossible to tell in regular size--but I think there is at least the card!

If it were a FF, when would they do it?  The tasks don't start until the reach Zanzibar Island, and they don't take much time to do.  And if someone did it right away, and the original pit stop was in Arusha, then they would have been off and running before the decision was made to change the pit stop I would think.  So I agree that there was no FF this leg.

Theres still something I'm not reading right about Phils interview
Phil arrives at the original Pitstop in the dead of night
Plans change, logistics..teams can't make it to the pitstop which is a 2 hour flight away or 9 hours driving?
Phil asks the crew if they could fly them back in the morning
Crew says no
So Phil & production fly back with the crew at night and get to the new pitstop at 3am?
then Phil & crew go out in the middle of the night for the pit stop, having not been to bed at all.
"There was no facility for any of us, like chairs or any of that. So at one point there was 12 of us, cameramen and production people, all tightly packed onto the mat, which was lying in a grassy area, being absolutely annihilated at 3:00 am by mosquitoes"



Time will tell  :wohoo:



Do we have any proof that this happened this episode???

Hey you guys!!! I think this is exactly what happen this episode. The logistics Phil is talking about is the airport nightmare.  Then they had to change everything including the Old Fort pit stop.  I asume if the normal schedule of event keep going, it was going to be a nightmare for poor Phil and crew.

Just my 2 cents.

Just to add a last little footnote:

Did you notice in the Elimination Hotel or whatever that Ian and Teri were flown all the way from Zanzibar to Acapulco?  So now we have all five eliminted teams enjoying the white sands and Margaritas in this paradise by the sea.  I wonder if the next elims will be sent here or to somewhere in the Pacific?

2nd sequesterville is Nagoya Japan. I forgot exactly where I found this out. It should have Joe/Bill and Uchenna/Joyce.  They go on to Guam.

Just in case anybody wanted to know, the dhows had to go about 55 miles.    :diver:

Nice Chateau!

At 6-9 hours, they only go 6-9mph?

Here is a modified version of my TIMELINE from post #438, slightly different from CHATEAU's due to my assumption that the puzzle place closed for 6 hours.

1. Dhows leave DAR dock at 530am (C/M, O/D), 830am (U/J, D/K), around 530pm (E/D) and 830pm (I/T, J/B), but puzzle place was not open after midnight(assume it opened 6am).
2. Crossings take 6 (I/T) to 9 (D/K) hours. Some may have taken more, but there is no way to know which ones. I will use 6 except for D/K and U/J
3. From west coast Zanzibar island to the museum was supposed to be 1/3 mile on foot, 5 minutes. Logs were 2 miles by taxi, then 1 mile by cart.
4. Puzzle looked like it could be done in less than 20 minutes by a sharp team(U/J or J/B) or 30 minutes for a slow one like Ian/Teri.
5. Logs could be done in about 40 minutes to get to the source, load, travel, and unload.
6. Distance to rungu toss was 15 miles or 30 minutes.
7. Rungu toss looked like to took 10 to 30 minutes.
8. Trip back to Old Fort, Stonetown would probably be in the 30 minute range.

Add it up and you get:
C/M finish line at 1400.
O/D finish line at 1410.
U/J finish line at 1945.
D/K finish line at 2015.
E/D finish line at 0125.
J/B finish line at 0740.
I/T finish line at 0745.

With this detail, I get 17 hours, 40 minutes as the lead Charla/Mirna have over Joe/Bill. The key to this is the assumption that the museum closed for 6 hours. This was substantiated by the fact that they were in daylight when exiting the museum, which if I/T and J/B landed Zanzibar around 0230 would have been impossible.

While the dhows had a prominent sail, they were also powered by an outboard motor.  The producers could have asked that some boats sail while others used power.  If any of the boats actually sailed from point A to Point B, wind direction will play a huge role in the path of travel.

6 mph to 8 or 9 mph is very reasonable for a ship such as the Dhows.

With the angle of the sun directly into the eyes of Phil when C/M arrive seem to indicate that it is later than 1400.  Sunset in Zanzibar on Dec 5/6 was at 6:28PM so it looks like it should be later than 1400.
