Thanks to apskips! !
Hello. I'm back from Australia. 24 hours and some minutes ago on Guam I met with  Northwest Operations Supervisor Glenn Weber (only one "b" is correct) and his lieutenant Marie Lizama (she actually wrote and sent out the blog in December about what happened on Dec. 15 and 16 that has made Glenn a TAR celebrity).  I had a 7.5 hour layover in Guam International Airport and Hakushu8, an RFF member who lives on Guam, graciously deferred to me on this.

MEETING WITH GLENN WEBER AND MARIE LIZAMA
Glenn is expecting to  become a local celebrity on Guam as soon as the relevant episode airs (usually within about 10 hours after U.S. East Coast due to time difference). He got a lot of camera time when the F3 teams booked their flights to Honolulu via Tokyo-Narita on the afternoon of Saturday Dec. 16. The previous day was a big day at Guam International Airport as Uchenna/Joyce, the Guidos and Danny/Oswald all departed with Phil on CO904 through Nagoya Japan to Honolulu. Glenn told me he got a brief opportuntiy to chat with Uchenna and Joyce. Dec. 16 had Glenn as the only NW individual on the 2 ticket counters, I believe by choice since he knew what would be happening. First up was Dustin/Kandice, who booked NW 81 mid-afternoon to Narita and NW10 from there to Honolulu. Charla/Mirna actually booked the same flights through Continental's ticket counter. Last was Eric/Danielle, who had run into a NW 747 pilot who convinced them to take the 20 minute later NW73 to Narita to get the comfort of the 747. After Dustin and Kandice heard about this, they decided to change their booking to do the same. The connect time to NW10 was still quite adedquate. Their production crew of cameraman and soundman just barely made it through customs with their equipment to get on the later flight.

TV cameras at the airport caused a great deal of interest from passengers and others at the airport on both days. Recently, the local CBS station on Guam has been showing short advertising clips of some of the local TAR11 action from military bases. Glenn has not been on with Andersen Air Force Base of the Naval Base, but recent info suggests that Andersen is where the action and filming took place. I had as a seatmate from Narita to Newark today a Naval person who was not aware of any rumors about TAR filiming at the Naval Station even though she was not there at the time.

Poor puddin, since I've been at RFF I've never seen you HAVE to "moderate" so much. I know it's tough so thanks for everything you do to keep everyone on track.  :hearts:

OK, enough of the  B:) B:) B:)  :hides

Here is the GE of shipwreck beach and a little info on it: http://lanai.aloha-hawaii.com/tours/shipwreck+beach+lanai/

"Although unsafe for swimming, wild and beautiful Shipwreck Beach remains a favorite stop among many visitors to Lanai, "Hawaii’s Most Exclusive Island." Beachcombers come for the brilliant shells and other treasures that wash up on shore."

At least we know they aren't going to make them swim out to the ship!  :lol:

Thats fine Sups  :tup: :kissy: .. We don't want any "I think or want the Beauty Queens to win ..etc " in this thread, we created the new " I think.." thread just for that purpose. More or less if you have nothing to add, then please don't do it here BUT if you happened to be in Hawaii or San Fran and ran into the racers or finish line then Yeah that! We would love to hear all about it  :jumpy:!!

Hawaii and Lanai Maps!  here .


OK, I'll change the subject to Lanai.  ;D :ninja  Here's a drive-time map, courtesy of FilmMaui, and the picture below shows some spec spots for the shipwreck parking lot (the arrow from the blog pointed right, towards the beach). The Liberty ship is in the upper-left corner.

It looks like a lot of tasks in Hawaii; not just a short one-task and then on to San Fran.  If they go through all the tasks during the day, most flights to the mainland leave in the evening arriving in the morning.  So it may well be that all three teams bunch up and then have to take the same flight to SF and race across town to the pit stop.

OR, have we been misled and the final pit stop is still in Hawaii?

Remember no one actualy saw any filming at the Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park, only a report that it was closed "for the filming of the reality showThe Amazing Race"  Could this be a masterful bit of misinformation and misdirection put out by TPTB.

Most of that footage is definetely in Hawaii.

It looks like this race will be like Season 4 with almost all activities in Hawaii then a flight to the us and then some minor stuff in SF.

 Thanks Rob!  :tup: Fwiw: N4064F, operating out of Kahului with Sunshine Helicopters. They fly all over the islands, though, so no good spoiler stuff.

Cabs don't have to be in the same location at the same time.  Could be two different sequences: taking teams from Hawaii airport to first location; and from SFO to Golden Gate Park

I think the last shots of all the teams in the cabs is in San Fran on the way to the finish line... Dustin is holding a route marker clue to so maybe they have a quick stop in San Fran Sisco before the finish line.

I am looking hard at those cabs--but I have to say I'm not seeing San Fran anywhere!

SInce I Can't tell anything from the cab shots.

I will say Eric when driving and on the beach is wearing far less then in the cab.

Hawaii and Guam are probably a bit warmer at the time of the year then SF area.  So I could believe that cab shot is in the Bay area and thus the reason for more layers on both racers.

Pretend Hula, maybe? I can't find any matching airport shots, but with all those big jets parked, I doubt it's Kahului; the helos probably pick up the racers at HNL.

I'm getting more worried now looking at the screenshots :( C/M and D/E are wearing coats which definetly means they're in San Francisco. The shots with the BQ's in the cab look like they're still in Hawaii :( Unless the editors just did this on purpose to make it look like the BQ's are behind?
