Just want to be sure, I guess. They were both filming in Europe at around the same time, right?

Exactly and I suppose they could have crossed?

I found a GE Panoramio shot that can help to locate the place of our spoiler shots. 

By matching the profile of the rock in the background of this shot it looks like the wall building Roadblock takes place here.

So now the shadow from the corner can give the time.

This shot was taken here between 12:38 and 12:51 pm (assumes July 19th)

I have been trying to get a location for the zipline and this may be a stretch, but I see some late-in-the-day shadows in this shot.  Times to follow.  The reason I think it is late in the day as opposed to early in the day is just because out photographer said they watched the box in the morning.  So this shot had to come later on past noon.  That helps me to pick where it was taken.

I found a Panoramio shot of a suitable TAR destination.  It is some kind of diving spot too.  It has a high place where the photographer could have taken the shots of the zipline and the boats by the raft.  The sun is shining from the West on the team.  They are headed to the main old port 'around the city walls'.

As Peach noted, no harnesses on the team.  So they are always over safe, soft water.  The zipline must go out to a large watercraft.  They are told to ride out and drop!

The shadow on this flotation barrel is as good as looking at a clock!

This shot was taken between 5:04 and 5:48 pm (assumes July 19th)

Only if it moves.

Did you ever ask TAR10 teams about the copper hulled dhow in Kuwait City?

There was an exit interview of Peter & Sara.  They were sitting under the copper hull.

Puddin knows about it.

We should have asked Kentucky about it at TARcon.

Oh yes! I remember that! But Peter went to the West Coast party and I don't think Sara was at TARcon either that season...

 :ot: and now we are messing up our lean, mean spoiling machine here! :lol: PM me?

Peach, your inbox is full, so I'll post the list here.
Georgia doesn't require permits, but you need one in Atlanta if you're using a park.
Wherever it is, it has to be close to an international hub. TAR2 had the longest start-drive of any season (I think); I doubt if they'll make people drive that far again.

Okay, I have a bit more info on the teams.

There were probably 6 to 7 teams seen. They came in a group of 3 or so, then one, then the rest. There were was at least one F/F team. And at least one M/F team who were close in age so could have been boyfriend/girlfriend or brother/sister, etc. That team was in the middle of the pack.

I am going to speculate (oh my gosh) here since it is the right place to do so. The green cap and orange shirt team seen on the zipline and in the rowboat appear to be the grandfather/grandson team that was mentioned by the woman starting her honeymoon(WAMgirl) in LAX who saw the grandson begging for a 1:1 exchange rate on pounds for dollars so they could fly to Ireland.

This fits in with our lady with the pink hat :)

Newbie tarrules00 posts at sucks:
i was IMing the other night with a friend who actually WORKS at LAX airport, she was there when the Amazing Race teams passed through and she got a clear look at all of the teams from very close proximity. she said that most of the teams were "standard" (yawn) Amazing Race teams - the dating couples, MACTORS, etc,but the team that struck her eye the most, by far, was a team consisting of two GOTH girls. she got a great look at them and said they were absolutely beautiful, but not in the standard "mactor" kind of way! i certainly hoped this was true, and by the looks of the girl in the spoiler pics with the BLACK hair, BLACK dress, and pink hat, it looks like my friend has come through with some NEW info! it's great to see the new photos and see different people represented on the show. i think i have a FAVORITE team for Amazing Race 12 already and i haven't even seen a single episode
