That screen shot is wrong.   :lol:

I think it said the 11th, and we know that was when they arrived at AMS from Ireland.

Did you also see the screen shot that was a leftover from TAR6 Premiere?   It says August 13th!  (ie 2004)

Ummm--no he wasn't. From TWoP:

Quote
* At some point in the airport sequence there's a shot of a ticket agent's screen that I think reads 13AUG. There are some names shown too and some airport codes that are in the U.S. -- so for those who are interested in investigating, that could contain some spoilery. (I am unspoiled and won't speculate further here.)

Quote
No spoilery there!

If you look close you see two names that may be familiar: Dave Price and Harry Smith

It is a recycled shot of TAR6 Pemiere when The Early Show went along for the ride to Iceland. I have seen this shot get used on some other seasons as well.


What's REAlly scary is that I even KNOW this stuff! :lol3:

Peach would it help if any of these next legs were TBL.  Would the absence of a Pit Stop allow teams enough time to get in and out of the places in time?

Usually teh TBC legs start with a long equilers before going to another country.

But in season 9 (if the damn computers would have worked right) it was planned to get in and out of Russia in one day, and have the bulk of the equilizer to be part of the next country before the first task.

We still have to get them there and now I see what apskip meant about the flights not working this way.

I can get them out of Lithuania but not in time to do Florence before Croatia. So if we go Lithuania-Croatia I am trying to see a way to explain that extra night in Lithuania before arriving Croatia.

And getting them to Croatia from Lithuania in 3 flight bunches is a nightmare--not sure I can find that.

And getting them Croatia to Florence requires them going thru somewhere else--and I seem to only be able to find flights that put them there after 10 PM.

ARRRGGGHH! This is SO not my thing--please can someone else try?  Free Charter flights for everyone! :cmaslol

And could you (mswood) please come over here :http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,13900.msg240373.html#msg240373 and read the next posts and tell me what puddin is trying to say? I am all scrambled up now about the NEL's and TBC's and if we will have any or not. But maybe we should bring your answer back over here...

Thanks! :kissy:

Good Goth we need guidance  :cmas28! When does apskips come back from his *cough*jealous*cough* tropical vacation?

Another thing to look at is my Split speculation as in the producer hanging out in Split, image source picture. Could the teams have spent the 18th in Split? They can drive to Dub from Split though or taxi but thats 3 to 4 hours from what I understand? What about flights into Split from whatsitcalled VNO?

What time do we think that they would get out of Lithuania, could we plan for an overnight in an airport in europe on route to Croatia.

Peach I will give it a tryon flights when I get home (last night I had no spare time at all).  Don't know if I will be any help, but I'll give it a go.

So Puddin how bad do we get to beat up Apskip when he returns?

Thanks everybody, patlini, and mswood!

We are already in Lithuania and not at Rumsiskes till late afternoon on the 17th so that all fits.

There is not (IMO) a way to have them there in time to do tasks at Trakai before Rumsiskes. But if they run into an Hour of Ops thing and start at Trakai on the AM of 7/18 , Pitstop, leave for Dubrovnik on 7/19 then that works.

Or if it is a TBC then leaving on 7/18 for Split or Dubrovnik could also work.

I tried planes, trains, ferries to get them into Florence and I don't see a way to do it before Croatia in time so it must come after.

This site is helpful too on possible means of transportation.

The main thing we need right now is to know flights from Lithuania (Vilnius or Kaunas) to Croatia (Split?? or Dubrovnik). Teams need to be there on 7/19 and I was hoping to find a grouping of three flights that would explain how TK/Rachel "missed a connection by 5 minutes" taking them into mid-pack, how the 1st three arrived early, and why we see Azaria/Hendekea arriving later.
But so far no luck on that UNLESS this is one of those pull a number take a charter flight deals.

We also need to see how to get them from Croatia to Florence on 7/20 because if we can't get them there--maybe they didn't go there in this order. So far I can do it--but not till late at night.

And I still don't know if we have NEL or a TBC or not!! :pull

And apskip better darned well come back with presents is all I have to say!! :lol3:

here are some flights Vilnius to Split on 7/18 but not sure how/if that helps unless we are proposing a TBC to there with a Pitstop there.

hmmm...maybe I should look for flights Split-Dubrovnik on 7/19--they could drive but Our Source felt like they had arrived from the Airport on 7/19. That was her educated spec but still... Okay--I looked--no flights.

I know in Europe during the summer there are a lot of "tourist flights", no sure if TAR would use them.

I was thinking that maybe they head out of lithuania evening of the 18th, get half way to DBV, overnight it in Frankfurt/Vienna and get a connection in Zagreb.  Croatia airlines all hub through zagreb

thoughts anyone....

maybe one of the tasks at the castle is at night like with the knights in TARAS  so check in would be late night of the 7/17

Okay...Chateau just emailed me this: (he can't access here from work)

Quote
Also, Apskip had posted a ZAG to Dubrovnik flight #660 at 10:10 am
which I could not confirm.  I find #660 always arrives around 6 to 7
am.  So I am sticking with the Tom's flight through London that I
posted way back.  That one arrives around noon.  Still, Teams have to
leave the night before to get the London flight.  So I think
Lithuania checkins will be between midnight and 6 am on the 18th
(depends on how far they are from the airport, far away means make
the times earlier).

I think he must mean airport checkins...

And who/what are Toms?

I haven't checked via London...I was doing Zareb, Frankfort, Rome and hoped to try CDG again.

And puddin I know we can't if it is Lith-Dubrov but if we threw in Split then it might? Lith elim, Split TBC to Dubr. Just trying to make this work SOMEWAY!

:lol: I KNOW! I have been doing this all day and getting nowhere.  :pull (:;)

Here are those flights which I had--but connecting TO those flights is trickier. The first 2 are good ones though.
