oh puddin--You find the BEST views! :hearts: We have ourselves a 100% match!  :wohoo:
I am So relieved--somehow it didn't seem right to not have the Pitstop!

Good job on the Ferry Boingo!

I only found some bikes...(can't remember--did we see the bike rental already? :lol: )

 :yess:  :yourock: Great job, Peach! Between this and Jaisalmer it looks like it's ladies night. All you have to do now is find the garage the convertibles pass by and the guys can take the day off.  :rotf: (honestly, we may have already done most of tomorrow's introcaps)

But seriously...the donkeys lead up to the farm, the zipline leads to the donkeys, and what's left for Inis Mor? Even the tandem bike scenery doesn't look like the island. The only similar things are the caps of the teams walking in the rain past stone walls.  ???

We don't need another location to confuse things--but these limestone cliffs could be in the Burren somewhere too.


IMO, TPTB are going to want to have the teams start off with a bang.... so I think the highwire act comes first.

Shannon to the Burren would be on the way to the Ferry.

Do highwire task. Drive to Ferry.

Then bicycle tasks/Hostel/what else? (Detour) on Aran

Then next morning go to Dan O'Hara's for the donkey task/Pitstop.

Maybe?? :lol:

oh yeah...now I remember--we saw them loading up the donkeys next to the highwire, didn't we?

So is the highwire in Connemara then--if we are convinced that the donkeys are at the Pitstop which they seem to be...

I'm not convinced that they have to bring the donkeys to the pitstop peach but am also convinced that the High-Wire and donkey task are not on the Aran islands rather they just do the bikes & rock thing in Aran only --
Clifden is 5 miles from Connemara so I've been looking around there.

Heres what looks like Lorena & Jason getting their clue after the donkeys --

I agree, the teams get the final clue after the donkey task and then drive to the pitstop in the Connemara Heritage Center area.  You see the SUVs lined up by the path that leads to the mat.  The donkey seen behind TK and Rachel is just some local color.

In the Connemara and Dingle Penisnsula areas there are many possible locations along the cliffs for the high-wire act.  Which leads to the Donkey bit.  The one unknown now seems to be where does the bike for two task takes place.  Aran or Connemara?

So in brief Ep One may look like this:

Introduction of the teams as the arrive at the Playboy Mansion, short bios, etc.

Phil greets them and gives the traditional: "The world is waiting for you, good luck, travel safe.....go"

Teams find clues and proceed to Los Angeles Airport (LAX)  (Some teams get lost and miss the early British Air Flight).  Two flights are available (1) British Air to Shannon via Heathrow, and (2) Aer Lingus to Shannon via Dublin.

On arrival in Shannon, teams pick up clue on windscreen of SUVs.  Must drive to Rossaveel, leave SUV in car Park and get ferry to Aran Island of Inishmore.

Upon arrival must do some task or another which leads them to a Hostel to spend the night.  Upon arrival they receive number for the time they can leave the next morning.  During this day it is raining pretty bad.

On the morning of the next day, they receive clue to find a bike and ride along the shore to some location (perhaps the Dun Aengus area).  Here they are told to return to the ferry and return to Rossaveel.  Pick up their SUV and drive north to the Connemara area on the Dingle Peninsula.  Arriving wherever they find their first roadblock:  ride a bike across an inlet of the sea from cliff to cliff with the teammate suspended below the bike.

Upon completion of the task the find a clue box directing them to find a donkey, load it with baskets then load the baskets with x pounds of peat and proceed x miles to a spot at which they will receive the last clue which will direct them to the Connemara Heritage Center and the farm house.  Off they go in their SUV again and finally arrive at the mat just in time to hear Phil say: "I'm sorry, but you are the last team to arrive and you have been eliminated."

So endth Episode Number One.

Is that laminated Gman!? Nicely Done! and I'm not going to kill myself looking for those darn cliffs -- it is what it is and we know how it ends, Ari & Staella eliminated right? and my guess is TK & Rachel first followed by the Goths, Nathan & Jenny -- etc  So onto ummmm India to look for Yogi  :jumpy:

Okay you GE boys---

My theory is that the cliffs (highwire task) will fall somewhere near the areas marked in red.


So while I am slaving away at work tomorrow (oops that would be today!)  maybe y'all will track this down?

I have faith in y'all! :hearts:
