Yeah mushpants don't start rumors without something to back it up, the next thing you know people will be taking this as gospel or something.
I have to back this up because on a 24-related board, I made a joke that a character's dead body would be thrown into the bad guy's bunker to smoke him out. It was a joke, but because I didn't put a smiley on it, a lot of people took it and ran with it and made it gospel. It was spread to three other boards and the mod told me to make a statement saying it was a joke, but it was too late. Either back up the statement or put a smiley to say you're joking otherwise it's going to spread like wildfire.
Just here to visit.

Because I am way confused as to which sister is which!

Dark shirt is ? White shirt is?

Because if dark shirt is Marianna--I thought she told Julia to do the Roadblock? But it is dark shirt who seems muddy?

So--who is who and who did the Roadblock?

It is  worse than learning to tell the BQ's apart was! :lol3:

I have to agree with you on that one.

Swim suits help in distinguishing these two.   :angel:

Smart ass!   :knuckles:

Okay:

But who is dark shirt? Is that Marianna? So she does the Roadblock?

And we know 3 teams for the bike detour and 2 teams for the Hoist detour but that's it, right? No idea who does the rest right?

Just ummm..making a list and checking it twice!

Very brief rundown:

Teams leave Ireland pitstop very early in the morning or rather still in the middle of the night.

Drive to Shannon airport.  Find flight to Amsterdam via Heathrow.  All teams end up on the same flights and arrive in Amsterdam together.  Take the express train (20 minutes) arriving at the Centraal Station.

Find first clue hidden in a rack of bikes.  Pike up bike and go to somewhere on one of the canals, perhaps on the Prinsengracht the Anne Frankhaus.  Pick up clue to the DETOUR.

One task is to life some heavy furniture piece (tv set perhaps) from the street to the upper floor of a canal house using a bock and tackle arrangement. 

The second task is unknown (don't think it is to ride over to Amsterdam Nord)  And producers usually keep one detour task completely hidden.

Finishing detour task, teams ride bikes to the ferry across the harbor, Het IJ and then on to Werengouw and a particular apartment building complex.  Receive clue to proceed by bus to the suburb area of Durgerdam, find some sport club and partake of the ROADBLOCK.  One team member must use a pole to vault over and back a water filled ditch.

Completing the task , teams find a bike-cart which one member of the team pumps while the other team member rests in the cart holding their backpacks.

Teams must find a certain Marina, perhaps Marina Muiderzand, find Phil on the banks, and jump upon the mat.

The last team will be eliminated.  Bye-Bye Kate and Pat.

G-man--we identified the marina as being the Durgendam Marina.

And I think we all think the biking alone might be one of the the detours? But I'd like something more exciting myself so we'll see. You know--llike parallel parking next to a canal or something--can't tell you how many drivers end up IN the canals! :lol:

Oh I am SO proud of our team! :kissy:

We had BOTH detours! And the Roadblock! and the PITSTOP!

And Bus #30, and bakfiets (sp?), and the Apartment!

Only missed going to whatchamacallit bridge to get the clue which is no biggie.

:wtg:  Guys! :hfive:  GREAT JOB!!!

And major kudos to Chateau who NAILED the times for the Ireland mat arrivals--giving us the nearly exact departure times!
