OIC thanks peach, I'll go with something else like the 36 hour pitstop with the crews maybe getting a day off in Split?

I'm looking for these place~ graffiti is big in the Uzupis area and ultrassa means dog I think fwiw. It looks like a park with a statue/monument I can't find.


and then we have a big sun/diffence in these two screencaps, again I can't find this place  :cmas5






After seeing these shots on a HD widescreen it looks to me as if in the first shot (shadow near the hedge) it is TK and Rachel as TK rips open the clue (cluebox not seen but must be near) Rachel is wearing redish top and gray sweats.

In second shot with her back to us it looks like a girl with red shorts.  Could this be Jenny who has screwed up again and is being comforted by Nathan (he has black tee on).  Or am I way off?

Second Q.  in the two shots is the shadow increasing in length away from the building and hedge, or is it decreasing getting nearer the hedge and building.

Looking at arrival times in Dubrovnik, and the flights they will need to make to get there.  I don't think that it can be Ron/Christina that late in the day.

unless it is a 36 hour pitstop (looking likely)

Puddin, it looks like we have two Roadblock-looking activities:

1)  Book delivery at Vilnius University (Ron and Nik shown solo running)
2)  Stilt walking at the rummi place (Ron on stilts, Christina on foot)

I guess if I had to choose I would pick the stilts as looking the most likely.

I think that the two DETOUR choices would be:

     MOUNT: --  Get up on stilts and walk the path, or

     COUNT: --   Count the number of fence posts.

For the first we have Ron and Christina, for the second we see the Blondes in front of a rustic fence and Jennifer is holding the Gnome.  Does this mean that they get the gnome after the fence counting or that they have won it or found it before the Detour?

Nicholas seems to be doing the ROADBLOCK.  Perhaps finding a number of books in the University Library. But the odd thing is that in the first shots of him in the courtyard he is carrying a basket which he no longer has later on.  Curious.

In the long sequence of Vidcaps puddin put together for us earlier in this thread, there are two shots of Nathan and Jennifer in a glass enclosed area.  I think that this is the glass covered escalator found in CDG going from arrivals area (from BF) to the departure area for flight to Vilnius.  There is another couple with backpack directly in front of them.  IT is bright daylight also.

I think you are right on target about the Detours/Roadblocks G-man.  Maybe he gets the book first and it is in the basket? Although that looks like a doll-baby basket to me! :lol:

And thanks for that re CDG--I kept wondering why they were in a greenhouse! :lol3:

I like those, a la Sydney Season 2.

I could just see Nat/Jen pulling a Wil/Blake

Ok, here is the distribution map for the CBS NFL games this Sunday. Remember, for much of the Eastern and Central Time Zones, there will be an early game.

But there is a significant portion in the East and Midwest that will get the Cleveland/Arizona game. The following areas face a potential delay in TAR:

Atlanta (sorry, Peach)
Western North Carolina
Portions of South Carolina
St. Louis including surrounding areas in Illinois
Minneapolis including most of Minnesota
Upper Wisconsin
Eastern North Dakota
Eastern Michigan
All of Ohio
Parts of Indiana
Parts of Kentucky
Most of West Virginia
Most of Pennsylvania including Pittsburgh and Philadelphia (sorry, puddin)
South Jersey

Ooh --that does look like it could be Nate! Push up sleeves and all. I'm just not seeing Ron there.

But he isn't on stilts--that happens at the Rumsiskes Museum--here they are in Vilnius. Maps and links for both locations are up now in MAPS!  :angel:

I'm onboard with the Nate theory, the "late" timing in the day would explain it.  Oh boy Jen is going maaaaaaaaaad at him.

Nat hugging Jenny in the courtyard with the long shadow - is he consoling her after she screwed up doing the ROADBLOCK and they now realize that they are running behind everyone else?

One team continues burning bridges and making enemies when they force a fellow Racer out of an airline ticket office, and another team is too busy butting heads to realize their car is on a collision course with a speeding bus.

Just speculation, but no one else had mentioned it as a possibility - could the burning bridges comment be relating to Ron and Christine? The blondes seem the obvious choice, but the wording of the sentence does make it seem like it is talking about another team. We know that Ron can be pretty outspoken, and he butted heads with Nic in an airport on an earlier leg, and the sisters seemed to have some issues with Christine also, so could they be quietly getting on the wrong side of people.

That's a good guess. We'll see if Ron has an outburst after falling from the stilts.

Have we finalized the timing?  Does the flight from BF to CDG and then on to Vilnius and the DETOUR and the ROADBLOCK and the race to the pit stop  and drive from here to there (playing dodgeball with local buses) all take place in one day?  Sun does not set until around 9:45PM so there is a lot of daylight to play with.  But it would be a looooonnnnnnggggg day.

I suppose whats bugging me the most is the fact that "we have a gnome!"! Would they really not have a pitstop? I mean lets say they are told to keep racing by Phil or are handed a clue that says keep racing --Do they have to lug the gnome around for 1 more leg?
Who recalls the gnome episodes? I only remember season 7, whats his face and Kelly won and it was a NEL but there was a pitstop, then season 9 but I don't remember who won the gnome prize but there was a pitstop "SANTA!" was there! and the mom & daughter were eliminated. So right there you have 2 pitstops involving the gnome.
