16:57, would they really ride bikes at night along a river? I dunno? It could be just that, a scenic picture...... and I'm thinking now that the nail biter that Nathan speaks of comes down to TK & Rachel, Nathan & Jen :popcorn:

We now have Don and Nick at the train at 16:57.  But are they arriving somewhere or getting on the train?  We also have TK and Rachel entering the train, and a shot of Jenn on the train.  So it looks like all four teams have to take the train somewhere.  The question is where?  Where is the Jeep test track?

I think it was Survivor 1 kogs.... Somebody did some hot coals and I think it was the last group of Survivors in season 1. Not TAR...  I'm seeing Hatch--foreshadowing maybe?? :lol3:

I thought this might have been the elevator at Taipei 101 but I can't match the outside cross-rail, and I don't think it has an outside elevator anyway (trivia:world's fastest elevator).

 :jumpy: From newbie genie007 who is having problems posting.

journey of 100,000 rocks... Behind the Memorial Hall ( Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall )is this interesting stone trail which is meant to be walked on barefoot as a form of accupunctural therapy. According to some beliefs, you can access all the major organs and lines of energy in the body through the feet and putting pressure on certain points can bring health and correct illness. I have yet to try this trail myself, it looks...painful.

Taichung might be another possibility; the THSR site has virtual tours, and that's the closest platform match I've found.

Skyscraper City has some platform pictures, some pictures work some don't and are just red x's :angel:

Also thinking, journey of 100,000 rocks could be the speed bump? would suck to have it near the end of the leg  :ascared

Hey guys~~ I got some info on the jeep
I found a jeep show in Jiji township in Nantou County, which is in the middle of Taiwan

Jiji is a small township with a famous old train station, it take a bout 1.5 hours from High Speed Railway Taichung by train
and the show is just next to the train station
Google map http://maps.google.com.tw/maps?f=q&hl=zh-TW&geocode=&q=%E5%8D%97%E6%8A%95%E7%B8%A3%E9%9B%86%E9%9B%86%E9%8E%AE%E9%9B%86%E9%B9%BF%E8%B7%AF&sll=24.974305,121.527872&sspn=0.009162,0.018818&ie=UTF8&ll=23.826906,120.78794&spn=0.009245,0.018818&z=16&om=1

here's the website of the show http://www.ogsppg.com.tw/tour_data.asp?hidID=1556

Great job, Jason!  :jumpy:


Here's Ximending with the Partyworld in the background. Apparently the whole building is devoted to private karaoke booths.

Okay --I can't read a word! :lol:  What's it for? Is it like an amusement park ride?

DID all the pretty pictures disappear for everybody or just me? ???

As they were in Ximending at night, it probably means that they arrive at Taipei first then travel by train to the south in the afternoon and have to go back to Taipei later for the pit stop, right?
