*I just received an IM from a co-worker asking me when the next TAR is going to be on.
*"yup, at least part of it was in alaska. 2 of the people who did tours my parents went on this past week particpated in part of it up there.
one was a guide up a glacier or something like that and one drove a boat up a river that was use."
*"girdwood was the city. she couldn't remember the name of the glacier."
*At first I took that to mean that alaska was on their way to the final destination. But I asked her if she meant that Alaska is
Possibly the final destination. **She said:
"i think so, she said she only remembers him mentioning 3 boats (not sure if it was 3 boats besides his or including his)."peach
*We know that the leg was filmed on July 29, 2007
. (And since we also know
that the race was completed no later than August 3 and probably a day or so earlier, that makes this one of the last possible legs.)
*The leg was filmed in the Chugach National Forest
on the Twenty Mile River and on the Twenty Mile River Glacier.
*Teams travelled on the Twenty Mile River in boats provided by Glacier Jet, starting at Glacier Jets' launch site
(eyewitness source). See a sample river tour video HERE
(thanks Slowhatch for the links!). Sample River photos here
*They did an ice climb on the Twenty Mile River Glacier with technical support provided by The Ascending Path
