Because the FE is notorious for having a small route. :P

I wish TAR would go back to doing more routes going eastward. Ive noticed that on average, the most exciting final 4's are in asia, due to the culture shock and lack of english. Asia makes things more stressful for the racers than it already is. I woudn't mind seeing westward routes, but I prefer seeing more of the classic TAR routes that generally went in an eastward direction. The last 3/4 seasons have been in westward routes  (:;). Also, I like it when eurpoe gets visited first  :).

Awesome Europe beginning, but I also got the same warning with the rural Algeria leg in one of my race routes. RURAL Algeria is dangerous, but if you stay in Algiers it might be better for TAR23 as it won't be that dangerous when than now.

Rural Mongolia can be considered an epic nomadic village themed leg :colors

I keep seeing these route wishlists on here - which is great - that's what the forum is for.

But it all seems so random and IMHO most of the routes posted are logistically impossible to complete in 23 days.

How about upping the ante around here?
When you post a route, also include transportation possibilities, like which flight or train they use to get from city to city. Make sure when you're planning you leave time for Phil to get ahead of the racers. And don't forget to give the racers and crew some time to sleep.
