  • Cookies with licorice, can't get better than this!
that doesnt sound gruelling at all

??? Well, if you really think about the first leg... hurrying to climb walls and stairs and then descending back down (tiring as heck) :(, 30 min. separation per ferry transport (teams must hurry if they want to catch their first TAR flight  :o... arriving in Casablanca at night to drive to a questionable rural town is quite confusing and frustrating without detailed maps  :tantrum... and then the Roadblock, it is very easy to suffer/attract cacti needle skin irritation without much light source (unless you're prepared and have flashlight hard hats) :ascared, and directing a mule... we all know how Ari & Staella and Nate & Jen felt when their mule wouldn't move, and at night... quite nightmare-ish. :stare

And when you get eliminated by a stupid mule or confusion of directions... :whoop:

Love the route <<<<3.

You won me over when you put Kerkyra and then Patra with ferries <<<<<<<<<<<<3.

And don't forget to go to the catacombs under the cricket ground.
Of course, it's one of the things Patra is well-known for. :tup:

A winter route with a twist.

START: Smithsonian Institute Building, Washington DC
Leg 1: USA to Kenya to Uganda (Nairobi, Jinja)
Leg 2: Uganda (Kampala)
Leg 3: Uganda to Jordan (Petra)
Leg 4: Jordan to Israel (Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea) (0 hr Pit Stop)
Leg 5: Israel (Tel Aviv (nighttime leg!  :keeta:)
Leg 6: Israel to Mauritius (swimsuit leg!  :conf:)
Leg 7: Mauritius to Malaysia (Kuching)
Leg 8: Malaysia to New Zealand (all around the North Island, ending up near Mount Ruapehu)
Leg 9: New Zealand to Easter Island (all around the island, again)
Leg 10: Easter Island to Argentina (Buenos Aires Province, ending up in Lobos)
Leg 11: Argentina (within Buenos Aires itself)
Leg 12: Argentina to USA (LA)
FINISH: Lake Hollywood Park, Hollywood, CA

In general the places chosen have either not been visited before (most) or else have hosted some terrible legs (Mauritius, Buenos Aires and the associated province, LA as a final destination). Plus, no Europe  :o

MEMORY FINAL LEG TASKS (with overused start/finish cities):
Flag ROADBLOCK in :conf:Chicago:conf:: Going into a 50 mph waxed wind machine with a bungee cord tied, team members must identify each visited countries' flags by their main color and color amounts. Grabbing a color palette flag placed centimeters away from the giant fan, they must return and place the palette by chronological order of how the race visited the countries. Once they have the country flag color palettes correct on all 8/9 correct countries, they will receive their next clue.
Song ADD. TASK in Los Angeles: At the recording studio, revitalized from season 10 in Ukraine, teams must create a rap about all the countries they have visited. If the sound artist approves the song, he will give teams the next clue in a form of a recording contract.
Ring toss ROADBLOCK in South Beach, Miami: At Lummus Park, team members had to toss rings :duh: onto an enlarged map inside a ring toss booth. The rings are numbered 1 - 12. Racers have to throw the rings onto the respectful pegs marking the main city or area the season has been from leg 1 to leg 12. If racers miss or it lands on the wrong peg, they have to START ALL OVER from the leg 1 ring. After getting all the rings on their proper stands, teams will receive their next clue.
