I also hope for a start or finish some day in Texas, (or even a visit)
Houston is one the five biggest cities in the USA.
We also got Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin, all over a million.

Season 5's finish line was in Dallas :lol:

At least 2 U-turns a season (was 1 of them unaired last season?). Bring back the Blind U-Turn :hrt:. I wouldn't mind having only 2 Fast Forwards a season if it means there can be 2 U-Turns.

In a future race say like 25, how about having fan favorite previous racers
handing out clues or being with Phil on the Pit Stop.
It could reflect their skills, or some previous leg they had won.

Oops! I forgot about tar 5 finishing in Dallas/ Fort Worth.
Colin and Christie were from Texas also.
I think a special season could have previous season racers greeting current racers at each pit stop.
Just a thought.

I want a final roadblock in which that person must put magnets with names of countries on it onto a magnetic world map. When all countries are placed in the CORRECT spot, they will get their next clue.

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.
From there to here, and here to there,

I think most of us just create them for fun and don't have so much time to include transportation choices.

Not bad - but where did the race begin?  :duno:

Los Angeles? Great - lots of flights available, but in order to get to Busan and run a leg on the 31st in daylight  they would have to take a flight leaving LA around midnight/1 am on the 30th which means that would actually have to start on the 29th.

Not meaning to be critical - I just love to see details and well thought out routes that can actually be done in 23 days.
Pretend you're World Race Production's travel coordinator and actually have to book flights.
