If they ever do a leg in my hometown (Liverpool, UK), I'd love to see this as a route as I think it would properly show the city well...

(Wherever) to Liverpool, England, United Kingdom (John Lennon International Airport) (late night arrival)

Speke (Speke Hall) (RI Task involving supposed hauntings)

Allerton (Calderstones Park) (HoO) (Detour: Serve It Up (performed in Calderstones Park) or Tee It Off (performed in Allerton Park Golf Course)) (opportunity for U-Turn if desired due to distances between them)

Aigburth (Otterspool Promenade)

Liverpool (Echo Arena) (RB Beatles-themed)

Liverpool (Albert Dock) (RI Task nautically related to find the next pit stop)

Liverpool (Royal Liver Building) (PIT STOP)

Thoughts?

I know I may have 1 too many legs, but whatever. That would be my dream route...but I'm pretty sure everyone wants TAR to go to Antarctica. Omg. Sledding down a freakin mountain in antarctica.  :yess:


Twists: I got nothing. Ill try to think.


Teams: More family teams! I love father/daughter and brother/sister teams!


Tasks: Well sledding down an antarctican mountain of course! But the scarier the task the better for me. Lol, guess they are gonna have to do a space jump!  :lol3: just kidding. But the bungee swing in Nepal would be cool. Another luck determined task would be cool, except harder than the hay bails.
