Here's an updated version of a horrid concept route I did earlier. Tweeked it a little to make it so-called "better". :res: "Third time's the charm [I hope]" Gallory praise! :)

STARTING LINE: Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
STARTING FLIGHT CHOICES: Only 3 teams are allowed on an American Eagle flight from Miami to Freeport while the 7 others must drive a longer distance to Fort Lauderdale to catch a flight on either Bahamasair or SkyBahamas (3 teams allowed on Bahamasair & last 4 on a more timely SkyBahamas flight)
Leg 1 (United States --> The Bahamas) / Florida to Freeport
• Arriving in Freeport, teams self-drive to August Cay to begin cay-themed & Taíno-related tasks traveling from August Cay to Long Cay via different methods of transport.
Leg 2 (The Bahamas --> Cuba) / to Havana via Nassau
• After ferry transport back to Freeport, teams fly to Havana and self-drive semi-broken vintage cars to their clued destinations. Mural painting is featured as a Roadblock near the Plaza de la República.
Leg 3 (Cuba --> Colombia) / to Bogotá
• Teams fly to Bogotá and drive to cultural sites including the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá to find a "sacred" worshipper for their next clue. Detour in rural Colombia and Pit Stop at Villa de Leyva.
Leg 4 (Colombia --> Spain) / to Madrid
• After going to the Gold Museum to find Muisca's raft, teams fly to Madrid to complete Spanish cultured tasks. This leg will also feature a tapas eating Fast Forward at a Spanish buffet.
Leg 5 (Spain) / to where the train takes teams :lol3:
• Teams must pay respect to the Atocha station memorial by placing a wreath near the statue before buying tickets on a train to Córdoba where they then have to drive to the outskirts of Valsequillo to begin a conquistador-themed leg. Pit Stop at Castillo de Medellin.
Leg 6 (Spain --> Bulgaria) / to Sofia
• Teams drive 2 hours to Seville (San Pablo) Airport and fly to Sofia. Teams will complete a fire dancing ritual at the Rila Monastery at night.
Leg 7 (Bulgaria --> Turkey) / to Cappadocia region
• Via Istanbul, teams will sign up for one of two buses to Kayseri for a Cappadocian Era-style leg. Detour includes hot air balloons near the Fairy Chimneys or rappelling down a Turkish gorge. Pit Stop inside Derinkuyu Underground Tunnels.
Leg 8 (Turkey --> Tajikistan) / to Dushanbe
Leg 9 (Tajikistan --> India) / to Delhi
Leg 10 (India --> Malaysia) / to Kuala Lumpur and forested parks
Leg 11 (Malaysia) / train to Ipoh
Leg 12 (Malaysia --> United States) / to KAUA'I, HAWAII :cheer:

I was just thinking the other day it might be a fun idea if there was a team of nudists. Imagine how that would go down, lol...

I also have a list of 10 places I'd like to see on the race:
1. Canadian Maritimes or Newfoundland
2. Any country in the Caribbean (Saint Lucia, Barbados, Antigua, etc...)
3. GREENLAND
4. Wales or Northern Ireland
5. Andorra
6. Slovakia
7. Somewhere new in Russia (Kaliningrad, or somewhere new in Siberia, such as the far east)
8. Maldives
9. Tasmania
10. ANY country in Oceania other than Australia or New Zealand. (Fiji, Vanuatu, Kiribati, etc...)

I always thought of a Race completely bypassing the Atlantic and the Lower 48 by starting and ending in Alaska and Hawaii and traveling to Oceania > South Asia > Africa > Europe then looping back to North Asia.

If anyone here has seen "Expedition Impossible", you'd know they had a Blind Contestant compete, and he made it to second place.

Do you think it would be feasible to have a blind contestant on TAR? (With a seeing partner, of course)

I dont think that would work, considering pretty much every task requires eyesight.

the other partner is forced to complete it. For example in amazing race 14 luke wanted to complete the paragliding roadblock.. but it said NOTE: PARTICIPANTS MUST BE ABLE TO HEAR INSTRUCTIONS.. so margie had to to do it... i feel like something like this would happen as well

Well.. I've never seen any Roadblock that didn't require ability to see... :res: :res: Or, am I wrong?

Maybe the task that is possible is eating task. ;)

On the comment on blind contestants I'm half blind and am unable to drive because of it so if I was on the race my partner would need to do the driving.

Scott & Chuck and Ari & Staella pissed me off in season 7 and 12. I didn't like their perdonalities, but it would be great for funny TV. I think Diedre & Hillary should return replacing Rob & Sheila.

Well, they weren't fast... at all... in any of the tasks in Brazil, but they would make a unique returning team. They may have learned from their TAR13 experience.
