So do you  think the 2 pair of racers spotted are legit and were racing for #2 and #3 spot?

I think the decoys were running around downtown and the real final 3 were at Cascade Locks, it makes the most sense...as in the decoys were a distraction.

How about this for a wild hypothesis:

Could there have been only a Final 2?  This would have meant one more elimination point and only one TBC/non-elim.

In thinking about that TBC, I have been fixated on a REST DAY on the western side of the Pacific and I identified Auckland as where it was. However, if the 20 hour stop in Auckland was actually tasks, the only way that could happen would be if it were a TBC; there would not have been time for tasks and a pit stop.

By the way, it looks to me that the numbering 13-1111 confirms the fact that there were 11 episodes in AR13.

I have never posted before but have loved TAR since season 1.

Just talked with a co-worker whose husband was hiking in the Columbia Gorge at about 2:30 pm and saw racing teams, vehicles and a helicopter in the vicinity of Bridge of the Gods. He wasn't sure what it was until she called him about the Portland rumor. Could it be the race?

I work in Cascade Locks, and there is a zip line in place right now from the Bridge of the Gods to Thunder Island.  I don't know when they put it up, but it sure wasn't there yesterday!   :yess:  I got there in time to see the camera crews packing up and loading equipment into vans, but a fellow teacher saw two couples ride the zip line down to the island.  This was between 2:30-3:30 this afternoon.  There were helicopters circling the site, three camera crews at and around the bridge, and they apparently paid the owners of the Charburger restaurant to close for the day so they could secure the parking lot which overlooks the river and the zip line.  There were six yellow cabs at the parking lot where the access to the island is, along with more camera crews, and the officer that I talked to said they always stage it so that people don't know for sure how many couples are left.  Does that sound reasonable?
The other teacher talked to one of the cab drivers, who said he picked up two people at the airport from an overseas flight, took them to Newberg where they "ran around and looked for a clue", then drove them to Cascade Locks.  For some reason someone asked him if this was Fear Factor, but he said it was more like a scavenger hunt.  Apparently he has not actually seen Amazing Race himself, so didn't know anything about the usual process.

My speculation is Timberline Lodge for the finish?


Hi Stacy,

I saw TAR teams today as well at PDX.  I drive the international buses at PDX but not today.  However, I was driving the terminal parking lot  buses today and saw a camera man /sound man  running after a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit, backpack  and one of those TAR  clue cards (?)  in her hand just about the time  the Germany  flight  would have landed. They were getting a taxi here at PDX.  I had to keep  my  eyes on my driving  but a person in the bus said they were from The Amazing Race.

My  next  loop  around (20 minutes later),  I arrived  at the terminal  and  saw  more teams grabbing a taxi.  Fortunately  I was driving the Employee lot bus  and one of the supervisors  (who  got  on  camera & had to sign a TAR release  for TV)   confirmed that the teams  in fact were from TAR and got off the Lufthansa  flight from Germany to Portland OR.    They were headed  up to Washington state.  He also said there were only  4 teams and perhaps  the other two teams  went up via  Seattle first -  but that of course is purely  speculation.

adding this from spoilers to go with the above .......

It looks like it would be a good spot for a task:  Toll House Park


Thunder Island


And Rastaurant


Newberg is not that far from Portland.... but it's in the opposite direction from the Columbia Gorge (and airport).  hmmmmm......  :angel:

If the Dubai sighting is correct this could mean two things... They may end up going to another location in the UAE like Sharjah or Abu Dahbi (possibly by car). Otherwise Dubai us a large hub for Emirates airlines.

The only other "safe" Middle East destinations that don't have heavy visa restrictions are Qatar, Bahrain, and possibly Jordan.

I doubt that Colombo would be a destination as there has been recent violence. But there may be a chance of the Seychelles which is close to Sri Lanka and also easy to get to from Dubai.

Europe was done in TAR12 so most likely they will only be one or two desinations this time around. Emirates does fly to several African nations too but the only one they really havent done yet is Uganda.

Don't rule out Kazakhstan too! There is a growing number of tourists to the nation, thanks to Borat!! Also looks really nice despite the jokes.

I agree with Rich, there were some clashes there, or maybe they just passed by from Colombo to another country, im just guessing bcoz if u're live in Indonesia u'll pass through Sri Lanka if u wanna go to middle eastern countries (such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan etc)

I have doubts about this Sri Lanka stuff. They rarely re-use small countries like that on TAR.

Oh password, ALL of that is speculation only...not confirmed info. It is places we are talking about as possibilities only, not any "for sures".  That's us here making guesses.

Sorry... :'(

Mrs Shrek sent me this ........
Then I was searching Flickr and saw this ......(Taken on May 20, 2008 at 12.49pm PDT)
The Flickr picture and blog dates are a match but gosh it can't be us!
So a fwiw ...


I don't know where to put this. It can't be "our race" because the dates are wrong, and Bangkok was just a transit point. Could TAR Asia have started filming yet?

Strange indeed...dates cannot be TAR 13 but I suppose any local crews hired could have similar equiptment.

Is it possible that TARA 3 has started already? I wasn't thinking til June but oh my...

Have asked for more info :angel:

Just found another TAR reference in a blog that is so vague I probably wouldn't have bothered posting it except for the recent sighting in Bangkok...fwiw

So, with the knowledge that a) there are three legs in South America, and b) there are 9 numbers for the FF in New Zealand (leg 4)
and under the assumption that there are 11 teams as usual, then there must be an NEL in South America, otherwise there would only be 8 teams (and 8 numbers needed) in Auckland. Perhaps they pull a TARAsia and have the first leg be an NEL?
