Question Bank: What to ask Racers at TARcon

Like Chateau says...we always forget!

So put all those nagging little questions here and I'll make a copy to take with us!

I have several for TARCON XIII:
1. Where and when were each extended pitstop?
2. What direction were teams given for the LAX to Salvador flights. They appeared limited to the choice of a route through Miami and Rio de Janeiro or through Chicago and Sao Paulo? Were teams probhibited from choosing better alternatives like through Miami and Sao Paulo that got in earlier? Were these decisions made by World Race Productions or by American Airlines?
3. Was there any break in the shooting shedule (more than just sleep time) to allow acclimiatiztion to the altitude in LaPaz?
4. There was a flight combination through Dubai (DEL DXB same as taken by Dan and Andrew) that got in to Almaty around 430pm? Did any teams try to book this?
5. What was in the mysterious package in leg 9, the first Moscow episode? Where and how did teams acquire it?

I'm sure I can do more questions after I give this more thought.

I've found  that the teams usually don't remember what exact flights they took, unless they kept a diary...

Did Nick get any gifts in his birthday?

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Arrival/departure times for Moscow 2.

How many attempts at the dancing Dandrew had to do (because I so do not believe that it took Dan only two tries).

First, a question for Ken and/or Tina.  At the last pit stop, was there an opportunity for Dan or Andrew to shout out the location of the clue box?  Tina saved their butts in India and it would have been nice if Dan or Andrew had returned the favor.

The next has to do with Kelly and Christy.  Over at Sucks, in the Sarah thread, Avant Tai  posted a vidcap at the Moscow speed bump that showed Kelly and Christy.  http://i37.tinypic.com/a0xa4p.jpg   For K and/or C, Was that cap from a rehearsal or from the actual speed bump task? How did they feel watching parts of the race after they had been eliminated?   I knew that the last few eliminated racers never made it to Sequesterville, but I had never heard that racers were able to view any part of the race once they had been eliminated.

Thank you.  Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

The teams in the final six all do the last few legs as decoys to throw off potential spoilers (which almost never works if you look at the spoilers section of the forum), so it makes sense for the girls to be around the production crew. HUGE mistake on the part of CBS though, I would have thought they would have been more careful than to let that shot of them out.

To all the Racers:

Do any of you have any anti-Asian sentiments? :funny:

To whom it may concern:

Which one of one was the odd-person out in terms of making it to the festivities before you got to 100%?

I kid as always (man I need an avatar).  Glad y'all could pull it off!  Looking forward to some of the responses from the questions above!

I was just wondering if these questions were answered during TARcon. If they were, can some one please post the answers. Thanks.
