GE is too fuzzy to be able to see them.

The best spent effort will be scouring the 1000's of photos that are lurking around.

Maybe try doing searches using keywords in Romanian .

Yeah and everyone wants to photograph the castle, so it seems.

Do we think we have the dreaded clue in the haystack task? Or better yet, clue in the Capite task?  :yess::lol:

I have been trying to figure out which side of the detour would be worse on a groin pull.  Standing in one spot and lifting stuff in a wagon or walking around looking for coffins.

Perhaps this even allows for the teams to do at least ONE additional task in Salzburg.  It would be a shame to be in that lovely and culturally important city and not do anything.  Perhaps they have to find Mozart's birth house to get the next clue telling them to fly to Romania.

But Margie tells us they head straight to Bucharest   :'(

In this video, I get the impression that Tammy & Victor are contemplating changing Detours.

Do we have any idea how much distance is between the 2 Detour tasks?

The obvious choice for a pit stop would be Bran Castle.

That is my impression. I think they are looking for the task and are arguing which direction to go.

Isn't Bran castle the other detour? The one with coffins and all? Now I'm confused! Oh wait, that's the Black Church right?

I think that village looks very possible mwooden, great job!

To refresh my memory --from the spoiler summary:

Quote
Yay!! More dirt!! Thought the well had run dry on info from here in Romania, but just got this email from a friend here in Brasov:
"So I sat next to a guy at the wedding yesterday who is a cop in brasov and was assigned as a driver to some of the supporting crew for the amazing race when it came through. from bucharest they had to take the train to brasov, and they went to the black church where they found out their road block. i don't remember what the first one was but the second was something to do with a gypsy village. he didn't know what else they did in brasov but from brasov they went to bran and he said he didn't think they went to Bran Castle but they did have their pit stop. in all he said they spent about 3 days in romania and from here they went to russia."

I think the Pit Stop will be in the 'cone' indicated below.  This is based on GE tilt views.   This shot has a faint set of lines from the mountains at the point of the cone.  It is also consistent with the expected solar azimuth for late afternoon.

Do they mean Detour at the Black Church?  A Roadblock does not have 2 options, except for last week.

Spending a few minutes with Google Earth this afternoon, I have 2 thoughts.

1.  Most of the houses/buildings in the Bran Castle area are yellow.
2.  I found a place, about 2 miles west of Bran Castle, where they should have the PitStop.  The place is called Casa Elim!

I've been thinking all this time that somewhere like Bran would be a great Pitstop...

We still have a task there though right (coffins etc)? So maybe not...

Those haystacks look exactly like Cousin IT!!! Are we sure they don't have feet? :lol3:

And WOW!! Look how great Margie looks in her leotard!

Is that Amanda there?

I assume you're refering to that last shot?  It looks like Jodie to me.  I believe that's the only shot we've seen of that team for this leg.

I think you need to have all the clues with you in order to check in. So if the clues are in the bag, they can NOT check in.

:welcome2: to RFF, honeybee!

Thanks for the welcome, georgiapeach!

Kris is holding the detour clue while looking for the pack, so at least they have one clue.  Probably not much luck of them keeping the others somewhere else, though.  It'll be interesting to see if they find it; it will certainly break them if they don't, and could explain their possible early departure this season.  :(
