Here's a question that I'm asking on behalf of the next crop of TAR racers.

Is there one thing that you wish you had carried with you on the race?

Has to be something that would pass WRP's inspection.
Granola bars?
Extra batteries for your flashlight?
An "I Love RFF" t-shirt?

From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Hey is Luke Adams here?? Can I ask you a few questions about the race?

1) What was in like when Phil told you you won Leg 1?
2) Were you tempted to give up in Russia with the Chekov roadblock?
3) Were you scared when your mom collapsed in Phuket?
4) What happened when Kisha/Jen pushed you in Guilin? Did you apologize afterward...?


Thanks

PS: I'm your biggest biggest fan... congratulations  :jumpy:

To any racer, was there a fear of running out of money on any particular leg? What did you have to do in order to make the money last for the leg?

Wow Andrew from TAR Season 13!! And Toni is here!!

Here question for Andrew:

Hi Andrew,

Is so interesting to see you and Dan in the race.. How was the Army Task? You 2 keep changing the task.. Is it very pressure to see teams left, and you 2 still stuck?





The army task was very frusturating all around. At first I struggled to wrap cloth around my feet which was required before we put the boots on. The cloth acted as a sock for the boots. Apparently Ken and Nick struggled with the cloth as well and I think the problem was that the cloth was simply too small for my feet (I am a size 12, larger than average). After switching tasks and realizing that the outfit was required for both detour tasks, I finally successfully wrapped the cloth around my foot however, the second time I grabbed a different piece of cloth and it happened to fit. Another frusturating thing I should note, my outfit was WAYYYYY too small for my body. I couldnt even zip up the pants and buttom them. Luckily, the jacket portion covered the waist as well as the large belt we were wearing. I could not understand how it was so undersized because production took every measurment of me that was possible. And if anything, I had lost weight since the measurements were taken. Dan's marching might have been the talk of the town that day but I wasn't off to a great start either.



Thanks Andrew!! You Rock!

Yah i saw the eppy where you will struggle with the boots..

I think the most memorable was Dan marching which make us laugh.. Oh and his Dancing.. Haha..

Oh one more qns, About the dancing speed bump, how long was is? And also which team you all were friends with after Race? And about the Electrical Pipe Line Detour in India, how long was you 2 and Kelly and Christy there? Seem like you 4 stuck there for long..

The dancing took about 10 minutes. I really enjoyed it, I knew it would be great TV. After the race I'd say most of the racers were friendly with me. Last summer after the race took place, I visited Terence, Sarah and Nick while I was in NYC. Dan and I very always pretty close with Nick, Starr, Ken, and Tina. I have also met up with Mark on a few occasions since we aren't too far apart geographically.

We worked on the wire detour in Delhi for about 90 minutes. We finished just ahead of K and C and we beat them to the mat by about 20 minutes. Tina saved our asses by telling us what to do because honestly, we just didn't see the small tags. It sure is frusturating to look back on it and realize that we couldn't see them after so many times pacing up and down that street.

I think we already discussed this, and they were watching them, but Dandrew didn't know that they were.

Yeah they were there. We saw them at various points in Russia and Kazakstan. We would exchange a friendly wave here and there. They were also on our flight from Moscow to Portland.

We always had shoes. We were never running without them so I'm sure what you're referring unless you're just joking around.

Dancing tips? From my experience, keep a rhythm and make 'em laugh.

Sort of. There was supposed to be a U-Turn in Ep 9 after the detour. It was there when we were there, but they removed it from the episode because nobody was U-Turned, not even us! The other teams could have undoubtedly and easily put us out of misery and U-Turned us. The remaining teams decided to pass on U-Turning us because, well, they liked us. We were never a threat to the other teams and we were more than friendly with them on and off the show. Sometimes being good guys became strategic as other teams just simply liked having us around.

Sorry, I was referring to the beginning of the Kazakhstan-Russia leg, the cow incident where you left your shoes in the art studio or something like that

Question for all racers:

TAR 15's Tiffany Michelle said, in an interview that georgiapeach posted, that there was a Labor day barbecue with other racers at Victor's house.

Any pictures and/or a re-cap to share with us?  Thanks.

I'm not a Racer but I have heard before that they fill out visa forms and what not for heaps of countries that they may or may not go to before the race. As for Passenger Entry Cards, you only have to tick a few boxes and sign  :lol:

Just to say yet again... regarding our current and past racers.... things seen or read on Facebook STAY on Facebook unless the racer gives particular permission otherwise. We have a close relationship with many of the racers, and that trust and friendship is NOT to be violated.

I'm watching AR14 on youtube... the Guilin leg, the teams landed in night, and it was daytime when they did their task... was there an overnight rest or an unaired task that we don't know about?

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

To the racers:

Thank you so much for being willing to share your experiences with fans of the show.

Do the clues tell you that you can leave your stuff sometimes and production will pick it up for you? This has been a point that has confused me through many seasons.  For example, DanDrew left their shoes and had to buy new ones, but then, like in Amsterdam this season, the racers left their stuff at the bike/golf thing and checked in without their bags.
