Question For any of the racers out there...

What did you have in your bags?

Do you get a suggested list from producers? ie Head Torch

Did you find you took stuff you did not use?

Would it make it easier to pack very light?

How did you manage to fit those bags in the overhead
lockers? I struggle with cabin luggage :)

What happens with snow/winter gear surely you don't
have to lug that from the start

In my pack I tried to carry as little as possible. I knew I could bring 4 different types of bottoms for both hot and cold weather and a some tank tops. I mostly wanted to makes sure we had stuff in layers and snacks that we could eat if we only had a chance to eat on a cab ride. There are things like a head lamp, compass, goggles, watches even all the way down to the type of back pack that we thoroughly researched to carefully put everything together.

We do not get a specific list from the producers. We get a vague list from them and the rest is up to you. I am not joking when I say this but the race starts as soon as you pick your partner.
 
I have learned this about being on the race. When you travel even in general there are a lot of things you pack that you don't even touch. So, I definitely learned that most of the time while traveling you wear the same thing A LOT! I don't know if that answers your question but I hope it helps

@Kaylani, how did you lose the passport? Good thing georgiapeach helped you find it back, or your team will be the team with the second shortest run in TAR history!

Welcome Kaylani!!

Just a quick question, what was the emotion when u have lost the passport and finally get it from the kind gentleman?

And what you personally think of the Hazard?

If you have not eliminated in the gorgeous world site in Indonesia, which leg do you think ur team will survived up to?

Last question are you still friends with the rest of the cast of season 19?

Thanks and good day!! :)

I have a question about what you are allowed to pack.

I know in some early seasons, CBS posted teams music playlists, meaning they were allowed iPods or mp3 players. Are these still allowed with the technology these things have today?

Also, what about logos and brands of shirts and hats? Do they prohibit certain brands or logos?

I've noticed this as well. I think they do prevent clothes with branded/copyrighted logos because they don't want to give free advertisement to random companies.

You think they'd let a racer wear a shirt that said "A prophet once told me to goto Georgia for the peaches"?  I'd get one made if I ever got on there ;)

Not a racer, but I wanna comment on this.
This season, the Chippendales wear shirts that say that they're affiliated with the company (not sure if those are shirts you can get from their store, if they have one).
Trey/Lexi are wearing Longhorns apparel, and production doesn't blur out the almighty longhorn emblem. :jam:
The Beekman boys sport shirts that say the name of their farm/company.

So I would say if the racers are directly affiliated with the logo/brand, then TPTB doesn't blur those things out?

Same could be said with the globetrotters in Season 15/18.
just dance

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

Logos have to be approved, and no large corporate logos are permitted. Affilitiated schools etc seem okay, dont know if TPTB get approval for those or not.

Caitlin and Brittany were wearing Nike shirts on the last leg.

I see Chips with the red ERKE brand singlets and blue nike brand shirts? I was thinking wow... that was obvious. It's like, they got a secret agreement with these companies to don on their tees and race!! Obviously not, but.. I thought they wouldn't be allowed?

Just like how every racer in season 14 had the same brand of coat when they were in Russia. It was either Columbia or North Face...I don't remember which.

I am going to speculate that World Race Productions provides all needed cold weather gear for all teams left in the race just for the duration of the cold weather part of their race. That type of clothing is bulky and would slow down every team if they had to carry it themselves.
