wow thx neobie!

ok...its maybe a little too early to say this, but i think tammy and victor will do pretty well in the two legs in china, (if they make it, which will probaly happen) cause tammy speaks mandrian and victor somehow planned a trip to china all by himself or something...(its in their bio)

Cutie Cara! Jaime's the one with bad attitude and she's the nice goddess. <333

Detour options are probably taking a picture with the tiger or being stepped on by the elephant. It seems Cara/Jamie flaked out on the tiger one.

Take your picture with ESSO the Tiger. *rolls eyes*



Compared to Emily walking the Valley of Tigers, this is lame!

Notice how hot it is in Thailand as Phil has the dreaded armpit sweat stain.

Well, having suffered through a bout of heatstroke 20 years ago......what I felt then is about exactly what I saw Margie do. I was very very lucky. I only lost about 5 years of short term memory.

You have to be very careful after the first episode. How many NFL players have died on the second episode in training camp.......I can remember two I think

I had heatstroke in Taiwan when I was five. It's not a good feeling.

Oh my gosh! luckily, it looked as if she collapsed right at the finish and could get aid immediately.   :ascared

About that one armed guy and the tiger.... Not reassuring!  :lol:

Pitstop is Wat Thepnimit.

From Jamie's Phuket Blog



Margie fainting is scary.  :(

ETA: I guess Neobie knows that already. Sorry.  :-[

ETA again: So the "pulling your teammate" RB from Rama IX Park all the way to Wat Thepnimit must've been what happened. That's quite a distance!

Well, I just hope Margie only had the intermediate stage of heat prostration. If she trully had heatstroke, a competent doctor will end her race. You cannot recover in a 12 hour pit stop. It took me about a month to recover.

Nice find!  :tup: A kmz is included in the link you mentioned; Thepnimit is just down the street from Rama 9 park.

Next On The Amazing Race


Gorilla? Gorilla?? Gorilla??? (Thailand)

Teams take a walk on the wild side…or rather, the wild side walks on them.

One team finds itself at the mercy of a slow moving Thai shopkeeper:yess:

A first place team finds itself in the penalty box—and their victory in jeopardy hmmm

and in the extreme temperature of Thailand, one racer collapses from exhaustion.

 ;D  Found this Thailand blog with a reference to a "one-armed tiger trainer".   :ascared

here's an quote:

Today I woke up at 8:30 and ate at Don’s. I trained at 10 with matt. Morning training went great. Matt showed me some good clinch work. Afterwards I went back to the Zoo with Rhys. I watched all three shows this time, and watched him getting his picture taken with the tiger. I didn’t tell him the details and he flipped when the one-armed Tiger “trainer” pushed him to lay on the beast. It was great fun. I trained int he afternoon, and then made my way to Cheap Ass for dinner and bullshitting.
