Found an intriguing message on Twitter from qgchew who appears to be in Sheffield England.

There must be some treasure hunt/Amazing Race kinda thing going on outside. Lots on people running around aimlessly with backpacks & maps

Could be TAR, could be almost anything. I've tweeted back for more info, but I'll probably go to bed soon.

Update: I see Puddin is on it too and tweeted back before me. I hope I don't scare him off.
 :lol: :lol: This is how I earn the name "needs a life"  :-[

eta: well we tried

Quote
I'm in the UK. I doubt it's the Amazing Race. Too many contestants, around 80+ of them. Huge group!


I agree. False alarm.  :groan:  I really thought it sounded promising, but 80+ people? No way.

I think uycocoa is right, it's probably the Rat Race.  Here's another link for that: http://www.ratraceadventure.com/

Too bad. You could probably do an interesting detour or roadblock in the steel mills in Sheffield. I don't know if it's a scenic city other than that.

Ah well, the search continues...   :ele:  :ele:  :ele:

Yay. This is exciting. I hope the photos get posted soon. I really hope Jodah and Michelle are still around. If I could guess I would say it is:
1) The Poker chicks
2) The Harlem Boys
3) Michelle and Jodah
4) ???

As far as casting is concerned--> What kind of team would you want casted for the next season. Like what is your "dream team"?

After Tallinn, teams would either take the ferry to Helsinki, Finland for a full leg (unlike the 1/2 leg in TAR10) or fly to somewhere else in Europe or to North/West Africa.  I researched flights between Tallinn and two approiate cities in Africa on Lufthansa via Frankfurt. (both flights departing August 4, in Estonia)
-Possibility 1: to Algiers, Algeria (LH3179/LH4122) departs 6:50pm, arrives 12:00pm on August 5
-Possibility 2: to Accra, Ghana (LH3179/LH566) departs 6:50pm. arrives 3:25pm on August 5
-Other Possible legs after Tallinn: Czech Republic, Germany, Latvia, Russia, and Slovakia.

Here a list of Direct Flight from USA to Africa. So IF they go to Africa, they should most likely go here.

Delta Airlines and South African Airways fly direct to South Africa from New York, Washington DC and Atlanta (some via Dakar, Senegal). Delta also recently launched direct service from New York to Accra (Ghana) and Atlanta to Lagos (Nigeria).

EgyptAir flies direct to Cairo from New York
Royal Air Moroc flies direct to Casablanca from New York.
Ethiopian Airlines fly direct from Washington DC to Addis Ababa four times a week. You fly via Rome and briefly refuel, but you don't get off the plane.

With a single connection starting from Talinn, AR15 could go to any major city in Europe or Africa.

Here are the 24 flights (not counting to Stockholm or to Gothernburg since AR15 was previously in Sweden or to Vilnius since AR12 was there) in alphabetical order of the destination city which could be taken on Tuesday Aug. 4 out of Talinn:

Brussels        OV177 1815 1955
Copenhagen OV141 0640 0720
Copenhagen OV143 1255 1335
Copenhagen OV145 1810 1845
Dublin            OV201 2230 2350
Frankfurt       LH3179 1840 2010
Helsinki         AY3940 0615 0650
Helsinki         AY3922 0820 1850 
Helsinki         AY3926 1445 1520
Helsinki         AY3930 1755 1830
Helsinki         AY3932 2130 2205
London Gatwick OV101 1615 1715
Moscow         OV301  1325 1605
Oslo              OV137  1425 1505
Oslo              DY1067 2215 2255
Paris             OV171   0800 1010
Prague          OK879  1515 1625
Riga              BT364   0520 0615
Riga              BT312   1010 1105
Riga              BT366   0850 0845
Riga              BT312   1010 1105
Riga              BT314   1140 1235
Riga              BT316   1610 1705
Riga              BT362   2115 2210

Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Paris and Prague are all major airports with connections to other places in Europe as well as to Africa.

My personal hunch is that Copehagen will be visited for the first time in the leg following Talinn. Depending on whether there was a second leg in Dubai, that next leg will be either 9 or 10.

1 flight JNB to JFK SA code-shared by UA
1 flight JNB  to IAD SA code-shared by UA
2 flights CAI to JFK DL and EgyptAir code-shared by UA
1 flight originating from Johannesburg which stops in Dakar before continuing to IAD
0 flights from Casablanca to JFK (the one indicatd above must not fly on Fridays)

It could fit between UAE and Netherlands

Hate to break it to you!  Mauritius was visited on Season 10 on the 7th leg.  I really don't think the Amazing Race would return to a tiny African island country in the Indian Ocean, for the second time around.

No it wasn't, Amazing Race All-Stars was season 11.  Go to Google, type in Mauritius, Amazing Race and you should understand more clearly.  So ignore the Mauritius rumor, it's a fake Okay!

You are right about season 10 not 11. But you don't know that is a fake yet.  Let's not be so dogmatic in what we say here. :angel:

The reason I assumed its a fake is that the website lists July 27, but teams were still in Dubai on the 27th I think.  Plus teams were in the Netherlands on the 28th or 29th (can't remember which) and it would be impossible to fly from Dubai to Mauritius, on the July 27th and leave to Amsterdam the following day.

See, this is what I mean? It is SO important here that we not discount any leads until they can be proved false. That is why we all try to say I believe, I think, I wish...when we aren't sure. As it happens, it IS possible flight wise to make that route on that dates: there is a flight from Dubai at 0300 that arrives 925Am.

But yes, in this case, it probably didn't happen unless we were to discount Steffi's sighting on the 29th in Dubai.

I just like us to at least consider ALL of the options carefully before we discard them. At this point we do not know 100% that there was a second leg in Dubai, although it looks very convincing so far.

So I would just ask that we be a little less hasty, and kinder in our choice of words. "Hate to break it to you", "It's a fake, okay!", and "It is impossible" don't encourage speculation, which is what helps us all on our spoiler quests.
