Retrace the Steps of The Amazing Race Contest
« on: October 17, 2009, 10:18:12 PM »
Hey guys,

Since TAR15 is just starting, I thought it would be fun if we did something like this:

Take a picture of the previous route markers when you travel there.

It would be fun if we made a photo album by us RFFers.

When we try to trace down the racers, it's sometimes easy to forget part of the real reason why we are doing all this.

Anybody would like to do this? I would thank all of you guys if you participated in this! Sign up here:

User:

Destination:

Route Marker:

Shown Season:

Picture taken time:

And if would like it, we could add our own messages....ect.

After we have all our pictures, it will turn into a contest by public vote.

May the best/creative/accurate photo album win!

Note: Alliances could be made between users in different parts of the world to make a more complete photo album

I'll start it off:

User: :jerry:

Destination: Maui, Hawaii, USA

Route Marker(s): Huialoha Church, McGregor Point, Kaohu Farms-Surfboard.

Shown Season: Season 2 Season 14

Picture taken time: Mid November 2009

Deadline could be sometime in 2010!

Neobie really wins this hands down. He has visited at least more than 20 of the TAR locations and has his own photo album. It's just amazing and i'm so jealous. :lol:

Here are some Pit Stop/Start  pictures I've taken:


Schloss Hellbrun in Salzburg


Palais Montjuïc in Barcelona


Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

I've also been to Gmunden, Innsbruck and Munich but I didn't find the places where the Route Markers were.
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

Did you acually take these pictures?

Of course not. My pictures would have my and/or the wife's mugs in them, now wouldn't they? And I'm not daft enough to post them on an open forum.

Edit: sorry, just read Georgia's PM, I will delete the pics ASAP.

That's cause they are hotlinked, lol.

Jerry...can you delete them from your post too? But they are too pretty... I'll try to help re--upload them after TAR...

And I am jealous!

Will add my favorite later...

Hints:

-Crop out the Route Infos in the episodes of TAR (of course including the route info title on the bottom of the pic) and compare it with your own pic.

-Using PowerPoint or iMovie, make in into a document and put it on YouTube for better effect and quality

Rules:

-Please do not include any other pictures that are not self-taken! If these pics are posted, they are counted as entry pictures. If we find out, you will be disqualified.

Question:
Should I put this in the Fantasy Games section?

No leave it here Jerry, that way everyone can play.

Is this still a game? Or are we just sharing now? ???

And if you think I can do PowerPoint or iMovie, you have a much inflated opinion of my skills! :lol3:

So you only want self taken pics...sounds like we all better learn how to whiteout faces!  :lol:

    * Sydney Harbour Bridge
    * Harry's Cafe de Wheels
    * Sunshine Coast
    * UnderWater World


Sunshine Coast as in Brisbane?

:jerry:
Here is some information on the Australia Sunshine  Coast, which does not incldue Brisbane but is north of it. The Sunshine Coast is bordered by the Pacific Ocean in the east, and extends to the local government boundaries beyond the Blackall Range to the west. Occasionally, the towns of Gympie, which is 30 minutes' drive north of Noosa Heads, and Caboolture, 30 mins drive south of Caloundra, have been included in a broader definition of the Sunshine Coast region.

What is really important is what happened in AR4 Ep. 11 and 12. Jon and al were eliminated at the Moolalaba Yacht Club after a visit locally to Underwater World. Then it is Ferny Hill wool piles, the Brisbane Airport and flying 1,000 miles to Cairns near the top end of Queensland (Bribane is nnear the bottom).

Destination: Zürich, Switzerland

Route Marker: Detour

Shown Season: 3

Picture taken time: 1.46pm CET

I was visiting the Lindenhof park this summer and found this place by accident. I don't know how to add picture from my computer so I added it from my Panoramio account.
