In my world, each 1 hour episode =  1 leg. CBS reports it as my first 2 legs as only 1; so be it. My system works for me and is completely simple and understandable. If others need a translation table, then that is the way it is.

The leg tonight is leg 7. We started October 5 with leg 4 and this is the fourth episode in October. If you want to follow the CBS system and call it leg 6, that's OK with me.

According to TheFutonCritic CBS schedule the leg tonight is leg 1706 so if "the leg tonight is leg 7" then we must be skipping Leg 6 or 1706?

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/showatch.aspx?id=amazing_race&view=listings


david Junior, you are correct and I left out leg 7. When adjusted for that, the scenario is:

1000 to 1100 - Brian/Ericka, Sam/Dan, Herb/Nate, Maria/Tiffany and Mika/Canaan finish leg 6; Cheyne/Meghan are 1 to 2 hrous ahead.

2200 to 2300 - the above groups are released for leg 7


0700 - probably start time for daylight tasks in leg 7

0800 - earliest time for pit stop for the group of 6

2000 - earliest time for release from pit stop for leg 8

Flights to Europe include KL428 DXB AMS 0005 0525 (actual arrival 0454 on JUly 30). All teams should have little trouble getting on this if seats were available.

I will go back and correct my earlier note when I get the opportunity.

I don't still get it?

And if you follow the CBS system..

What needed to be repeated from the TFC listings page is that the premiere was episodes 1501/1502, consistent with the leg numbers and the theory that CBS has to double up the first two episodes due to the conflict between the Emmys and the MTV Video Awards that would have occured on September 13th.

The episode and leg numbers are consistent this season. Now I haven't looked at what the greasemonkeys are doing at CBS.com, but that place is often the least accurate of them all.

Apskip, your system still makes no sense, because if you refer to the two hour premiere episode as just "Episode 1", you wouldn't call this "Leg/Episode 6", but would actually call it "Episode 5." There's no good reasoning I know of for calling it "Leg 7". The actual leg number is 6.

1. Episode 1/Legs 1 and 2
2. Episode 2/Leg 3
3. Episode 3/Leg 4
4. Episode 4/Leg 5
5. Episode 5/Leg 6 - tonight's episode.

New updates from Dutch Samedhi!!



I sent revised photos and videos of Meghan and Mika:
Quote
It is difficult to say whom I saw after such a long time, so it is a bit of an guess, but I would have to go for Meghan. It's also difficult to say because I saw them in Volendam clothes

Teams he for sure saw himself: no surprises, except Matt and gary he didn't see, apparently.

Quote
Meghan/Cheyne (dating) Probably


Brian/Ericka clip (husband/wife,she was Miss America 2004) For sure

Nate/Herb (Globetrotters) For sure

Dan/Sam (brothers) For sure

Tiffany/Maria (world poker champs, friends) For sure

Quote
I saw the first team at about 10 o'clock (before that they were in a village nearby) I was in the harbour and was at a distance of about 7 meters


I asked about the possibility of teams coming from Bremen instead of Schiphol>>
Quote
I heard people say (people who talked to them) that they came from Schiphol, but they could have misunderstood. When we in holland talk about the airport it's usually Schiphol.


I asked: I keep looking for info on the Zoutcamp dance group, but am unable to find anything. Do they have a website or any videos out there we could see?

No, these are all just old ladies

The Discovery commercial after the race was about Groningen
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

Just a thought...but remember how Phil said during his Ross Interview that the teams stayed in a Youth Hostel on the race this time?

This is the only one in the Groningen area:

The Simplon Youth Hostel

Strangely enough, Groningen is available in both bird's eye and street view (here).
