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

After staying in two of the most luxurious resorts in Dubai, I would really believe they're staying in hostels for the remainder of the Race.  :lol:

 :lol:  I have a feeling the Dubai Minister of Tourism helped foot the bill for both Dubai legs.  Probably didn't cost WRP a dime for the hotels.   :res:

ashkip, aren't you running a leg ahead of the Racers in that scenario? (i.e., legs 5 and 6, not 6 and 7?
theschnauzers, when I had the chance to trace it back, I discovered that you were right. I had added a non-existent week to the start of AR15. I had subsequently corrected it.

We've got the obligatory dancing leg! Leg 6 gave me hope for a revitalized season, let's hope Europe seals the deal.

I still think this is the NEL.

This is the only one in the Groningen area:

The Simplon Youth Hostel

http://www.hostelz.com/hostel/15496-Simplon-Youth-Hostel

What about in Stockholm (specifically AF Chapman)? They used it as the Pit Stop/lodging in TAR 6, and with the "budget friendly" ideology that TPTB are trying to implement, I could see them re-using a Pit Stop/hostel.

re: NEL - It seems like the best bet here in order to raise suspense over the haybales ; Gronigen is F6 NEL, Stockholm is F6 elim, Tallinn is F5 elim, Prague 1 is a TBC or NEL, Prague 2 is F4 elim, and Vegas is the finale.

Actually he did not say "this time" he said at one time. He also mentioned using an amusement park barracks so that might be Sweden/Gruna Lund but thats off topic so I won't go there here.

Also, I am counting 5 Mercedes in this shot.

I hope that does not mean Ericka & Brian are last   :ascared


And here is a shot that has a team being filmed at the clue box.  This was when the helicopter was flying overhead.

I looks likes touch of blue for that team ???


This shot was taken between 8:14 am and 9:04 am (assumes July 30th).

I hope we see Phil riding a bike in his standup for the Detours, while wearing clogs of course :pedaler:
Anyway, I found a nice walking/ photo tour of Groningen here.

Spot and find the travelocity roaming gnome.

Nice photo album Puddin.

This shot contains the same view we get of Ericka & Brian looking at the bell tower.

Thanks Chateau, hoping to get lucky and find the Globetrotters confessional spot  :groan: :lol:

I dunno I can't see the gnome in the video but that doesn't mean there isn't one. In TAR13 did they have to bring the gnome to the pitstop in Auckland ? I can't recall.

Yes, they did. Even Ken and Tina got one.

Thanks Coutzy, if there is a gnome I suppose they could have left it in the car. So Tiffany and Maria are in 1st place? we see them  leaving then arriving back at the windmill right?  :yess:
Dutch did not see them, I believe he saw some of the teams headed to the dyke's where the detours were, he saw Sam/Dan then Meghan/Cheyne then the Globetrotters. We know at one point Ericka and Brian were behind, as pointed out by Chateau it looks like only 5 vehicles at the windmill and we see Ericka and Brian's Volendam still on the hangers so..and then with Ericka's breakdown at the Roadblock it fits.
Roadblock
windmill/ to detours >> Farmersgolf or Farmers dance (?)
pitstop somewhere Groningen per CBS map
NEL/Brian/Ericka << unless Maria and Tiffany really screwed up headed to the pitstop then this is what I'm thinking if the above scenario does not play out that way.

Here's my current understanding of the tasks:

Roadblock -> Climb tower, look for stuff. We see Ericka on her own up there, and she has binoculars.

Detours: Dance with accordion ladies - Ride bikes?

Does that sound right/plausible?

Thanks to Dutch, see page 1,  Farmersgolf is the other detour option, it looks like all teams must dress in the clothing and head to the dyke-- Munnekezijl on bikes where the detours are  (see the maps)

Ah, I see it now.

It just makes it much easier for me to comprehend if I've got it all in one post.


EDIT: Also, quotage!

I'm thinking Ericka while she's up the tower?
