From FB:
*Andrew Susanto I think I just saw 2 of the contestants for the next season of amazing race, they were wearing cowboy hats, running around trying to find taxi, with 2 cameramen following them!

peony:
*I saw what I think was an AR crew filming just now (noon PST) on California Street in San Francisco. Was nearly toppled by a man running with a handheld camera. He stopped at California and Larkin to capture the image of two men (I think) walking with a large locked trunk. They were walking towards Polk Street. May investigate further while I buy a pizza slice.

*** Follow up RE peach:
With BIG thanks to TrebledTimes at TWoP for this elaboration on his original sighting on 12/20 in San Fran: (He was linked to our photos for comparisons)

What I can say with 100% certainty was that it was noon PST at the corner of Larkin and California Streets. What I saw were two large guys wearing navy blue fleeces or jackets carrying what looked like a large locked trunk. I was across the street and they were facing the other direction. I'm not sure I could even hazard a guess based on those photos, although I would say with 90% certainty they were wearing navy blue. And the film crew were quite agro (they nearly knocked me over, which is why I noticed what they were doing) which leads me to believe it was actual footage they were after.



Plaidmoon2:
* jenbakerbrown: the two guys we saw were young and wearing cowboy hats. The officer at customs told me they were from Amazing Race

Chateau d if:

Louis and Michael captured by Chateau at SFO on 12/20, non race mode, traveling with production.

thanks to qwerty @ sucks taken on 12/19 -- sequestered team evidence



Macaroons:
I spoke to someone else in San Fran who saw the cowboys around the Great American Music Hall, which is on O'Farrell Street. They said they were very frantic and tried to get a cab but there was someone in it. They tried to get the people to give up the cab but they wouldn't so they ran to the next street over, Geary Street and caught a cab there.

I don't know if there was something at the Music Hall or if it was just the nearest landmark to describe where they were. Here is a map of it in comparison to Coit Tower. Notice that it is towards heading back in the direction of Hunter's Point, which would be further to the bottom right of what this map shows.

Remember Chateau and peach's "fieldtrip" to the finale locations, just 10 days after the finale itself?


--- Quote from: georgiapeach on December 31, 2009, 06:26:53 PM ---Chateau and I made a field trip yesterday to some of our projected Finale City locations. We pretty much hit all the sites at just about the same time teams would have been there as well. Some new info!!

Based on this tweet:

Our first stop was right here:



We managed to get DIRECT CONFIRMATION (two sources) that yes, TAR 16 was filming there on Sunday AM 12/20. Teams entered thru the main visitor parking lot, and apparently went directly to YODA. Storm Troopers were definitely involved as well. And best of all, GEORGE LUCAS and other key executives were there as well.[/size]
