They're running the race in Northern Hemisphere summer (hence, Southern Hemisphere winter), which would make legs south of the Equator (ie Australia, most of South America, southern Africa), highly unlikely. If they were to cross it, I don't think it would be for a giant leap (ie Oceania, South Africa).

That being said, I think they might go to Central America. It's been relatively unvisited plus they have TARLA racing down there to throw off any spoiler hounds like, say, us  :lol:

It seems they are headfing to the Congo.

You can't get there from Frankfurt, so I doubt it.

Probably eleven teams, since one boat appeared to have only one team on it.

I agree, considering the guy that said it is speculated now to be a hoax.

If I had to guess, I'd say either Denmark or Belgium. Both relatively close to Frankfurt and have never bene visited in the race's history. They could easily fly to Denmark or train/bus their way to Belgium from Frankfurt.

From Frankfurt there is plenty of connections to Congo. Not directly, but it is a huge airport with plenty of flights.

I am going to guess Denmark or Belgium.  They seem the obvious choices.  Brussels Airport has flights from London and Frankfurt.

Just read this in the tweets topic:

This is a good one: A 17ª temporada de "The Amazing Race" começou hoje a ser filmada em Boston. Será que é desta que voltam a Portugal?

Portuguese is like Spanish, so I'll take a knack. The guy's only asking if TAR may finally return to Portugal?  :groan:

That was my tweet! I'm sorry if I got anyone confused. Caelestor is right, I was only asking if TAR is finally returning to Portugal. :P

Never trust Wikipedia until it's semi-protected.

Just an observation:

This relatively early filming start now explains the equally relatively early renewal announcement for TAR 17 a couple of months back. Not to mention Phil's absence from The Early Show on the 10th.

This marks the first East Coast start since TAR 11, and the first start date that might have been affected by volcanic ash. :)

Surely the first one ended by now.  About a week ago, we were down to the F5.  It has to be over by now, right?

Would they do an overnight rest at/near Stonehenge?  Theres nothing much there to do except walking around and viewing the mysterious structure.

Gah, Sam, ya beat me to it! I'm going to google maps and see how long it says the trip should take, might give us a rough idea of validity, since Joey has no location listed on his twitter page.

ETA: Google maps says 18 minutes, and there was 16 minutes between tweets, so it is possible.

I'm not too sure about it. If I read back right, the flights arrived around 7am here which was 10 and a half hours ago, so either the teams he is with are really slow or there has been a small break somewhere.

Possibly a second or third group? But we should move this to spec about now.
