LIVE sightings go here!  :hearts:

If you are posting a tweet, please post the tweet, the tweet time, and LINK TO  the twitter user name.

Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it.

If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM or email puddin or me to ask before you post.

If you have a live sighting, help us as much as you can with WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what color they are wearing is helpful) WHAT are they doing, WHERE (as exactly as possible..street? airport gate? be specific!), WHEN (what time zone?, exact time), and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!

And even though we all get excited, please, once we have a possible location, take the discussion to the location thread and leave the Twitter zone free for incoming info! :ty3:

If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email either puddin or me, our emails are in our profiles. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM us once you have a minimum of 5 posts here.

Hang on guys...this matches one piece of info and directly conflicts with another, so not sure...

Can someone go see if there are any other tweets please??

Levels Audio did a mix session with Phil 8 hours ago...so I am doubting this Seattle tweet....

Mix session with Phil Keoghan of the Amazing Race.
about 8 hours ago via web

Also our best info suggests that the start is not yet...but always willing to be proven wrong!

I could use some help checking tweets please....

s7p    @peachrff they had on yellow jersey's that said Amazing Race on them. and a stack of cards with directions or clues maybe w/ the show logo.
12 minutes ago via web in reply to peachrff

Sounds like a local event?

What bothers me is the time...too late in the day for our guys, and our guys don't wear Amazing Race jerseys.

Also this is in direct conflict with some other info we have, so I am going to cautiously say...not us, unless we get more info.

But stay tuned, TAR17 is not far away, the next tweet could be us!

I think I might be able to shed some light on the Seattle tweet.

I don't know what to make of this?? This contradicts something we strongly believe to be true...so I don't think teams have left yet.

But bring it on....I will need more to be convinced....

hmmmmm.  If it isn't true, someone is working overtime to make us think it is Seattle. :lol:

It is more and more becoming likely that Seattle is the start line.

Not so fast guys, this is NOT confirmed.

La releve is a youth group, sounds like a youth group challenge to me.

Can't comment on the others yet, but we have something else that makes us question this...so until I see a pic, I am going to withhold judgement.

Station is a term for the leg stops, commonly used in school races in the Philippines and the Asian countries.

At Carleton University for the start of the La Releve training camp

Let's try to check the current location of the tweeter before we get excited.

Keep 'em coming guys!! We need them all to be able to sort out the wheat from the chaff?? (Is that the right quote?  :lol: )

But I truly think we are too soon, but will keep following up on Discovery Park> But an evening start would be pretty much unheard of...

However, if the Seattle-Vancouver rumors are true, this would be the first drive we have driving to a new city in the first leg. So an evening start could allow for the driving to be occurring at night with the actual tasks for the leg occurring on Day #2 (with a bunching point and specific departure times).
