Interactive map of Salisbury, England.

And even better, they marked off the Cathedral (possible RB location) and Old Sarum (possible Pit Stop). Amesbury (and Stonehenge), are a shortish ways north of Salisbury.

eta:

Basic map of the drivefrom London to Stonehenge. The tan shape almost directly under Stonehenge is Salisbury.

In case Korea pans out: Google streetview doesn't cover Korea; however, the local Daum does a decent job. No English interface I could find, so just a few simple directions (picture below). The left button is map view, the airplane icon is aerial view, the webcam button produces streetview. Click on it and drag the webcam to the spot you want to see. If the screen is blank, look back at the button; if it reads "off," click to enable. I couldn't find "boeson" station, but here's a view of Bosan train station.

I'm having trouble connecting to fjellborg.com, but I found some archived pages which list the address of the kennel as being directly across the lake from the Ice Hotel (and I recall one of the locals saying left>left): Poikkijärvi 1, 981 92 Kiruna, Sweden.

Thanks Slowhatch! I think that's their main lodge, the dog sleds look slightly north of the Ice Hotel, here:

this is not a MAPS observation, but since I did not see nay better place to put it, I am putting it here:

June 1, the day That AR17 was in Sweden, would have been a midnight sun period for Narvik and for the border at Riksgransen. It was less than 3 weeks from the summer solstice, longest day of the year and those locations are well above the Arctic Circle.

Really? From 3 months ago...

Some other "cool" facts about Kiruna:
Its above the Arctic circle, so on June 1 they have 24 hours of daylight.

3 flights from ARN to Kiruna on June 1:
NAS 3761 dep 10:25 arr 11:55
SK 1042 dep 11:07 arr 12:31
SK 1044 dep 13:25 arr 14:40

I don't have the actual arrival time for NAS 3761 - but it is interesting to note that it changed departure gates in ARN which could account for the teams running around the airport.
From there to here, and here to there,

Challenge for our intrepid mappers!

I'm trying to find map all our old Pit Stops to as precise a location as possible, but I'm having particular trouble with the Karen Village in TAR 2.6. I've found that the name of the village is Pang Daeng Nok Village, but nothing on it's location other than it being east of Chiang Dao. Help would be much appreciated!

It isn't going to be easy because of the spelling variants. Even the producers have their own version.

These two legs are quite the mess! Super large map to compound your headache!





Regarding Thailand: I found the neighbouring village of Pang Daeng Nai (99°02'06"E, 19°20'49"N) by comparing an ethnographic paper's sketch to Google Earth; and going by a rough map on another scholastic journal, I think I have the location (99°01'06"E, 19°20'58"N) of Pang Daeng Nok!

I actually tried to see if I could pick up a location by seeing where the other venues in that long-ago leg were, but Google didn't seem to agree on the spelling; I knew it wouldn't be easy because as I remember the episode, the road teams traveled on to that village was a dirt road. So if you managed to find it, that is excellent!
