I HAVE PREVIOUSLY POSTED A MAP OF kIRUNA TO NARVIK. THE LINE IS PRIMARILY FOR FREIGHT, SPECIFICALLY IRON ORE. iT IS SINGLE TRACK.
THE STATION NEAR THE BORDER  OF SWEDEN AND NORWAY ON THE SWEDISH SIDE IS VASSIJEURE.

Malmbanan, "the ore rail", is a railway line between Luleå, Sweden, and Narvik, Norway. The part of the line that is on Norwegian territory between Narvik and Riksgränsen is called Ofotbanen. The Swedish part of the line is the northernmost railway in Sweden and in the whole of the European Union.

The line is used by the mining company LKAB to transport their iron ore from the mines in Kiruna and Malmberget to the ports in Narvik and Luleå. The railway allows 8600 tonnes train weight and 30 tonnes axle weight. Both figures are higher than any other Scandinavian railway. In a voting about Sweden's most beautiful railway, organised by Banverket in 2006 among railway employees, the route between Torneträsk and the border won by a clear margin.

THE LIST OF STATIONS IS:

Hmm. Can't tell what that word is on the clue (Goabie?), but the tent sure looks like a Tentipi Safir. Not sure how "traditional" it is, but it's a nice tent.

I think it is called a Goahte:

Quote
Goahte was the most common dwelling place for the nomadic Sámi. It reminds of other nomadic peoples ”houses”. A kind of a tent, made of poles covered with blankets, which were easy to take down and put up during migration routes. It was open in the top so you could make a fire at the middle of the floor. My grandfather used to say ”anywhere you make your fire will be your home for the night”. He did not always have a goahte with him when he was herding the reindeer so he often slept under the open sky. But just by making a fire than you can feel like you are at home. The fire was the most important thing in the home, you could cook on it and it kept you warm. One of the goddesses lived under the campfire and you should give her some sacrifice after eating your meal. The place opposite the door was the kitchen. It was a holy place where the drum was kept and another of the goddesses lived.


Lots more about the Sami here...I learned a lot from this episode! Seems as though these  are who I always called the Laplanders...but apparently that is considered a somewhat derogatory term, and Sami is preferred. The people we see in the screencapscaps in the colorful costumes are Sami.

Welcome Home!! :hearts:

I think that could be very possible...and wonder if that is why two fairly strong teams could be at risk this week...

They might, but they might not.  As Georgiapeach said, that might explain why two fairly strong teams are at risk this week.

Probably nothing new but CBS just tweeted this video:

Now that could explain why both teams leave within the next 3 episodes.

It is new! And def shows our two most likely to go teams having difficulties...so maybe no U-turn after all?

Thanks Will! :jumpy:

Well, Nat & Kat went from almost-worst to first!  That's close enough.  But Connor & Jonathan went from first to last -- and out!

Okay guys...we have this now. The show is over for everyone now I believe?

Karlyn...spoiling the results of the show before it ends is a bannable offense... Please read the rules of posting during the show here:

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,23537.0.html

And note which thread is for posting during the show ONLY.

You are getting a pass only because some were delayed and others were not tonight.

How are things judged when some areas on eastern time in the US get the show on time, and other areas on east coast time don't?

And how would someone know at what point the delayed feeds on the east coast in the US are?

It's one thing when almost everyone on the east coast is being delayed by CBS at the same time; but it appears this week the feeds were going out to different US east coast markets at three different times. Even if you know you are in a delayed area of the US east or central time zones, you don't know if you are in the most delayed area, and that seems to have been the issue this week.

I was even confused as to posting or not and my area started on time this week.
