hey everyone. Im back to bad I haven't been around lately. But this is what I gathered from reading so far.

Roadblock: Reppel Down Bridge
Racers: Brooke, Thomas, Kevin, Gary (Rest uncertain Assuming: Chad, Rachel, Nick), Kat (Skip to FF)

FF: Kat & Nat

Detour
Bike: Brooke & Claire, Katie & Rachel, Jill & Thomas

Option 2: Not Sure

This is just interesting though in one of the caps. It looks like Jill is saying 3rd place or is giving the okay. can someone help.

Claire's doing the Roadblock, not Brook.

Wiki can be edited by anyone anytime...which is its major problem. :groan:

We get this all the time, it is usually garbage.

Thanks, Polarbear. :tup: I had been browsing around the pages but couldn't make the connection to Vidrek. (here and here). It's on the other side of the bridge from Narvik.

I second your thanks to Polarbear. I was looking all over for some sort of museum or tourist site that matched the rustic indoor scene and couldn't find it. Good work!



You're welcome! I guess it was kind of easier for me, since I study just 4 hours, by car, from Narvik, and of course speak norwegian.

Looking forward to this episode :)

Rappelling and climbing challenges are like a must in TAR IMO
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Episode won't be shown for 3 more hours PLUS whatever football delay we have.

Don't worry!  It's not true!  I kind of figured as much even before I saw the episode, but now I can confirm that the results are bogus!

Not having much luck with Harvika. There's a Hakvika nearby, but the topography doesn't match. The closest Harvika I could find is way on the other side of the airport. Wherever it is, there's a bridge in the background.

Production seems to have spotty luck with these route info cards. At Narvik and at places like Isla Margarita in Chile, the weather doesn't want to cooperate (the scenic view is the only reason the clueboxes were planted there).
