I know we won't have any more live sightings, but I would like us to leave this topic only for ACTUAL SPOILERS. Thanks!

Yes and thanks!

Salzburg is a definite leg...will qualify the dates for now as sometime after the 5th. Waiting for hopeful confirmation.

Not sure if this in addition to a Swiss leg, or INSTEAD of?? ???

Salzburg is definite? I didn't see any spoilers for any place in Austria other than Vienna.

It's a little complicated. There is a sighting in Salzburg but it has not been confirmed and in fact is not of a team.
There's some conflicting info and Peach is trying to contact the sighter while still allowing them anonymity.

From this blog:
http://swamplandinflorida.blogspot.com/2010/12/can-blog-on-iphone-there-ap-for-that.html

Apparently 7 mile bridge was closed on Monday for filming the Amazing Race.
Not sure - but I think its a 7 mile bridge just outside of Marathon Fl that has been replaced by a new bridge.
The old bridge is used for walking now.

Do you think it was used for a task or for the finish line? Yes the old one is pedestrian only and the new one is a highway bridge. FYI this is quite a ways from Miami and Key Biscayne.
Great find, BTW!

Pigeon Key would be a great place to hide the Finish Line. There's a photo on Wikipedia which is taken from the vehicular 7-Mile Bridge, and you could fit the Finish Line behind that building, trees, and the ramp to the island.

Plus, the green lawn looks to be the right shade for TAR to use  :cmaslol

I don't know if this Tweet is relevant or if it has been mentioned but it is the only one that I found with a couple of searches:

@leighgermy re: people watching at the miami airport yesterday, did u notice 8 teams of two racing? looking 4 info on amazing race 18 4:45 PM Dec 15th via web in reply to leighgermy
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Well since you did not post the orginal sender of the tweet......I can only surmise that it was from someone from here asking if she saw the teams in the airport.

From her posting history....it appears she is on a cruise this week. If I was in MIA people watching, I would be one floor up in the main concourse...not on the lower level where people exit from Immigration/Customs.....its pretty barren and isolated there.

:O found this!! Hope it hasn't been posted! Its from Wednesday.

"Just met Cord and Jet from Amazing Race in MIA Airport awesome guys. Be jealous"

Considering all the season 18 teams were there, it sounds like they aren't in the final 3, or they wouldn't be talking to people IMO.

Seems like it.Sad,I wanted them to win :( Maybe someone can contact them and ask whether they
 seemed like they were racing?Maybe they spoke to the cowboys in a queue or something?

EDIT:I can't find that tweet.

That totally depends.  Since the teams were on an international flight into Miami, Jet-Cord might have been waiting for their camera crew and equipment to clear customs.  Or TPTB were holding all the teams until all camera crews cleared.

I saw the original post...it was at 1230 and just said people watching in the Miami airport...so doubtful that it was anything as our guys were much earlier.

This reflects weeks of valiant effort on the part of the team, so many thanks to Slowhatch, Neobie, Chateau, MamaT, caper and especially florida!! 

Slowhatch was the first to find the Miami area film permit way back on 11/24. Many of you all spotted it shortly before the race...thanks to all of you who helped keep that confidential until we were sure the racers were safely through the location!

That permit gave us Miami as a possible location, and was later confirmed secondarily.

 
Quote
Countywide, Marine Stadium Marina.


So here is the broad outline of what we know now:

 The first stop after the Miami airport was the marine stadium marina location, there only about 15-20minutes.



 SPEC is that this was a route info clue only.

They then continued south to Key Largo, which was the site of the next task:

 a RoadBlock.




Following that, they proceded south through the Keys to Big Pine Key for the next task.

walkingpneumonia's blog find re the Seven Mile Bridge closure would then follow nicely from there.


I am opening a thread for the finale location discussion...please take any further spec and discussion there. Live sightings/tweets/spoiler sources/blogs etc should still go here. :ty3:

Yes, they were all taken at the same time and off the Sao Paulo flight that was delayed the earliest.

To finally answer the post about the "pilot illness" (it was either in this thread or the other one), I unknowingly sat close to people associated with production and when a girl came over to introduce herself, my ears perked up because the customs area was pretty much empty. So I got out my crossword puzzle book and pretended to be busy while eavesdropping which is when one guy was mentioning a pilot being sick among other things.....so the super delayed flight was what "pilot illness" was referring to.
