Adding in some more info about our Finale Leg.

Thanks to the great work of florida, teams were spotted in Miami!

 TAR 18 teams arrived in MIA from Sao Paulo 12-13-10 on flight AA930 at 9:36 AM  (Landed 121 min late)  

9 of the 11 teams were seen briefly at the airport.
 
Production was present.
 
Clues appeared to be handed to teams who then dispersed within the airport area. (decoy run?)

All teams were eventually seen heading to the taxis....

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:

Were they all taken around the same time, or were some of those teams from the Sao Paulo flight?

I believe all 11 teams arrived in Miami on AA 930 from Sao Paulo......according to Peach.

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.

The flight the teams arrived on AA930 was delayed about 2 hours. The "pilot illness" flight was AA990 and about a 10 hour delay. Seems like they had to wait for a pilot from one of the previous days flights have his required rest period, to replace the ill pilot.

No...that info was clarified to say 9 of the 11 teams in the post above..

But yes, all off the Sao Paulo flight as described.

I have no idea how relevant this is  :cmas5

"WHAT?! The next amazing race is all-stars & my friend saw the clue box... I COULD HAVE MET THEM, UGGG why didnt she tell me when she saw it" - 23 hours ago.

Followup on this:

Cluebox was seen 2 months ago in Canada so not us:

Oh that's so cool. Ok so my friend saw it about 2 months ago I would say it was at a winery in canada somewhere between Mississauga and st.Catharines she couldn't remember where exactly but it was closer to st. Cats that is what she told me at least...

2 months ago doesn't fit any timelines, AusTAR started in November.

If teams had a connection in HK from Sydney to Tokyo , they wouldn't fly from Tokyo to HK UNLESS the connection in HK went to Lijiang.

I have a feeling that this would be their Elimination Station for the eliminated racers.  It might be in Bali.

Sounds to me that it was ONLY on the Toyko to Hong Kong portion of the flight.......The poster was going to Bali and I would think, that if the TAR personal went to Bali, she would say that. It could be the teams going from Toyko to Lijiang or the Japanese eliminated team...Mel and Mike......at one point she talks in the singular and at another point, she talks in the plural.

So y'all missed me??  :kisses

Yes...TAR 18 is officially 100% done....

Someone has resolved their Unfinished Business while 10 other teams have twice the amount!! :lol:

There will be lots to talk about. But not tonight! :nitenite:

Being a 'not so newbie' here, i'm going to ask this: 10 other teams have twice the amount?? they have 2 million dollars? Is that true?
