And now I've the Lonely Goatherd stuck in my head.  I think it means only one team gets U-Turned.  :neener:  Just kidding.  I've not thought about it much. 

It's possible, but I hope it's not true.

Does it have something to do with goats, Peach?

On the CBS homepage, i found a picture of Gary and Mallory. It looks like a speedbump to me, and it looks like some kind of a gas pump. Anybody recognize this location?

Nice find! It reminds me of those manual pumps from season 13 that Dandrew couldn't figure out. This one may not be manual though.

I am pretty sure Mallory is holding the Speed Bump clue in her hand in that picture.

Whether it be manual or not, I think Gary will figure it out, considering he was once a pilot... he should know about this stuff.

BTW, do you think it's the Weilenmann Garage behind them in the background?

I think the Mercedes dealership matches up with the odd off-set red circle on the CBS Liechtenstein map.

I think this logo matches what we see behind them?



In which case this may be where they are, even up on the hillside in the picture??




Vorarlbergerstrasse 220, Schaanwald,  9486, Liechtenstein


You GE guys will have to say if this is a match?

I thought Kaiser as well, Peach.  But then thought the building looked all wrong from top.  It's right near the border crossing/start line, though, which makes a lot more sense than a place in Schaan.  Also it does look like some construction crane looking things in that image of Gary/Mallory.

Also, I think the mopeds are a model of Velosolex.  They're a pretty old model, but classics in the industry... so that's interesting.

I noticed that the color the helmet of the rider, matches the color of the moped too.

more clues, please. <--- I do really love your clues Peach... I always try to solve it, but had no guts to really post what I think about it... I'm a cowboy fan that's why I'm getting more nervous everyday... I hope the cowboys will be safe this leg...  :'(

And this one's for you bystander...so you BETTER comment!! Even if it just to say has peach lost her mind??!!  :lol:

OH MY PEACH............... You had really lost your mind!
I have been viewing the video three times already... AND many things are going through my mind right now...

Does the video had something to do with the girl and goatherd??? <--- just one of the things going on my mind! hehe XD
_____________________________________________
I've been thinking about the promo where Gary went with Jet.... Is it possible that both of them helped each other to get the correct answer... It is seen in the video that Gary wants to go with Jet...
Jen w/ Justin ----> makes easier navigation
Gary w/ Jet ----> makes easier calculation

Vyxin ----> alone; as compared to JenJustin & GaryJet
FT ----> not seen on the video... but was alone also in the previous promos
ALONE ----> bad navigation and you only have yourself for the calculation, no one to confirm it with unlike the pairing of two teams

If Gary gets it right, then probably Jet will just follow Gary's calculation since he was sure he had a wrong turn... therefore most probably Gary and Jet finished this task at the same time... as it is true also for Justin and Jen...
_______________________________________________
The previous promos had Cord and the Globetrotters at the same place before the moped task(???)
It made me think they almost started the moped task the same time.... If Jet had the wrong turn, there's a possibility that FT had a wrong turn too or had it right... while Jet was making up for the wrong turn... Gary was able to catch up....
_______________________________________________
I don't know where I will put the placing of FT and Vyxsin....
The placement in the first task...
Zev & Justin / Kisha & Jen ---> Either would not U-turn each other as they paired up in navigating to find the location
----> Either of these two teams U-turned the cowboys (thinking that the cowboys were really U-turned; Zev and Justin most probably did it)
[Vyxin or FT probably places here unless they got lost or need to redo the task]
Gary & Mallory / Jet & Cord ---> Won't probably U-turn each other as they went together
----> If ever Jet & Cord arrived on the U-turn Mat before Gary & Mallory, I think they won't U-turn them, or vice-versa because They are Good american people... ( both teams I really think are good people... hehe)
[Vyxin or FT probably places here if they got lost or need to redo to calculate again]
________________________________________________
If Jet & Cord were U-turned... They might have finished the luggage task fast... and was hungry enough after that to eat all the cheese...
The team that gets eliminated could have really messed-up in the moped task....
________________________________________________
I do really hope so that it will not be the cowboys who will get eliminated...  :js:

Did I miss something? My cable company lists the finale as May 8th, but that makes only 11 episodes, not 12.

Lonely Goatherd= route info before leaving Salzburg?

The fact that Sound of Music was used has got me thinking it's a Von Trapp family-esque thing

Which obviously would be in Salzburg

Maybe something similar to the tea tasting in Kunming before heading to Kolkata?

Yes to kaiser, yes to crane looking things... Kaiser had those colors for their crane looking things also... XD

If I recall correctly, its a two hour finale with 2 legs. I remember reading something about a two hour finale, but I may be mistaken.

I can't help, but notice that as the episodes progresses... the more post we are having in each thread... I guess next episode will exceed the number of pages we have right now... More and more people are coming to RFF when the finale gets nearer... Everybody wants to make sure their bet will be on top three!

I hope these teams will not be eliminated in this leg...
Jet & Cord
Gary & Mallory
Kisha & Jen

Yep, it's a two-hour finale I think... two legs in 1 episode (???)
