Welcome, Nick!  Looking forward to "comparing notes"!
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

Ha! YES! I finally have found it! HaMerotz LaMillion's starting line!

(Picture of it in case you don't know or remember)


That is clearly not Ben-Gurion Airport as Wikipedia most incorrectly states. No, it is actually this place, Avenue/Avenue Hall/Avenue Convention Center/Avenue L (I don't know what it's actually called since there isn't much info on the place online in English) in "Airport City", which is about 3 miles east southeast of the airport.

I've placed my point at 3159'9.82"N  3454'56.66"E. Time to find the finish line.

O:

Nice find! Everyone thought it was BG Airport because Raz introduces himself and says "This is BG Airport", and teams are basically shown walking through a door directly to the departure gates.

Cool! I'll update...well, ALL the things I guess. lol.

Finally, after a brief 2-and-a-half months, I've finished Race 8.  Sorry, had a number of disruptions lately!  The big post on page 3 is updated with the links.

One thing I've began to notice with this race is leg departures that were significantly displaced from the previous pitstop without any acknowlegement of such, specifically in Panama.  So I've began to make note of them.

I hope to get Race 9 done by the end of the year, if the holidays don't interfere too much.
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

At long last, with the help of sveped, I have finally completed my KMZ of TAR Norge 2. Thanks for the hard work, bud!

Note: I basically guessed for the Iguazu Falls, Argentina locations, as I couldn't find any of the places they went to. If anyone would like to help clean those up, please feel free to lend a hand!!

KMZ for The Amazing Race Vietnam 2014 added, so that you DON'T have to watch it.

See it on Page 2.

Great going, GB!

I'm trying to fill in a couple of the gaps - can anyone figure out where is the "gypsy camp" in Romania in TAR 14?

ETA: Should have looked five minutes longer! It's here! (Got thrown off by the different colour paint. It's been 6 years already!)

Hey guys,

I am having absolutely no luck in locating the Casbah d'If. Where is it??

With help from OvalOrange and Slowhatch, here're the locations from the two Moroccan legs! (The only thing missing is the teaware shop, which doesn't seem to be the El Bahja Souk.)

Sure about the pottery! It's "15km in the direction of Tameslouht," and matches up with several visuals, including http://this one Slowhatch found.

Working backwards for the earlier seasons: can anyone figure out the kiwi farm in TAR 13.4? There are crates in the background that say Trevelyan's but I can't find the roads they're on, even with Street View!

(Note: No lane markings, power line on left]

Can any super-awesome detective figure out which building in Jaipur this is?
