Weather wise Nepal makes more sense in November than June.
June to September is considered monsoon season. Wouldn't want to be anywhere that's susceptible to mud slides during monsoon. Which would pretty well rule out anything outside Kathmandu or the valley.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Question:
What is the status of Madrid?  I remember it being mentioned in some posts, including a possible sighting, but I'm not sure what happened to it.  Is it just a connection point? Or a debunked rumor? or what?

I'm slightly confused on the matter...

A possible connection or a rumor, I'd go with the latter.

Aww. Nepal. :( It might be Phil's teaser country. But since Taiwan <3, Indonesia <3, Thailand <3, Malawi <3, Belgium <3, Denmark <3, Panama <3, Atlanta <33, it is still AWESOME! :hearts:

It wouldn't necessarily have been an event big enough to hit the newswires to cause the rerouting. It could have been something as maddenngly simple as a bureaucrat on a power trip revoking filming visas at the last minute.

"in one day the whole world turned upside down in the place that we were at"

Could also suggest that they made it to their planned destination, and then they had to scrub their original RB and Detour in favor of their back-up plan because of extremely localized disruptions/problems, rather than having to go as far as to travel to a back-up destination.

I just put up the official press release in the Media thread. One thing I noticed was it says teams will be riding elephants in the rainforests of Thailand. I don't think there are any rainforests around Phuket. Maybe this could clue us towards the second Thai leg?

Lots of elephants up around Chiang Mai...and since TARA used it, it would be an easy fill in spot as well.

Not exactly....

for one thing, Nepal is PURE spec. At the moment we have no proof that that was ever intended.

 Okay. That mystery destination is either a double leg in Denmark or Belgium. By bet is on Denmark.

So 7 countries according to a source which I read yesterday but can't find.  :groan:

Taiwan
Indonesia
Thailand
Malawi
Belgium
Denmark
Panama

I'm not under the impression that can be said to be the final list; there are some assumptions in there because it's still likely we have 12 legs (or their equivalents) as has been the case in every recent season and with only 7 countries listed there would have to be five countries with double legs (or the equivalents).

I think I maybe might have interpreted the 7 wrong. Maybe it was written as seven countries confirmed to be visited etc..

Well, we know there's one in Indonesia. Another leg in Malawi or somewhere near in Africa? There is always the possibility for a double in Denmark, Belgium, or both. What are the odds of a missing European country? Seems like they usually visit more than that.

I would include Germany as a good possibility for some activities as the race may have gone by land form Denmark to Belgium:   :waves:
