One more thing to add:   How did they get to LAX?  What were they driving? 

I talked with staffers at the parking lot who said it was a bunch of these:  White Ford Explorers



Several teams including the Blondes  took a shuttle to Tom Bradley at about 7:55 pm.

This shot was taken at 9:09 pm



This shot was taken at 8:36 pm (first Team back to gate area)

Everyone, just like the start location...no info on the starting task should be posted until the teams arrive and the task is underway. You may re post the info then, okay?

And unfortunately that is a private group of photos, am waiting to see if we can share them.

We have to reign in a little bit, this has gotten so good on here that we know the coming tasks before the racers do!  :lol:

I would find it hilarious if some of the racers already knew about that unmentionable task because they saw it on RFF a few weeks ago.

I wasn't reading TAR 19 threads a few weeks ago, so I don't even know what that rumored task was, but I'll point out that the producers are able to change a task or a location on very short notice; in fact the samba task in Rio on the first leg of TAR 2 was a task that had to be moved at the very last minute.

I would not presume that whatever that rumor was would necessarily be what is done now. (Another example was the Camp Casey task location in Korea, while used in TAR 17 the original reports about it were seen in connection with the filming of TAR 15, IIRC.)

Let's try SPECULATING in the spec thread and using this for thread only for confirmed locations? That will be a help!

I am a new comer here~~
There are a group of people chasing the teams to Da-Jia Riverside park, and another group of people waiting at Da-Jia Riverside Park

According to them, teams went to 忠孝復興 MRT station by bus (5:40 a.m.)
And there are three teams just spot at 西門町 (Xi-Men Ting)  (7:20 a.m.)

We are still waiting for further information.

There is a dragon boat task at Da-Jia Riverside Park for sure !!

:welcome: to RFF, truereality!

Can someone explain why they went to Zhongxiao Fuxing Station?

Or maybe they took a bus to Zhongxiao Fuxing and then the metro to Ximen?
That doesn't even make sense.

So teams took a bus from Taiwan Tayouan Airport to Zhongxiao Fuxing Station
Where they took the train to Ximending - the Shibuya of Taipei (quite amazing!)
And are now on their way to Dajia Riverside Park (about 40mins away) where a dragon boat task is being set up...

Are photos being taken, truereality? Well done, by the way!!!

No, that idea of mine makes no sense now that I looked at the metro map. There is no point in going there to catch a metro to the Ximending.

Here you can see the station for Ximen and the direction of the airport as well as the other station he mentioned. Maybe someone is lost?

Teams are doing what they believe is best, on first arriving in Taipei, without the use of a computer etc.

I'd bet Ximending is the first stop, followed by Dajia Riverside Park - for a Detour possibly??

MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station is the terminal station of the bus from airport to Taipei city.
I think that is why teams go to Zhongxiao Fuxing Station before Ximenting.

Well if that is the only way the airport shuttle works then it makes sense. Thanks for the help! We will look forward to more goodies!

Thanks!!

Here is a quick update:

refer to the first few posts of this thread.... for the full original info on this task.

Teams scheduled to go to Taipei, one task scheduled to be Dragon Boats with one team member the Drummer and one the helmsman  (my dragon boat friends tell me that the helmsman position is NOT easy).

Location>as per the MaP in Dajia Riverside Park.

Things we may see today: (from the practice run yesterday) NOT from today:

According to PTT,
First team just arrive at dragon boat task !! (around 9:00 a.m.)

It seems teams get stuck in the traffic jam, or there is still another location before the dragon boat

The drummer is going to keep the time for the rowers. If he messes up they are probably instructed to follow whatever beat he gives them. And the helmsman controls all the steering and directions of the boat.
