theschnauzers,

There are in fact 3 borders that are worth thinking about. West of Cafayete is the border with Chile. North and east is the border with Paraguay. There are 9 border crossings, all involving the Rio de La Plata or the Uruguay River, between Uruguay and Paraguay. However, there are no majestic mountains or plateaus anywhere near any of the Uruguay crossings. Majestic mountains will only be available near Chile or near Paraguay.

I admit that having CBS list Episode 2 as Buenos Aires indicates that that is where the next episode is. We have heard about an infamous 18 hour bus ride (I have thought prior to today that it was for sure Salta to Buenos Aires).

However, how do you explain the separate photos of 2 males that are somewhere in the pile of information available on AR20? I would truly like to know.

The "run for the border" stuff may be just CBS hot air. It looks like the donkey run is at Quebrada de Cafayate (also called Quebrada de las conchas) north of town on the road to Salta (photo source; click the second photo to enlarge). I also found a map of the area (again, click the second photo): it seems they'll pass through Santa Barbara again.

CBS has released a new clip for Episode 2 featuring Bopper & Mark and Brendon & Rachel. They're setting up a solar panel  at "Solar Panel Location #3" and it looks like they have to boil a kettle of water too.

Here it is: http://youtu.be/-5lMNlXIdCY

The past tradition for those clips was always to show the first team to be doing the task. There have been hints this time that Mark and Bopper could do well in the leg.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

I found location #3; unfortunately, the blog only describes it as "a lone clay hut in the middle of the mountains," somewhere between Cafayate and Km88.

In the promo, Rachel has such a huge pack. She is making the tradeoff to have a lot of "stuff" instead of traveling light.

Can anyone who speaks Spanish pick up the location Rachel asks Brendon about when she is just putting on her pack?? That should be the pitstop area I think?

Did we identify the #4 and 5 Location?

I think #12 is the first time we have seen that label

Rachel does the RB, and thanks to PROMO 2 we know she isn't happy.

Bopper and Mark and Br/Rachel are all at the RB together at one point.

Re Detours:

Dave and Rachel, Vanessa and Ralph, and Art and JJ do donkeys.

Brendn and Rache and Bopper and Mark do Solar power.

Rest unknown??
