I'm sick about visiting to South America as the 1st continent to race for TAR 22 because of the infamous TARLA. (:;)

I want either Africa or Australia/South Pacific as the 1st continent to race it. :gaah:

I think tomorrow will be the start of TAR 22. I am going to guess that we get a start in the South, but it might be LA again.

I just think that South America will be visited first, so it would make sense to start in the south. Who knows though what the first destination is and where it will start, I just think that we will see the start tomorrow.

If the start of TAR22 won't do for tomorrow, it will be for another week.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Why? Is it too early to start for sequester? I guess the LA area would start the race. I'm tired of South America starts since TAR2 and has been done eight times for its 11 year run.

Oceania leg please.

Just a reminder that TPTB do like starting filming on holiday weekends in the U.S., if not ending filming on a holiday weekend.

This weekend is considered a three-day holiday weekend in the U.S. since tomorrow is a legal holiday (Veterans' Day) that will be observed on Monday. Although many private employers do not give Veterans' Day as a paid or unpaid holiday (i.e., regular workday,) the federal government, most states and local governments d observe the holiday, as well as federally chartered banks, and the postal service (no banking or mail on Monday.)

Of course areas recovering from both the recent Superstorm and the more recent winter storm will have most government and retail services open due to the emergency those storms have created.

So, take that information for what it is worth.

I think that Seoul could be a great start-city, and then off to Japan!!!!

I am 99% sure Japan will not be visited since it has been visited twice in the last four seasons. :tup:

I would be really surprised if the race doesn't start in South America. I'm hoping for Brazil and the Patagonia Region  :hearts:.

I highly doubt they visit South America since we spent 3 legs there in Season 20.

In the same line,  they shouldn't visit Asia again because they had 5 legs on this season and in Season 19 :( .

Yeah, but based on past trends, TAR only visits South America on average about once every 3 to 4 years.

Brazil and patagonia would be repetitive. Perú & Ecuador would be really nice. But i don't think SA will be visited this year.

Uhh... these are the seasons the race has viisited South America.
2,5,7,9,11,13,16,18,20

The pattern is usually every other season (or sometimes 2 seasons apart) visits South America

Brazil was visited for only 1 leg in Season 18 and Patagonia hasn't been visited since Season 16. Peru and Ecuador are in the Andes, and didn't the race go there in Season 20. Wouldn't going back be repetitive.

Last year they went to Argentina and that area is surrounded by the Andes, it's not in the Andes. On the other hand Perú and Ecuador have A LOT more to offer than just the Andes.

And in TAR:UB, Asia had also spent 5 legs too.

All I'm hoping for South America is that they kill the Chile & Argentina pairing. Whenever Chile is a destination, I always sigh and say "Argentina again, right?" :(

Columbia and Venezuela aren't used because of the potential threats to Americans, just like Mexico these past few years.

One country that may now be on the permitted list is Myanmar now that President Obama and Secretary Clinton are due there for an official visit in about 10 days.
