#5 looks like Jackson Hole/Tetons. I'll add a few of my own

An old pueblo or mission?

Old Faithful?

Mississippi riverboat?

Dixieland jazz?

#4 the mountains in the background may be the Sandias--Albuquerque is famous for balloons--but I can't place it.
#13 I'll make a guess and say Williamsport, PA. Notice the Keystone patch on one sleeve.

There are a lot of riverboats plying the waters for tourists, it turns out. So far, the closest match I've found is in New Orleans

Is the pic posted of the riverboat from the flash intros? If so, they are definately going to New Orleans -- no doubt about it. The bridge is called the crescent city connection and boat is the Natchez which sails daily (pre-Katrina). It's safe to say that the jazz player is also N.O.

#10 may look like New Orleans but it is not. I've viewed the New Orleans skyline many times from the westbank and the bridge isn't right and there is another bridge in the picture that doesn't exist in N.O.

anyone recognizes the state flag?

state flags are here: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/usa/flags/

edit: It doesn't look like a church; there's no cross; maybe it's a museum; there're nothing inside; it's empty

Here're some photos of the churches in Sonora desert: http://parentseyes.arizona.edu/missions/San_Xavier.html

Banzai do you have clearer Vidcaps ? If so would you mind posting them and numbering them then I could delete mine and we could reorganize them ?

Looks like either the Rogers or the Bransens. The build of the male is right for both. For Rogers the mother is petite enough to look like a girl and the front runner could be the son.

It looks like they are running into a stadium? Perhaps they have to find something in the Superdome -- a needle in a haystack?

I don't think that #8 is Gettysburg.  The 2005 annual re-enactment there was a week earlier on July 1 to 3.  Doubt that even TAR or CBS has enough clout to get all the re-enacters to come back on July 9 and 10.  ONLY Civil War enactment for July 9 -10 is in Beverly,West Virginia - the Battle of Rich Mountain. An important battle which allowed the "free state" of West Virginia to leave the Confedercy.  But it certainly isn't as big a battle as Bull Run, Antietum, or Gettysburg. But maybe TAR has more clout than I think.

Thought the mission was the Alamo, but does not match any pix I can find.

Could be Jackson Hole, Wyoming since we supposedly had a sighting of Phil there (but date was week after Niagara Falls sighting.

With the new Yellow and White route marker, perhaps the Niagara Fall sighting on July 31 is for real. Go back and check.

Alas, no Alaska scenes in teaser vidcaps. Sucks, there goes my theory.  But looks like a lot of time travelling around the West for which we had no sightings. 

Check again on Grand Canyon; doesn't seem to really be a canyon, more like the badlands of the four corners used in many early westerns.

#3 -- I've been looking at websites of hot air balloon companies in the southwest trying to find the right pattern and color. The picture gallery of one in Utah has a match. The picture is titled "tag-a-long".  http://www.skywalker.at/index.html

At Tarflies, somebody says their "P" looks like the Panama flag. And they don't look like Americans, or American Indians to me.

Here's a photo of the Curundu (Panama) junior league, 2005 world champs

The photo is a year old; the uniforms have changed but the hats are similar. Source here

Could be a shot of the Panama Little League team either in Williamsburg or down in Panama where we believe the teams travel.

The other board had a good matching pix of the hot air balloon from a Utah company.  But the balloons could also be flying in New Mexico well known for its annual balloon festival.  I'll seeif I can get the pix over here

Twop identified the plane in photo #6 as the "Extra 300". It's an acrobatic plane.

I think Gman is on the right track with Utah. Compare the color scheme (yellow/orange/red/purple/blue) and design with the balloon in Park City

Stupid hyperlink  (:;) Source: pcballoonadventures.com/gallery
The canyons #3 also have a Utah look. Anybody vacation or live there?

Oops! It looks like Chateau and me have to find some software that does batch resizing.

The old mission in vidcap #21 is probably in the Sonoran Desert.  That's the only place where you'll find Saguaro Cactus (Northern Mexico, Southern Arizona, SE Cali).  Also, the tri color flag in front of the mission is similar to the flags of the state of Sonora and the national Mexican flag.
