What was the date on that thing about the Ottawa sighting and the guy in a hat? Before or after the OC article? That way, we can know if the OC article could have quoted it or got their info from another source.

OK, so no Canada then...

Still trying to figure out some possibilities for those first couple legs. Mileage and dates would suggest another location or two...

i cant draw but if phil is saying it took alot out of him my guess is there is alot of zig zagging to make up the miles ala tar5.

Africa looks like its screaming " what about me ?" 
I wonder if we will get more intro caps when the show starts ? How could we have no peeks of Australia ?

The whole route is so exciting  |#' !

I really think we are missing something in South America. Having such a long flight to Brasil, just for one or two locations, doesnt seem right.

Another thing.  I dont think they used VARIG to get to Brasil.  They might have used another airline.  Varig had to be used for flights inside of Brasil.

varig is a member of the star allience. going back since tar5 united and american have been used one way or another for the first flight out of the starting city. so if they flew to la they caught the varig flight from lax, and flew to dallas on american since going to miami wouldnt work out cause of the flights. so la to brazil on varig works. or they could of gone to chicago on united and took another united flight to sao paulo. but they had to go to another place in south america also using varig

So Puddin,  :neener:

What's up with Wikipedia?  That "edit" I made adding Alaska vanished.  Like some overlord was making his rounds through his stately garden and spotted a weed.  Yank!    ]*]

About the teams, someone posted a more detailed description on the forum at tv.com. I don't know if it's accurate, though:

Team 1: A curly redhead is pictured, however her partner is not. Rumoured to be a guy and this is the newlywed or engaged couple.

Team 2:Young brunette females could be sisters and could use flirting as a weapon.

Team 3:These people are probably Amish. The man is bearded and the woman has puffy blonde hair. They are middle aged. Prtobably a married couple.They dressed very odd.

Team 4:This team could have a racially mixed male and a African American Female. They look like Frank/Margarita.
Could be a strong team. Probably a dating couple.

Team 5:an all male team. One male is Italian. Rumoured they are friends and one is strait and one is Gay. The First ever gay/strait friend both the same gender.

Team 6:Very tall man and very short blonde Female. He looks older than her and could be a father/daughter team or a way older dating team like Ray/Deana

Team 7:The Granny team like Peggy/Claire. However they look about 50. They could be the first lezz couple

Team 8:An all-male team however not too strong.

Team 9:An country middle age couple. Probably just a bit older than Debra/Steve.

Team 10: Young Asian females. First time we have an all asian team.

Team 11: The nerds. Rumoured than the Female in this group could be Angie from Survivor Palau

Just a note about my (lack of) progress on the Russian front. Use the two Puddin caps below for reference. At first I thought it was the changing of the Kremlin guard, a recently re-instituted ceremony. The flag on the right is of course Russian, and I thought the flag on the left might be a guard flag. Compare with this photo. The flag is similar but it's hard to tell; the insignia of the guard (the double-headed eagle, seen here as a sleeve patch) might be at the flag's center. But the uniforms are very different; some have suggested that it's a different set of duds for winter, but I think it's best to keep looking.

I'm just trying to nail down the who and where of the photos. It's in Russia, of course, and probably in Moscow (St. Basil's) and maybe at the Kremlin. It would be great if it were the changing of the Guard, because there's a time-stamp attached to the ceremony--only on Saturdays. I'm hoping to avoid checking out all the variations in uniforms and badges (want to look at shoulder patches? here's a gazillion of them |().
On a different topic: any luck with the blogs, Puddin? You'd think somebody would have blabbed about the nerds or bartenders by now.
