Here is my updated list of countries and places that TAR has not been to but certainly could add some well needed new blood to our teams' travels:

No America:
  Canada - Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Vancouver and Victoria

  Guatemala, Beliz

  Carribean Islands - Virgin Islands, Bermuda

Europe
  Belgium
  Denmark
  Ireland
  Finland
  Estonia
  Latvia
  Lithuania
  Ukraine
  Slovakia - Bratislava
  Czech Republic - Prague
  Romania - Translvania (Dracula!)
  Bulgaria - Veliko Tarnova
  Serbia-Montenegro - Belgrade, Novi Sad
  Croatia - Osijek - Dubrovnik Coast
  Slovenia
  Malta
  Greek Islands

Africa
  A problem here due to widespread drought, famine, and genocide

  Algeria
  Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls

Asia
  Israel
  Turkey (Asian part)
  Jordan
  Taiwan
  Mongolia

Oceania
  Guam
  Saipan
  Micronesia
  Marshall Islands

South America

  Hard to find a new country here that doesn't have somekind of political problem

One more suggestion:  Why not for once go around the world EAST to WEST?  Start in Asia or Oceania and end up coming through the Carribean?

TAR has been in many of the united states also, either as part of the family edition or as starting and ending locations. What states have not been visited at all?
When all is said and done, there is nothing more to say.

I think one of the reasons the race course goes first usually to south America then to Europe or Africa, instead of going to Asia first is not to just kill all theplayers.

Usually every season has several players who speak spanish.  We have had few who spoke any of hte asian country's native tongue.

Seriously.

Season 1-Africa, I don't rember which country but its the one with Victoria falls.

Season two:  Argentina
Season Three:  Mexico
Season four:  I want to say Switzerland, but it was definetly a European country.
Season 5:  I want to say Brazil (but again definelty south America, though it might have been Argentina since tleg 2 featured the cementary with Eva Peron.


Season 6:  Iceland, I think.
Season 7:  Chili, I think
Season 9:  Brazil.

If a team went straight to Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, ect.  They take a huge risk that the not so good teams (usually the first four to six eliminated) would be so out of their element and lsot that there would be a huge time difference between first team and the next to last.  So that  tehy would have to have huge equilizers to get the teams back together.

Again, though that leaves such fairly safe places like Australia or New Zealand or even hawaii for the first leg (I know we have had taks in Hawaii, but have we had a whole leg there).

The teams might just be killed on the large amount of travel time. 

Talk about Zet lag from hell on just the first leg, if htey went that route.

First legs for TAR were as follows:

1.  Johannesburg, South Africa and then on to Zambia (Victoria Falls)

2. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

3. Mexico City, Mexico

4. Milan, Italy

5. Punte del Este, Uruguay

6. Iceland

7. Lima, Peru

8. Family Fun

9. Sao Paulo, Brazil

Brazil is the only country used twice in leg one.

Race started in South America 4 times; Europe 2 times; Africa 1 time; No. America (Mexico) 1 time

A race from East to West could start out as follows: to Hawaii, to Guam, to New Zealand.  This would pose no problems for the teams since all three locations speak English.  And the effects of jet lag are minimized when you actually gain time as you fly west.

I believe one reason for heading to South America is the weather.  For the races that start in late Fall in the US, it is early spring in the southern hemisphere.  Not as much travel disruption in warmer times of the year.

One could use Gman's excellent list and coordinate with starting dates.  Because TAR10 starts in summer, my guess is that they stay in the northern hemisphere for the first leg.

Don't forget Puerto Rico.  It's almost a state.

I think we are due to start in Boston. 

But I'm still going to keep my eyes open for another LA area start.  I will be at the airport on the 17th.

I'd definitely like to see them go to the Southern Hemisphere for this race. All the TARs that have been filmed during the summer (3,6,8) stayed strictly in the Northern Hemisphere, so we never got to see a Southern Hemisphere winter.

I'd really like a route like this

Leg 1: Boston, FL to Bogota, Colombia (it really isn't that bad of a place)
Leg 2: Bogota to Salvador, Brazil
Leg 3: Salvador to Antananarivo, Madagascar
Leg 4: Antanarivo to Chennai, INdia (a decent India leg is long overdue)
Leg 5: India to Melbourne, Australia
Leg 6: Melbourne to Suva, Fiji
Leg 7: Fiji to Belmopan, Belize
Leg 8: Belmopan to Vancouver

(teams get a clue that says "Sorry, we're going home the long way, so fly to....)

Leg 9: Vancouver to Sapporo, Japan (this would be better for a winter TAR, so they could visit the winter festival)
Leg 10: Sapporo to Lhasa, Tibet
Leg 11: Lhasa to Kiev, Ukraine
Leg 12: Kiev to Dublin, Ireland
Leg 13: Ireland to Virgin Islands to Boston

KF for sure

Oh Yeah! Rose Bowl !  That would be great because I get within spitting distance Monday through Friday!  I will have to keep an eagle eye out for unique vehicles going there in the mornings.

If it's an L.A. permit you're after, it's going to be a little harder to get. What used to be an open, friendly office a few blocks from Grauman's Chinese is now tucked behind a couple extra layers of security at Los Angeles Center Studios. Appts are needed in Pasadena; they're too busy for walk-ins.

Not counting the miles the teams might travel within a country (such as to Bruges or Ghent while going to Brussels) it covers a tight 29,845 miles.

Puddin, dear, haven't you yet learned the difference between a Schnitzel and a half-meter Bratwurst?????

And with the World Cup taking up most of June in Germany, a good excuse not to go there in TAR10. But they do have good Bratwurst!!
