We have a significant time gap between Maputo, Mozambique and Kuala Lumpur - December 2 to December 9 so the teams could very well go north to Europe (one of the five continents visited) to places like Ireland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Serbia and Poland which have not been visited in previous TARs

My wish list includes  Mount Kenya,  Luxor, Crete, The Lake District in England, Nepal, Tibet, and I could keep going for hours!

We better get a preview soon or I'm going to go nuts! :lol:

"some of us think that JohnV & Jill are first to go ..."

"Ten former teams will return to compete in a Race around the world, reuniting some of the most memorable, entertaining and controversial Teams from previous seasons, who will travel more than 45,000 miles, spanning five continents in 28 days"

Maybe they got stuck in traffic on the Palmetto "Expressway" or just decided to head south on the FL Turnpike to the Keys ???

With the usual screwup on TAR postings, this poll might have been scheduled to run AFTER the conclusion of Ep #1.

 :rotf:  " OOPS " is right, looks like somebody jumped the gun. I thought that's why you put it up there...cause you don't miss anything   :lol: (Wonder who's taking bets on JVJ ober yonder.)

Imagine if they had instead posted the poll for F3 ?

OH. MY.

Is there any possibility that this relates to JVJ being a replacement team--like maybe they were not added into this survey in time?  Probably not but...

So are you calling Seattle puddin?

I want to get back to what GEORGIA PEACH said "Are we ready to start speculating more about Ecuador and the Atacama desert?". I previously indicated that the 3 airport cities in the Atacama Desert are Arica, Iquique, and Antofagasta and that I gave a slight edge to Antofagasta based on proximity (only 600 miles) to Santiago. Today I was reading the blog of an intrepid traveler who went the entire length of the Pan American Highway from Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia. He had his car shipped from Panama City into the port of Arica. In his travels in the Atacama, he particularly referenced the Mano Del Desierto statue (previously displayed in this thread by someone) 75 km south of Antofagasta and the fact that Antofagasta is directly on the Tropic of Capricorn (which is South 23 degrees 26' 21.48"). It goes through the International Airport of Antofagasta. That seems to me to be an excellent reason to be going there. The connection Equator to Tropic of Capricorn to maybe Antarctic Circle (South 66 degrees 33' 39") would be a whiz-bang start to AR11. My hypothesis of visiting King George Island doesn't quite reach south enough for the Antarctic Circle, but who knows what they would do to overcome that distance. They could take helicopters 300 miles south to the Antarctic Peninsula at the Loubert Coast and they would have it.

I'm all for that!  :yess: I'll be so disappointed if they don't go to Antarctica (or south pole or whatever Bertram called it)

That blog sounds like something I would LOVE to read--can you provide a link to that? (Feel free to send me a message if you need help doing that--it took me ages to learn and I just about drove puddin crazy with questions while I learned... :js:)


Tropic of Capricorn in Chile--it is near our hand!

I have heard that it is actually 18 seconds of arc south of the equator!  Ref. 

And, using GE, I got that the monument was too far south by 787 feet.

Apskip posted earlier about the blog s/he was reading:

and s/he has been kind enough to share the link to the trip . September is our spots. August looks like trekking in the Andes, and June is the Artic!

This looks like great reading with lots of interesting links to places we want to know about!

 :ty3: apskip--Great find!

Puddin, can you try calling the golf course to see if they do exclusive engagements?  um, for example, like on November 20th?   :angel:

Any Easties that see a TAR promo should, please please please, say so right away so the Westies like me can record it 3 hours later.

Izad just posted this over at sucks:

I actually heard 'an African American couple' but I don't really have any evidence if Ucheynna/Joyce were really indeed the 5th team to arrive (I didn't stay there long enough). And also from what I heard they were coming in from Poland.

For all I know, they just might be trying to throw me off with the info, but I doubt they know I was an evil eavesdropping fucker at the time  I can't tell if they really were trying to throw me off, or I had somehow misheard the info. But it probably would make a lot of sense that they were coming from a really long distance for the 5th team to be delayed so far behind the other teams. That's my assumption anyway. I guess we'll see.


And I'll call the golf course on Monday if you want... :waves: What should I ask? "Which holes did they use?" :js: (you mean November though, right?)

Didn't puddin post the date of the first promo somewhere upstream--I'm leaving to go see Dreamgirls or I would check!

yes  :-[, November 20th.  Thanks.

I'm speculating that their first destination of the race will be the Matad del Mundo monument.

From the airport, it's only 11.5 miles away.  Here's the path.  There is one tricky transition between the airport's main roan and the highway out to the monument.  If you don't make the crossover then you get stuck on the wrong side of a river.  It could even mess up a taxi driver!

Should we start a pool to decide when we will see the first TAR All-Star TV promo?

During the Super Bowl on CBS!
