( follow the quote links for the picture attachments, attached pictures do not "quote" )

Thanks for the 11/25 photos, PUDDIN. It is pretty clear that Rob/Amber and Dustin/Kandice  and Danielle/Eric are not on King George Island! It must be Punta Arenas and in back of Danielle and Eric how about the Strait of Magellan? In conjunction with the timing issues and the statements from van Munster on TV Gudie Channel last night, I have now returned to my original position that there will be no Antarctica on AR11. It apparently was too expensive and pointless except for the opportunity to claim one extra continent visited.

GEORGIAPEACH, I think you are forcing your thinking too narrowly into what you want the answer to be. Look at the accumulated evidence and see what conclusions are likely. I think you will decide that pit stop #3 is in PUNTA ARENAS, probably starting the evening of Nov. 25. The teams then go to USHUAIA and not King George Island or Antarctica. I expect them to leave USHUAIA on the 936pm flight out on Nov. 28.

What are the likely transportation options? I have been scouring the Internet and I have found some more that are interesting. There is a second bus company in Puntas Areans which has connecting service to USHUAIA on the 4 days that were not serviced by Pacheco Bus Company. This service leaves at 830am instead of 730am and probably takes at least the 12 hours of the direct bus. Also, in addition to the LAN flights on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday from PUNTA ARENAS to USHUAIA, I have discovered that DAP "In summer, it flies Twin Otters to Ushuaia Monday, Wednesday, and Friday only (US$100). It also has extensive charter services. " That could be the answer on how teams get there relatively fast since as has been clarified for me Nov. 26 was a Sunday when no regular flights are scheduled and the teams must get to USHUAIA to be sighted that afternoon.

What would one see and do in and around PUNTAS ARENAS? The most interesting thing is too far away, the Parque Nacional Torres del Paine 250 miles north. Although Punta Arenas is a mid-sized city at 120,000 inhabitants, it does not have a wealth of top-notch tourist attractions nearby. The best to me is visiting the penguin colony at Magdalena Island 25 km away in the Strait of Magellan. I'll bet that van Munster/Doganieri found something to do in Punta Arenas, maybe an eating challenge.



You are right--this does look like Punta Arenas--and here is some park-like place too...

More Punta pics--there is a plaza in town with the statue...could that be where the BQ's are? Slightly pinkish building behind Rob?

Punta street scenes..
More Punta...there is a cemetary...

More Punta

NOTICE THE TREES

and there is a Jockey Club
How long would it take by BOAT from Punta to Ushuaia?  Too long, right?

Darn, can't even say they crossed the Strait of Magellan...

Ah, GEORGIAPEACH, you answered your own questions correctly each time. It's hardly necessary for me to point out:

1. That it would take approximately 1.5 days for a boat travelling at 20 mph to get from PUNTA ARENAS to USHUAIA via the most direct routing.

2. That you go down the Strait of Magellan until you diverge into one of several different channels to continue south, then west, then southeast, then east, then north toward USHUAIA. You never cross the Strait to the other side.
My turn for questions...What is this thing (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/00022-6-2007-1.jpg) a stargate?  ;D More bent trees? If I'm looking at it wrong, I apologize; but if it's a unique structure it shouldn't be hard to find.

*Stargate** :lol: :lol: I love it! MAybe it will transport Rob!

I found some trees just like it in the plaza in Punta--but it is on webshots and my computer won't open it--some kind of wbz file? If you can tell me how to open it, I'll bring it over...

This picture was taken here between 1:15 and 1:45 pm (assumes November 25th)
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/13Feb0016.jpg)(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/GEofPApark.jpg)

This is the camera angle over the steps up to Magellan's statue.

Here's the link (http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.nikonians-images.com/galleries/data/4664/12464plaza-mu_oz-gamero-thumb.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.nikonians-images.com/galleries/showgallery.php%3Fcat%3Dall%26stype%3D1%26si%3DFerd&h=60&w=150&sz=4&hl=en&start=35&tbnid=8VgFZOywFWgOxM:&tbnh=38&tbnw=96&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplaza%2Bmunoz%2Bgamero%26start%3D20%26ndsp%3D20%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN) to the picture

It's a wide angle shot so it looks distorted.  The walkway that the Barbies are on is directly behind the statue in this shot.
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/PAparkcamaraangle.jpg)


Since this shot has D&K running alone and we have another shot at the same location with them right next to Romber I think that this is the location of an Intersection where teams have to pair up and work together.

The zodiac shot has the Chas paired with Eric and Daniel.
Very Nice, Chateau!

If that isn't an Intersection--I think that would be a very interesting two teams to join forces--I would have thought they would be in conflict from the first go! :meow:

They seem to be sharing a map...

So where are they going? They better have a really good task here to make up to me about no Antarctica!!
Well, OK. I was kind of doubting P.A., but I'll throw in the towel. Compare the signs to the facade of the Hotel Plaza (http://www.hotelplaza.cl/index-in.html).
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/indexCA5T67OZ.jpg)(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/indexCA0YMLN6.jpg)

THINGS TO DO IN PUNTA ARENAS:So the statue is to Magellan--don't forget to rub his toes!


Quote
CENTER CITY

Around the Plaza de Armas are government buildings; the Club de la Union (Union Club); and mansions with turrets, beautiful roofs, glassed-in sunrooms and well-kept gardens with huge "araucaria" trees (slow-growing native trees revered by the indigenous people of the region).

The plaza itself is full of huge, old trees, and in the center is the Monumento a Hernando de Magallanes (Monument to Ferdinand Magellan). Note that the toes of one of the bronze indians is polished and shiny. Local legend states that everyone who touches these toes will return to Punta Arenas someday, making the statue a favorite with tourists and locals alike.


The panoramic views are taken from the Mount of the Cross:

Quote
MOUNT OF THE CROSS

There is a wonderful panoramic view from the top of this hill of the entire city, with its red, blue and yellow roofs and streets sloping toward the Strait. On the horizon Tierra del Fuego can be seen, as well as Monte Sarmiento (Sarmiento Mount) and the southern part of the Brunswick Peninsula. The wrecks of old sailing ships that have remained where they ran aground also can be seen in the distance.

To see the other side of the city, go to the northern peak of Cerro de la Cruz. Follow Señoret street to Colón avenue, turn left and walk uphill for two blocks on this cobblestoned street dating from colonial times. This peak offers a different view of the area - the city's industrial section, the Barrio Hortícola (Horticulture Neighborhood), the Zona Franca (Duty Free Zone), and a lake used for ice skating to the left. Eight kilometers in the distance are the ski slopes of Cerro Mirador (Lookout Mountain), lines of open clearings slashing through the forested slope of the hill.


About the Cemetery--

Quote
THE CEMETERY
This cemetery is interesting because of the huge mausoleums built years ago by the area's wealthy families. José Menéndez, an important pioneering businessman, has one of the most imposing mausoleums. It is a smaller copy of the Victor Manuel monument in Rome. The cemetery also contains a memorial to the fallen indigenous people of the region.


Some forts--

Quote
FORT BULNES AND PORT FAMINE
Both of these sites are located approximately 60 Kms. south of Punta Arenas. They are interesting primarily for their historical significance. Puerto del Hambre was an early Spanish settlement along the Strait of Magellan, and Fuerte Bulnes established Chilean authority over the region. To reach these sites, travel south on Route 9. The road winds along the edge of the Strait, and along the way can be seen the remains of shipwrecked boats

And my favorite--two places to see penguins--one where you walk among them!

Quote
OTWAY INLET
The penguin colony is located 65 kilometers north of Punta Arenas on Seno Otway (Otway Inlet), along the northwest of the Brunswick Peninsula. The Magellanic Penguins return annually to this spot between October and March to lay eggs and raise their young. At the site, you will walk approximately two kilometers to the middle of a natural reserve filled with penguin burrows to see the comic antics of these delightful and defenseless creatures at close range.


Quote
MAGDALENA ISLAND
This island and its neighboring islet Marta is home to tens of thousands of Magellanic Penguins, cormorants, other birds and sea lions. Both islands make up the Monumento Natural Los Pingüinos (The Penguins Natural Monument), located 25 nautical miles north of Punta Arenas. The estimated population of the penguins on these two islands is more than 50,000 penguin pairs.
The boat trip to Isla Madgdalena offers contrasting views to the west and east of the Strait. On the west coast can be seen the Tres Puentes area, the village of Río Seco and other small settlements along the shore. Industrial centers and oil production centers can be seen in the distance, such as Bahia Laredo and Cabo Negro. Toward the east, the coast of Tierra del Fuego looms flat and long. In front of Isla Magdalena can be seen the deep Bahía Gente Grande (Large People Bay), a name that was given to this bay by Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa four centuries ago because of the tall stature of the indigenous Ona tribe.


GEORGIAPEACH, I am following up on your THINGS TO DO IN PUNTA ARENAS. I previously suggested that Magdalena Island was the only really good thing to do in the vicinity of PUNTA ARENAS. I have discovered another one. The southernmost point of the South American land mass, excluding the islands of Tierra del Fuego, Cape Horn and all of the smaller ones, is at Capo Froward just south of PUNTA ARENAS. It is where the Strait of Magellan makes a turn to the northwest before continuing on into the Pacific Ocean about 200 miles further.

I thought you all would have figured out what Charla & Mirna are doing as well as Rob by now  :lol:
It appears to be the same area ..

All I noticed so far is that Mirna is making Charla carry the lumber.   :lol3:
lol ..in Charlas other hand she is carrying more stuff ..and Mirna as well



Quote
Fishing poles

I think so too...but I remember some fishing pole thing in Africa that had a net attached--I think this looks vey similar.

Yes to the Cotapaxi.

I have no idea what Charla is carrying!  :lol:She also has a shiny little can --tools? paint? But I have seen homes just like that in my searches this week--maybe Ushuaia? Punta? Darn--can't remember!

Landscape where the flat tire is looks like the flat part of Porvenir...

What did we decide about the view of Drew? I have no memory of this on the first race--did they do a jump? I of course remember the famous bungee but without checking the recaps--I'm thinking maybe this is new? Oh boy, I can't wait!
I'm thinking maybe PA for the map task (same place as the telephone poles, right?) There's a magellan statue in the town square, and the map looks similar to the Mercator-Hondius map (http://www.loc.gov/wiseguide/dec02/maps.html).

OK, I'll try again. Compare the funny-looking roof next to Eric's shoulder with this shot from GE (Panoramio). Cerro de la Cruz:

Heres where the GE pic and the promo pic were taken from:
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/GECerrodelacruz.jpg)
Fwiw, an interactive PA street map here (http://www.puntaarenas.cl/imap4final/indexplanos.html). The town square ("Sector Central Plaza de Armas") and Cerro de la Cruz are only about 4 blocks apart.
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/PA.jpg)

I guess Charla has to haul the timber up the hill from Magellan's Statue.

This clip was taken between 2:59 and 3:18 pm (assumes November 26th)

If they do go to Antarctica, between Punta Arenas and Ushuaia is another possibility -- Punta Arenas is another prime spot for flights to the 7th continent. Don't know if the dates can be worked out...

Maybe TPTB made them some good props Slowhatch? they do look like compass's and Rob is holding a gold something.

Maybe it fits in with your map (I'm going to find the post... )

Chateau has already established the sightline for the BQ photo (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/13Feb0016.jpg) and the Hotel Plaza faces the west side of the town square, so the BQs are entering the plaza from the Cerro-side. Either Cerro de la Cruz comes before Magellan, or there's still another task we're unaware of (or the cabdriver just happened to drop them off at that point  ;D). Dustin is holding something--maybe one of those oldtime maps.

Hold the show!   :o

That sharper image just turned my time estimate upside down.  The whole scene is roatated by 90 deg thanks to this corner that I did not see before.  I will have to redo the time for Romber.

This shot was taken between 12:44 and1:17 pm (assumes November 25th)

Puddin, I need you to correct the earlier post of mine that has a much later time for Romber.

Thanks, so the new time tells me that they do the Direction Pole task on Cerro del a Cruz and then go down to Magellan's statue. 

And it looks like Dustin has injured herself.

Before I forget ...what are the gold rings?

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/13Feb0015.jpg)

They might be some type of local jewelry that they had to buy in a detour and then return to a local to receive their next clue .

Heeee....puddin is the chief and best detective of us all! :gman: She brings us all the lovely press releases, posts most all the screen captures, searches for hours and hours to track down and identify the sites, updates and organizes all of the spoiler lists, and in her spare time keeps us all in line as the moderator!

Doing all that has (recently) turned her into the "Village Idiot" and is why she "lives at RFF"--so we let her get away with her Romber love!

Gnarly Marly, you can hardly call San Pedro de Atacama, Puerto Montt, and Punta Arenas the same area. There is 1000 miles between each pair and 2000 between San Pedro de Atacama and Punta Arenas. The only geographically close legs will be Punta Arenas to Ushuaia and that will still require 12 hours by ferry and bus or car to get there since flying is out due to the day of the week.

I could have forgiven them 5 South American legs if they had managed to get to Antarctica... but even though this next week looks fabulous--I would still have rather had another African or Asian location just for the variety and to shake up the language skills required...

But apskip has the geography down :tup:--and the locations within SA have been/will be pretty varied in terms of conditions.

There's an old axiom that goes:

Rule #1 the Boss is always right.
Rule #2 When the Boss is wrong, consult Rule #1.

Puerto Montt is in the southern half of Chile; However, since Chile is over 3000 miles long, it is still 1000 miles from Punta Arenas. Read what I said about the proximity of Punta Arenas and Ushuaia. Despite being about 160 miles apart as the crow flies, there are no crows flying when needed for transportation so I believe teams have to go the long way around the center of Tierra Del Fuego Island.

I can vouch that EP2 pitstop was Thanksgiving (11/23) making EP3 (11/24) and why would the Guidos be booking flights to South Africa in Ushuaia on the 28th? and teams spotted in Tierra del Fuego on the 26th?

Slowhatch--why do you think Ushuaia came first??

I definitely saw an Argentina flag waving there at the end, so I was just glad to see we get Puntas and Ushuaia--did I miss something?

I would think this has to be some kind of NEL/TBC/"marked for elimination" or best of all--(close your eyes puddin) Romber get yielded!

Boy--not too many clues in that promo, are there? TPTB are getting stingy!

Post by: asamber1 on March 04, 2007, 08:51:42 PM
I am a Romber fan but looking on the bright side, at least someone new can come in first place.  They broke records and were only on the race for 4 legs, came in first already 3 times, most teams dont even come in fist one time.  So looking at it, they may come in 8th but prize wise what do they come in third? forth?.  Now they just get a month vaca in Aculpolco!  I'm sure they will enjoy that much more than suffering through Africa for at least two legs.

Most of the caps match either Ushuaia airport (see here (http://www.keeping-up.co.uk/Travel/Antarctic/Antarctic00591r.jpg) and here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/55822983@N00/245978218/)) or Lapataia. If the editing is accurate (Charla accuses Amber), then the racers proceed quickly--if not directly--to the park.

It is quickly turning out that Charla and Mirna are the villians of TARAS!  They have now and will continue next week to irrate everyone in the race and everyone watching.

It is going to be a reall fall for Romber - three time winners, and then kapunki they get yielded, or intersected, or just plain screwed - and get the old Philiminated treatment!

Okay--whew! They all have to go rub Magellan's toe in the Plaza, you know!

And remember they are there until 11/28--that's a lot of time.  I still think we are looking at some kind of continued episode, and Romber will survive for one more week.

Now if we're getting the zodiacs already next week (that was on 11/26)---then there is still something special that we don't know about for those two other days--maybe just enough time to squeeze in Antarctica! :badhorse:

Either that or they have a 60 hour pitstop... :lol:

And now I'm really thinking chartered flight from Puntas to Ushuaia--time seems to be moving PDQ!

Is this really a Pitstop--I'm not seeing a mat? Can anyone be sure that is Phil? Who can do a high-res??

Because if that is a Pitstop--complete with a Greeter--then it probably isn't a TBC--or so they are saying at Sucks...

The surprise promised in the episode 4 preview is almost certainly the elimination of Rob and Amber. Nothing else would be suitably monumental and it does fit the boot list perfectly. Episode 4 is highly probable to be elimination based on everything we know. The interesting question that remains open is how the teams get from Punta Arenas to Tierra del Fuego National Park near Ushuaia. there a re few options and they have been reviews previously in the SPOILER thread. Summarizing, no scheduled flights exist on Sunday 11/26, by water is too slow, and that leaves ferry to Porvenir and then either bus or U-drove car from there to the park, an 8 to 9 hour drive. Charter flight is also a possibility, as indicated by GEORGIA PEACH below before I added this sentence.

**Ushuaia, Argentina   

 posted on Monday, Nov 27, 2006  saw the Racers on 11/25 or 26 ?? 

Alter a 7 hour flight with a terrible hangover from Thanksgiving, we arrived in Ushuaia, the southern most city in the World!!!! It really feels like it…the sun rises around 4:30 AM and does not set until 10:30 PM. We went on an excursion that took us through the Beagle Channel where we stopped at several islands to see the sea lions, birds, and some famous lighthouse. The following day Dave and I headed out to the Tierra del Fuego Nacional Park. We did a few small treks and at the southern most point of the park where Route 3 ends, we ran into contestants from the AMAZING RACE!!! (that might be the most exciting thing we saw in Ushuaia) Dave and I tried to run and get in on the action but we were ignored. PS, it is soooo staged. I don't have many pics because I need my battery to last longer

It's a little fuzzy but you can definitely see Phil. There's a small plaque next to the mat: maybe it's a "mirador" or viewpoint in the park.

There are some steps leading down from some kind of tower (maybe Lapataia, but not necessarily); you can see Uchenna holding a red card running down what looks like the same steps.

A "Find the Argentine Flag" roadblock, perhaps? It might be like the TAR 5 - 12 task (Philippines), or the TAR 6 - 11 roadblock (Sri Lanka).

Interesting editing by TPTB to try to give the impression that we have seven teams racing to the pit stop.BUT the scenes of Bill and Joe, and Uchenna and Joyce are from a different location.  Also noted that Uchenna seems to be carrying a red DETOUR clue .  So these two scenes seem to be from the DETOUR and NOT the pit stop.

We have four teams seeming to be from the final race to the matt: Oswald and Danny, Eric and Dee, The BQ's, Charla and Mirna.  Rob and Amber seem to be taking a "short cut" somewhere.  Missing are any scenes of Ian and Teri.

Would we have a fast forward in the same ep as an Intersection? Perhaps not since this would leave seven teams racing and an intersection only works with an even number of teams; and if we have a FF taken then we are left with seven teams . And the  blurb from CBS seems to say that we do have an Intersection at work in ep 4.

You're memory is better than mine (guess I'll need that Geritol afterall)   James and Tyler and Rob and Kimberly paired up at the intersection and took the Fast Forward.  BUT the Beauty Queens did all the task and still beat them to the Pit Stop. James/Thyler came in second and Rob/Kimberly in third.  SO the FF doesn't always guarantee a win.

Yeah, that was a weird FF -- didn't seem to give an advantage at all. Maybe by combining a FF/Intersection with more teams still in the race, it would serve a better purpose.

Post by: apskip on March 05, 2007, 10:06:14 AM
I want to toss in what I believe we know about the departure on Episode 5 and see what implications it has for the episode 4 pit stop. First, I expect the departure on ep 5 for the leading teams to be the morning of Nov. 28 so that they can reach Ushuaia airport by 930am for the 1033am flight to Buenos Aires (one of two a day). I am guessing that all teams except the Guidos get this flight. The Guidos get one 12 hours later, but it doesn't make any difference since all will be bunched by Sao Paulo airport for the once a day transatlantic flight to Johannesburg.

Now, that means to me that the Guidos finish episode 4 after 8pm on Dec. 26 and there is a 36 hour extended rest pitstop. All other teams except the eliminated one will be finishing by 8pm. It is over an hour from Tierra del Fuego National Park to Ushuaia airport and I consider it very likely that the teams will stay and recuperate in the National Park. That would also minimize the probability of being sighted in Ushuaia, which only happened to the Guidos running into French tourists at the travel agency and by those responsible for the blog most of us have seen.

And it looks like they're waiting for a ferry on that dock, based on the sign behind Rob... Isla Redonda.
From this site (http://www.moon.com/planner/argentina/mustsee/pn_tierra_fuego.html):

From Bahía Ensenada, near the southeastern edge of the park, there are boat excursions to Isla Redonda (US$14 pp) from 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.

From the picture of Dustin at the dock, it seems that she is picking a number. Since she takes the last number on the first row, she is probably in 4th place at that time.
And the Guidos may be in 3rd place since they and the BQs are running to the dock at the same time?

With this preview (thanks puddin!), I'm guessing that there might be no Intersection. Two Detour tasks are shown: one is making a mileage post that points to places around the world and the teams should be right in whether the places are to the east or west of where they were. The other detour is with a compass, could be like the TAR 7 London episode detour (Sherlock scavenger hunt). And just a guess on the name of the Detour (but maybe Intersection) choices: East-West or North-South.  :lol:

Could it be that the compass is used to correctly point the signs in the correct direction.  I.E. New York ENE,etc.  And we have seen two teams together with the compass: Romber and the BQ's I think, so that could be the intersection.

What I get from the clues:

**Charla and Mirna, and Rob and Amber, have to work together, possibly at an intersection, and are at the back of the pack.
**It comes down to R/A and C/M with the elimination, but Rombre stuffs up at the detour and Schmirna overtakes them  :hearts:
**Romber is eliminateddd :groan:

Wow this is even worse than Lyn and Karlyn beating the Beauty Queens.  The Least deserving team taking out the most deserving team!

Question:  How is it that when teams like Danielle and Dani, and Lyn and Karlyn place bad they bad terrible racers ect ect but when Chlara and Mirna just do terrible they are still seen as good racers.  Mind you after the first three legs the Double Dees actually place better than CM [9, 8, 6], and Lyn and Karlyn have the same average as CM [9, 9, 6].  At least LK, and DD for the first three legs got along with most of the other teams, Chalra and Mirna get along with, noone?  Kind of hypocritical by some of you viewers.

I don't see R/A working with C/M at an intersection, because then what would the pictures of them working with D/K be from?

Hmm..I can see D/K being the team that has a meltdown due to one member putting the other down. I hope it's not them though!

Well I'm a romber fan too [well no duh], and of course I'm devastated to see them go next week, but my guess is that they all catch up [at the dock] & Romber just falls behind.

I think its Bill that puts Joe down :nods: and i don't think theres an intersection ..I just think Shmirna & Romber get stuck or lost and get forced to work together to get out of the situation and Shmirna beats them in a race to the pitstop somehow after Romber make a critical mistake.
Also I think its Bill for the title to Joe.

oh what makes you say that Puddin?

Hmm..is there a preview that I missed or are you just speculating?

Aww.. I was looking forward to an intersection...the previews really made it look like there was one, and then the web clues made me think there was one even more!

 Tierra del Fuego Nacional Park. We did a few small treks and at the southern most point of the park where Route 3 ends, we ran into contestants from the AMAZING RACE!!! (that might be the most exciting thing we saw in Ushuaia) Dave and I tried to run and get in on the action but we were ignored. PS, it is soooo staged.

**It comes down to R/A and C/M with the elimination, but Rombre stuffs up at the detour and Schmirna overtakes them  :hearts:
**Romber is eliminateddd :groan:




Wow this is even worse than Lyn and Karlyn beating the Beauty Queens.  The Least deserving team taking out the most deserving team!

Question:  How is it that when teams like Danielle and Dani, and Lyn and Karlyn place bad they bad terrible racers ect ect but when Chlara and Mirna just do terrible they are still seen as good racers.  Mind you after the first three legs the Double Dees actually place better than CM [9, 8, 6], and Lyn and Karlyn have the same average as CM [9, 9, 6].  At least LK, and DD for the first three legs got along with most of the other teams, Chalra and Mirna get along with, noone?  Kind of hypocritical by some of you viewers.

Well many people are judging these teams not strickly on just this season but on the season they previously appeared.

And in season 5 Charla & Mirna had a good racing average, by this point and to leg four they and Brandon & Nicole had the best average.  When they were eliminated they still had one of the better averages of their season.

And some people like their confrontationly campy over the top behavior (Personally I hate it).  And while I also judge Rob & Amber from season 7 (and the seasons of surivior and the wedding, ect, ect).  If it came to a choice between them and Charla & Mirna I would Rather have Rob & Amber stay in the race.  Unforunately that is not what happens.

Do you think that shot of Rob & Amber walking is them going to the Pit Stop?  I just can't see them walking even if they thought they were last.

Personally I think it might be after they have already been eliminated.

A few points about Isla Redonda:
  • This page (http://www.patagonia-argentina.com/i/tierradelfuego/ushuaia/parque.htm) notes that the island is a nature preserve and tourism is limited
    Quote
    It is a place almost untouched by human hand. There are two trails, each about 20 minutes in duration that you can walk at your own pace. Remember, protecting the environment is the top priority. It is best if our presence is unnoted and we leave nothing but footprints and take only photos.
    Maybe there are penalties if a team leaves the trail. It makes you suspect that the ferry landing (see below) is an "amazing" sign just there for the racers. Strange that they would take the longer route out of Lapataia rather than the short trip out of Puerto Guarani (Bahia Ensenada).
  • This page (http://www.empa.ch/gaw/gawsis/reports.asp?StationID=40) describes a weather station with a 12-m tower on the island.
  • This page (http://www.polarphilately.com/pposouth.html) has pictures of polar post offices, including Isla Redonda (it's not the "southernmost" p.o. in the world, but...OK  ;D). The Guidos photo is probably just a different viewpoint (I don't recognize that thing in the background).
I think you have it Slowhatch   :waves:

maybe its been painted?  (http://www3.flickr.com/photos/swq/96675874/)
What do you think Slowhatch??

Oh well puddin--we can party for Slowhatch again tomorrow! :happy:


Y'all are too fast for me! I was working on a minor masterpiece about Isla Redonda when Slowhatch posted what I was working on and now I find you and I are following each other around! :lol: :rotf: :lol:

Well here are a few quick other pics-- Some of these may be repeats-- :-\

From Bahía Ensenada, near the southeastern edge of the park, there are boat excursions to Isla Redonda (US$14 pp) from 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. (For ordinary folks who don't have TAR zodiacs)

Quote
Isla Redonda
Isla Redonda means the Round Island. This small island is located in the heart of the Beagle Channel, in front of the Tierra del Fuego National Park. After arriving at Bahia Ensenada, you board a small boat that takes us to the island. Here you find a small base for the Prefectura acional (Coast Guard), and the Worlds End Post Office! The island is surrounded by deep walls that go to 27 meters (88 feet.) There is a dense kelp forest with the typical channel fauna and sometimes sealions will come and join you, curious about what you are doing.

(anybody see those walls?)

And would this site  (http://www.flickr.com/photos/swq/108627917/) help any of you GE guys? I really think this is where they went on that zodiac but you know me  ;D --I'd like a pretty map of there to here!

Some clues on "End of the World" in the web clues:

It refers to Patagonia, Argentina

Quote from: Hakushu8
Possibly the structure that Uchenna/Joyce and Joe/Bill came down from, in what could be the possible Roadblock (or the leg's final task) of finding the Pit Stop.
That makes sense. Caps from the dock show Mirna carrying a route info card, but the card the Guidos open at the p.o. is a Roadblock card (it looks red, anyway). Early guess: the greeter is a park ranger (although technically Redonda isn't a part of the park) or the "postmaster."
In other news, judging by the color of the walls and paneling it looks like D/O are celebrating at Punta Arenas airport (photo source (http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=385630103&size=o)). At the cap of them talking to Joyce might be Tepual airport in Puerto Montt. Note the sloping roof here (http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=375068759&size=o). 
And Thanks to everybody!  :jam:  :cow :conf:

Some clues on "End of the World" in the web clues:

It refers to Patagonia, Argentina
Particularly Isla de Los Estados, there is actually a lighthouse called Faro del fin del mundo ("Lighthouse at the end of the world"), is said to have inspired Jules Verne for his book The Lighthouse at the End of the World.



I think this is it...

A few points about Isla Redonda:
  • This page (http://www.patagonia-argentina.com/i/tierradelfuego/ushuaia/parque.htm) notes that the island is a nature preserve and tourism is limited
    Quote
    It is a place almost untouched by human hand. There are two trails, each about 20 minutes in duration that you can walk at your own pace. Remember, protecting the environment is the top priority. It is best if our presence is unnoted and we leave nothing but footprints and take only photos.
    Maybe there are penalties if a team leaves the trail. It makes you suspect that the ferry landing (see below) is an "amazing" sign just there for the racers. Strange that they would take the longer route out of Lapataia rather than the short trip out of Puerto Guarani (Bahia Ensenada).
  • This page (http://www.empa.ch/gaw/gawsis/reports.asp?StationID=40) describes a weather station with a 12-m tower on the island.
  • This page (http://www.polarphilately.com/pposouth.html) has pictures of polar post offices, including Isla Redonda (it's not the "southernmost" p.o. in the world, but...OK  ;D). The Guidos photo is probably just a different viewpoint (I don't recognize that thing in the background).

SLOWHATCH, ye of little faith on your 1000th post. You believe that the producers of the Amazing Race would actually try to put one over on the public with a special sign. Well, I don't think they did. Please look at the sign below, the photo of which orginated on an Argentinian tourist site that shall be unnamed and note how the sign construction for both signs is typical of the area. The only thing that bothers me about your sign is that it is in English, obviously not the prevelant language for Tierra del Fuego.

Also, I may have the answer to your dilemma about why the access to Isla Redonda was done from Lapataia and not Bahia Ensenada. Lapataia is the official end of Route 3, the Pan American Highway (it says so in my sign besides saying so on the maps). Route 3 is straight north/south on the way to Lapataia so the shortest route in to the water is via Lapataia. To go to Ensenada where the boat crossing is much shorter involves turning east off of route 3 and taking rougher roads.. One further aspect that certainly was decisive is that from Lapataia it allowed the producers to control the boating since they were contracted boats and captains and keep everything out of the public eye. At Ensenada the regular boats there might have a monopoly but certainly would have been more public.

I think that is Kandices blue bandana?

I think is her blue bandana, too. 

The hat that David wears is a Univ. of Kentucky Wildcat hat and they are a deeper, almost royal blue in their teams colors.  I was able to zoom in the picture RT posted :yess: and I don't see any U of Ky blue in the background.

I still think that there is an intersection on this leg. Maybe they do the detour together, then split up and have to do the roadblock alone?

In the shots of Rob and Amber / Dustin and Kandice D&K are wearing different  clothes then they are when they rip the number off the clue box.

Just finished replaying Ep 3. During the Metri task, Eric told Danielle (more than once)  to "stop being a baby." So I'll guess the title comes from E/D.

I totally agree about this one. (Big Papi--close your eyes here...sorry! :kissy:)

Eric was not very nice to Danielle during Fish-block. Now most of us believe that they were not a true couple by the time the race began, but even as just a team-mate he could have been more supportive.

I hope that the CBS clue of 
Quote
**Another team reaches meltdown point when one member feels put upon by another.
does refer to Danielle--it is time she put Eric in his place. While I'm sure that Eric may be frustrated at not having quite as strong of a partner as Jeremy was--Danielle did a very good job at overcoming what was an obvious fear of fish ( :lol:) and Eric needs to be more encouraging towards her. Compared to how badly she raced last time, she is doing much better this time around and deserves some respect from Eric. But I'm afraid that  we may see more of this kind of behavior from Eric, as his track record of respect towards women is --shall we say--just a little lacking!

I definitely do not think that this would be The Cha's, T/I, Romber, or the Guidos based on how they work so well together. U/J or the BQ's--might feel it but are probably too savvy to show it for the cameras. Ch/Mirna--maybe--but they seem to end up supporting each other no matter what--so, IMO, that leaves E/D too.

I just want to say a word in defense of DANIELLE. In these episodes, she strikes me as a no-nonsense type of woman who knows what she wants($500,000, not Eric) and will take a bit of verbal abuse to get it. She holds her tongue most of the time, but when she decided to let it fly she is capable of putting it to wicked use. Remember, in real life this woman is a bartender earning the money to finish a Master's degree. She is smart enough to let Eric think he's totally in control of all decisions for their team, but when she has something important to interject, I'll bet it gets interjected and it will be in situations where Eric has no choice but to listen.

Hey, BIG GRAND-PAPI, you must know her better than we we do from our limited TV exposure. What do you think?

I'm thinking maybe PA for the map task (same place as the telephone poles, right?) There's a magellan statue in the town square, and the map looks similar to the Mercator-Hondius map (http://www.loc.gov/wiseguide/dec02/maps.html).

The question of how the teams get from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia still bothers me. I have been trying to come up with a scenario that gets them there by plane. One that I considered was if all teams could make the scheduled 2pm Saturday departure, but that will be only 3 hours after the earliest possible arrival into Punta Arenas, so that's no good. I have discovered the regular flight schedule for DAP Airlines on Monday and Wednesday:

REGULAR FLIGHTS PROGRAMS
 
Punta Arenas - Ushuaia
Time of Flight: 01:00 Hrs.
Airplane:TwinOtter
Capacity: 20 passengers Summer season
(Nov - Mar)
Monday and Wednesday Leaves Hour
FL-100 PUQ 09:00

Now, that same TwinOtter would be sitting around on Saturday evening Nov. 25 or Sunday morning Nov. 26 available for charters to take 8 teams plus 4 crew along. This may be how the producers get the teams there. They would have to pre-position the other crew with another charter flight or by ferry/road.

Yay! I knew you would be figuring this part out for us! :ty3:

This whole Timeline thing for this episode is absolutely driving me insane. I can't seem to figure it all out...

We know they are in Tierra del Fuego Sun Am to do tasks (Zodiac boats, post office on Isla Redondo, etc) 11/26

The Pitstop promos suggest serious bunching and a major race to the finishmat.

So then what? Pitstop late afternoon/early evening 11/26.

12 hours=depart AM 11/27
36 hours=depart AM 11/28
So why were the Guidos booking tickets with sad faces late on 11/28??
Given what we have seen--they certainly shouldn't be hours behind other teams...

Unless...and here is where they are really messing with me--

Just when I've grieved and given up on Antarctica (take a deep breath...feel the  Cha's Zen...go with the Flo {what the!! :lol:})    :wall:

Could we possibly be going there after all??   Humor me a little....We have 36 hours to play with... and there is the whole something everyone will be talking about thing...

I know, I know--but I'm obsessing about those extra hours...

Lord knows our guys need some serious rest but have we ever had a 48 hour Pitstop??

The guy who first posted the Ushuaia spoiler was a serious fan and spent quite some time looking for them around town, and never found any other evidence of the teams anywhere...so where would they have been? Even in a tent on an island in the park there are loads of other tourists around cause that's the busy time of year...I think they had to keep them moving somewhere...

Okay--feel free to start calling the men in white coats--I can't help it if I'm having ice-y  delusions!  :crazy:

I blame it on Penguin fever! :lol:

More guesswork. Rob's post has all the markers on the same plane, facing the same way. Either he's made a boo-boo or it doesn't matter which way the markers point. What then? Maybe get the Magellan locations, or put those locations in the correct order (or both), then show it to LocalMagellanExpertGuy who says yes or no. It's unrealistic to expect the racers to know that much history, so that's where the map comes in. And maybe the compass as well, although we still haven't seen the other half of the Detour.

 :bow: :bow: :bow:

Thank you so much for those NEW pictures--I thought I looked everywhere and those are new to me--nice to get a different perspective.

Thank you Chateau! now if we  can get a Romber shot we'll know the whole time spread--D/M said that they were only a few minutes behind Ch/Mirna to the mat...
(and weren't those shots of Phil will the sunset on his face (mat chats) gorgeous?  :luvu:

Do we even know what the two Detours are, not to mention the Roadblock?

One thing is build a directional sign, and (maybe) use your compass/map to orient the signs correctly. (IIRC, we see Romber, U/J, and CH/Mirna here)
Or maybe the use the compass/map is a whole separate Detour?
And is the local Magellan expert a descendent, a geographer extraordinaire ;), or what?

Roadblock (we've seen a lot of running around, but no sign of the actual task--right?)

Let's see: catch a penguin--and wrap him for shipping, and have him stamped at the southernmost post office in the world?? :lol:

The only thing I believe looks intersection-y is the shot of E/D and the Cha's in the zodiac together (the BQ's/Romber looking at a map in the Plaza--I don't buy it...)
But I would love to not see an Intersection again--I hate that whole thing!  There is the "one team agrees reluctantly to work with another" thing though...
And it might be fun to see them stuck together on along trip Argentina back to Chile...

Clearly we need more info! ???

Title: Re: EP4: "No Babies on the Race!"
Post by: Slowhatch on March 06, 2007, 07:44:28 PM
I'll make an attempt at the boat order. So far we've seen three distinct groups. The middle group is BQs and Guidos (spots 4 and 5). The last group (I'm assuming this because of the bootlist) is R/A, C/M and U/J. Unless all three went in the hard-shell boat, then C/M went first and the other two teams had to wait. The first two teams are E/D and D/O; the Southern Living photos provided the only good shadows (around noon, Chateau wrote). That leaves Teri/Ian as the wildcard; they're either the third team or the first (with a FF).

So when they are in the zodiacs they are off to Isla Redonda--I was starting to wonder what else they might do...

Other than sightseeing seals, cormorants, and lighthouses there doesn't seem to be a lot.  Unless they have to do some kind of on the water navigation task--that would be cool! They have compasses...

Nice t-shirt on ROB  :hearts:!! LOL

peach! maybe they have to cook lunch or stamp letters for tourists or even count flags or maybe climb the tower :lol:? ( why can't I find a picture of that darn tower!?)

Since I hadn't had lunch yet, I wasn't thinking straight, so I got onto a small zodiac boat in the bay and continued south to Isla Redonda, a very small, very remote little Island that gave me some hint of what's to come. As you approach the island, the first thing that catches your eye are the birds. Everywhere you look, wings are arcing through tight curves against the cliffs. I spotted some cormorants against the rocks. According to Esteban, these are Rocky Cormorants. Who would have guessed? Before I concur with his classification, I'll have to check with one of Professor Rose's kids.

All this hard work made me hungry, so it was a good thing we came into the one-boat dock, where a short hike brought us to the post office/harbor master/restaurant/immigration office/banos of the island. The harbor is surrounded with at least twenty Argentine flags, just in case those pushy Chileans 500 meters South forget where the big boys drew the line on the map years ago.

Thankfully, Carlos, local chef extraordinaire and resident demigod of his own miniature empire, was putting the final touches on our soup and stew. After lunch, it was off to play on the cliffs overlooking the Island's harbor, but that's another story. Next stop, Cabos de Hornos ("Cape Horn") then we're off to that peaceful stretch of sea known for it's tropical breezes and calm seas called Drake's Passage

Fictional roadblocks:
 (we've seen a lot of running around, but no sign of the actual task--right?)

Let's see: catch a penguin--and wrap him for shipping, and have him stamped at the southernmost post office in the world??

cook lunch or stamp letters for tourists or even count flags or maybe climb the tower ? ( why can't I find a picture of that darn tower!?)

"Intersect" in a hammock... :-[

play on the cliffs overlooking the Island's harbor (uh-oh--)

Who else wants to play???


And I've looked all over for that darn tower too---searched forestry and weather towers w/out success....

Peach, that is no doubt the spot!

Here is a way that teams can get from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia by 10 am on the 26th.

CHATEAU, as a former travel agent I can tell you that the connection in Santiago will be below minimums for an international flight. They will not be allowed to book it.
Title: Re: EP4: "No Babies on the Race!"
Post by: apskip on March 06, 2007, 11:17:07 PM
And here is a stab at the timing.

There is a lot of spare time in Ushuaia.  I am sure they tried, but failed to get to Antarctica.  The weather looks like it sucked.  No sunshine.

CHATEAU, my previous information on flights from PUERTO MONTT to PUNTA ARENAS was apparently for a weekday and not valid for a Saturday. The Saturday flights are:

LAN 993 leaves PMC 0920 arrives PUQ 1130
LAN 997 leaves PMC 1100 arrives PUQ 1310

If I follow your increments for the PUNTA ARENA tasks, then teams that make the first flight will be back to the Punta Arenas airport well before the scheduled 1400 nonstop flight to USHUAIA. Teams that don't make the first flight are in serious trouble. Since Charla/Mirna are about an hour away from Puerto Montt airport and leaving the pitstop somewhere around 8am, it's going to be tight for them and also for the Guidos.

And I'm pretty sure about the Romber/BQs time at the Magellan statue around 1:30.  The 2:00 pm flight to USH is too early for them.

MIKE D19,
The working hypothesis has always been that the teams have to get across the Strait of Magellan by ferry to Porvenir and then have U-drive cars from there for 9 hours to get to Ushuaia and then Tierra Del Fuego National Park.

The second hypothesis is that charter flights can get the teams and crew there by Sunday afternoon.

We always assumed that it was too tight for anyone to catch the 1400 flight to Ushuaia, previously because it does not fly on Sunday and now because there is too much time for tasks in Punta Arenas for them to get it when it does fly on Saturday.

You had it right the first time  MikeD19!

Dustin is pulling the number for the ferry to Isla Redonda--looks like there is only room for two teams per ferry.

 I think the 2PM flight they are talking about refers to flights from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia (Ushuaia=Tierra del Fuego=Isla Redonda)
And we still don't know for sure whether or not that flight will have to be a charter one, but it is possible since there are limited scheduled flights that day.

I'm going with the theory (mentioned earlier) that they strayed from the designated pathway to the mat.  See the green tag on a post next to where Charla tastes the earth.  They are told they have to go back or maybe they are tagged with a time penalty.

And that's it for Romber.

This shot was taken on Isla Redonda looking directly south.

I hope for the sake of Amazing Race thats not the case.  Hate to say it Rob and Amber are prolly the most loved team this season, and for no reason [this season only] the most hated, and people will be outraged if they go out like that.   Thats almost as stupid as making Uchenna and Joyce go back for taking the thing on the stick and not the whole stick.   I know if Romber goes out like that [nevermind over Charla and Mirna] i wont be able to watch.  It was hard enough to continue watching AR6 after the Lena and Kristy incident.

Seeing as Romber and Uchenna/Joycce were the first two teams to arrive in the last episode. but both fall to the back of the pack this episode.. is it possible that at the beginning of this leg they both have trouble finding something and work together, but go the wrong way, making them both fall behind drastically?

And is the roadblock before or after the detour? Because if the roadblock is after th detour, and is located at the other side of the boat ride.. it looks almost definite that the last three teams are C/M, U/J, and Romber.. I hope it is really close  :meow:

RED SOX, please consider that you can expect a huge bunching moment probably near the beginning of episode 4 but maybe also a second one toward the end. If the second one does occur, all hell will break loose as all teams scramble to reach the pitstop under great pressure.

So the ferry pairs have to be one of these three:

Case 1 T&I picks #3
E&D + Chas
T&I + BQs
Guido + C&M
Romber + U&J

Case 2 T&I picks #5 or 6
E&D + Chas
Guido + BQs
C&M + T&I
Romber + U&J

Case 3 T&I picks #7 or 8
E&D + Chas
Guido + BQs
Romber + U&J
C&M + T&I

I suspect it is case 1 or 2 since we be fairly sure Romber is in the last boat.

Also, E&D are in the first boat every time.  They are my pick the leg's winners.
Title: Re: EP4: "No Babies on the Race!"

I think # 1 is it because I can't see either Guido beating Dustin in that footrace.   :rotf:


Case 1 T&I picks #3
12:00 departure  E&D + Chas
12:20 departure  T&I + BQs
12:40 departure  Guido + C&M
1:00 departure  Romber + U&J

The actual times may be separated by more time.  In fact, from the tide variation in the pics I would guess more than an hour from BQs to Romber.

Hey! The Cha's are in that boat too--why can't they be first?

Is the fall all misdirection? Could Charla be hurt?

We never saw it coming? Any other ideas besides Romber elimination? (Not that I don't think they are not out--just maybe something else too? In medicine, we call this 'looking for zebras'!) :lol:

And if they are all separated by 20 minutes, how the heck do we end up with a foot race to the finish? Are some teams' brains really more than 20 minutes slower?

I take it as Phil is telling us that Romber are physical not intelligent and it looks like Mirna won't help him with the RB, remember the forshadowing with the Guido's forgetting half their clue last week? and Mirna wondering why they should help them? then the Guido's pass them as Shmirna goes back for the keys in the tent..* The Curse of Shmirna lives on * :sera:

CHATEAU, my take on it is that ROB fails to complete the ROADBLOCK as fast as either MIRNA or UCHENNA. We do not see any of the other teams around, so it is probable that they were in the final boat (which has already been predicted) and that all other teams completed this Flags/Letters luck ROADBLOCK rather quickly.

I just  :groan: realized that there is no reason that they have to be paired in the boats.

So, farming for drama here, I bet Charla & Mirna are in the last boat all alone.  Teri & Ian arrived at some earlier time and have already gone to Isla Redonda.  There is only 20 min separating them from slow Rob.  He chokes the letter sorting and Mirna gets it done first.  Footrace.  Or not.  Just he knows they lost so they walk in a dilatory fashion, hand in hand, to the mat.

Not to be a downer, still fighting the cancer I got diagnosed with last year. I went thru Chemo, then radiation and now I have surgery set for 4/18...then another round of chemo.
I need to get my reality fix by then.
How have YOU been? :yess: :yess: :yess: for the link, LOVE it!

I've hunted for that porte cochere but haven't found it yet; as a hunch, I'd say the T/I cap looks more like PA than Ushuaia.

I truly honestly cannot believe they are being eliminated this Sunday.  What a shame. They were good racers.

I am so shocked that Romber get eliminated so early!!  Not to mention, that means Shmirna and Mirna make it longer than them!  Dang!!  I don't think the show will be as entertaining without Rob!  BIG BUMMER!!   :'(

It looks like D/O in that cap still have the giant PA street map with them; they must have done well and gotten an early connection/charter seats/etc.

So Uchenna & Joyce either make the same flight, or not or mess up somewere on the way to Tierra del Fuego?

I'm reasonably certain that D/O alone, holding the map, is at PA. But my hunch is that D/O with Joyce is at PM (El Tepual airport); I haven't found any good photos of the inside, but note the sloping roof here (http://rides.webshots.com/photo/1309393952047881045wFKuOz?vhost=rides).

Take a peek at the Redonda cap; is that Yellowjacket standing in the doorway?  ;D

OK, I'm certain now. As well as the sloping roof, compare the side windows (source (http://rides.webshots.com/photo/1309388166047881045uYuZWs?vhost=rides))

Have any of the other eliminated All Star teams been on Regis & Kelly?  If not, sorry to say but that may be an indication for sure that it's Rob & Amber that are being eliminated.  I checked the website, but not real close.  At least last Monday a TAR All-Star team was not on.

If I recall right only the winners appear on Regis but TAR7 Rob and Amber were on the show, not Uchenna & Joyce. For some reason I think Mary & David were on TAR10 but am not sure?

I didn't word that right.  I should have put "first 3 eliminated" instead of "other".

What I was trying to convey is that it's not usual for a non winning TAR team to be on Regis.  Eliminated non winning TAR teams are on Early Show.  For a non winner to be on Regis and Kelly seems like BIG news and Rob & Amber being eliminated so early in the show is BIG news.

That almost screams Rob and Amber aloud for all to hear.  No other team would be picked up by Regis at this stage of the game; the winner maybe in May, but not now.  Rob and Amber have some pizzazz right now.

Could the ROADBLOCK task take place at the Southern Most Postoffice DEL MUNDO (of the world) be that one team member must find a number of letters addressed to each of the countries represented by flags on the walls?

Or has someone already commented on this?

That appears to be the case from watching the video of Rob and Mirna in the post office. The video shows Charla attempting to help Mirna and Rob says "You can't be talking to her" whereupon Mirna tells Rob to "Shut the hell up?" That editing may lead one to believe that the race to the mat will be between Romber and Mirna, not U/J, dragging Charla through the mud.

eta: This may be why Phil says the race will "change" forever? Maybe the roadblock will have to be performed by the person doing it without any help from their partner.

Post by: xRyannex on March 10, 2007, 11:11:45 AM
I definitely see the finish coming between Schmirna and Romber.

There has been no speak between the rivalry of Romber and U/J, so 95% of viewers won't even remember their feud.

But Charla/Mirna makies it such a more entertaining ending.

Romber, the team with all 1st places vs. Schmirna, who have done horrible this season

events leading up to it:
-taxi cab altercation
-charla confronting amber on the dock
-mirna telling rob to shut the hell up

And in the end, the underdogs will beat Romber; thus, opening the door for a new team to win the race and the race will be forever changed!

at least that's what I'm predicting from the previews..

Looks like they are painting the names of places in the world on sign markers, then they must be mounted on a pole and pointed in the correct direction based upon the info they have and the compass they get for the task.

Looks to me like one half of a DETOUR; what is the other task?

ROADBLOCK is the post office mail sorting.

CHATEAU, you probably know this already: What the DETOUR is Punta Arenas apears to about is taking information from a map of the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan(almost surely the round-the-world one), painting individual signs of places on that voyage, placing them on a tall pole, and orienting them using the compass to have each of them point in the correct direction. It may also involve having the distance from Punta Areans to that place on each sign. The total effect will be quite similar to the sign pole in your photo.

About the distance pole task I had originally made a bad call that Charla was hauling the pole from the Magellan statue.

From the times I think they go from the pole task down to the Magellan statue.  Plus that is the direction the Chas and E&D are going.

Charla probably just has to go up a set of stairs and a path.

Also, I don't see the compass playing a role yet in the pole task.  I think they just have to get the East/West part right.  Romber has it 'incorrect' with all pointers going to the East.  No distance values are given on the signs either.  Dumbed down don't you think?

From what I can tell the 2 flags in Rob's picture are Canadian and Italian.

Nautilus (http://www.nautilus.cl/) is #803 Boliviana, which makes the map walk a 4-block straight shot from the plaza.

What made the signpost task so hard?  All you had to do was follow the red line and arrow on the map and write down the places in order as they appeared.  And how could you misspell a name when it was printed right there in front of your nose?

That was a pretty long gap between charters - three hours!  Didn't give the bottom feeders much of a chance. Usually, in the past, the gap was only 30 minutes or less.  The flight itself took 2:45.  So the five teams on the second flight did not arrive at Playa Larga until after 1:45PM.

How much longer can Schmirna keep it up?  They keep coming in next to last, but they are following the cardinal rule of TAR: Keep one team behind you!

Rob and Amber confirmed on TES this morning that Sequesterville was in Acapulco.  They had three weeks there to sleep late, eat good food, and bask on the white sands of Acapulco Bay while the other racers were chasing rats, grabbing what sleep they can when the can, and grabbing food on the run.  Not bad deal for the losers!

Were they giving something away when they said that we should watch the Beauty Queens since they really do run a good race?

And finally, Puddin's Boot List holds true for another week!

GMAN, I agree with you but on the FINISH LINE Rob claimed that the directions for the task were not as clear as Phil stated them on TV. He said that the directions given indicated that the direction of the signs were important (vs. Phil saying they weren't) and the spelling accuracy was not mentioned. It is instructive to note that with a basic knowledge of map reading a team could easily get the west or east pointing direction correct. Then the key was to gete the correct starting point, which Rob/Amber had but Uchenna/Joyce struggled with before eventually getting it right. Copying the place names one by one with correct spelling is a test of attention to detail, which is why Amber should have been doing that and not Rob. Dustin/Kandice appeared to be totally clueless on how the do the task correctly. My hat is off to Uchenna/Joyce, the only team to do this right, although it did cost them a place on the first charter flight versus the teams who had done the other DETOUR.

On the subject of Squesterville, just see this week's ELIMINATION STATION video.

Question:  I know Eric read the episodes quote.  But who actually wrote it?  Was it Dani or Jeremy.  I think Dani.

And and hey, Puddin the Hippies even got a little shout out from them in their letter.

Fwiw, the pit stop restaurant looks like a match (chairs, windows, drapes, chandeliers, wooden columns) for the Temaukel restaurant (photo source (http://reservations.lodging.com/servlet/reservations.PropertyInformationXML?propcode=GTA;252647&remote=ASE&servepop=)) at the Hotel Del Glaciar (http://www.giganetglobal.com/english/index.asp).

SLOWHATCH, I think you've got it on decor match. Also, that would be an excellent place from which to do a glacier activity since it is at the foot of the Martial Glacier 3 km from downtown Ushuaia and 3km from the Airport.

Here's an interesting tidbit from a RealityNewsOnline interview on 3/12/07 of Rob and Amber:

Rob: I never found the letter. After it was all said and done, and Charla & Mirna were gone and crossed the finish line, I got the letter off of somebody else’s table. I never found the letter in my bag.

This supports the theory that I saw on another forum that there had to be 16 letters (two for each team) in every mail bag. It is probable that the letters written by the teams from the same seasons were copied so that they were identical in each bag, but maybe each of those teams actually wrote 16 letters.
