Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Neobie on July 30, 2009, 07:33:16 AM
One observation about the use of >36h Pit Stops in TAR 14: they're less frequently invoked than in earlier seasons, and have only been used on complicated long-haul travel:
Bran to Krasnoyarsk, via Bucharest and Moscow
Novosibirsk to Jaipur, via Moscow and Delhi

Assuming the hotel sighting was in Dubai, teams checked in on the morning of the 27th and only checked out two days later, on the morning of the 29th. This means Phil was unable to get a flight out on the 27th to film his next stand-ups, on the 28th. Instead, he's probably doing his narrations on the 29th, while the teams find a way to fly in.

(Why the hotel is likely to be in Dubai: a Dubai leg on the 27th and an extra leg on the 28th means Phil wouldn't have a full day to film his stand-ups - and there really isn't much space for an quick leg near Dubai.)

Flights on the 27th going to Paris (1500-2010), Heathrow (1545-2015), Munich (1630-2100) and Moscow (1740-2055) means you can get to practically any point in Europe before noon the next day. Africa next?



African cities unlikely to host next leg:
Nairobi, Cairo, Asmara, Addis Ababa, Johannesburg (direct from Dubai)
Luanda (via Paris); Abuja, Lagos (via London)

Post by: Neobie on July 31, 2009, 11:40:00 AM
If Dubai comes immediately before the Netherlands as per Dutch Samadhi, I'll stick my neck out and say that there are probably two legs in the UAE.

Teams should be checking into Dubai on the morning of the 27th. That frees Phil to run off to the Netherlands either on the Dubai-Amsterdam direct (5Y 9989, 1420-1920), or a later Dubai-Munich-Amsterdam connection (EK 51, 1630-2100; CL 4690, 0645-0815). Either will get Phil into the Netherlands by the morning of the 28th.

Why then hold the teams until the morning of the 29th? They'd arrive in the late afternoon, and start racing proper on the 30th. Would Phil need two whole days to film his stand-ups?

Unless they just all wanted an extra day off, here's what the evidence suggests...
26 Jul: Teams arrive in Dubai at night
27 Jul: Teams race UAE I, check in morning
28 Jul: Teams race UAE II, check in morning; Phil flies to Netherlands in afternoon
29 Jul: Phil films stand-ups; teams fly to Netherlands and arrive in late afternoon
30 Jul: Teams race Netherlands, check in morning



And here's an educated guess based on timeline clues...
Leg 1: Los Angeles to Japan I (20 Jul)
Leg 2: Japan II (21 Jul)
Leg 3: Ho Chi Minh City (23 Jul)
Leg 4: Phnom Penh (25 Jul)
Leg 5: UAE I (27 Jul)
Leg 6: UAE II (28 Jul)
Leg 7: Netherlands (30 Jul)

Israel is looking more and more like something other than OUR race. The only way I can see it still fitting is if there is a flight that can get teams into Amsterdam very early in the AM of 7/30, or... we have an abbreviated pitstop in Israel (more of the 8 hour variety), allowing teams to leave the evening of 7/29. Thoughts?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Neobie on July 31, 2009, 11:56:52 AM
Depends on where SteffieSunrise was. If she was in Dubai, Israel is out. A 29th morning check-out from Dubai corresponds with a 30th race day in the Netherlands. (Unless they did the entire Israel leg in darkness and THEN had a TBC...)

If she was in Israel, however, we could make this work, although Phil would have a tough time trying to keep pace...
27 Jul: Check in Dubai morning, check out evening, fly to Tel Aviv on RJ 619/RJ 342 (2210-0700) via Amman
28 Jul: Race in Israel, check in anytime
29 Jul: Check out Israel morning (SteffieSunrise sighting), fly to Amsterdam on numerous flights
30 Jul: Race in Netherlands

Coming from Dubai could be intrepreted as "was in Dubai"...we need to be cautious in assuming this means coming DIRECTLY from Dubai I think...

Italy remains a possibility for inbetween.

They would have to have only 2 hours of racing in Rome in order to fit that in with the standard 12 hour Pit Stop (EK 97 TO = 9:25 am AR = 1:45 pm).  It's crazy tight!  I vote for the next leg.

I'll get a more exact time of the morning for the windmill scene ...

Done.  They were at the windmill in the 8 to 9 am time frame.  So even it they did catch the earliest flight from Rome to AMS (KL 1590 TO = 6:15 am AR =  8:45 am) they would not be able to drive to the windmill in time.

Oh, And I guess we are still hanging on confirmation of SteffieSunrise's hotel location.  If that is someplace Italian then Italy before Netherlands becomes much more possible.   :lol:

I must be missing something...  although Italy is absolutely total spec,

If Israel should turn out to not be valid, then what would prevent teams from leaving Dubai late on the 27th or early on the 28th, and taking any of the Italian flights (Venice/Milan/Rome) that arr around 130-2 PM, and doing a leg, and then dep for ??Amsterdam  sometime on 7/29??

Steffi is English, so could also substitute in anywhere in the UK or Europe as well...

Seems like there is plenty of time, so why are we only looking at Dubai? I must be missing something....

The only way I can make Italy fit into our racer's timeline is if Steffie's Hotel was in Italy.  Is possible?   :duno:

I guess one working assumption is that teams came directly from Dubai. Dutch Samadhi, can we check if something got lost in the translation? Does the description mean they passed through Dubai some time back, or they came directly from there?

If we don't assume that Dubai was immediately before the Netherlands, here're the two possibilites on what happened:

Possibility A
27 Jul: Teams race Dubai, Phil races to Leg 6 in afternoon
28 Jul: Teams race Leg 6, Phil flies to Netherlands in afternoon
29 Jul: Teams spotted by Steffi and fly to Netherlands, Phil films Netherlands
30 Jul: Teams race Netherlands

Possibility B
27 Jul: Teams race Dubai, Phil flies to Netherlands in afternoon
28 Jul: Teams idle, Phil idle
29 Jul: Teams spotted by Steffi and fly to Netherlands, Phil films Netherlands
30 Jul: Teams race Netherlands

Possibility B would be strange, simply because there's an extra day that no one really needs. Possibility A could accomodate an extra leg in the UAE, Israel OR Italy. But going by TAR 14's pattern of Phil doing back-to-back races only on extremely short legs, I'm leaning towards the leg being in the UAE. Phil would have little time to film his stand-ups otherwise.

They raced the Netherlands on the 29th just after they returned. I saw it happen.

Post by: apskip on August 01, 2009, 09:18:36 AM
The implications of that statement are that teams landed in Amsterdam early enough to be able to race before arriving Groningen. Groningen is over 2 hours away from Schiphol Airport and the late afternoon arrivals of flights connecting from Dubai to Amsterdam in 7 different cities would not have allowed serious daylight racing on Wednesday July 29. My conclusion is that Dutch Samadhi's guidance effectively means teams would have to take a midnight to 2am flight from Dubai to reach AMS in the morning. Here are the choices:

KL428 DXB AMS 0005 0515
AF525 DXB CDG 0040 0545 connecting to AF1140 CDG AMS 0650 0805
LH631 DXB FRA 0125 0555  connecting to KL1762FRA AMS 0710 0830
LX243 DXB ZRH 0140 0625 connecting to  LX724  ZRH AMS 0720 0855
OS840 DXB VIE 0145 0605  connecting to OS371  VIE AMS 0725 0925

Here is your post from another thread:

I've heard people saying they came from Schiphol on the very morning that the event took place so on thursday they would have arrived.

Again Good luck

I can't find any flights that would arrive early enough for the teams to make the 2 hour drive to Vierhuizen by 9 am.

Maybe they arrived the night before at Schiphol Airport and had to wait for the "garage to open" at 6 AM.  That would explain why we see 5 cars there with an expected 6th car to arrive shortly.  And a helicopter in the air.  It would be a bunch point that sets up the teams for multi-team shots on the bikes.

So Ericka and Brian got lost on the way to the windmill?  I hope they can dance well with wooden shoes!

Chateau,
Arrival at 0505 at Schiphol doesn't do it? I would think that it does.
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Chateau d If on August 01, 2009, 12:37:04 PM
Well I did just find this.  Don't know why I missed it the first time.

KL 428 from Dubai at 12:05 am July 30th directly to AMS landing at 5:20 am.

What did you have in mind for 5:05 am arrival, Shanghai?

But anyway, remember we have to accommodate the fact that SteffieSunrise reported the team was in Dubai, seeking flight information at about 7:50 am on the 29th .  So why would they take so long to get to AMS?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: apskip on August 01, 2009, 08:00:50 PM
If we take Dutch Amadhi seriously, then here is a plausible (although not necessarily correct) string of hypotheses:

1. We are talking for some teams but not all starting racing in Netherlands during the day of July 29, not 30.

2. Teams that reached a 12 hour pit stop in Dubai well before noon on July 28 are the only ones that have a shot at making the 0005 flight DXB AMS. they arrive nonstop at 0520 and start transportation and tasks in the Netherlands.

3. Other teams would have access to the morning flights from Dubai to Amsterdam. That would allow a sighting on July 29 at 0750 and still making a 0925 departure to Rome (EK097 0925 1345 connecting to AZ132 FCO AMS 1445 1725) or a 0955 departure to Vienna (EK127 0955 1345 connecting to KL1846 VIE AMS 1500 1705).
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines

But these racing activities in the Netherlands:  

1)  drive Mercedes to Windmill in Vierhuizen
2)  ride bike to  Zoutkamp
3)  perform detour
4)  etc

did not occur on Wednesday the 29th.  They happened on Thursday the 30th.  It says so in the video if you understand Dutch!

They'll probably leave tonight [31 Jul] From 16:00 onwards from schiphol.

Sounds like an extended Pit Stop to get them ready for Stockholm on 1 Aug, with Phil filming his stand-ups in Sweden on the 31st. After checking the teams in, Phil would have the 2nd to film Estonia, while the teams take the night ferry for a race day on the 3rd. I'm guessing just one leg for Stockholm?

See some sort of pattern?

Mauritius not possible timeline-wise. From Dubai on the 27th, to Mauritius the same day, and back to Dubai to be seen by SteffiSunrise on the morning of the 29th? :lol:

Now a TBC in Stockholm... that's interesting. We'd be fitting another leg in there somewhere to make it work though. (Leg 8 on the 1st, Leg 9 Stockholm on the 2nd, Leg 10 Tallinn on the 3rd.) So the question is... are we going to have 11 or 12 legs?

Just space for one last leg before the trip back to the States. Eurasia race again? :duno:

Mauritius not possible timeline-wise. From Dubai on the 29th, to Mauritius, then to the Netherlands by the morning of the 30th?

Now a TBC in Stockholm... that's interesting. We'd be fitting another leg in there somewhere to make it work though. So the question is... are we going to have 11 or 12 legs?

Eurasia race again? :duno:

I agree, Mauritius this time again=no!  TBC in Stockholm=yes, Eurasia race again=no.  Africa is long overdue since TAR12.

At least one more city after Tallin or perhaps two.  Where?  Looking at the map it would be an ideal time to finally get to Prague or Bratislava (two cities on our someday must visit list.) Could also jump all the way to Africa: Algers, Morocco?

I think Dubai was two legs because we obviously need 11 legs so this is what everything points to:

L.A to Japan
Japan to Japan
Japan to HCMC
HCMC to Phnom Penh
Phnom Penh to Dubai
Dubai to Dubai
Dubai to The Netherlands
Netherlands to Sweden
Sweden to Estonia
Estonia to Prague
Prague to Las Vegas

You all keep ignoring the Leg in Masada, Israel even though you all saw pictures of a cluebox and Jeeps with the american production logo and at the same date a leg was "missing" on your timeline. How come??? What am I missing here?

I think your problem is that they were actually spotted in the Netherlands in the Morning and it would have been impossible from Israel.

With the timeline happening now... can we infer/speculate that there are no TBC legs and this season is technically shorter than TAR14 by an episode?

Can we suspect as well that they could be able to drive from Dubai to Qatar/Bahrain?

Post by: apskip on August 09, 2009, 06:06:08 AM
Mooyou,

Yes, it looks like AR15 is back to an 11 episode season, just like most recent seasons except AR14. No, you cannot assume that there is no TBC in AR15. At this point, we do not know. TBCs do not have to be in the same city. Witness AR10's Finland combined with Kiev TBC episodes.

Oh yeah, I remember that... Another thing that came into my mind that TAR might/could get TARI's editing focusing some legs into two episodes, which could prolong it's airing and reducing the legs? Could that be a plausible thing as well?

Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: apskip on August 09, 2009, 12:27:26 PM
Chateau,

I had hypothesized that teams would get to Groningen from Bremen airport. Unfortunately, the schedules do not work out compare to the very efficient flight Dubai to Hamburg (EK59 DXB HAM 0900 1345 as identified by you arriving ). To fly from Hamburg to Bremen, a distance of 59 miles, requires a connection in Munich, Frankfurt or Amsterdam, none of which make any sense. It is easier for teams to just drive Hamburg to Groningen with their German-supplied Mercedes vehicles for  the 144 mile trip to Groningen. To fly to Amsterdam and still have a bout a 110 mile (93 miels from central Amsterdam plus the extra distance from Schiphol) trip just makes no sense to me, and I suspect also to world Race Productions.

I suggest you alter your timeline accordingly. With customs clearance into the EC, security etc. teams could be driving from Hamburg airport before 1445 and arrive Groningen before 1745. Your scenario is not feasible since with a 1625 arrival and the same 1 hour customs/security assumption and a 2.2 hour drive it will be after 1837 before any team could arriva via flying Hamburg to Amsterdam.
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on August 09, 2009, 02:31:10 PM
As far as our source understands, teams arrived in Gronigen in the mid morning, NOT the night before. (Although nothing says they couldn't have arr Netherlands the night before and did not arr Gronigen till that AM.) He also understood that teams arrived from Dubai, but has been unable to clarify whether this meant directly from Dubai, or just had been in Dubai previously.


You all keep ignoring the Leg in Masada, Israel even though you all saw pictures of a cluebox and Jeeps with the american production logo and at the same date a leg was "missing" on your timeline. How come??? What am I missing here?

I actually agree with you on this. The sighting in Masada is excellent, particularly since we have had no further sightings of what could have been TARI,  AND since we KNOW that TARA is not yet filming, and we also believe that TARI is not yet filming.

We have teams seen the night of July 26th in Dubai with an eyewitness who says they were doing a sign up sheet, for a task/s on the 27th. So the (first?) Dubai leg could be completed  as soon as  midday the 27th. If there is a pitstop with an early AM release on the 28th...OR if this were a TBC leg, teams CAN be in Israel in time for the Masada sighting, and can be in Amsterdam by very early AM on the  30th for the Gronigen leg (I have posted a possible Tel Aviv to AMS via Brussels flight elsewhere). We have the time July 28-30 for another leg without doubt.

SO what is the difficulty?

We also have a Twiitter report from Steffi, whose previous timeline has been very accurate, that she saw teams in her hotel the morning of the 29th IN DUBAI, asking about flights/the airport.  Clearly teams cannot be both in Dubai and in Israel.

My hope is that once we can reach Steffi, we can clarify this. It is our understanding that she has no Internet right now, but trust me, she has a lot of questions waiting for her when she does, and we can only hope that she will reply. If her dates are off, or if she meant to say the day before, then Masada is absolutely possible. If she stands by the date of 7/29 for her sighting, then we need to choose.

So the choice appears to be between a second Dubai leg, a leg somewhere else entirely (doubtful), or a documented (photo and permits) of Masada.

For me, Masada is much more appealing and I hope that we can reconcile the confusion to accept this 100%.

But we are NOT ignoring it, there has been a lot of Detective conversation and research on this, nothing has yet been ruled out.

I would also like to add here that right now all evidence points to the Mauritius info being shared as a false spoiler, possibly quite deliberate. We also hope to have further documentation of that before long.

Does that help explain a little?? ???

Peach:

I was following the assumption laid down by Chateau for all-July 29 action. If you relax that a bit, I have a better flight than the middle of the night:

TLV AMS KL462   0505 0905
TLV AMS LY337   0600 1005

There is also a nonstop from TLV BRU SN7000 0700 0805. I think your SN3292 TLV BRU 0100 0500 is a better option because it allows for connection in Brussels to Bremen on Olt-ostfriesische Lufft 161 0810 0930. I have never heard of this airline and it has a 0% on-time record for that flight, but it is listed with a reputable source.

We need to place teams at the windmill pretty early I believe..I think by 10?? SO allowing for driving times they need to be at either AMS or Bremen very early, I think flights arr 930-10 may well be too late for that.

But I do LOVE the idea of Bremen!

I will go ask Dutch to please reconfirm the time he first saw the teams, hopefully that might help us here.

Post by: Chateau d If on August 10, 2009, 01:43:32 AM
Chateau,

Wow! There are some perfect fits for what we are looking for:

Incoming Dubai to Amman choice of 2 flights landing 20 minutes apart:
 DBX AMM  EK901 0725 0920 or RJ613 0730 0940

Tel Aviv to Frankfurt: TLV FRA LH6871645 2000
connecting to            FRA BRE LH350 2125 2220

An alternative is Tel Aviv to Amesterdam TLV AMS LY339 1705 2110

Bremen is actually closer to Amsterdam and has a lower probability of an airport siting (because nobosy would expect the Amazing Race there), so I prefer the first approach but the second gives a precious 20 minutes extra on a very tight timetable for teams to do their land routes to and from Massada.

As Professor Henry Higgins was fond of saying, "I think we've got it."

The Amman to Masada to Tel Aviv portion would be by self-drivecar or taxi. The only almost-certainty is using the Allenby/King Hussein gate to go into East Jerusalem, since it is one of only 3 border crossings between Israel and Jordan and the other 2 are far north and far south of it.



I now have the land distances associated with my post above.

The distance from Amman to Jerusalem is only 45 miles, but it can take up to 5 hours or longer. I have to assume that World Race Productions has obtained prior authorization for that to be expedited, so let's say 1.5 hours for this portion.

From Jerusalem south to Massada on the west bank of the Dead Sea is 90km, or 55 miles. Say 1.5 hours for that segment since the first part is very urban and congested.

Assume that the tasks at Massada will take one hour and end in a TBC.

From Massada northwest to Ben Gurion Airport is 133 km or 83 miles. Let's say 1.5 hours for that segment since it is mostly rural.

The resulting timeline is:

ready to go from Amman International Airport 1020
across King Hussein/Allenby Gate 1150
arrive Massada 1320
leave Massada 1420
arrive Ben Gurion 1550
departure of LH687 to Frankfurt 1645

There is no slack in these assumptions. That is barely enough time for teams to buy tickets adn get onto LH687, but it could potentially have been done.

Comments from those who have driven around Israel more recently than me (1981) will be appreciated, particualrly on whether the border crossing could be expedited and how long it takes to drive in those parts of Israel.

I think we can fit this in.  But there is one thing that still bothers me about making it fit and that is that the original spoiler said that he was going for a dawn climb of the Masada when he saw the racer's jeeps with flags.  So that would be dawn on the 29th.  Well, we had a team in Dubai at that time.  Or if it was dawn on the 30th how do we get the teams up to Vierhuizen by 10 am?

Based solely on one tweet from Steffi. Who could have her dates wrong somehow?? Maybe it was the 28th?

I don't know...but one tweet vs photos+film permits from Masada.... I'm thinking Masada.

And you can get to Vierhuizen by 10 AM :

re Masada:

I just checked flights from Tel Aviv on the 30th.

There is a direct flight to Brussels dep110am arr 505 ish which could connect to a shuttle to AMS, wh actually arrived at 712  AM. So logistically tight, but possible?

July 27th should have been taskday/Pitstop in Dubai, allowing teams to depart Dubai on the 28th.



Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Chateau d If on August 10, 2009, 10:12:46 AM
Steffi's post times are solid and not subject to mis-interpretation.  The only wiggle room is what time did they 'check out' of their hotel.  Maybe it was at oh-dark-hundred on the 29th and so the team she saw had access to very early flights out of DXB.  Also, her older M/F couple who teach skydiving in America could be the last team and way behind the pack.  The lead teams may have left Dubai the evening before.

Then we could have the pack doing the Masada at dawn on the 29th. And then a-la-apskip:

leave Massada 1420
arrive Ben Gurion 1550
departure of LH687 to Frankfurt 1645
Tel Aviv to Frankfurt: TLV FRA LH6871645 2000
connecting to            FRA BRE LH350 2125 2220

And, on the morning of the 30th, they get access to the Mercedes and they drive to Vierhuizen.

How does that sound?   :tup:

I have some new information which relates to the possibilities. There are 3 ways to get from Dubai to either Amman or Tel Aviv on the evening of Tuesday July 28.

The best by far is nonstop RJ619 DXB AMM 2110 2320

Later arriving in Amman is GF567 DXB BAH 1820 1905 connecting Bahrain to GF5809 BAH AMM 2105 2345

Earlier but using a more circuitous route to Tel Aviv is EK131 DXB DME 1740 2255 connecting Moscow Domodedovo to LY616 DME TLV 2355 0255+1. This gets in well after midnight, which might minimize the hazards of being sighted in Ben Gurion Airport.

Correction:

The flight info above is incorrect after receiving some further info.

Instead:

Quote
the airport airline and management staff were setting up the markers and stuff for the show when the racers would leave
which the source believes to be on Sunday (July 26).
Quote
So they were apparently just showing the stuff and talking about the "Hollywood movie" that was going to be shot in the airport. 
 


Which leaves the possibility of them arriving by bus very much alive. Bus 6 hours and USD 12.

More information on the possiblity of bus travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh:
 6.30am, 8am, 9am and 11am

These buses reportedly take 7 hours including border crossing, a minor variance from Peach's information.

Was slacking off for a while, now trying to follow Apskip's posts all over the board...

But do we have any evidence to suggest land travel from Amman to Israel?

Dubai looks like it's going to end by noon on the 27th, which would give Phil time to catch:
Dubai to Amman, EK 903 1400-1555
Amman to Tel Aviv, RJ 340 2200-2045
and the opportunity to take the 28th to do his stand-ups.

If teams race Israel on the 29th (jeep permits for 29/30), and Phil takes this evening flight to Amsterdam:
Tel Aviv to Amsterdam, LY 339 1705-2110

Does it give him enough time to film his stand-ups before teams arrive to race on the 30th? Why not delay the teams as per usual practice for a Netherlands leg on the 31st?

Post by: apskip on September 03, 2009, 08:50:25 AM
Neobie,

Let's focus on your suggestion of what happens after the plane lands in Amman. It is less than 2 hours from Amman to the Allenby/KingHussein Bridge into Jerusalem and from there it is 28 miles closer from Jerusalem to Massada as it is from Ben Gurion Airport to Massada. So tell me why they would incur 3 additional hours by waiting around for the flight to Tel Aviv, which is notorius as a place where teams would have been spotted on arrival, but maybe not on departure. It is not logical for them to have flown to Tel Aviv although it is eminently logical for them to have flown from Tel Aviv to Amsterdam or Bremen.

Let me remind all of my primary hypothesis, which will be repeated from multiple posts:

#1
Incoming Dubai to Amman choice of 2 flights landing 20 minutes apart:
 DBX AMM  EK901 0725 0920 or RJ613 0730 0940

Tel Aviv to Frankfurt: TLV FRA LH6871645 2000
connecting to            FRA BRE LH350 2125 2220

An alternative is Tel Aviv to Amsterdam TLV AMS LY339 1705 2110

#2
If you relax that(the assumption that teams must arrive Groningen by evening of July 29 a bit, I have a better flight than the middle of the night:

TLV AMS KL462   0505 0905
TLV AMS LY337   0600 1005

There is also a nonstop from TLV BRU SN7000 0700 0805.

Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on September 03, 2009, 12:16:04 PM
Apskip, arriving AMS at 9-10AM would not give teams time to arrive in Groningen when we know they did.

Having flown into Schipol every three months for a number of years, I think I can say that it would be nearly impossible to get from the gate through the VERY tight security to the car rentals in under 45 minutes, and that would be very very tight right there.

It was a Sunday AM, at that time the normal heading north out of Schipol traffic would have probably been reasonable, unlike on a weekday, where it could easily take an extra hour to get out of AMS.

Looks as though  approx 2 hours driving time to get there per Mapquest:
http://europe.mapquest.com/directions/europe.adp?go=1&do=nw&rmm=1&mo=ma&2si=gaz_nt&un=m&1rc=A5XAX&cl=EN&qq=IEaKSvfsRsqsKVIK9PYXF6r%252f8Oan9FHTPsKXSeKII3KnPmsGmWIZpMEGSjP2cPvf59BY22%252f6OIEYXQr6imiUVXoQDiKc4EBiGnGuku38Wt4hU4sfQlpbhG%252blMntMUvQc0cnsJ8jWJqh9w4P%252b8EySvW4mVzGbMMA0bewIc99X8%252bp5SskDOFO1ijsaTdBBQsTcDcfFoEYYmIpiYPRxwGlUcw%253d%253d&ct=EU&r=f&1si=gaz_nt&2rc=A5XAX&did=1251997705&rsres=1&1y=NL&1a=&1c=Amsterdam&1z=&panelbtn=1&2y=NL&2a=&2c=Groningen&2z=


So here is another alternative flight plan that would get them there earlier:


SN3292 dep TLV 8-30 0110 and arr Brussels BRU at 0502 (scheduled 500AM)

WA 1720 dep BRU 8-30 0615 and arr AMS 0706 (scheduled 0715) This is a KLM CityHopper flight

That would put them in Groningen at about 10 or perhaps slightly before.

Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: apskip on September 03, 2009, 12:55:16 PM
Peach,

There are several things to consider:
1. July 30 was Thursday, not Sunday. This means an Amsterdam rush hour and extra time required for your route, as MapQuest does not allow for time of day in its calculations.

2. Let me repeat again:
I think your SN3292 TLV BRU 0100 0500 is a better option because it allows for connection in Brussels to Bremen on Olt-ostfriesische Lufft OL161 0810 0930.

This start with the  flight that you propose and goes to Bremen rather than Schiphol airport. Reasons to do that in spite of it arriving about one hour later are:
a. Bremen is about 40 miles closer to Groningen and a trip there should not take more than one hour. That puts teams in at 11am vs. your 10am
b. The marked cars driven by AR15 teams have German license plates. I beleive that it's possible but much less likely to get them at Schiphol than at Bremen
c. There is a much lower probability of being sighted going through Bremen than through Schiphol.

How important is that one hour?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on September 03, 2009, 01:10:19 PM
Duh...what year was I looking at? :groan: Thursday it is.

I have driven that route multiple times and early AM traffic getting from Schipol north would be horrendous, not as bad as heading towards Den Hague, but bad. Just to get on the road north, after that they would be going against the traffic flow and could speed right up. IIRC, the speed limit would be 110km, ~66mph.

So I love your route, love the car explanation, but I think the timing is pretty crucial. I know Dutch saw production around 10, let me see if I can pin down the exact time he saw teams.

WRP has a thing about using Mercedes cars instead of rental cars.  The "borrowed or donated" cars come directly from Stuttgart headquarters of MB, so they would have German license plates.  We have seen them being used in other countries on previous TARs so it doesn't always mean that they are being used just in Germany.

^^ I agree with your chart Neobie and I'll guess they really stretch Leg 1 with the starting line task and all and then with Leg 1 ending with a superleg in Japan and continued through Japan but thats spec on my part.

What are the odds that the teams went to Abu Dhabi after Dubai?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: apskip on September 10, 2009, 12:59:19 PM
Caelestor,
I personally believe the probability of that is realtively high, say in range of 50% probability. My reasoning is that there are few alternatives within the United Arab Emirates, which is necessary to keep the country count from increasing. Team could still leave from Dubai International Airport starting from Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi at 0.6 million is the next largest major city in the UAE after Dubai (population 1.1 million). Although Sharjah at 0.5 million and Al Ayn at 0.4 million are large enough, few Americans can relate to them (although I do have a cousin who lived in Abu Dhabi and visited all of the UAE as a result, but he is a total exception).

An interesting note from TAR 14: Phil was almost always a day ahead of the field, exceptions discussed below. We have the Tokyo leg ending on Monday 20 Jul, and the HCMC leg on Thursday 23 Jul. That gives us enough time for only one spare Phil day, ie...

Scenario 1
20 Jul: Tokyo finish. Phil goes to Leg 2.
21 Jul: Pit Stop release delayed. Spare Phil day to prepare Leg 2.
22 Jul: Leg 2 finish. Phil goes quickly to HCMC.
23 Jul: Phil films HCMC quickly, racing with the teams.

Scenario 2
20 Jul: Tokyo finish. Phil goes quickly to Leg 2.
21 Jul: Phil films Leg 2 quickly, racing with the teams. Phil then goes to HCMC.
22 Jul: Pit Stop release delayed. Spare Phil day to prepare HCMC.
23 Jul: HCMC finish.

We see the pattern continuing with the next two legs:
Phnom Penh, 24 Jul being Phil's free day, 25 Jul the actual racing day.
Dubai, 26 Jul being Phil's free day, 27 Jul the actual racing day.

The two exceptions in TAR 14 were Stechelberg to Vienna (~430 mil), where Phil took a production van; and Phuket to Bangkok (~420 mil), which are within the same country. Apart from Krasnoyarsk-Novosibirsk (~390 mil), which is a headache transport-wise, these are the two shortest legs in the season. I'm guessing Leg 2 is very accessible from either Tokyo or Ho Chi Minh City. And since Phil's in a bit of a rush trying to get to the Pit Stop in the morning for HCMC, I'm guessing he'd use the rest day there. Educated guess conclusion: Leg 2, Japan.

Comparisons:
Tokyo to Kyoto/Osaka (310 mil), Sapporo (490 mil), Seoul (780 mil)
HCMC to Da Nang (370 mil), Vientiane (560 mil), Hanoi (710 mil)

Made one too many assumptions! :lol:

Flights from Tokyo Narita Airport if on Sunday July 17 or one day later to HoChiMinh City were most likely VN951 1030 1430. They are also multiple flights late in the afternoon, but I estimate they are much less likely.

Teams don't arrive into Tokyo until Sun the 19th, I think we have been looking at Tues the 21st for a possible Pitstop release? Do those flights work then?

I'm actually thinking Vietnam I takes place on the 22 July, which means teams would be arriving probably in the morning or the night before.

The first direct flight on the 22nd from Narita to Ho Chi Minh City is Apskip's 1030-1430. A 2.30pm arrival would probably be too late for Phil to be greeting teams at the Reunification Palace the next day in the morning (for the second Vietnam leg, unless it's a TBC), so I suspect teams were released in the afternoon of the 21st for one of these flights...

NH 931 (1840-2300) or NW 1 (1845-2310)

... with an overnight equalizer to bunch everyone up. (First flight in from Hong Kong on the 22nd is at 1020,

I keep thinking that there is a lot more to Nam than we know...if they are in the Mekong Delta we may want every minute.

Why the 22nd Neobie?? I've been thinking VERY early on the 21st...what have I forgotten?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Neobie on September 19, 2009, 12:16:46 AM
I am thinking along this schedule... Phil would want the 21st for his stand-ups, needing the extra day for Vietnam I (with all that flying) rather than for Vietnam II.

Since it looks like all 11 teams that arrived in Tokyo have bee seen in the promo for Vietnam there must be a NEL in Tokyo.

Also, I have somewhat arbitrarily placed the other
two NEL/TBC legs in the first legs of Dubai and Prague because those cities have two legs.

Let me know of any errors, omissions, or improvements to make!

Hold on there, which part are they lying about?

The planes land at 4pm, right? How did they get a "12.19pm" arrival time as mentioned by Phil?

I'm guessing the overnight stop did happen?

I noticed this right when Phil announced the leaving times for Leg 2. It just didn't make sense. Something had to happen that made Leg 1 longer than what was actually shown.

Agreed. Second last row, Finnair to Helsinki. AY 72 operates only on the 21st, it's known as AY 74 on the 20th and the 22nd.
This makes VN 951 the flight they took to Ho Chi Minh City, departing 10.30am and arriving at 2.30pm.

Weird. The only times I saw a plate thrown to the ground was when they found the right one. Or did I miss a lot? :groan:

Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on October 06, 2009, 07:38:26 AM
Love it Chateau! I reference this all the time!

I have the original Cambodia pics of the Trotters running to the Wat taken by jenimama...

using Boingo's new tool (PhotoScape) it gives me this for the exif though:

The exif data on the pics of the Trotters arrival and starting their run is listed at 7/25 1:26PM

The exif data on the shot up at who we are presuming is Zev and Justin shows 7/25 1:19PM.

The source is from California.... :lol:



Can't comment on the camera settings, but jenimama says they were taken between 3 and 330.

The Netherlands is a 36 hour Pitstop. Teams camped in tents, probably at the Farmer's Golf location which IS a campsite.

Post by: Neobie on October 27, 2009, 07:47:03 PM
Peach, when you say 36h Pit Stops do you mean exactly 36h, or >24h Pit Stops?

I don't think TPTB follows that 12h + increments of 24h rule anymore.

We know Dubai II was a 25h Pit Stop based on Meghan/Cheyne's timings (check-in 12.13pm, check-out 1.13pm), but why?

The teams were made to take a direct flight, and on that day there were only two: scheduled to leave at 12.01am and 12.05am. Having a 12h Pit Stop (departures from 12.13am to 3.20am) would have resulted in all teams bunched up on the same flight as they did anyway.

Are they just trying to get them a good place to sleep at night? And why the arbitrary time of 25 hours?
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on November 03, 2009, 09:49:38 PM
At first I thought it was to keep Meghan/Cheyne from catching an earlier flight but seems the take a direct flight accomplished that, so I don't know.

But teams stayed at the Atlantis for the Pitstop.
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: Neobie on November 03, 2009, 10:12:08 PM
I think the last one-connection itinerary is 1430-2210 via Frankfurt, which would make a 1.13pm departure (after a 25h Pit Stop) make sense, if there wasn't the whole direct flight thing...
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: theschnauzers on November 03, 2009, 10:19:20 PM
They probably needed the extra day to get Phil ahead of the Racers; that's seems to be the case increasingly as the total filming period keeps getting shorter.
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: littlewop on November 07, 2009, 04:55:29 PM
Could we be overlooking something as simple as Phil's watch may have been off by an hour?  Thus it was a 24 hr stop, rather than 25 hour.  It certainly could be a possibility.

Interesting look at how long teams actually take to get out of an airport...

The first plane, scheduled to arrive at 8.55am, has teams just catching the 9.20am train. Herbert/Nathaniel are actually out by 9.08am to change money, so either the plane arrived early or it really doesn't take too long to get out of customs.

The second flight arrived at 11.21am, and Brian/Ericka make it onto the 11.35am train. Pretty efficient there, huh?

Neobie, IIRC, both the Netherlands and Sweden are in the EU zone where going through customs isn't required, just like a domestic US flight.,
Title: Re: TAR 15 Timelines
Post by: georgiapeach on November 11, 2009, 11:00:59 PM
That's only for EU residents...believe me, I have stood in the Schipol customs plenty long sometimes!! And sometimes whizzed through.

Non EU residents still go through customs. I saw those times and was pretty amazed. They are efficient, but thorough, so if there are several flights arr at about the same time it can take a while.

Theories on the length of the Pit Stop? It's close to 12h, but what prevented Phil from saying that?

Teams started the Stockholm leg from Stockholm Central at 9.40am, 9.55am, 11.55am and 12.05am.
Departure times for the next leg were from 2.23am to 6.29am.

How long do you guys think the Stockholm leg took? And why not exactly 12h?

Departure times for the next leg were from 2.23am to 6.29am.

How long do you guys think the Stockholm leg took? And why not exactly 12h?

Neobie:
I see no problem with it being a precise 12 hour leg. Here are the "leave on Arlanda Express" time (several different from yours by 15 minutes due to your efforts to have screencaps displayed), reach pit stop time and the duration between the two:

Nate/Herb: 0935 1423           4 hours 48 minutes
Cheyne/Meghan 0920 1612   6 hours 52 minutes
Brian/Ericka 1135 1637          5 hours 02 minutes
Sam/Dan 0920 1704              7 hours 44 minutes
Gary/Matt 1150 1829             6 hours 39 minutes

Form here a reasonable scenario needs to be developed and I have one to present. The biggest component of the total is the time at the hay bales. Gary did that for 2 hours 46 minutes, but I think Sam was actually longer by over an hour. I am going to guess and say that Herb took 60 minutes, Cheyne about 3 hours, Brian about 60 minutes and Sam 4 hours (for 80 bales at average 3 minutes per bale).

The Arlanda Express takes 20 minutes. Getting to the ferry and across to Grona Lund from Centraal Station would be about 30 minutes. It would take maybe 10 minutes to enter GronaLund and get to the FrittFall. The FrittFall itself with the safety check before and time to get to the place marked by the arrow is maybe 5 minutes. The cluebox and ringtoss were no more than 5 minutes. Finding the marked car would be another 5 minutes. Driving 20 miles through the suburbs of Stockholm to the Explosives range, would be about 75 minutes. Filling sandbags and building the safety bunker probably took about 15 minutes for the most fit teams(Globetrotters, Sam/Dan, Gary/Matt) and 25 minutes for those weaker or not working well together (Cheyne/Meghan, Brian/Ericka). Driving the remaining maybe 15 miles in rural terrain and correctly navigating could have taken 30 to 60 minutes. Getting to the pit stop would take 5 minutes.

So, let's add it all up and see how it compares:
Nate/Herb 20 + 10 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 75 + 15 + 60 + 60 = 4 hours 15 minutes
Cheyne/Meghan 20 + 10 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 75 + 25 + 45 + 180 = 6 hours 10 minutes
Brian/Ericka 20 + 10 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 75 + 25 + 45 + 60 = 4 hours 10 minutes
Sam/Dan 20 + 10 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 75 + 15 + 60 + 240 = 7 hours 15 minutes
Gary/Matt 20 + 10 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 75 + 15 + 60 + 166 = 6 hours 01 minutes

You can see that my estimate technique gives a result slightly more than 30 minutes too low. I believe the difference would be in the difficulty of the self-driving/navigating, so adjustment of a total of 30 minutes there would be a good move. If you do that you get:
Nate/Herb 4 hours 45 minutes
Cheyne/Meghan 6 hours 40 minutes
Brian/Ericka 4 hours 40 minutes
Sam/Dan 7 hours 45 minutes
Gary/Matt 6 hours 31 minutes

My Brian/Ericka estimate is off by 22 minutes with this technique. All the rest are 1 to 9 minutes off.

Yep, Apskip, my train timings are the same as yours (my times are from Stockholm Central, yours are from Arlanda).

But Phil did this awkward thing avoiding the traditional 12-hour spiel, so was there anything that we don't know about?

I say they left out the 12 hour part to add in commercial time for the gnome, similar to how Phil doesn't actually explicitly say "a Roadblock is a task that only one person may perform." Then again, you should be ashamed if you can't figure that out eventually.

FWIW, the penultimate pitstop (between the two Prague legs) has been confirmed as a 10 hour pitstop.

1) Flight Time mentioned it in the ES video.

2) M/C departure time of 9:46 PM is ten hours after Chateau's estimated arrival of 11:46 AM. (Way to go, Chateau.)

Matt had some additions as well in his Interview with Murtz.

Sauna: approx 20 minutes

Changing detours in Zoutkamp: the "golf was right next to the dance, so it didn't hurt us at all to go there".
