Phil gives an interview here:

according to the above source,

this is what I've got from getting soaked in oil, in Azerbaijan,

There's an 'Oil Therapy Clinic'

Quote
Unrefined therapy in Azerbaijan           

Bathing in crude oil is reputed to soothe the skin and boost energy levels. But, as Luke Jerod Kummer discovers at Naftalan in Azerbaijan, the process of immersion is a far cry from the luxurious spa pampering that most of us enjoy "Why you come sanatoria?" the voice at the end of the phone asks. "Oil," I answer. I'm seated in the doctor's office at the Naftalan Sanatorium, near the battle-scarred territory of Nagorno-Karbakh in Azerbaijan. The health centre is famous for its crude oil baths, which are believed to have medicinal properties and be good for treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, easing joint pains; and generally calming the nerves. But as no one here speaks English, I'm none the wiser as to what the basis for these health claims might be. Rather, I'm talking to a stranger down a telephone line as banter ensues between my taxi driver, Emar, the "doctor", receptionist and nurses. People once flocked from all over the USSR to health centres in the small town of Naftalan to spend days soaking in the dark, heavy type of crude that's found in this area but is too expensive to refine. Today, western tourists like me are still an oddity.

There is a reason to believe that the Pitstop of the Baku leg was on Baku's Pier.

In the season preview, we know Bopper/Mark were filmed running in the area of the brown X spot (with the Carpet Museum in the background), so are we speculating that the pitstop is all the way at the end of the pier, by the red circle? Or maybe just at the tip of that pier?

If I was a TV producer I would want it at the end of the pier. A foot race to the mat would make great viewing.

Just conjecture.

They look to be at a full speed run so maybe they can see that it isn't close. We also don't usually see those kind of shots for a team that is about to be eliminated.

Alenaveda,

You are correct about the East Fort Baker sprint for AR2 and the AR7 race at Makgadikgadi Pans. Howvever, you have made a minor error for AR9. It was episode 9 of AR9 which was the exciting 3-way race to the pit stop at Lake Bennett wilderness Resort.

In the leg 6 (the second hour of episode 5 in the USA), Brian & Greg were in a car crash and they fell down to the last place.  They made an extraordinary comeback beating Ray & Deana in a foot race to the pit stop, to avoid elimination.

Well, the first place bears a resemblance to the fire temple (http://www.flickr.com/photos/irex/3613674646/) at Surakhany. The second place looks like a training facility for oil rig workers, but I haven't found the logo yet.

I think it's our pier. Here's a pano (http://www.360cities.net/image/360view-azerbaijan-baku-boulevard-bridge#19.50,-3.80,70.0); look to the left and zoom in and you'll see some similarities.

Hay stacking means just what you normally think it means. There are vast pasturelands in Azerbaijan. "Lucerne is the « Shah» of fodders and is grown in all irrigated areas, as well as in mountain and foothill regions with high rainfall. Lucerne is partly fed fresh and partly as hay for feeding in winter. If agro-technical measures are followed in a timely way, lucerne gives 4-5 cuts in a year ( with irrigation that yields 80-120 tonnes per hectare green forage or 10-15 tonnes per hectare dried hay). In dry land agriculture it yields 6-10 tonnes per hectare dried hay from 2-3 cuts."

"In moist spring (which of course does not apply), productivity of pastures is 1.0 - 1.2 tonnes per hectare as dried hay."

Hay is not very useful unless you stack it in some way and move it to where it is needed.

I've made a previous point that Joey and Danny were not featured at all in the season preview at the end of episode 1. Apparentely, there were no future sightings after Italy. I guess its safe to say they're next. :(

It's either them or Mopper because all other teams have been sighted past Baku :jam:

Though an NEL is a remote possibility? :duno:

Maybe the hay is another Fast Forward. Phil never said that there was only one on the race on leg 4.

i think its a little too soon to put that idea forward with out any visual evidence

but i agree, it does seem odd that it says TWO teams hit the hay, why would they be so specific??  :duno:

I think it means that two teams do that Detour because we already can see four teams doing the oil baths. I don't know why more teams would choose the oil but I guess they do ???

Yes, that's it! The teams shown here in Nairobi are Mark/Bopper, Brendon/Rachel, Nary/Jaime, Art/JJ, Vannessa/Ralph, and whether or not that man in the first pic is Dave, we have knowledge that his team reached Japan. So Joey and Danny really are the only ones left. Elimination either in Azerbaijan or Kenya. We can't factor out two possible NEL's in a row though, but this early in the race and not in the F4/F5 is unlikely. :jam:

there he is

I'm fairly confident this proves our next eliminated team is Joey and Danny. I think it's likely to occur in Azerbaijan, 6 non-finale episodes left. 2 non-eliminations. There is a 2/3 chance of Azerbaijan being an elimination leg.

kevin2012,
There is an alternate possibility, which is for what you are referring to as 2 NELs to be combined into one TBC (To Be Continued) spread over 2 episodes. My guess is that this would happen with 2 episodes in Tanzania.

The city and spa Naftalan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naftalan) are quite a ways inland; however, the name appears to be franchised. The only match I could find for Baku is the Naftalan Health Centre. (picture here (http://felixfeatures.photoshelter.com/image/I0000UleemllAhks)--the tiling looks similar)

Do we have picture proof of a hay task?

This:

"TWO TEAMS SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AFTER HITTING THE HAY," Can mean a team might have slept in or something.

This:

This has to be one of the more cryptic clues we have gotten from a press release. I am wondering why so many teams choose the nasty oil task. Maybe the hay thing (if it is a Detour) is a lot farther to drive to so everyone stays together like the speedo detour from TAR19.

Just speculating, but I'd  have to agree with Aussie with regards to 'hitting the hay' referring to sleeping, or perhaps over-sleeping. That was the first impression I got when I read the press release, but anything's possible. :duno:

I can possibly see ONE team oversleeping...but TWO? :duno:

And remember the second detour option should be fairly close to the first, which limits things as well.

True - two teams over-sleeping is highly improbable... a very minor possibility... :(

Hopefully there will be a promo shown which reveals the second Detour! :please:

Oh good idea!


So here is our press release again.


First part:
TWO TEAMS SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AFTER HITTING THE HAY, AND RACERS SPONGE UP THE LOCALS

I think they have given us our detours. :lol:

And part 3 is phrased differently, which seems to refer to a real hay stacking??  You would not go to sleep (hit the hay) to see how well you stack up....

Two Teams hit the hay to see how well they stack up and Racers break out the sponges for an oily detour

My guess is that this is the order of decreasing probability:

1. a haystack task involving real haystacks
2. needle in a haystack
3. "hitting the hay" (sleeping)
4. oversleeping

They are already searching for a clue at the Fire Temple and at a carpet shop. Could there be another RI involving searching hay?

in terms of Distance, I think I figured the Detour Route....

a good line up with slowhatch find of Naftalan Health Centre and Taza/Teze Bazaar....

also indication of the Carpet Shop located at Old Town Baku, where teams pick up the Detour clue...
Title: Re: TAR 20 Ep 6: "This Is Wicked Strange" (Baku, Azerbaijan)
Post by: ZouLy on March 21, 2012, 06:09:49 PM
Spec. so far ....

1. RI : Fly to Azerbaijan, once there, make your way to Atashgah Fire Temple and search the ground for your next clue...

2. RB : OTI-HUET Helicopter Simulation / Underwater Evacuation

3. RI : Make your way to Carpet Shop?, Old Town Baku (Icheri Sherer) - possibly searching clue inside the carpet rolls...

4. DT A : Proceed to Teze Bazaar and find the clue amongst hundreds of apples stack....

5. DT B : Proceed to Naftalan Health Centre and scrub oil to get their next clue....

6. PS : Baku Pier (in front of Baku Carpet Museum)



DT A Location is not confirmed, still spec.

And remember the second detour option should be fairly close to the first, which limits things as well.

But isn't that what happened in TAR 2 in Brazil.....IIRC, one team (the Grannies) overslept by quite a bit, and a second team overslept by a few minutes but made it to the start on time.

I'm still on the "I hope hay stacking is the FF task" train unless proven otherwise. I don't see Dave/Rachel and Joey/Danny in any of those previews, so they may very well be the two teams who went for it? If this is the case, then we know what happens. Dave/Rachel is 1st (again... :res:) and Joey/Danny are eliminated because they're too far behind to catch up. :'(

Also, this clue may have been given in the fire temple, and teams could go for it first thing in the morning (similar to the TAR3 FF on leg 1 that the Oh Brothers won).

Title: Re: TAR 20 Ep 6: "This Is Wicked Strange" (Baku, Azerbaijan)
Post by: georgiapeach on March 21, 2012, 10:54:59 PM
That's a very good idea. And what joy it would be to see more than one FF per race come back!!

We know it isn't the Detour. We know it isn't the RB. Can't be a Route Info with only two teams trying it.

And logistically I think the Firetower is 20+kms's from Baku central so perhaps there are fields out there ...

I like it!!

Slowhatch,

No, there are maybe 50 daily flight combinations from Frankfurt to Baku and about the same for Munich to Baku. Most of those combinations connect at Istanbul. There is one nonstop Frankfurt to Baku. See the AR20 Transport thread for the one best flight each from Frankfurt and from Munich.

it makes no sense that either of those two teams would be doing the hay stack. neither team was penalized, and there can't possibly be another FF. therefore, since it's not in the previews I've seen, you're shooting blanks man. i imagine dave doing so well on the helicopter challenge, which i just read from this forum and haven't seen anthing for real...joey and danny being the most likely to sleep in...and having those two teams come in first and last this week.

just talking about what seems like an plausible option. however, it is a distinct possibility that both rachel and dave and joey fitness sleep in and are in last place as a result. or, they're both kicking butt...or...one is kicking butt and one is completely losing...or...they can't possibly show every team...or...there is a fast forward...or...etc. so, really, this forum is not helping much =). making me think more than i want. but honestly i like these speculations. all of the tasks were on the preview after the show this past sunday.

just talking about what seems like an plausible option. however, it is a distinct possibility that both rachel and dave and joey fitness sleep in and are in last place as a result. or, they're both kicking butt...or...one is kicking butt and one is completely losing...or...they can't possibly show every team...or...there is a fast forward...or...etc. so, really, this forum is not helping much =). making me think more than i want. but honestly i like these speculations. all of the tasks were on the preview after the show this past sunday.


You could be 100% right , so pardon me if i'm wrong , but I don't think we've seen any teams performing the hay task , in preview's or cap's .

For me, it doesn't make sense that the two teams with the fittest guys (Dave, who was in the armed forces and "Fitness", for goodness sakes) would sleep in. I know they're gonna be tired and all, but it's only leg 6! I don't think KF would've hit anyone just yet, and I really doubt that it hit these two. So I do not think anyone sleeps in AT ALL. But of course this is all speculation... :conf:

Is there any particular reason that we are speculating that it could be Joey "Fitness" & Danny and Rachel & Dave who are the two sleeping in? :duno:

Isn't it possible that other teams could sleep in? :duno:

If the 'hitting the hay' refers to another Fast Forward, then we assume that those are the two teams who possibly went for it. But if 'hitting the hay' refers to sleeping in, it could still be anybody, right? :duno:

Well I think there are two exits, so the performance of one may/may not depend on the other. If Bopper wanted to hinder tall person from Art/JJ, he can by trying to use the other exit. :lol:

But I mean, in a real helicopter crash in the ocean, your first instinct would be to try to exit towards the door nearest you, no?

And my speculation based on that picture, it seems like tall person from Art/JJ is palming for the door handle so he can exit quickly... :res:

I would still eliminate the possibility of an intersection because no team is REQUIRED to do a fast forward, thus WRP would not plan for an intersection for an odd numbered team leg. The last time a fast forward was offered but not taken was in S14 Leg 7, a charity FF in Phuket, Thailand

I don't know. But they went to the trouble of adding intense over it. We dont usually get random shots of the helicopters filming the race/city shots. I think this may be something that is a part of the "rescue" though. Remember this is  a helicopter evacuation, maybe this is just footage showing us a crash example?? ???

Maybe the RB must be completed with the help of an instructor.  I remember teams in many tasks along all the season (the Ford RB in Belgium last season) who requires the involvement of a specialist for safety matters.  This could be another example of Occam's razor:  "the simplest explanation is usually correct".

and the whole hay thing does scream out 'FF', Dave/Rachel and Joey/Danny have not been seen in ANY promos, except the fire dancing, which appears to be an equaliser because every team is there

You're right; but technically there's only six teams.  Art & J.J. are out of the equation, because they already won the previous FF in Turin.
That leaves only 1 team trying the FF and 5 (plus the border patrol agents) in the intersection.  But all I'm saying is only a wild spec.

Agree, Peach.  But it's a funny game to spec in this wild way, including our wishes, only because we don't have any clue on the whereabouts of two teams and we're unable to get a positive identification on the person next to Bopper.  We can apply Conan Doyle's quote, "when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth"; but I am closer to my first post of today.

Anyway, we're gonna have the answer tonight.

Post by: theschnauzers on March 25, 2012, 02:40:09 AM
There was a season where one team had won a Fast Forward with another team during an Intersection period, and then won an individual Fast Forward on a subsequent leg. (Oswald and Danny, season 11, legs 8 (Poland, during an intersection) and leg 10 (Hong Kong.)

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned (or I didn't see it in this leg.)

In any event, the show has never had an intersection with an odd number of teams; it would put a solo team at an advantage or disadvantage, depending on the circumstances.

I'd be surprised if there's a second FF this soon if there is to be a second one this season.

As to the helicopter, er may not know why the helicopter shot is in the promos, but it did occur to me that teams might have had to ride in a helicopter before or after the helicopter task. Haven't they done something like that before? I can visualize it (Argentina or Brazil or Guam or Hawaii in an early season, perhaps?) but I don't have time right now to wade through to look. But I do remember something like that.

I think we probably have at least one active route marker task in here somewhere; and the possibility is that the waiting team member at a roadblock gets a helicopter ride. They've done that sort of thing already. And from the preview for the season, there's a hint of a helicopter ride on the last leg of the Race, IIRC, so I think the use of helicopters is quite deliberate, Peach. Just to throw that additional thought in.

I do not think it is fair if there is a Fastforward and an Intersection on the same leg. If we have two teams going after the Fastforward and one team waiting at the Intersection for the team there loses the battle for the Fastforward. For me if should be if you loses the battle for the Fastforward, then you have a lot of catch up to do. Not have one team waiting for you at the intersection, so you can battle with them not to get eliminated!!!! :duno: :duno: :duno: :duno:

We have NO proof for either a FF or an Intersection. ALL is spec only.

Although the FF fits the info we have:

Quote
Two Teams hit the hay to see how well they stack up

And that neither Dave/Rachel OR Danny/Joey are seen after the Fire Tower.

The eliminated teams have been getting a fair bit of visibility in the promos up to now. It is odd to have a team we think may be eliminated have NO visibility at all.  What I don't understand is why if J/D go for the (presumed) FF and can't do it...why don't we see them later doing a challenge? Are they so far behind that they don't even get to try the tasks? Do we have a in the field elim by Phil?? Does something ELSE happen?? If the time shadows would be so late that would give them away that would be one thing....but in the capsule shots would be time free.

And I do NOT believe there is an Intersection...fwiw.

Intersection seems unlikely to me, although how amazingly funny would it be if the seventh-placed team gets to the Intersection, sees that there is nobody there waiting for them, and realises that they are forced to go complete the Fast Forward! :lol3: That would be interesting, for sure! :lol:

There was a season where one team had won a Fast Forward with another team during an Intersection period, and then won an individual Fast Forward on a subsequent leg. (Oswald and Danny, season 11, legs 8 (Poland, during an intersection) and leg 10 (Hong Kong.)

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned (or I didn't see it in this leg.)

In any event, the show has never had an intersection with an odd number of teams; it would put a solo team at an advantage or disadvantage, depending on the circumstances.

I'd be surprised if there's a second FF this soon if there is to be a second one this season.

As to the helicopter, er may not know why the helicopter shot is in the promos, but it did occur to me that teams might have had to ride in a helicopter before or after the helicopter task. Haven't they done something like that before? I can visualize it (Argentina or Brazil or Guam or Hawaii in an early season, perhaps?) but I don't have time right now to wade through to look. But I do remember something like that.

I think we probably have at least one active route marker task in here somewhere; and the possibility is that the waiting team member at a roadblock gets a helicopter ride. They've done that sort of thing already. And from the preview for the season, there's a hint of a helicopter ride on the last leg of the Race, IIRC, so I think the use of helicopters is quite deliberate, Peach. Just to throw that additional thought in.

I remember two:  they used helicopters to travel to three different buildings in the first leg of TAR9 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to retrieve their next clue; and in TAR16, during the Seychelles leg, was the transportation to the location of both Detours.

That doesn't seem very sanitary - um to me. Especially the scraped bits.

Oh well, with the carcinogens in the crude oil, the recycled remnants from earlier patients is the least of their worries.

CBS has sometimes played loose and fancy free with their wording in the past.  Is it possible that the hay has something to do with the apple detour.  Since horses typically eat both apples & hay.  And searching for one apple in a car full of apples could be compared to searching for a needle in a haystack?  And the apples do seem to be stacked up.  Or maybe there is more to the detour than just finding the apple....Just a thought.  :duno:

Here is some interesting information. The statement that the crude oil is reused struck me as odd, since this heavy crude is assumed to have no value as a hydrocarbon. The rationale must be that the cost of disposing of 45 gallons of crude oil for each patient is significant and outweighs any health risks. Here is an article on the subject:

Azerbaijan Clinic Uses Crude Oil Baths as Therapeutic Treatments
By Spooky on May 5th, 2011

A clinic in the town of Naftalan, 160 miles noth-west of Azerbaijan’s capital of Baku, has found a therapeutic use for its abundant quantities of crude oil.

Azerbaijan is one of the world’s leading oil exporters, and in the country’s western plains “black gold” has been seeping out of the ground for centuries. In fact, they have so much of the stuff, that in the town of Naftalan, they use the excess crude oil as a cure for various illnesses. It all goes down at the famous Naftalan Clinic, where people from all over the former Soviet Union and even from the Emirates and Europe come to treat various skin diseases, rheumatism, arthritis and even their nerves with crude oil. Doctors here say their miraculous oil therapy is used to trat up to 100 different conditions.

The most popular treatment at Naftalan is the crude oil bath. Patients lower their bodies into 35 gallons of crude oil, at a temperature of 40 degrees. Many of them say the warm oil relaxes their joints and they’d love to spend more than 10 minutes soaked in black oil, but since it contains almost 50% naphthalene, a hydrocarbon deemed potentially carcinogenic by EU regulations, longer sessions could be hazardous to their health. The clinic’s doctors claim millions of people have been treated at Naftalan over the years, and none of them have suffered any complications, as a result. Still, to be on the safe side they limit the sessions to 10 minutes, and no more than a bath per day, during a 10-day treatment.

According to dr. Alif Zulfugar, manager of the Naftalan Clinic, the oil used for therapeutic baths, known as Naftalan, is to heavy for industrial use, so it is only used for clinical purposes. It doesn’t get treated in any way, just loaded up in tankers and delivered to the clinic. Most of it is heated and poured into the basin for baths, but there are other treatments available, as well. The resin from the crude oil is extracted and painted on the patient’s limbs, helping the nervous and blood system and easing joint pain.

Even though the staff at Naftalan Clinic make sure patients are thoroughly cleaned after their baths, they all take a few drops of oil with them wherever they go, as their saturated skin oozes crude oil for a period of two-three days.

In the season preview, we know Bopper/Mark were filmed running in the area of the brown X spot (with the Carpet Museum in the background), so are we speculating that the pitstop is all the way at the end of the pier, by the red circle? Or maybe just at the tip of that pier?
They didn't go all the way to where X marks the spot. They fulfilled the boldened prediction I had up there. :D
