I think the donkeys was a Detour Option
and the rowing/paddling was a Rodablock

One member must paddle a boat that will carry another team member to the pit-stop.

or either way. And the donkeys are not a detour, it was a route info task

Or perhaps they will be eliminated, just not for the reason implied in the promo!  Maybe they have bad luck with the donkeys and fall behind as a result.

Which reminds me -- I loved the donkeys of Season 12 -- especially the one that Nate & Jen had!  When Jen yelled at Nate that he couldn't yell at the donkey, the way the donkey reacted made me think it was laughing at them!  That was a total riot!   :lol3:

The Boteti River runs through Maun and on into the Okavango Delta. On the other side of the Delta, the flows out consolidate from 3 prongs into one Okavango River. I expect that the water skiing was on the Boteti River and not the Okavango River.

In fact, I found this:

 Meno A Kwena is an old-style safari camp, run by David Dugmore, an experienced guide with a real passion for Botswana's bush and for community development . It is situated on tribal land on a cliff edge overlooking the Boteti River, which began to flow again in late 2008, having been dry for over 15 years. The name Meno A Kwena is the local name for the area, which translates as 'teeth of the crocodile'.


Meno A Kwena's relaxed atmosphere, warm welcome and the team's keen interest in the surrounding area and its wildlife shine through – as does the hands-on approach of the camp's committed owner and managers. It won't be to everyone's liking – it's fairly rustic, and if you are travelling to Botswana for a pure big-game experience then it's tempting to say Meno A Kwena will not be for you. The return of water to the Boteti has started to change the dynamic here however and often game-viewing from the camp is as good as it is from the vehicle.

Looking at the bigger picture, Meno exists right on the transition zone between the unique Okavango Delta region of the Kalahari and the more typical, dryer regions further south - it's this location which makes it special. So, if you are keen to experience something slightly different from the norm with a rather quirky feel and an emphasis on the human side of life in Botswana as well as the wildlife, Meno is certainly worth a visit for at least a couple of nights.

The owner of the Safari Camp is Roger's brother, David; so that should be the connection.  Besides, his tented safaris - Roger's is owner of "Roger Dugmore Safaris" - have similar style of tents as the one in the background of Pam & Winnie confessional.

How close are we to Royal Tree Lodge here? (GE still lists it as Motsentsela Tree Lodge I think)

From the Elise post:

Quote
For this episode, we spent time at the Royal Tree Game Reserve outside the city of Maun. It's easy to feel at one with nature when you're sleeping in a wonderful tent under the stars on a private reserve on the banks of the Thamalakane River.

How close are we to Royal Tree Lodge here? (GE still lists it as Motsentsela Tree Lodge I think)

From the Elise post:

I found the Royal Tree Lodge site, and has this map.  It has marked the place,  and I add Maun and what I hope is the correct river.

The Royal Tree Lodge and the Water Skiing launch point are far apart (12.5 miles).  But, upon close inspection you can see that the helicopter footage of the Donkey Task is located near at the Royal Tree Lodge  :lol3:

The Boteti River runs through Maun and on into the Okavango Delta. On the other side of the Delta, the flows out consolidate from 3 prongs into one Okavango River. I expect that the water skiing was on the Boteti River and not the Okavango River.
...

Then you would be wrong.   :o

Here is the location of the crocodile water skiing:  Thamalakane River (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thamalakane_River), 8 miles northeast of Maun
Chateau,
I guess where the Thalamakane flows and when it becomes the Boteti River is open to some differences depending on your source. Here is one I have discovered after additional research on this subject:

Great Places Physical Geography by Dr. Cecil Keen July 2007

2 parallel faults now control the direction in which the Okavango River enters the Kalahari Basin, in an area called the Panhandle. Other faults also direct its exit from the Delta, flowing south into the ocean of sand. As the Okavango flows over the Gomare Fault, a continuation of the Great Rift Valley of east Africa, that runs southwest to northeast, the slope of the land breaks it up into numerous channels, which fan outwards over the Delta. These are blocked by 2 southern faults, the Kunyere and the Thalamakane, which redirect the Delta's myriad channels. The Thalamakane Fault acts as a 150-mile-long natural dam: Here the channels abruptly change direction and join to form one river, the Boteti, which flows eastwards through a break in the fault towards the Makgadikgadi Pan. A small channel, the Nghabe River, continues southwest toward Lake Ngami, serving as both inlet and outlet depending on the strength and direction of the annual floods.

Unfortunately, Dr. Green does not identify precisely where the change from the Thalamakane Fault to the Boteti river happens.

I have also discovered sources which recognize a Thalamakane River (not mentioned at all by Dr. Green). One is tourist literature from the Thalamakane Tourist Resort. It states "This metropolis (Maun) is now spread out along the wide banks of the timeless Thamalakane River. It also shows photos of canoes being poled.

apskip......I suspect that you have a mis-typed word.

Unfortunately, Dr. Green does not identify precisely where the change from the Thalamakane Fault River to the Boteti River happens.

I can tell you after over 40 years professional experience, that faults do not morph/transform into rivers. They are two completely different landforms. In this case, the Thalamakane River follows the Thalamakane fault. This is because the land on one side of the fault is upthrust, creating a natural dam and redirecting the flow of the river.

Last episode there was a question of the right hand drive vehicles that the teams used, since it was brought up that Botswana drives on the right. Photos from this episode completely disspell that notion. It is very obvious that people drive on the left in Botswana.

Actually, Dr. Green says that the channels change into a river:

Apskip has merely misunderstood what Dr. Green wrote.

Dr. Rox, I did misspell his name on the original post (quickly revised to correct it), but all further references were to Dr. Cecil Keen. Here is who he is:

Dr. Cecil Keen, originally from Zimbabwe, is a professor of Geography at Minnesota State University Mankato. He took some notes on "the greatest places"  found at www.greatestplaces.org/notes/ to share with us:

Okavango
Amazon
Greenland
Iguazu
Madagascar
Namib
Tibet

To have written those notes he must have visited all those places and wrote them from a perspective of a geographer.

Dr. Rox,

I have posted #42, #45 and #49. Please read them again carefully. There are no references to Dr. Cecil Green although I did indicate in #49 that I had originally misremembered Dr. Keen as Dr. Green but corrected that immediately. The bottom line is that there is no Dr. Green so please cease and desist badgering me about irrelevancies.

I read a comment from a guy in a article (unfortunately i forget the link) and he said Joey/Meghan will be the next to go. He also know who won the race. Well.. he has no proof, but in the preview, Phil's waiting at the pit stop, and the last 2 teams are Joey/Meghan & Max/Katie. We all know that Max and Katie are in the top 3.

Seeing the FF this leg, makes me really very angry. I don't know why. But if a producer is reading this, they need to stop putting FF on the second leg in the same country. It's irritating and anti-climax and unfair as hell for a viewer like me to watch the show and know who wins the leg in about 10 minutes into the show. It's HORRIBLE. The winner of the previous leg, just have to retrieve the next clue in first place and attempt the FF to win it. What the hell.

Kthxbye, just ranting.

Still finding CBS a bit odd. They have been spoiling the FF episodes for a few season's now...but giving us WHO takes it? ??? odd...

Of course, it isn't clear if their attempt is successful...or not!! :lol:
However, it might be instructive to check out what percentage of completed Fast Forwards have gone unchallenged. The only easy way I know to do this is a historical analysis for the entirety of Amazing Race seasons to develop the data from scratch for seasons 15 to 21 but use as a database for seasons 1 to 14 a favorite Amazing Race reference book "Circumnavigating the Globe: Amazing Race 10 - 14 and Amazing Race Asia 1 - 3" pp. 261-265:

AR21 ep. 4 - James/Abba collect and deliver rats
AR21 ep. 9 - Natalie/Nadiya were first to Flying Dutchman amphibious and eat 5 herring each during its route in Amsterdam (note my non-consideration of Jaymes/James contesting it is because they arrived at the start point as Natalie/Nadiya finished)

Total - 30

My conclusion is that 35% of all historical FAST FORWARDs have been contested and 65% uncontested. Which one will AR22 ep. 7 be? Available history cannot answer that yet.

Peach,

I am not spending the extra time to find and include in my analysis unaired and unused FAST FORWARDs. They are irrelevant for my purpose in the analysis of COMPLETED FAST FORWARDs since we do not know who competed and who won on unaired FAST FORWARDs and unused FAST FORWARDs speak for themselves. Anyone interested in doing that may with my blessing.

Fr me that is not a team, really. I do not think the Hockeys will make it to this point, if we see the went for the FF, and there will not be the donkey task before the FF. It is quite ridiculous...

What we were talking before is tht the donkey cannot be a roadblock because we have seen some teams doing it (both members)

How do we know that it's a race for last place between Max & Katie and Joey & Meghan? It could easily be misleading editing. I don't see Phil in the same shot as the teams.

For all we know, it's a race for first place! Or, considering the Fast Forward, perhaps second and third.

Hooky rulez. But Page 1 of timeline thread will tell you everything, Hooky.

The last time somebody didn't get an FF is... Jaymes and James if you consider somebody who went to the location and wanted to get it.

The last time somebody didn't get an FF even after trying the task would be Joey and Danny. There are not a lot of instances of teams who tried the FF and didn't win it.

Can more ppl talk about their hate for linear legs FF here, or as a whole without bunching? Try to make the leg designer guilty or the producers reading this feel our pain as viewers as we watch...

On the former assertion even though Jaymes and James made a late start for the FAST FORWARD Natalie and Nadiya were finished by the time Jaymes and James arrived at the start point at the cafe, so I count that as an Uncontested FAST FORWARD. See post #86 above.

I know of 18 teams spread across 16 episodes for all 21 past seasons in who "tried the FF and didn't win it." That is 35% of all Completed FAST FORWARDs, which to me is a lot of instances.

Yes and the Hand in Cap 8 is wearing blue gloves,but both teams are using bare hands. This is probably editing to make J&M struggling at the start to get the donkey to go,but their probably got it going faster than what really was shown.

Post by: Hooky on March 30, 2013, 12:11:35 AM
I read a comment from a guy in a article (unfortunately i forget the link) and he said Joey/Meghan will be the next to go. He also know who won the race. Well.. he has no proof, but in the preview, Phil's waiting at the pit stop, and the last 2 teams are Joey/Meghan & Max/Katie. We all know that Max and Katie are in the top 3.

How do we know that it's a race for last place between Max & Katie and Joey & Meghan? It could easily be misleading editing. I don't see Phil in the same shot as the teams.

For all we know, it's a race for first place! Or, considering the Fast Forward, perhaps second and third.

What you doing in the spoilers?? :hearts:

:inocent:

I tried abstaining for a while and just couldn't resist. :lol3:

Hooky rulez. But Page 1 of timeline thread will tell you everything, Hooky.

Thanks Joab. You rulez too! :hoot:

The truth is, I have been reading the episode spoilers since Leg 2, but not the full race spoilers. So I don't actually know who the Final 3 will be or anything; only what is expected to happen on the next leg. The timeline is just too much for me right now. I suspect it would pretty much ruin the whole race for me, so I'm determined to avoid it. Reading these sometimes helps in the Pick'em Game though... :hides

Anyway, carry on! :sneak

I made a little more research:

(http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y426/Alenaveda/TAR22/maunmap7_zpscd02e5a9.png)

The Boseja area is in the way to Maun in the other shore of the Thamalakane River. In fact you've got to cross the Thamalakane River to go through Maun - as the clue says - using the A-3 route, and that make me spec that Caroline & Jennifer are coming from the Meno-A-Kwena Camp Site (Pit Stop Leg 6) when they get caught by the speed trap.  So that RI could be the first one of the leg.

Speedbump

Then RB/goats on the river

Then Detours

But am wondering why ANYONE would choose a donkey task unless they had to? Donkey are risky... :ascared

In the same line of thought, in TAR12 the donkeys were the Active Route info after the RB and before go checking at the PS.

Post by: DrRox on March 30, 2013, 04:24:38 PM
Well, I started on another tack. I started working my backwards from the photos of the RB in the papyrus reeds. The reeds grow in pretty still water.....in the delta setting more than the river system. There is one very large Okavango Delta distributary channel just to the west of Maun. The clue says to "drive through Maun, to the polling station. So maybe the polling station is in Maun West and then they go a little farther to the RB. It appears to me that it is a pretty long distance if they go to a polling station in Maun East and then to some papyrus areas in the north and east of Maun. Just speculation on my part. Another reason for this train of thought, is that teams have such a long drive from the Pit Start/Pit Stay to get to Maun. Also, this particular distributary channel actually empties into the river system right across the river from where the donkey tasks take place.....so they could transport them there by boat if they wanted too. Sort of fits in with the press photo of Chuck/Wynona in the high speed boat.

I'm just thinking that the Donkeys are an Active Route info. Any racer who has seen season 12 (or other seasons) knows that animals, especially donkeys are risky.

In the same line of thought, in TAR12 the donkeys were the Active Route info after the RB and before go checking at the PS.

I just had an epiphany! Is this it?! :o

Remember this:

"they had to find the Mokoro Station"

in

OK, I did some more digging and found a few Facebook sightings from Maun, Botswana. I'm convinced now that some version of TAR was there for the last few days. I'm also thinking it's very likely that it's TAR 22 and not TAR Norway, but no one has quite spelled it out. I'm thinking that it would have been mentioned if they were speaking Norwegian and I'm guessing the Norwegian version doesn't have the budget for the Hummer mentioned below.

Wow, Bots recognized, a certain reality TV show is been shot right in front of me at Maun International Airport and Mack Air Offices. I'm wondering where are these guys going from here. They are couples traveling together with each couple followed by 2 Camera crews. Somebody remind me of the name, Please <Friend 2>, you know it and watch it

Poor people, always with camera crew. Jus gave them direction to the Mokoro Station and they refused to tell me the name of the show. Good luck Guys

I checked out Mokoro Station and it seems to be the starting point for dugout canoe tours of the shallow waterways of the Okavango River Delta. Here's a couple of links to pictures of Mokoro canoes. The second was taken earlier today, but doesn't appear to be TAR related.

From reading a couple of blogs, they may see herds of elephants, hippoes, giraffe, zebras, kudus, antelopes, and buffaloes. Should be very scenic.

Also, in a moment of extreme synchronicity, Google maps announced a few hours ago that street level mapping of Botswana is now on line, including the Okavango River Delta where TAR 22 was seen.

In fact, Mokoro is the name of the canoes teams are using to cross the river.

mokoro: a type of dug-out canoe commonly used in the Okavango Delta.

The list is old:  2009 General Elections

If you look at what they use as Polling Stations you see things like 'tent' or 'cattle crush'

They just use places that locals will know how to find it.

References to Mokoros and Polling Station do turn up searches:   "After this stop, we will travel back in our mokoros to the Polling station."

Mokoro is the 'name' of this Polling Station.

Hmmm, maybe we are ALL right? I cannot make out the word "mokoro" but....

Perhaps "polling" station is NOT a voting station, but a river "poling" station??

Quote
Day 4 Okavango Delta

An early departure from Maun, with a vehicle of the camp, we proceed on to the Poling station. A poling station is the place where the dug-out canoes, better known as mokoros, are kept.

From here we will be travelling on the Delta waterways by means of mokoro. The propulsion is in the form of a man standing at the back of the mokoro and using a long pole to propel the mokoro forward. This person is called a ‘poller’ (African Gondolier). The tranquillity that one experiences while gliding through these waterways was previously described by clients as the African Venice!! Upon arrival on one of the Islands in the Delta, we will do a game walk on the Island with an experienced African Guide who will share his knowledge and expertise on this specific area.

Having returned to our mokoros after the game walk, we will have a well deserved lunch and enjoy a bit of rest. After this stop, we will travel back in our mokoros to the Polling station. From there we will travel with the vehicle of the camp, back to our camp in Maun.

I dont remember any previous race where the first plane teams have been so decimated like this season.

Racing report
Amazing Race Season 22, Episode 1, "Business in the front, party in the back"


The first flight combination to Bora Bora was probably
 TN101 LAX-PPT 23:54-06:02+1
 VT402 PPT-BOB 09:00-09:50
This carries:
 Chuck & Wynona
 Pam & Winnie
 Idries & Jamil
 Dave & Connor
 Jessica & John

The second flight was probably:
 AF076 LAX-PPT 02:01-06:56
 VT452 PPT-BOB 10:00-10:50
This carries:
 Max & Katie
 Bates & Anthony
 Matt & Daniel
 Caroline & Jennifer
 Joey & Meghan
 Mona & Beth


Just seems strange/odd to me. Just goes along with all the other odd stuff in this version of TAR.

Post by: apskip on April 01, 2013, 10:38:47 AM
It just shows that ability to reach LAX in the first group with no task involved other than good navigation does not correlate with ability to last in the race. I doubt that chuck/Wynona are going to last much longer in AR22. I expected them to be eliminated long before the current leg and they have not.

I see the issue as World Race Productions not having a first task near the AR22 start line to "separate the wheat from the chaff" as Phil has said earlier. If they had, probably the composition of the first flight would have been closer to the teams now remaining.

I disagree. The way I see it, most of the teams eliminated so far weren't inept continuously, they were pretty competitive people who ran into just one inconvenience that sealed their fate:
* The twins are done by facing the one challenge they were not ready to deal with
* Jessica & John were done for their bad luck and lack of judgment, after they had been racing consistently well
* Dave & Connor were leading the pack in spite of their injury and only had to withdraw out of medical concern
* Pam & Winnie were also leading in later legs but were done by what could only be considered a "brain fart"

I believe these four teams wold have had a chance at the million had they not tripped.

Thanks for the link to that great application. It will surely be very handy in the future. I had orginally identified that village, but talked myself out of it eventually. I just thought it was to far north and to developed. So I looked for some places closer to the river exit point and less developed.

Again, thanks for the link.

I agree with Dan on this one. Many of the teams that have been eliminated so far were potentially the strongest teams in the race, and the factors leading to their respective eliminations were rather unlikely, at least on paper. What we are left with is a race that allows the former "bottom-feeding" or "average" teams (Bates & Anthony are the only frontrunners left) a chance to shine.

That being said, I miss Dave & Connor and am sad about Pam & Winnie... :(

Maybe one of you great spoilers can clear up something that has been bothering me about this episode.  I've discussed this with some friends who also love The Amazing Race and no is remembering what I think I remember.

It seems to be that many seasons ago a team got a penalty when they checked in for speeding on the race.  Does anyone remember that or am I imagining it?   :rules: :driveby

Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 7 "Be Safe and Don't Hit a Cow"
Post by: Shelact on April 07, 2013, 04:48:34 PM
I just looked up season 13 on Wikipedia.   I knew I remembered something.

"Terence & Sarah initially arrived 3rd, but were issued a 30-minute penalty for speeding and was issued at the start of the next leg. They thus departed 5th in the next leg."

So does this mean that Caroline & Jennifer as well as Max & Katie will be getting a 30 minute penalty at the start of the next leg and if so will they even tell us?  Considering that Max and Katie were next to last on this leg it could even make a difference if Pam and Winnie finished less than a half hour after them.   Is there any way to find out if they did away with the penalty for speeding?   Perhaps since both teams paid their fines and used more than a half hour to do it, that in itself was the penalty.   Any opinions on this?

I would think the later point you said would probably be the case. That the fact they got busted and had to go to the police station and was a delay to the race and and about an $80 fine IIRC is enough of a penalty itself that they would not get penalized again.

Post by: theschnauzers on April 07, 2013, 06:50:06 PM
Actually, you can go back to season 2 in Namibia for the origin of this.

In that season, and in a couple of subsequent seasons the teams were instructed in the clue instructions not to exceed a stated speed limit. The stated limited was a lower speed than what was legally permitted. In these cases, the teams would receive a penalty of 30 minutes plus the amount of time saved from speeding. (The documentation was in the film shot by the camera crew, who were recording the speedometer during the task.)

When teams violated local traffic laws, the teams has to deal with the local police on the matter, and pay whatever fine was assessed. That was the case in this last episode with both teams that had to pay the fine out of their cash they had accumulated by that point in the Race.

That latter rule also applies to violating other traffic laws, as was the case for one team that ran afoul of the Moscow police; I'd have to look for which season, but the show did show the team getting a traffic ticket (IIRC, the team had driven in to an area where traffic had been temporarily blocked.)

Hope that helps.

Post by: Shelact on April 07, 2013, 09:33:14 PM
Thanks for all that info but I'm confused.

Has the penalty for speeding been completely eliminated? 

In the first part it looks like the penalty of 30 minutes is still in effect for speeding but in the second part you mention that they have to pay the fine if caught.   Does paying the fine mean that they won't be penalized?   Part of this is curiosity and the other part is if Pam and Winnie did check in within 30 minutes of Max and Katie then Max and Katie should have been eliminated.  I don't think they would have telecast Pam and Winnie's elimination if this was the case but I do think the penalty for speeding should have been brought up if it is still in effect for both teams that were caught.
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 7 "Be Safe and Don't Hit a Cow"
Post by: theschnauzers on April 07, 2013, 10:35:13 PM
The show imposes a penalty for violation of an instruction given in or with a clue, such as a show-imposed speed limit. (The legal speed limit would be higher than the one TPTB imposed for the task.)

The payment of a fine for violation of local posted speed limits, such as in the most recent Botswana legs, is not a penalty assessed by the show, but is a fine imposed by the local police. The teams lose whatever time and money is consumed because of it, but the show does not impose its own penalty.

Keep in mind that when the show imposes an instruction for a task, such as a lower than the posted speed limit, or having a provided driver drive the team's vehicle after dark or in certain terrain, that is usually due to insurance requirements to assure the safety of the teams.

The question of time saved by the Teams who were caught speeding is zeroed out by the fact that they did not save any time by speeding!

The reason they didn't save time is because the 120 kph speed limit changed to 80 kph and then again to 60 kph only one mile and one half mile before the radar unit.  It really is a classic speed trap.  :lol3:

You can go into Google street view at these locations and see the signs!

So no real time was saved by those teams.  They just missed or failed to react fast enough to the speed limit changes.
