GEORGIAPEACH, I don't think there is any 12 hour wait as a result of a pit stop at the restaurant; that is at Yanahurco. What must happen is an hours-of-operation bunching combined with some mechanism like pulling numbers from a board to penalize the later team arrivals at the restaurant and give the first arrivals a head start.

Exactly apskip, I thought that was a "give-me." First team in first team out.

LEG Equalizers from previous first leg tars
TAR1 Sign up for charter
TAR2 Sign up for boat
TAR3 Sign up for bus
TAR4 Pull Departure for bus
TAR5 Pull Departure for boat
TAR6 Pull Departure for van
TAR7 Pull Departure for plane
TAR9 Nada the detour was the equalizer and leg2 had the departure times
TAR10 Pull Departure for motarbike thingy

Thanks kogs and apskip!  That's a lot of pulling a number in the first episode--may the trend continue!

FOUR-TIME EMMY AWARD WINNER "THE AMAZING RACE" RETURNS WITH AN ALL-STAR EDITION, PREMIERING SUNDAY, FEB. 18, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
"28 Days, Five Continents, More Than 45,000 Miles"



          "I Told You Less Martinis And More Cardio" -- Eleven former teams return to compete in a Race around the world on THE AMAZING RACE: ALL-STARS, the 11th installment of the four-time Emmy Award-winning series hosted by Phil Keoghan premiering Sunday, Feb. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

          THE AMAZING RACE: ALL-STARS will reunite some of the most memorable, entertaining and controversial Teams from previous seasons who will travel more than 45,000 miles, spanning five continents in 28 days, with stops in such locations as Argentina, Mozambique and Chile, to name a few.  These former teams will pair up for one final trek around the globe as they battle the best of the best in a Race to the Finish Line for their second attempt at the million dollar prize.

         The race begins in Miami, Fla. when Teams begin jockeying for available flights to the first destination, Quito, Ecuador.  Once there, Teams climb to an elevation of 11,040 feet during a four-hour ride through the rugged terrain of the Andes Mountain en route to their first Detour.  The All-Stars' physical stamina is tested immediately as Teams struggle to complete the Detour that will require several Racers to get up close and personal with one hundred wild horses.

I've got a better estimate when Charla & Mirna get their taxi:

This shot was taken between 6:51 and 7:12 am (assumes November 22nd)

I just reread the TV guide article--they have to rope and trim the horse's hooves--no wonder they say

.


O h thank you Chateau! They HAVE to do something else--even if it is just go get the SUV's somewhere! But if I was TPTB, I would still want something really dramatic for the first show! Show me the hook!  :yess: :jumpy:




YAY puddin! More pics!  :hearts: Is that Miami?

Very interesting that D/M are the instigators of a let's get the  BQs plot--there still must be some left-over feelings there from TAR 10--or maybe they just know how competitive they are  and want them out early?

the sneek peek is uploaded on http://www.mediafire.com/?8ynnnniiq1w

If it weren't for the spoilers I'd be suspicious that that JVJ as well as The Cha's are almost invisible in all promo's so far.

I just watched the YouTube video on David/Mary trying to fake out Dustin/Kandice (it must not have worked or been very effective since D/K are in the first group at Yanahurco). My focus was on the statements made by a team about going to COPA, which is another airline that flew from Miami to Quito with connection in Panama City. Here are the flight schedules:

AA931 departs MIA 1550 arrives UIO 1950

AA967 departs MIA 1705 arrives UIO 2105

CM 301 departs MIA 1530 arrives PTY 1825, CM211 departs PTY 1935 arrives UIO 2145

I see no incentive for anyone to take the Copa flights, so there must have been one of three things happening:

1. the clue restricted both of the AA flights to a specific number of teams

2. AA had a relatively full flight and could not accomodate everyone that wanted to be on one of their flights (probably AA967).

3. Teams were having difficulty getting decent arrival information.

Separately, I need a capability to go back in history to see what the actual on-time arrival statistic was for a specific flight on a specific date. I tried www.amadeus.net but it does not allow you to go back. Does anyone know where to find this go-back capability?

The BTS has an archive function, but would work of course only for departures. UIO keeps a departure and arrival board, but it's only for current activity. I posted a long way back that the AA flight was a few minutes late; I don't know if Copa has any data.

I'm sure you all looked this over but here it is again:

No FN Usernames Left   @ sucks ( posted on 11/20/06 ) @ 1:46 pm

They're currently here in Miami. So far the teams I've seen (that I recognize) are:

*Rob & Amber (S7)
*Joe & Bill ("Team Guido" from S1)
*Charla & Mirna (S5)
*I think John Vito & Jill from S3 are also in it
-----------------
*At the gate, I only saw Romber and JVJ(?). I saw Charla & Mirna talking to the ticket agent getting their tickets, and cutting a bit for the camera just after they purchased them. There were two other teams and Team Guido after them. I think Team Guido was the last team in line, but again it was hard to tell, because they were in a big cluster including the 6 cameramen and sound guys assigned to them. All I know is some tall guy with kind of a big nose wearing something that looked (from a distance) like a straw cowboy hat was up at the counter talking to the agent.

* They're at Gate A7 of Miami International Airport waiting for an American Airlines flight to Quito, Ecuador
* I thought they were scheduled to leave at 3:05, but it turns out they were leaving at 3:50; so I got there too early to see all the teams
* Romber was done at the ticket counter about half an hour before Charla and Mirna. By the time Charla & Mirna left, 2 or 3 teams had caught up. Charla almost left her passport and ticket with the ticket agent. He had to call her back to get them.
* I don't know if this will help, but Rob & Amber were wearing their matching Red Sox caps, and Team Guido were wearing their fleece jackets with "Team Guido" stitched into the back. So, if the players were instructed to dress similar to the way they dressed last time they were on the show.
