I agree that there's problems with the viewpoint, and I'm having problems with the second "tower." But it's the best we've got right now. The task might be on a high point east of the entrance (see the picture here).

If this is all leg 7 (because of the TBC) then wouldn't that allow for a 2 hour finale?!  :happy:

Leg 7 - Episode 7+8
Leg 8 - Episode 9
Leg 9 - Episode 10
Leg 10 - Episode 11
Leg 11 - Episode 12
Leg 12/13 - Episode 13 ! ! !


Nevermind: apparently Leg 9 is listed as Episode 9. That's retarded! Maybe the descriptions are just wrong. If this is a TBC leg shouldn't it all be considered leg 7  :groan:

(:;) Excuse me Puddin! I do not appreciate that sub title :rotf:

I checked your links and there are some real good pictures .  It appears the task is on the same level as the castle.  The castle is on a hill.  The area level with the side of the castle that has the clock (within walled area) appears to have flowers and shrubs.  The area to the right of that is the stone walkway up to that area of the castle.  This walkway appears to be an incline.  Did you look at all of the Pieskowa Skala pictures at the link you provided?

Here's more pictures from a father/son.  They took pictures on the drive up to the castle and then the walk from the parking lot and the rest of the up to the castle.  There may be a picture from one of the windows by the clock tower looking out over the landscape (hill).  There are separate side of the castle and if I remember right the "out over the hill picture" was from the clock side and not the entrance side.  Go to Aug 17th pgs 125-145  http://www.firkowski.com/poland/

This castle being on top of a hill just throws me for a loop.     :gaah:       :dknow

Slowhatch and all--are y'all really having doubts or just trouble with the viewpoint?

red sox, nothing would please me more than to see an Australian leg. If you check the SPOILER thread way back, you will find my speculation that there would be an Australian leg to make it a 7 continent race. However, once the sighting for Macau was made the nail was put in that coffin. Simply put, there isn't time to go to Australia between the Dec. 10 sighting at Batu Caves and the Dec. 12 sighting in Hong Kong and there isn't time to go between Hong Kong and Guam because of the Dec. 14 hydrofoil sighting from Macau back to Hong Kong. C'est dommage, as the French would say.

This is from March 20 posting:

I'm much in favor of two legs in Poland.  There are umpteen places to go and do stuff in Poland, especially in Warsaw and Krakow.  Not to overlook the possible visits to Czestochowa, Auschwitz, and Wieliczka Salt Mine

Something tells me that today and tomorrow are going to go by...very...very...slowly  :groan:
 

And although it kills me to say this, but right now we are, or most of us are, saying that D/K come in first in this leg, but do we know for sure that E/D or U/J aren't ahead of D/K?

I wish we had some screen caps of them doing the detours so we can get the time, so now I will just have to pray until I here Phil say "Dustin and Kandice, You're Team Number 1!".  :angel:

BQ's ( we're guessing the BQ's do Pitch?)


Pitch Perfect
(We think C/M switch tasks)


Chateau d If :
This shot was taken here between 1:05 and 1:27 pm (assumes December 3,4,5?)
Picture perfect/ carry your dummy from a shop to a lab and get your dummy X-Ray'ed

haha puddin it's OK, I'll stick with this one  :rotf:  as long as people get that barbies = D/K!

I don't know the answer but maybe you do. IF there is a TBC leg during the first hour, would that make the entire two hour broadcast leg 7? Maybe the listings have it wrong or something.

Just a couple more pics for the "where are the horses?" debate...

I think they are out in my little red box somewhere, and i think that your second tower, Slowhatch, might just be the angle of the buildings in a shadow....

I like the little zodiac signs!

Now if I take the horizontal angle, and cosine it with the underboob shadow of Mirna, and then biplane it with the glare from Charla's helmet, what will I have?

Peach on the rocks! :lol: :lol3: :lol:
