Bourkie, you mean filming would take place between third week of June to second week of July?

In my truly opinion I posted at the other thread filming to start by June 15 (Friday) to July 8 (Sunday), a total of 24 day race.

I disagree with Honolulu start but I rather have a SoCal start in Oxnard (go to previous posts) and would involve a first task to search a sailboat in the Channel Islands Harbor. Honolulu seems very unlikely. The 31st race should get a final leg in Miami and would take a final challenge at Hard Rock Stadium to order the name of the places in the Pit Stop during the race. The finish line would probably take place at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Fort Lauderdale, a city north of Miami. The race haven't had a Florida visit since TAR 18.

I agree, but TAR will most likely not visit Ukraine any time soon, the last time they visited Ukraine Phil got detained. Ukraine is also at a 2, so I think they might not want to risk going there.

Damn, actually, an eastward route with NA > Europe > Africa > Asia (> Oceania) > SA > NA would be really cool. Has there ever actually been an eastward route with an SA penultimate leg?

There are people (the weird ones) who think Jamaica is a South America territory simply because they don't acknowledge Central America and don't consider it as part of the North, so then S7 would be the only "eastward"-traveling one by technicality even though it's a looped route.

Also, I've been wishing for a holiday-themed leg for a while now :cheer: :jam: :reindeer :HNY: :2hearts: Here is my grievance list:

En route
Valentine's Day - Paris, France (Wall of Love, kissing booth Roadblock! :lol:, Pont des Arts love locks, The Louvre!, Moulin Rouge)
Saint Patrick's Day - Dublin, Ireland (all the good luck - Fast Forward, clover and rabbit's foot charms - and bad luck - U-Turn and unavoidable penalties - harnessed in one leg!)
Passover - Jerusalem, Israel (Kosher locusts-gefilte fish, Shabbat task, kashering a kitchen, dradle task, Seder run-through Fast Forward)
Dia de Los Muertos - Oaxaca, Mexico (Calaveras, intricate perforated paper pattern, barbacoa and grinding mezcal, Monte Alban Pyramids)
Christmas - Rovaniemi, Finland (Santa Claus Village Detour, reindeer farm, Lampivaara Amethyst Mine, Christmas chalets, Aurora Boreale maybe)

Finales
Mardi Gras - New Orleans (Mardi Gras World, voodoo shop, Hand Grenade cocktail, so many beads, masquerade, King's Cake)
Thanksgiving - Boston (Paul Revere House-Independence Trail, Savenor's Market for turducken task, Plimoth Plantation, gridiron football agility/strength drills @ Gillette Stadium)

These all sound so delightful!! I second all of these ideas!
It was so pissing off when they took a raincheck for Paris in s26 (ahem, a dating oriented season), and then visited it in s27. *sigh*

Putting this here for those users sent here from the TAR 31 subsection-

As the title says, what do you want to see in future editions of TAR?   :jam:

- Per georgiapeach, route maps and other large images should not be posted in-thread; a link to the image file should be fine, as well as this site.
- It should go without saying but this is a spoiler-free thread. If you're posting something that specifically refers to a currently-airing or currently-filming (be it the American version or any from another country) season hide it under spoiler tags:

[spoiler*]blahblahblah[/spoiler*]

but without the *. :)

Happy theorizing!  :conf:

You should not be posting anything about Season 31 or 32 in a non spoiler thread.
If you want to post a wishlist for this season that is fine, but it SHOULD NOT include any known location spoilers.

Thanks Zack!

Here's my wishlist of countries that I have in mind:

* Havana, Cuba - Nice place here. Teams will drive vintage cars here.
* Bilbao, Spain - If possible, it should be paired with Madrid.
* Split, Hvar, and Zagreb ( Croatia ) - These are locations that has yet to visit. Love to see them head to the capital city of Croatia.
* Santorini, Rhodes, and Mykonos ( Greece ) - Such beautiful places that teams can visit it is a must.
* Azores, Algarve Region, Porto (  Portugal ) - one of these places give a breathtaking view for teams to see.
* Sofia and Burgas, Bulgaria - two of the new country's places are good.
* Finland - yes, we need a full leg in this snowy country.
* France - Northern region of France again like Lille, Normandy Region, Lyon, etc.
* Germany - Frankfurt and Wiesbaden, need to say more?
* and the rest of the European Countries like Ireland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Luxembourg, etc.
