Poster said 9 teams. So NEL or Save was used? :P

What did you mean? If NEL or Save, it should be 10 teams.

Shetland islands are really far north so they have a lot of light for filming tomorrow.
Sun rises at 3:48 am and sets at 10:18 pm (BST) for 18h 29m of daylight.
But the sky will stay light (at least a bit) almost all night. Length of Visible Light  21h 29m

Dumb mistake. I thought this was Leg 4 already :P

Dennis & Isabelle!? They're out in round 2??

edit: I saw the Live Sightings Thread. I can't believe they're at risk this early.

We don't know yet but other 9 teams were seen by spoiler (see sighting thread). So they might survive if NEL or Save was used and spoiler did not see them somehow.

There has never been a Leg 2 Non-elimination. So don't get your hopes up. :(
But it's amazing that we're getting so much information! Just a question: do you guys prefer seeing them, then having them disappear for a week before reappearing?

I am in love!! One of my places of the heart, I am thrilled they are going there. I spent two weeks in the Shetlands years ago for the "Up Helly AA" Viking festival. We had a great farmhouse at the very northern tip of the islands and peat fires....  :luvu:
Birding is a huge sport and Shetland ponies are everywhere, I feel a task coming on!!

But oh my, driving on the right and maybe stick will be a challenge! Hope no one ends up in a BOG!!

Looking around for what, "The Puffin," is in Lerwick -all I seem to find is endless articles explaining why puffins are so tied to the Shetlands, not helping :lol:

This will be a shameless plug for Ford Focus (like all of them)...from the train station to the ferry port is 0.3 miles, and Google Maps recommended walking.  :P

They will be taking the cars on the ferry with them I assume, as they are required to drive when they arrive.

There may never have been a NEL in Leg 2, but you'll never know. :) Still, I think that team has been booted out already. I just wonder how. ??? Spec: Maybe it has something to do with the guy giving them some shortcut card at the airport, and they probably incurred a penalty. Or, I think they had a bad cab. Potentially strong teams from previous seasons were devastated by the bad cabs.

PUFFIN CAMs!

And there is an atmospheric Clickimin Broch outside Lerwick that would be a good place for a task...

They're on the same flight with Shelley & Nici and they're on the back of the pack. The leading from the airport may be just some minutes and they just lost it later.

Is it just a coincidence that the Shetland Island webcams are down right now? Or am I paranoid?

Shetland Islands Webcams
We have installed a number of webcams at locations all over Shetland, providing live streams of Lerwick town centre, Sumburgh Head Lighthouse or Eshaness to name a few.

* The Shetland Webcam service is currently unavailable - sorry for any inconvenience *

Alas - no Puffin Cam.

We have been very lucky this season with people happening to be in the right place at the right time, or realizing they can be at the right place in time. (There's a pun there somewhere.)
But it makes for a more interesting season when it airs because we'll be asking "why?" "why?" (and you can read that any way you want, they all fit! :) )

I can't see a bad cab being the issue especially in London which have some of the best taxi drivers in the world

...LOL, self driving on the right, oh boy!!

So far, except for NY, all transportation/driving has been on the right. USVI, England, Scotland, Shetland are all LHT/RHD (left hand traffic / right hand driving) territories.

If the trend continues, Wales, Ireland, Malta, Cyprus, South Africa, Mozambique, Mauritius, may be next... just a thought.

After the Shetland Islands, maybe they could be headed for the Faroe Islands as well?

Hopefully they visit a new European country this time. Perhaps Andorra, Luxembourg, Monaco, San Marino or an Eastern European country.
