So I'm not expecting a huge city as the final destination due to the cast and possible spoilers.
It's Clobbering Time!

I think France was not likely visit anyways since we just have a Monaco-French Riviera leg and Paris leg on past 2 consecutive seasons.


Speaking of European countries judging the terrorism and the refugees crisis, it's the good chance to visit the under utilized countries like Czech Republic, Lithuania, Estonia, Ireland, Iceland, and Finland or a new countries like Slovakia and Latvia.
TAR25: The best HD season since TAR18.
TARAS3/UB2 Potential Contestant:
Kym & Alli / Shelly & Nici (25), Hayley & Blair (26), Tanner & Josh / Denise & James Earl / Tiffany & Krista (27)

Virtually everywhere in Europe is okay to be visited.

I watched some videos of team annoucements and came across the Pro Frisbee Players, Kurt Gibson & Brodie Smith announcement video, they said that they learned and practiced driving a stick shift. Could that hint a possibility that there will be self-driving legs and I wonder who are the "sponsors"  ???

They probably just said that because they studied the race well enough to know that learning to drive stick is one of the cardinal rules.

That is a possibility, I just do hope that we will see self-driving legs in this season.  :hearts:

Well, everyone ready and excited for tomorrow? :)

I've been down on this season, but if the route is good, that'll really make the difference.

Even after all this Europe is still safest continent, like seriously this is just an incident, Europe didn't turn into a war zone all of a sudden. Don't overreact.
Well, it wasn't just an incident.  Again, TAR has pulled out of countries last minute for far less things.
It's not overreacting to speculate that countries like France, Turkey, Belgium, Greece may be avoided because of security concerns, even before Friday.

I'm sure the producers just want to play it safe.

Perhaps the route could be

1. North America - Asia - Oceania - South America - North America
2. North America - Oceania - Asia - Southern Africa - South America - North America

Perhaps the countries in the Caribbean can be visited if there are no hurricanes expected. There are still numerous safe countries in the Caribbean that can be visited.

I hope it's not a plenty "double legs" route again, like TAR24, because of the accidents in Europe...

Manila is off the list for now, due to "possible terrorist attacks" that's spreading across my social media pages. :ascared

Oh, and tons of flights were cancelled because of that. :res:

Caribbean and Central America are totally safe for now, preventing to avoid gang violence in some of Central American countries such as Honduras and El Salvador.

There are no true threats in our country, this is just local Philippine social media being Dbags.

Flights were NOT cancelled because of that, but due to the current APEC summit (:

I really, REALLY hope they drop by Central America, especially Guatemala. I was just there & those 2 other countries you mentioned last month, and I felt safer in Guatemala than when I was in Brazil & LA.

... But you know, government travel advice tend to exaggerate stuff so  )-**
