In case y'all were wondering where the Wrigley webcam was, well it's right here (Sports World Chicago).   :snicker:  (note: updated with latest photo)

Kinda reminds the TAR veterans of 'kayak cam' (....think about it).   :spy:

Ninh Binh:

So last year I actually traveled to Ninh Binh. It's a few hours by bus from Hanoi and is referred to as "halong bay on land". It has GORGEOUS mountains just popping straight up out of the land. You can walk up a super tall staircase to the top of one (about 30-45min up if I remember correctly) to a giant golden dragon and overlook the whole area.

There is also a river system that goes through and around the mountains. Unique fact: the boat drivers row using their feet. They lean back on their seat and use their feet to row, which could inspire some type of rowing challenge.

There are also a lot of rice fields.

The city itself is nothing special, I think they'd have gone straight out to these mountain ranges for the tasks. It's going to be an absolutely stunning location.

Two teams in that picture.

Why is the road blocked off, do we know?

Smart teams check through their bags on the last leg. To be carrying a full pack on the finale leg is crazy.  At least lighten the load.

Has anyone else noticed the presence of a "minder" running with the teams this season? I noticed them on the Venice leg as well. Guess they are useful for handling fans/requests for selfies/etc.

If its in downtown then it should be because of the Taste of Chicago. Also, I have some sightings from O'hare but dunno if they will be of any use. Sorry I'm new here :/

I have this sighting from O'hare from yesterday morning. I think they probably came from Incheon because they were there at the right time for them to have just landed from the flight from Incheon. Hope this is helpful! This is only my second post :funny: I also have a 30 sec video but its too long to upload.  :(

Thanks TARmap! Do you know when the photo was taken?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Welcome TARmap  :waves:  Might be able to get the timestamp info found in the EXIF data of the ORIGINAL (large) file as downloaded from the camera.  Or you might try and right-click and click on file Properties to get additional info on ORIGINAL pic file.  Just a thought.

more spec
The amazing Coke Zero 400 stock car race was held at Chicagoland Speedway today.
pretty sure Daytona was the Coke Zero 400, I watched it :) I can't find any events on July 2 at Chicagoland 
Maybe all the Chicago sightings were a fake ending, and Chicagoland Speedway was the real finale? Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**

Interesting...could explain why we didn't see the racers in downtown Chicago till later in the day.  Raceway could have been the first destination after arriving on a early flight (from Seoul?) maybe.  Food for thought.

BTW, Olive Park was the finish line, as we have already speculated.

Well you know finales, they like to start off with something exciting that will look good for the previews. And a raceway would certainly fit the bill.

Making hot dogs, eh not so much :P

Exactly... but we need those nit-picky little tasks that frustrate the racers just before the dash to the finish line.... (kinda like assembling IKEA furniture)  :funny:  ...frustrates the hell out of me..  :grins:

I can also confirm that the Speedway was the first task of the day. *VROOOM*

Racers were heard asking for these locations;


City Hall
Wabash Bridge
Buckingham Fountain

What is not known is whether someone had told them a way to go using Bridge so they were asking for a landmark,  or is that a location, and if there was a clue box or anything else at fountain. But again, those locations were asked for SPECIFICALLY.

Water Tower may be a team going to the wrong location. :(

Then we have hotdog task to fit in here I think..

Then Wrigley for memory.

Milton Olive Park for Finish.

Anything missed?? ???

Neobie...may we have a MAP??   :hearts:

But I think Buckingham fountain should be closed because they are setting up for the Taste of Chicago???

Sounds about right IF they arrived from Korea aboard non-stop Korean Airlines flight KE37 which lands at approx. 9:30AM... given time for deplaning, customs, immigration... I'd say this fits the "around 11 o'clock" sighting estimate.  curious.....  :umn:

Edited to add: OK, according to Peach, looks like they were a little late in arriving.. even better  :snicker:

Just thinking out loud here.... as to why teams were not spotted going into/out of Korea.

Flying from Vietnam to Seoul not a problem, probably a lot of locals do not know about the show.  Perhaps the Korea leg was a night leg or not entirely in Seoul.  That would explain a lack of sightings.  Now comes the hard part, why no one has posted ANY pix of them going to Chicago (excluding our one sighting at O'hare), regardless of the origin point.  Surely there were some Americans on the flight.  A mystery for sure. Time will tell, as more posts could be coming after the Holiday.

Based on the sightings, we can now know that the teams entered the F3 are Logan and London, Tara and Joey and Scott and Brooke.
Fantastic!  I was all set to skip TAR29 when I found out that the one women's team got tossed second.  But I'll give it a watch now that it looks like the one men's team also got the boot at one point.

Not so happy it seemed to happen so late in the game, though.

So, we know who the final 3 teams are, right?  Problem is that they all look the same.

At least Team 4 and 8 do. I keep getting confused when I see them, trying to figure out which team is which. Team 3 looks different.
