LIVE sightings go here!  :hearts: And ONLY live sightings please!!
 
Comments on the sightings can go HERE >>that's where the real work takes place!
 
If you HAVE a live sighting to share, help us as much as you can with
WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what colour they are wearing is helpful)
WHAT are they doing
WHERE (as exactly as possible... street? airport gate? address? be specific!)
WHEN (what time zone?, exact time)
and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!
 
If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email me or walkingpneumonia, our emails are in our profiles. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM us if you register here.
 
IMPORTANT! If you find anything posted by someone working in any capacity for the race or by production, do NOT post it here, you can cost someone their job...or worse. Let me or walkingpneumonia know, and we'll see if it can be shared. Thanks!

Same goes for info on FUTURE legs, if you have a spoiler message one of the Detectives FIRST please.
 
If you are posting a tweet, please post the tweet, the tweet time, and LINK TO the twitter user name. Take a screencap if you can, tweets do disappear.
Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it.
 
Photos should be credited. If someone is kind enough to share some with us specifically, those should be marked with photo by...or photo credit to....when posting. Generally, pics posted on Flickr, Instagram, twitter are considered "public". Ask if you need help.
 
If you are posting a FB post, please quote the post, PLEASE include the time and date, but do NOT post the poster's name. Please do send georgiapeach and me  the link and name though so we can keep a full list for the Summary thread. 
 
If you find a BLOG, please check with  WP or me please before posting, we do try to ask the bloggers for permission to use their info and may be already waiting for an answer.
 
If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting, FB post or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM us to ask before you post.

 
 
The mods get grouchy if they have to move posts.... so any non-live sighting chatter WILL be deleted!
 
Big :ghug: to all of you who are bringing us info, we couldn't do this without you!!

On 12 December 1901, the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received here by Guglielmo Marconi in an abandoned fever and diphtheria hospital, which has since been destroyed by fire.[1] The transmission, in Morse code, originated from his Poldhu Wireless Station, Cornwall, UK.

Happy Birthday 4/25/17!


Perhaps in honor of his Birthday,

Teams had to Decipher an Audio Morse Code from the top of the Tower to reveal their next Location!

START LINE TASK:

COULD YOU IDENTIFY AN AUDITORY MORSE CODE CLUE?

Teams had to listen to the clue being broadcast loudly from the top of the tower, decipher the morse, and make out the location of their next Destination!

Major kudos to our own WP who could! :yess:
