Tiny detail, but you could add that there was a Speed Bump in the leg after Morocco, although we don't know its location.

That has NOT been confirmed. Possible but there is no real confirmation right?

Right, haven't actually seen a Speed Bump sign. For all we know, that could have been part of the "twist", axing off the Speed Bump for something else this season.

Isn't it?
Phil mentions speedbump to the NBA team on the mat in France. ???

Since oval seems to have taken that as confirmation of the NEL in Morocco (it's on the timeline), I figured the same video also proves there was a speedbump.

Okay yes I get it now. I thought you were talking about an unknown location leg, not speed bump location.

Leg 8/9? will be taking place in Manama, Bahrain and should add into the timeline.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

^^ I think it's clear at this point we've 'missed' a leg somewhere. Should be on leg 9 or beyond.

I think we've got everything so far! They usually take an extra day off when going to/coming from Africa because of the long flights and multiple connections involved.

I agree that a second Zimbabwe leg is most likely, but my understanding was that we have no evidence to confirm another leg there. Hence why we're 'missing' a leg.

You can probably add Chiang Mai as leg 10 on Oct 21 and Hong Kong as leg 11 on Oct 22.  :sab

If the Twins was confirmed 6th in Harare, doesn't it make the Debater safe that leg?

Due to a late night leg is going to be happened in Hong Kong, I think they may finish the leg at night
And may start the finale leg on October 23 afternoon-night

Agreed that it'd be a night leg in Hong Kong. Otherwise, there's no good reason to spoon-feed flights between Chiang Mai and Hong Kong.

There hasn't been any consistency in the past few seasons on when the finale leg takes place:
In TAR 29 they waited in Seoul for a full extra day-and-a-half before flying to Chicago.
In TAR 28 they left Shenzhen for a flight out of Guangzhou the very same night at 12:30am.
In TAR 27 they spent the night in Hong Kong and left the next morning at 9:30am.

Considering it's a night leg, it's unlikely production would schedule a flight leaving for the US tonight (LAX at 12:05am, SFO at 12:30am). More likely teams would spend the night in Hong Kong and leave tomorrow (23 Oct), giving us an arrival in the US for the finale on 23 Oct. Although it's also possible they go to Seoul route (extra rest after a night leg) and run the finale on 24 Oct instead.

So watch out for the finale back in the States on 23 or 24 Oct!

Correction on finale location, Oval.

It's AT&T Park, the San Francisco Giants. AT&T Stadium is the Dallas Cowboys.

I believe, based on the sightings and the video of the skiers talking to the guy at AT&T Park, the task was:

They needed to find out how many career home runs Willie Mays hit (660). Then proceed to the kayaks to search for three baseballs with the numbers 6, 6 and 0 which they would give to the umpire who would give them the next clue.

So on the timeline, AT&T Park/Willie Mays Plaza first for the cluebox, then Pier 40/South Beach Harbor for the kayaks.  :D

Also, SFO would technically be a Route Maker too since they received a clue from someone in the Arrivals Lobby after they exited. Based on the photos posted.

Also, the 660 was on the Mays' statue right where they were standing.  I think that's a cool detail, don't know if anyone even noticed, or they just all looked for someone with a smart phone.

Here are a few more details on San Francisco.  They got the clue at the Willie Mays statue and then ran to South Beach Harbor/Pier 40.  They kayaked to McCovey Cove, part of the Bay right next to AT&T park.  Upon completion of the task, they left in zodiac boats.  They did some unknown task and then arrived by boat at Pier15/Exploratorium.  From there, they went to Chinatown.

Yes it's correct. The Giants home ballpark is called AT&T Park, not AT&T Stadium.

I don't think Maanca meant it was the Finish Line, just a "finale location"
