Notes from the Preview:

- go to Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto for next clue (drive? train?)
- fly a drone - one team member operates controls while the other directs blind or with special googles (similar to Robo Quest challenge)
- cutting the cheese  :funny: at a cheese farm, Thunder Oak Cheese Farm?
- ax throwing, table hockey at an arcade - possible face-off? Wacky's restuarant & arcade has games and right next door Northernaxperts Axe Throwing Lounge  :funny:

There's like one in that lengthy list of sponsors we haven't seen yet, Dairy Farmers of Canada. Guessing that's the cheese task.

Interesting there's still no sign of a U-Turn/One-Way.

Based on the little GIF they tweeted last night, at the ROM they presumably will have a bunch of stamps and have to figure out the two forming the name of where they're going.

First few caps are of teams in front of Union Station in Toronto. So likely teams took a train down to Toronto and then took a taxi to ROM.

CBC Radio interview from yesterday with the Lakehead University professor who designed the drone task. Not too specific, except how they planned it to come up with something unique.

They took the 20 hour bus ride to Thunder Bay? You don't hear of distances like that on Amazing Race anymore o_o

Hard to tell what the timing was like in filming. As I recall, we got almost nothing from them in Charlevoix.

The 20 hr Bus ride to Thunder Bay is possible. They were spotted in Quebec city May 10 and they next time they are seen is Thunder Bay 3 days later, May 13.

That would be one heck of a bus ride.

Kitchener to La Malbaie is 1,031 km. Another 942 back to Toronto. To Thunder Bay is another 1,400.

=3,373 km.

...They really designed this double-leg to wear them down.

TARC released Thunder Bay photos on facebook - notes below:

Terry Fox Monument is a Route Info spot (we see the envelope)
The Shell gas station stop has the Face Off envelope.

The Detour seems to be Cheese or Drone. Cheese - Aarthy & Thinesh, Lauren & Joanne while Drone - Sam & Sarah, Dave & Irina, and Anthony & James. At the Drone location there are moose on the board - maybe have to spot them and put on board in proper place?

Dave & Irina are seen axe throwing while Sarah & Sam are playing air hockey. TIFN
