Pit Start - Lake Powell
Drive yourselves to Monument Valley, Utah. Once there search John Ford's Point for your next clue.

And I will just die if they go on that same dirt road that goes down the cliff.

Can someone get the address for the Olympic Park ski jump?  I may be able to make some time of day estimates if it shows up in high res Google Earth.

Oh boy, a two-week holiday!!!

That's the mother of all spoilers.  What's left?  Who gets to layer on all their clothing again!!  Pretty sure this is NEL.

And who gets to YIELD whom?  Linz seem first at the ski jump; do they Yield the Weavers (again?)

But actually we had it pretty well laid out before the spoiler showed up.  Just didn't have the campout or is that trailerout on the night of July 24 at Green River State Park. And that it was a two-day leg. But with over 500 miles of driving it makes sense to spread it out.  Only two people get to ride the helicopter - bah humbug!  And a new twist in that they must decide who is to do the ROADBLOCK before opening the clue!! And then an overnight in Salt Lake City

So now that they seem to leave early July 26 (or July 27 if we have another 36-hour pit stop) in Salt Lake City, maybe leg 10 starts off with a dawn balloon ride in Park City??

Then I think it is off again for Jackson Hole and Yellowstone Wyoming - 280 miles.

Hey, I knew about the 2-day aspect.  Yep!  See the timeline.  I put it there.   mmmm-hmm    :roll:

Thanks Puddin.  But, I can't do Google Earth at the computer that I am at right now. 

Turns out I don't need GE because GMaps has it.

Acutally, this computer is so lame I can't get the ski jump promo shots to show (it only gets the first 30 or so of your page one collection).

We have a lot of time.  It may help to get more shots of the bikes and Gemini part.  I should be able to get times there too.  And the leader there will get the best morning departure tiime to go find Bart.

But Bart is dead so what's up with that?

Bart is dead but Little Bart is alive and well. From Vitalground.org:

"Little Bart and Honey Bump - Two interior Alaskan brown bear cubs, orphaned when their mother was killed near Paxson, Alaska, were delivered April 26, 2000 to Doug and Lynne Seus, founders of Vital Ground. Bart and Honey-Bump made their Hollywood debut as the offspring of "Archie" (played by Tank) in Dr. Dolittle 2. They are also the obvious stars of the Animal Planet specials GROWING UP GRIZZLY and the new GROWING UP GRIZZLY 2. Bart, at 1,100 pounds, is by far the larger of the two. "

Thanks Sups.

I bet that 'bountiful' picture of the Weasels is related to Bart's house.

For the shadows of the ski jump I haven't got results yet but basically, if you can see the promo shots, if the sun is coming from the jumpers right it is AM and if from the left it is PM.  If it is shining right down the track it's about noon.

The Rolly pix are driving me nuts.  I thinkthey are image reversed.  Puddin, can you put up some context shots?  I can't make sense of all those rails and shadows.

I figured it out.

The "Rolly" shots are a pro jumper.  He shows up in the background of the Nick shot.  And the jump in the background is steeper (I think, need to confirm).

Looks like it here.

That spoiler is just TOO GOOD - could it indeed be a plant?  If not, then some staff member is looking for a new job. Talk about breaking confidentiality.

If ski jumps are around mid-day, then the pit stop probably will be reached by mid afternoon.  Which means probably a odd number of hours pit stop so that teams leave at dawn on July 26.  This still leave four days before the the final four teams show up in Montreal on July 30.  A 36 hour pit stop would take away another day so that only three are left for Whyoming, Montanta and Toronto.

We're getting down to the final nitty gritty,folk.

At first I was doubtful of the spoiler: it was a first-time poster, much of the info had already been uncovered, and I always doubt the "cast or racer left something behind" spoiler. I'm still a little skeptical, but the vantage points do seem to match up with elephant butte. I used this map and Google Earth to fly to the top of the butte for these crude caps: first, compare the road cap #24 with the view of Indian Route 42; second, compare the monument cap #30 with this shot of Merrick butte (see photo) with the East and West Mittens in the background. And it's possible to land a helo up there: an account (here, bottom of the page) of a commercial shoot gone wrong.

Careful there, Slowhatch, don't be given away too much.

Adding that over night in a trailer in Green River State Park was a nice touch.

Nobody has said it yet but this does look like a library.

You probably wouldn't be able to pull that out of looking at the promo itself.

ETA:  Leg 8?  Okay, let's check.

I got the context of the Rolly looks-like shot now by running the promo on my better computer.  Puddin, what I mean is just more frames (if any) that come before the ones posted.  That shot is of some jumper going down the far jump (the farthest of the four to the jumper's right).  There is a railing behind (as in further back) that jumper for the stairway on that side of the four jumps.  Also in the shot is the railing for the stairway that our jumpers use to get up to their start position.  And there is one more thing in there that was adding to the confusion but is now resolved.  That is a sequence of black lines that are marked into the other two jumps at regular intervals (maybe to help the jumpers judge their speed).  Those were looking like shadows at first.

What we need is a shot of the Weevils* and the Godlewskis to get the Roadblock finshing order.

*Can you tell I'm pricked by this team?

Huh?  "Sweets"   (:;)
