Speculation and Discussion of the **SPOILERS** WORKZONE!!
« on: June 07, 2023, 02:18:17 PM »

This thread is theWORKZONEof our spoilers. [/b]

This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 36 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread.
It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean. [/color]




(If the start is LIVE, then we will use that thread for all sightings Start to Airport Departure.)

ALL Discussion of the LIVE Sightings and comments on them go here!



As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand, we would love to know, so please feel free to PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!

This thread will be opened once the race is beginning. (not yet!  :0328: )
RFF's Golden Rule:
Have RESPECT for each other, regardless of opinion. This of course includes no flaming/insulting other users and/or their posts.

Worth noting, we believe that teams still haven't landed in Bangkok yet. I'm sure Xoruz will post flight information at some point.

Looking at the flights that departed LAX last night, I'm guessing the flight was LA --> Seoul --> Bangkok, as the Seoul flight at 11:00pm was the only flight that had Thai Airlines listed, but that's just a guess.

They're going through Taipei. Not completely known if they are using two flights, but it would make sense with a task in LA and it's feasible.

I just check the flight from LA to Taipei
It is scheduled to arrive at 05:31 in Taipei time
So 10 more minutes

In the video at LAX, does it seem like Anna & Steve are having some type of problem with their passport?

I'll bet that the first Roadblock was to determine the flights on which every team would be.

No, because there's photographic proof of a reused location from Season 26 (Blind Date Edition): the temple from the "Water" side of the Detour where teams went after eating century-eggs.

34 and 35 checked off most of the non-Asian countries named in 33's planned route, so 🤞 for Nepal (and maybe Vietnam) <3

We've waited a long time for it to be visited. Covid made it longer just as we were finally going to get it

There are very few Thailand sightings whenever the teams go to Thailand tbh
The last time they went to Thailand we figured out is from the airport

Do you think TAR will be circumnavigating the globe going westwards? Do you think they will do a few stops in the U.S. before the final location?

I don't have inside knowledge like the mods do however I think it's likely they circumnavigate the world westbound visiting two or three countries in Europe that 33 and 34 didn't visit (Ireland, Finland, Latvia, etc) after Asia, some African countries are possible to also be visited. I don't believe they will do legs in the US (other than the final), but I could see them visiting Canada for the penultimate leg.

They had the perfect "scenario" to visit Canada in S35 and they wasted, it seems to me that they are not interested.

They've said in the past that they don't want to because it's too similar to the US. The only place that would be good for a leg is far up north where the culture's very different.

Anywhere else is better left covered by TAR Canada.

Wonder if they could rework their Lulea leg to take place in the summer?

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm curious to know how long the Pit-Stops are gonna be, and when we should expect to see them again.

I think it's likely that leg 2 will be either Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, or Vietnam.

I speculate Leg 2 is in Thailand
Very likely replicate S33 route with Krabi as Leg 2
So I do think they may do a bus ride from Bangkok? (See TAR 9 with the bus terminal)
Then the Krabi leg may take like a day .
