I'm not sure if anyone in this forum watches TAR Canada, but I've really enjoyed it the last few summers. In some respects, it's even better than the original because it frequently has more challenges and they are frequently harder than the ones on the U.S. version. In the first episode of the season, the teams started in St. John's, Newfoundland where they had to listen to and decode a message in Morse Code which told them to fly all the way across the country to Vancouver, B.C. , where one of the team members had to walk a tightrope suspended between two portions of the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, then the Detour was Pedal or Paddle, where they either had to play bike polo or row a dragonboat. Then they had to find Jon in the middle of a hedge maze for the Pit Stop. The second episode took them way north to Fort McMurray, Alberta which was ravaged by a massive forest fire last year. The Roadblock required one team member to climb around a very large, suspended adventure park looking for clues. There were also three Express Passes hidden on the course, and they were all three found by the same team. They have to give two of them away. The Detour was Pump It or Pull It. Pump It required the teams to carry a water pump to a nearby pond, then figure out how to get it working, hook up a length of hose, and put out a fire burning on the other side of a field. Pull It required teams to hit 15 clay pigeons with a .20 gauge shotgun. Then they had to complete a complicated math problem to determine how much fuel a helicopter needed to carry given a certain set of variables. Then a helicopter took them to Miskanaw Golf Club where they had to run around the course to find Jon. The third episode had the teams flying back to B.C. The teams were given Chevrolet Bolts to drive and the team that arrived at the pit stop having used the least amount of electricity would win $5,000. They flew to Castlegar, where the first challenge had required the team to inspect a sample campsite, and then go to ten other similar campsites and determine the difference in each from the sample. Then they had to deliver bags of coffee beans on foot in the very hilly town of Castlegar. Then they had to drive to the town of Nelson where the Roadblock required one team member to swing from a bridge and drop into the water, retrieve a clue from a buoy, and then swim the rest of the way across the river. The Detour required the teams to choose between Strike It or Throw It. Strike It required the teams to form two coat hooks out of metal, using a blast furnace, hammers, and an anvil. Throw It required teams to make two cups out of clay on a pottery wheel. They then had to locate Jon on a beach beside a river. If anyone else here is watching, I'd love to discuss the show.
