quick question, who rides in the car when a team member is driving, and in the taxi? because unless the audio guy sits on the lap of the cameraman or on the roof, there is no place for him is there? or what happends then?
Dave (and Steve and Geezer),
First of all i just wanted to say you guys are really great to answer all these questions for us fans! And I wanted to thank you for the great laughs you guys gave us on the show.
Now my real questions... what teams did you really get along with? Do you still keep in touch with the other teams?
Also I wanted to know what your favourite Detour or Road Block did you enjoy the most and which one (if any) did you suprise yourself with? And were there any countries that you are planning to go back to see more of?
I'm not sure I understand the question 100%, but...

(And if you were to bet that Steve, myself, and a sound man couldn't fit in the back seat of a Fiat taxi, you would lose...uncomfortable as hell though!)
No, thank you for watching!

All of the detours/roadblocks were pretty cool, but I really enjoyed the Bach/Mozart detour in Vienna (because of the scenery involved); and the rappelling near Marseilles (because it was just plain fun). Steve actually surprised me (a little) with the bungee because he did it with no fear or hesitation. Strange that a guy who gets queasy in the upper deck at Sox Park could jump that easily.
And I'd really like to go back to Vienna. It is a beautiful city. The people we met in Amsterdam (Holland) were very friendly, and I think I might like to visit there again as well.
Thanks for the answer, that's what I meant
Thanks for the answers Dave!
I have another one though For the teams previously eliminated, I know you all stay in what you guys have fondly called "sequesterville", I've always wondered how you guys know which of the remaining teams was eliminated? Does CBS have people give you updates on the race or do you only find out once the eliminated team arrives at sequesterville? And as long as we're on the subject - how was life in sequesterville? I'm thinking room service and spa treatments all day ... after all, you guys deserve it
LOL... thanks for the expalnation, I alwys wondered about the sitting arrangements in cars and taxies...

Thanks for Steve! I wonder what's Thank You in Spenchlian?
If I may ask a question to Dave or anybody know the answer, would be greatly appreciated ...
I am wondering about the amount of cash, are you allowed to bring your own money or credit card during the race ? I know that cash are given prior to departure. However, the amount are limited and also there's an emergency money from what I understand. Stranded in a foreign country with little money and have to beg ( in case R&C ) do sound stressful and unappealing. Would you feel rather safe if you have at least your own $ 500 with you ?

You can bring...zero, zip, nada, zilch. Also no credit cards, phone cards, or even Player's Club cards!
