I'm skipping around seasons, now on season 5.

I am definitely going to go sledging in new Zealand. It looks wicked! I love alternative white water activities, we did canyoning in Croatia. I want to go to new Zealand just for sledging
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.

Why skip?
There's lots of flashbacks and references to previous seasons, especially as the series goes on.

I originally wanted to avoid the beginning Bec the quality was terrible. So I picked a random season, 11. Then I decided let me try an find an earlier one with decent quality, so I'm on 5 now

The problem is that they often have repeat racers, all star seasons, repeat tasks, etc.

You'll lose a lot of context jumping around.

Do you think going straight from season 5 would suffice? The earliest seasons just have terrible quality
