Really Limited reach the water and begin swimming. It's odd to see everyone swimming by lying on top of their bags, but I suppose that's the only way they can bring their gear with them. The swim ends up being somewhat of an equalizer. Valley Girls pass up S.W.A.T. and The Moustaches transition quickly out of the water to reclaim first place. Very quickly it becomes apparent Ike is lagging behind on the hike and AJ reveals Kari's got a stomach problem and has been running off to the bushes frequently. They're still able to pass up Really Limited, as is every other team. Jeff, the total dude he is, just says to Ike it's OK, they can drink beers tonight. Ike insists they're not giving up, and Jeff concedes that they won't, but he's really making an effort to ensure Ike doesn't feel any dishonor in any of this. They suppose there's always the chance someone makes a colossal mistake. Meanwhile, Akbar's Players get the idea to try sprinting past all the other teams on the hike. They're able to move up to second. Out ahead of them, John's ankle is bothering him and he starts getting mad the team has been going too fast for him. It's a bit of first-world problem compared to Ike being pissed at himself for causing his team to be in last place. Again, Jeff just says to enjoy the day. It's really become hard not to like these guys. They actually do start enjoying the day. Blind Guy Erik says it's weird that because of this open space they're in he's unaware of his surroundings for the first time in the expedition and it's kind of nice. The terrain of the long hike is a beautiful open plains area with sporadic bushes. It would've been the ideal terrain for Really Limited before Ike's injury.
