Kevin and Drew find the route marker, which has an arrow under it pointing off the road. "What do you think that arrow means?" Kevin asks. "I don't know, but I gotta pee here, so I might as well pee right here by the route marker." Marker, indeed. Lots of banter about "stupid" and "Drew is a dumb-ass," and Drew is doing the Unzipping-And-Peeing Shuffle for about six steps forward. These guys are a traveling road show of unparalleled proportion, I'll tell you that. "Watch for spitting cobras!" Drew says as he endeavors to relieve himself in the desert. "There's the flag, you idiot!" Kevin yells, taking off at a run. Drew follows, still doing some adjusting of body and clothing. Turns out there are a couple of arrows that lead you off the road, so the boys have to go get back in the SUV.
Lenny and Karyn, talking about "the last yellow rock." It's very hard to follow, but they're not doing too well.
Margarita is trying to figure out how to use a compass. She has the red needle lined up with the N, and now she's trying to figure out what that means. "How does that indicate where we're going?" she asks. Eek! How do you explain that from the front seat where Frank is? When the red needle is on the N, the compass reflects, you know, the actual state of things, Margarita! Even I know that, and all I ever did in Brownies was learn to make rock paperweights and administer CPR.
Lenny and Karyn pass Frank and Margarita going the opposite direction. Hard to know for whom that's bad news, because they're both having bad days, basically. "[Frank and Margarita] already came from this way," Karyn says in a guarded tone. "What the hell is going on?" No kidding. This whole sequence is hard to figure out, in terms of whether teams are doing what they should be doing. The information with which we're provided needs something right along here, but I'm not sure what it is. I may need a map and a compass myself.
Esquire. They find the same little roadside building Kev and Drew found, and they look for a flag, too. None is evident.
Over at Team Cockroach, Paul is berating Amie for being sick. Sad, but true. "Can you hold the compass, or you can't do that?" he asks, as she tries not to throw up again. He explains about lining up the red needle and the N, and then he makes all sorts of comments about whether she can "figure that out" or whether it's "too hard." Sort of unkind, there, Paul. I'm not sure he can see how green around the gills she really is.
